    And in my line of work, I don't need to be overly formal....I can do that if the need arises of course.

    I was tired of being 'uncomfortable' in the shoes I was wearing. Now granted I wasn't wearing Allan Edmonds either...but needed something a little more fashion forard and comfortable.

    I agree you can wear them with charcoal. But to me they look so informal if you're wearing wool dress trousers. That said, what's most important is how you feel when you wear them. Sounds like you've found what works for you.

    I did go with these from Nordstrom (now to figure out what to match with them) (my wife liked them and they looked great with jeans:

    And then also decided to go with these (Have them with the white bottom and they are ridiculously comfortable):

    So much so that I may order these as well:

    One other note...my wife was not a fan of the white bottom shoes/blazer/slacks combination. So nice work folks. The gray shoes were different, on sale...

    TBH I don't like any of those, and especially not for wool trousers, but if you are happy with them then good on you.

    Thank you, HB. That was my thinking as well.

    That said, I do own several pairs of shoes with white soles. All from a shoe shopping outing I made with my 20something daughters

    If it's accepted as ok where you work and you like it, then go for it!
    Gentlemen...greatly appreciate your input and feedback. I'll be out and about this weekend, we'll see what I come up with.

    I would only wear those with jeans and maybe some chinos. But not really my thing. I think they make the shoes look like athletic shoes.

    That said, I agree with [MENTION=19117]Ron[/MENTION] that the Clarks look best if you want the white soles.

    Out of these 3 choices I prefer the Clarks. The thinner sole is less "sneaker like" then the other two.

    If the pair of pants you have are a true charcoal, close to black in color, I would stay away from British tan, walnut, or any other light color. Those colors pair well with lighter greys, but are not the best match for darker greys. I would recommend going with a darker brown. Burgundy/merlot/Oxblood can also look good if you are looking for a little more flash without being flashy.
