I've seen some shoes I'd like to try that come in black or brown. I prefer the brown in honesty because I am a brown leather girl that heart. However ... I'll be wearing them for work and while it's a casual office I do tend to often wear an a line black skirt and tights or a shift type dress over a long sleeve tee. Nothing formal, just smart ish tops.
Could I get away with the brown or should I stick with the safer black?
It's these by the way so very much a mid brown.

I personally would stick with the black. You could buy both and wear one casually?

The black is much nicer, I think.

I think black tights with black shoes can easily look "school attire" or funereal. I think black tights, or grey, can go nicely with brown shoes. And I prefer your shoe in the brown! But admittedly I'm not q fan of black shoes!

Hmm decisions! Still not sure. Black can be very school shoe like but they will definitely go with everything.
The brown are just a bit different. But not guaranteed to go well with all I wear. I tend to wear a lot of black based outfits for work I think.

That shade of brown won't work with black tights I don't think. It's the heel being lighter or something. I also prefer brown or tan for leather but in this case the black is the better choice.

What about your usual outfit, the brown shoes and a pair of deep blue tights? Or plum-coloured? Could be lovely and autumnal ...

I have those!
Lovely amd comfy. I bought them in brown but wear with navy and grey. I have black shoes for black tights.
