Akkusative adjective

Dort habe ich viele neue Freunde kennen gelernt .

Gefallen Ihnen meine neuen Roten Schuhe ?

In sentence 1 why there is neue Freunde and why not neuen Freunde ?

Also in sentence 2 there is neuen Roten Schuhe ...

Why there is a difference even if both sentences are Akkusative or direct object ?

neuen Roten Schuhe is Nominative.

Es gefällt mir.

Die roten Schuhe gefallen dir.

Gefallen dir die roten Schuhe?

Yes , thats correct.

Because the first sentence is strong inflection while the second one is mixed inflection. I'd suggest you take a look at the tips section.
