And here's Pixel Mode:
Keep in mind that not all stores keep their entire inventory on the marketplace; some have only SOME of their items on the marketplace, and all of them in their inworld store, so visiting inworld is the best way to view everything.

I have 'socks' textured with a pale skin texture that when worn come up to just below the swell of your calf.. The texture is a gradient though so it becomes more transparent as it rises and is completely transparent at the top. You put the sock on and using the color picker in appearance, tint them to a color that closely matches your skin. You know you have a good match when you can no longer see the where the sock starts on your leg. Then you use the same tint on the prim feet. You can get a perfect match every time. If sized correctly, you there will be no noticeable color line between the prim feet and your leg even when you cam very close up.
They came with some shoe I bought, and since they are copy, I also wear them with other shoes that are difficult to match with my skin. They can make even the cheaper shoes without good skin textures on the prim feet look good.

I cannot find a satisfactory solution, so I do not buy shoes with prim feet.
for me they do work, but only because I only wear them with full length trousers so the seam with the legs falls at the cuffs of those trousers, the closest skin being a long way away.
A small difference in colour/tint doesn't matter so much that way.

G-field has LOVELY shoes with an Alpha layer, and most of their shoes are only 200 L or less. If you don't mind spending between 500-700 linden for a pair of shoes, give N-Core a try. They have have styling cards that give you the RGB numbers to match your skin tone if you have a skin tone by LAQ, Belleza, Curio, Redgrave, etc. If your skin is a smaller brand, they will help you match.
If you get tired of shoes, there's always BOOTS! BAX boots are pricey (900 L a pair) but they custom fit them for you right in the store, or even remotely. Pretty awesome, and well worth the price. If you want more casual boots, I like Mon Tissu riding boots. They look great with jeans, or a short summery dress.

Oh yes, also I have a few pairs of pumps by Juicy that are great too (no prim feet). I concur with Ariel Pixel Mode and Maitreya are fantastic.
I'll post some landmarks later, or feel free to IM me in-world and I'll send you a notecard with links
