The speaker mentions that light brown or tan shoes are considered overrated and advises against pairing them with dark suits. Light brown shoes are described as “tan,” “Walnut,” or “Cognac.”
The recommended dress shoe colors for suits are black, dark brown, and burgundy. These colors are said to be versatile and appropriate for more formal occasions.
For black suits, the speaker emphasizes that black shoes are the best choice. However, dark burgundy or oxblood shoes can also be paired with black suits or black dress pants.
Charcoal suits, described as very dark gray, are mentioned to look sharp with black dress shoes. While black remains the safest option, pairing charcoal suits with dark brown or burgundy shoes is considered acceptable.
Navy suits are highlighted as the most common suit color. Black shoes are recommended for a sharp look, but navy suits can also be paired with dark brown, medium brown, burgundy, or oxblood shoes. Light brown or tan shoes are not suitable for navy suits due to their dark nature.
Medium blue suits, which are lighter than navy, offer more flexibility. They can be worn with lighter brown shoes, as well as dark brown and burgundy.
