Almost every society has these 11 color names: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, black, white, gray, brown, and pink.

Of those 11, I would say the shoe is orange.
You're wrong.

The only way to know is to get the Pantone color number (maybe on manufacturer’s website?)

This is a common issue in the printing industry.
That was my first thought, that pictures often display colors oddly.

But based on what I see, I would have described it as salmon or peach (or pink if I was being more generic), and definitely not orange. And if it truly was orange, and my picture looked liked that, I would say "picture makes it look pink/salmon/peach, but it really is orange.

Also, the orange (fruit) is not natural. It was created by humans as a hybrid of two other fruits:

From the article: "Today every natural language that has words for colors is considered to have from two to twelve basic color terms." Two is a long way from saying all languages have 11 color names.

Also, the orange (fruit) is not natural. It was created by humans as a hybrid of two other fruits:

That's pretty neat. Even if one of the fruits was a mandarin orange.
