    These are not the pants I am referring to, but the color is the same. The pants I have are very streetwear style.

    I can't figure out what colors go well with it. White sneakers look kind of stupid. Black just doesn't fit right. Most shades of brown kind of BLEND into the pant which makes the outfit dull. My blue all-stars look like shit with them. I think something the color of light brown Tims could be good, but I don't own any and do not want to go with the ghetto look. Any ideas? Thanks.

    Slightly OT, but I'm always looking for good ideas for tops to go with olive pants. Have a great pair of R&B olive wool trousers and it seems like I always default to black, dk brown, etc.

    With sneaks, just about anything. Blue, burgundy, orange will pop, white, lighter shades of brown like butterscotch and tan, etc.

    Black is fine. This shade of olive suggest milsurp and the style originators wore black footwear to fine effect.
