    I have a really dark gray suit and I always wear black shoes with it.  Good luck with your big meeting!

    I’d got with black – it’ll be a conservative color, and people will listen to your ideas and not be distracted by your shoes 🙂

    OR, wear shoes that match your blouse or other accessoriy if you’re feeling snazzy.  Black is the safe bet, but a pair of shoes that coordinate with your blouse, belt, purse shouldn’t be bad, either.

    I voted other, but that’s just because I’ve worn black shoes, gray shoes, and many other color shoes (blue, purple, red…probably others too) with my grey suits.  I love grey suits (I have at least 3, haha).

    Do you work for a conservative company?  Or more importantly, is the the VP a conservative guy?  I work at a super conservative company, but there are still some director and higher level people who appreciate a personal sense of style and I’ve actually been complimented on my flshier shoes by them.  There are others who do not, lol, and I would either wear black or gray shoes with them.

    So, yeah, you could really wear any color shoes, but if he’s super conservative I would go with either black or gray, either would look fine.

    I voted black, anything else may look flashy and you want to stay neutral for the interview..

    You need a classic, closed-toe black pump. In my opinion, it should be at least two inches and pointed.  I am not a fan of chunky heels with suits!
