Fair enough guys! I just don't get on with grey shoes. I've never been able to reconcile them with trousers, despite the versatility of the colour. Darker grey does sound more sensible than my usual mid grey mental images.
I have a friend who wears pointed silver derbies with black patent detailing... fortunately he has tremendous personal style! And I will admit that if given the choice between silver Jeffery Wests or no Jeffery Wests I'd take the pointy silver Chelseas every time.
I went through a period of wanting silver shoes! I never did bring myself to buy them. I think I've now developed a classic style that means they wouldn't fit anything I now tend to wear, but I do have a secret little yearning to get a pair every now and then.
