There's next to no chance your interviewers will care or even notice that you have on black shoes, regardless of the color of your suit. If we're taking risk, nude patent shoes are objectively riskier than black shoes, even with a navy suit.
Feel confident in what you are wearing and look put together. The end. It doesn't matter one or two buttons, one undone, side vents or center vent. Every person I know who does banking or firm interviews could care less what you wear as long as you meet a basic threshold of professionalism.
Yes, this. We debate in the fashion thread all the time about the appropriate shoe color to wear with a navy suit, but truly, any neutral is going to be fine. I always opt for black, but nude looks sharp as well.
Though for men, black shoes with navy suit is more than fine; it's the standard to dress it up. Brown dresses down. They have more clear-cut rules than we do.
+1 to all of this. Patent seems to be the only risk involved here. I love patent shoes, but they feel a little too flashy for an interview. But nude or black doesn't matter.
