Shoes - help! - July 16th 2010, 02:26 PM

Hey all,

I've been gradually replacing my "teenager" wardrobe and the time has come to finally get rid of my runners And I need a bit of help with that.

At the moment I'm wearing mostly dark grey/black jeans, black/grey/white shirts and a natural brown leather jacket. To top it I have darkish brown hair and I may add a black collar to all that. My problem is I can't figure out if I should get black shoes to match the jeans, or brown to match the jacket. Any ideas?

Tnx

You could get a pair of both just change things up a bit.
But I would say if the natural brown leather is dark enough go with the black.

Just a general rule : black and brown = bad combination. Get black shoes.

She is right. Black and brown don't go well together, thats why I said if the brown was dark enough.

Thanks for the advice, yes I know brown + black isn't an ideal combination but it seems to work fine so long as the brown's not matte...

Of course, grey and brown is a great combination, so...

What kind of shoes are these? Dress or casual?

Casual, although not quite "canvas runners", still everyday shoes.

Too much black

I'd say just wear trainers. It depends how smart you like to be. It sounds like you like the idea of being quite smart, so yeah, black or grey.

i'd go with balck because it will go with more and give you more options... as brown won't work with nearly as much.

Black would be my choice. Black goes with many more things than brown.

mmmm yeah I'm starting to think that. At the moment the browns are standing out in front of the black/greys and the last thing I want to do is bring attention to my feet (hence why I'm replacing my pristine-white runners ). I may see what's on offer today.

Honestly, I hate black leather. My black dress shoes cost $70, my brown shoes were $200. I'm obsessively partial to high-tops, so here are two that could work for both casual and semi-dressy: Creative Rec Cesario and Clae Khan.

Actually after searching high and low for shoes I ended up with black leather!

It goes perfectly with my jeans (which all have pretty heavy stitching) and it'll match the collar, so I'm happy. Also it's so damn comfortable!
