These shoes (in Taupe) look fantastic with medium to dark jeans. They're nicer than sneakers, but not formal, so they're exactly what I wanted as everyday shoes. They take a bit of breaking in, but after that are *extremely* comfortable.
I highly recommend purchasing them with a suede brush, if you don't already have one. Any amount of fluid will appear as a distinct stain on them. Even if a single drop of water falls on them, you'll get a noticeable dark circle. However, with a suede brush, you can brush it out in 5 seconds.
