    Footwear for prom

    I own a very dark navy suit (almost black), which I'm goint to wear, but I will have to invest in a new pair of shoes as my black derbies are pretty worn out (and frankly - they never looked good).
    Thing is - I don't want to spend money on a pair of shoes that only will be worn at formal occasions. Do you guys have any suggestions on footwear that is appropriate for a prom, but also can be easily incorporated in more casual outfits?
    Regards
    Johan

    You could possibly pick up some high street budget black suede brogues from the likes of Topman.com or asos.com

    Thanks for the suggestion. That's definitely a possiblity. I've also though about a nice pair of black chelsea boots as that's something I would get a lot of wear out of. I'm a bit unsure if it would be appropriate for a prom... What do you guys think?
    Regards

    I was going to suggest black chelsea boots, they work with suits, especially fairly slim-cut ones.

    Sorry to hi-jack the thread a bit, but I was thinking about some brogues for my prom too. I love the Chester Loake Brogues but then again they're really expensive for a student. Is it worth settling on a 40 pair from Burton or ASOS? although I do love the look of brogues in general, just finding the opportunity to wear them may be a pain so it may not be worth investing so much money into it.
