Check here, here and here for more info.

신발 is more general.

구두 is for dress shoes (the ones you wear in a more formal setting).

I typed in "Dress Shoe" and it was not accepted. Not complaining if this is an oversight as this may mean "a pair of dress shoes," but I am interested in knowing what a single dress shoe would be called.

It doesn't take 'shoe'. So there is a separate word for only shoe?

Yes, 신발 is regular shoes, 구두 is fancier/dress shoes :)
