well, in my opinion, I like a nice casual short ankle length boot usually in dark brown or black on a guy because it looks cool, but still casual. I really love the monochromatic sneakers opposed to the colorful 80s versions that are popular now, but that's simply my taste. also, light colored shoes are a bit harder to keep clean, although some people like their shoes to have that dirty look, not too clean, you know? here are some examples:
i don't really care. as long as their not solid black or solid white (waiter/waitress shoes). I also really hate the obnoxiously colorful ones that are like neon green and pink, and orange. you could stand on a runway and signal airplanes with those things.
