Hello,

I am not sure about what suede boots to go for. I would like to wear them casual with dark blue jeans as well as with tweed suits.

Greetings

I can imagine both to look very good with denim or tweed.
Question is, in my eyes, whether you want your shoes to be a little of an eyecatcher (first option) or rather reserved (second option). The darker brown would also be easier to match to lots of different colours, if you don't completely trust your colour sense it might be better to go with the darker brown.
I'd take the first one, but that's just personal preference, objectively both would be a good choice.
BTW, what are they?

I'm not sure if the Loake Kempton (the first ones) picture from HerringShoes shows the true shade of the suede.





Same shoe. And I'm pretty sure that the Herring Campden is just their version of the Loake Kempton. Same last, different sole. Loake Kempton has a dainite sole, Herring Campden has a "leather sole with a rubber fore part". Both look good to me and I like the last as well.

Interesting! Same shoe, different sole? I found the Herring website pictures often don't show the true colours of the shoes.

They are mine now! Looks great with jeans, tweed and corduroy.

Still not shure about navy or black cloth trousers. Any opinions?
