So there's a quick look at the 6 menu styles available in version 3.2 of the Shoestrap theme. Remember, option settings for Brand Colors: Primary should be updated to integrate with the menu options settings you make until you get the look you're after. For example, red menu and red Brand Color settings will result in displaying top nav social icons that are red on red, rendering them invisible. Play around till you find the result you're after.
