RUSSIAN: Ostap Bender's shoes

I've seen a few film adaptations of Ilf and Petrov's works and from what I've gathered Ostap Bender's shoes were described as "апельсиновые". Now, in English translation I found that they were raspberry-red. O.o What's more, my Russian teacher told me that you cannot describe the colour with the adjective апельсиновый, only food.

So, my question is, in the books, what word is used to describe the colour of his shoes?
