Pretty tough to give a suggestion without knowing whether you are looking for workwear, casual-wear, etc., but how about a pair of brown wingtips? Stylish and versatile.

There are a ton of models out there from quality makers. PS Starrs are great, though expensive, if you are looking for a bit of an edge. The AE McClain is a nice if you want a more conservative look.

I don't see a *dressier* shoe in your list and it never hurts to have at least one such pair - depending on what you get, you may be able to use in various situations / combinations: with jeans, pants, heck - even shorts
(but I am not big on shorts combo)

I do have a few pairs of brown and black Bostonians to wear with suits, that's about it. But I think it'd be too much with anything less than a suit. They're regular oxfords with a cap toe.

not sure what the Bostonians are but for me plain cap toe oxfords go very well w/ jeans too. Of course, others may not like

in this case, and if you live in a warmer climate - I guess you could get some chucks - Varvatos or Purcels, whatever. Look at some Tod's / Hogans if you are prepared to spend more. Or Camper if not...

When in FL I wear leather sandals / flip flops all year long (granted, not for all looks or when I go to concerts, opera, etc. but still extremely often) but people here hate this
