    Black or Brown?

    Shoes to go with the activity trousers on Sunday?

    I don't have a pair of the posh ones...

    What do you think?

    Does it matter? Whichever is clean and shiny.

    Agree, if your giving up your time on a Sunday, and you look smart, it shouldn't matter what colour your shoes are.

    ummm... black... surely the only option?

    i am never too fussed but i would always go for black over brown. There's something rather caddish about shiny brown shoes at the best of times... Jeeves would not suffer them on a formal occasion, I'm quite sure.

    Absolutely - I mean, brown and blue clash so badly with nothing in between; just too, too depressing, darling!

    It doesn't matter - just being there is more important - but if pushed for an answer - black

    Yes it does, I have a very clean and shiny new pair of running shoes, but I'll be wearing my black shoes on Sunday!

    Throwing something else into the mix, surely it should be walking shoes or boots with activity trousers?

    Seriously though, black here too.

    I wouldn't bet on it! If our village school is anything to go by, 'School Shoes' seems to mean the latest Nike Trainers!
