I love suede shoes. But tobacco or cinnamon can look a little dark with some summer clothing. I've tried white bucks on and off again since the 80's and always felt they were "a little too much". I ran across these Alden suede shoes on the Ben Silver web site. They seem to be the ideal color and style for spring and summer.

Very much so... Clarks are the best bang for the buck

When I see classic white bucks like these ^^^^ I love the look. Just not on me for some reason. These are my current favorites for summer. The Alden would make a nice compliment for something a bit more dressy.
