They are wearing the same school tie but a different pair of shoes.

I would say

a pair of white shoes (I understand it as white shoes, of which there is a pair.)
a new pair of glasses (I understand it as a pair of glasses, which is new.)

I have no coherent explanation why they seem better to me than the alternatives. Perhaps it's because a shoe is a separate object, but it makes no sense to think of "a glass" of a pair of glasses as a separate object of some kind. But more likely it's the adjective "new", because I would also say a new pair of shoes. Saying them the other way is also acceptable.

new white shoes, not *white new shoes
