Shoes for cigarette trousers?

I have a lovely pair of cigarette trousers but what shoes should I wear with them?
Pumps in summer maybe but too cold for that now.
I have 2 pairs of brogues- would they work and if so, should I wear socks as the trousers finish ankle level.
Or ankle boots?

I wear brogues with those funny footlet socks (the ones that just cover your toes and so don't show)

I wear heels with (gasp!) popsocks, or ankle boots with socks.

Ooh I would love some suggestions (sorry to hijack thread!)

I've got a friend who wears brogues and proper cotton socks ie not pop socks with cigarette trousers.

Colour either matches the shoes or the trousers, and it looks smart and warm.

I <3 pop socks.

Having said that, if the trousers are wooly then sometimes the friction causes your trews to bunch after sitting down. Particularly if you are large of girth calf-wise like moi. Wish I could carry off jazzy socks and trousers but my boss would probably tell me to go home and change and stop dressing like an Oxford don sad

Ah pop socks are a consensus. Are they meant to be seen or hidden? Is any pop sock on show a faux pas?
