Wingtips are a must own shoe in a man's classic wardrobe. Burgundy wingtips are the color you want. They are infinitly more versitile than brown or black. A common misconception is to call them cordovan. Cordovan is a type of leather and not a color (as you will learn soon enough, grasshopper).

Personally, I own a pair of Bostonian Maldens. I bought them for less than $100 and I feel that they are a great low end wingtip. From there you can go right up the scale; Florsheim, Allen Edmonds, Alden.
