I think it kinda depends of the individual and what other clothes you're wearing.
It's hard to go wrong with classic Oxfords, especially black. Also, if you can pull it off, Beatle boots (or even winklepickers) as time-tested, but you need the right pants or you'll look... weird.
Also, some shoemakers, like Lacoste and Cohl Haan, make all-black sneakers that are kind of-dress shoe-inspired. They wont really work with a truly dressy outfit, but they come off significantly less "I'm wearing sneakers"-ey. I wear shoes like that most of the time lately.
