Based on other sentences using colors, it seems like 绿鞋子 should be accepted.

I thought about putting that way but I saw through Duo! Hehe

Come on Duo, please try to improve these tests to make the translations more flexible. As a Chinese, it becomes really exhausting for me to figure out the ONLY correct way to translate.

Maybe Duolingo is showing flexibility here. Either we choose to adapt 绿鞋子 or 绿色的鞋子.
