Can I find shoes in a specific Pantone color (without waving around a swatch book in a department store)?

I would like to find a pair of nice heels in Pantone 186
, which is a bright red color, the color of flags and Target and sports teams, and my organization's new logo. Because I am a geek with a sense of humor, and a reputation for wearing red shoes, I would like to find a pair that matches it exactly.
I do not want dyeable shoes. I want shoes that are dressy and reasonably stylish. I don't want to walk through a shoe store with a color swatch if I can help it, but I will, especially if there's a particular shoe store in San Francisco or New York that might be willing to help. Most of all, I want them in Pantone 186.
Is there a way to harness the power of the internet to color-match shoes? A shopping service that uses Pantone? A shoe website with detailed color information?
