    ^^LOL, that's an easy one!
    The shoe for the left foot is "deep, deep espresso," while the shoe for the right foot is clearly basic black! A new trend setter, perhaps? :icon_scratch: ;)

    I think they are a dark roast.

    One thing for sure, don't buy one pair in expresso and the other in black and then throw them in the closet together! I once had a professor who dressed in the classic trad fashion and wore a dark brown beef roll penny loafer on one foot and a black on the other to work one day. In his defense I am sure the closet was dark and until you have cataract surgery you have no idea how you slowly lose your ability to detect color differences in dim lighting.

    I once tossed sevaral pair of brown dress socks because I had the darnedest time telling them from the blacks, at O’dark-thirty in the morning. IIRC, I might have worn them mismatched on an occasion or two.

    When I got my current ones, they have color stripes on the toes to make it plain which is which, so others have clearly experienced this.

    That was my exact thought. I wondered if I was seeing things. Apparently not.

    Many years back I had a very similar experience to that of your professor..two similarly, but differently hued shoes of the same design and I went to work with one of each on my feet! I confirmed a fair number of doubts held by others about my intellect that day(LOL). It was not long after that that I designed and completed a custom build out of my closet, organizing my shoe collection on nicely roomy shoe shelves that took up almost half of my closet space! I haven't yet repeated the humiliation of wearing two colors of the same shoe...knock on wood.:fool:
