I’m not a fan of traditional match-making. Isn’t it better when unions occur more organically? I would introduce a belt and shoes from similar colour families and see if they hit it off. The aim is for them to complement each other, rather than be an exact match. For instance, one of my personal favourite couplings has been a dark brown watch strap with black footwear. While that may distress some conservative dressers, I take it as validation that I was still asked to write a style column!
