Hey Chris, that Black Patent and Silver base pair that Devin posted a picture of looked very nice. I really like my Pearl Lizard and Silver base Shield Tips.
There are gray accents in the Lizard print that are picked up with the Silver. They look good with gray, granite, stone, winter white, black, and even navy pants.
I also have charcoal lizard with black, lilac lizard with purple, and white croc with white. Love them all! Good luck deciding.
