Oops sorry, I thought I was being observant. Seems I wasn't!
Funny thread! But to the OP if you can't get the two shoes matching again, you could do to the other shoe what you did to the first one. At least they'll match!
Then put tons of BROWN polish on them, and leave it on for ages.
I damaged some black shoes once, so I put a thick layer of polish on, and never brushed or wiped it off! Of course you can't wear light colored trousers with them when you do this.
It might just work with brown - you never know.
As a last resort, you can also get special shoe paint - just for leather shoes. If painting them brown doesn't work, you can paint them black, but by this time you will have to do the humble pie "please don't kill me" thing with your dad.
But at least the shoes won't have to be thrown out.
