How many of you wear brown shoes to work - very curious about this. I have always been a fan of them

Sometimes, but I normally wear a pair of grey new balances to the office.

In my office maybe a third regularly wear brown shoes. I personally prefer black and if I do wear brown, they're usually dark brown or burgundy loafers. Don't think brown oxfords or monk straps will ever look good with a high end suit. They just look tacky and childish to me (reminds me of college formals and invites lol). Maybe Berlutis with a patina can work.

Generally speaking your belt/watch/shoe leather color should match. Dark brown, black, and oxblood are the most common colors. Black kind of sucks imo because it's far less flexible than a dark brown shoe.

brown shoes are for peasants and fridays

If you can even remotely justify calling them "Light Brown" or "Tan" don't even fucking think of wearing them. Only deep / dark browns and burgundy.

Big fan of light brown shoes and typically get compliments

Not a big fan of black but understand this is more conservative

Never wear brown shoes with a suit when dealing with companies with over 1m EBITDA/10m sales - end of discussion.
