"I am just starting a collection of quality shoes, and recently purchased a pair of brown cap-toes that I really like. Should I buy the same shoe in black as well? Or should my first black pair be a different style altogether?"
Cap-toe'd oxfords are worn with city suits and, if you wear a suit most days, you should have at least two pair. Personally, the cap toe is my favorite style. I have two pair in black as well as dark brown, chestnut and tan versions and they get as much wear as anything in my wardrobe. G. J. Cleverley made the very conservative pair in the photo.
