I would really like to pick up a pair of chelsea boots, but I can't figure out whether to get brown or black. My typical look is a somewhat dark (but more faded toward the knees) pair of Levi 501's and a casual collared shirt, usually some shade of blue. I also recently picked up a nice black shirt and another turquoise shirt that I would maybe like to match with the boots. Usually I wear a pair of Chuck Taylors or a pair of suede Adidas tennis shoes, but I want to get just a little bit dressier. Right now I'm leaning toward black, not shiny of course. I've done a bit of research about whether black shoes goes with jeans at all, but I'm getting mixed signals. Some say it is a fasion faux pas and jeans should be worn with brown shoes (in which case I should pick up the brown chelsea boots). Others disagree. What are some thoughts on this?
