    I agree with everyone else on most anything except really dark pants. I will say I usually opt for darker browns with dress shoes so if you have you basics set, walnut is a good addition, otherwise I would opt for a darker pair.

    I bought walnut strands to wear with a light grey suit on my wedding day, and it looked great. They are beautiful shoes, but I'm probably going to sell them because they don't go with anything else in my wardrobe.

    You could grab a pair of grey dress pants?

    This. AE walnut is pretty "bright". If you pair walnut shoes with other light or mid toned colors in warm hues (khaki chinos), they don't stand out quite as much. Even with light grey, they do "pop" a little. If this is your goal, then you can wear them with anything except really dark tones or other strong colors (not sure they would work with burgundy chinos).

    I have kind of fallen into a "dark brown" zone with my suits -- plain toe bluchers, or Ralph Lauren Sandersons (long wings made by AE), or tassel loafers; all seem to go with almost anything...

    Thanks for all the replies, although part of me was hoping to be talked OUT of getting a pair of walnut shoes . . .

    I'll wear them with white linen pants, light grey pants, and blue (light navy) pants. I've also done dark denim for the contrast but that's apparently a split topic on here.

    I'm actually kind of hesitant to wear them with khaki chinos because of the similar colors producing a too-similar-but-not-quite look - maybe that's just me? Anybody have pictures to convince me otherwise?

    I have a pair of walnut AE Strands. The general "rule" is to always wear shoes that are darker than the trousers. However, I'd like to echo the votes to pair them with light/mid grey trousers for year-round wear. I do that often. With traditional darker charcoal-colored trousers? Not so much. Spring and summertime is pretty much the only times I'll wear very light "stone" colored chinos, and walnut goes well with those. I would just stay away from tan or "british khaki" colored trousers/chinos, as there's just not enough contrast there.
