Here's a copy of the color chart, not sure if the plum color on there is similar to the shoe color. HTH.

My husband just showed me a website that they showed him in web design class. He saved the picture of the show, went in and was able to get the RGB breakdown of the color. It also gives colors that compliment, etc. Really, really cool!
So according to the rgb, its 115 drops of red, 90 drops of blue and 22 of green. He suggested to try the red and blue first and if its not quite right, then to add the green. Ofcourse you will probably have to cut the amounts down unless you plan on making a ton of the color!
If you want to check out the website, its kuler.adobe.com and you have to register but its free!
