Do you mean patent-leather glossy? If so, they would be fine to wear them with a tuxedo.
The chukka boots may be utilized around the house (i.e., grass cutting, outside painting, changing oil, etc.) but I'd say the corfams would be better suited as a donation to Goodwill or something like that.
These are the corframs, I'm probably going to throw them away next time I come across them. They've got enough wear and storage dings that I couldn't wear them in uniform, let alone anywhere else:Spoiler:
The chukka boots I bought specifically for my wedding and never wore them again. I wear a 14 dress shoe, so in the box they take up some prime real estate in the closet, but I don't want to part with them. Wish I could find a use for them in civilian attire.Spoiler:
They would be horrifically bad for grass cutting, etc. I still have my combat boots that I wear riding the motorcycle or when knocking down brush or something, I assume that's what you were picturing.
I have a pair of Bostonions I wear with suits and more formal stuff, and some other brown oxfords I wear around the office.

Edit: I almost always wear brown with navy. You can go black if the shirt/tie combo is just right.
