The English here shouldn't be "brown", it should be "coffee coloured", which is one of many shades of brown. Aren't brown shoes 棕色鞋子?

Are you sure? I know that in Colombian Spanish, "café" is any kind of brown. I also know that coffee can be any color on the spectrum from nearly black to milky white, depending upon how you brew it and how much milk/cream you put it in.
