These should be translated as "这些" right? Wouldn't "这双“ be translated as this pair?

For the first question, yes.

For the second question, also yes. However, you can neglect the word "pair" if the context is clear to the listener/reader. For instance,

  • 这双: This pair (no item specified)
  • 这双鞋子: This pair of shoes/shoes (Commonly thought as shoes relatively)

“这些鞋子” indicates 'these (pairs) of shoes', for example, pointing to a group of shoes on a shelf

Is it possible to say “這雙鞋子打折不打折?” I was marked wrong for it.
