Dye Accidentally Removed When Cleaning Leather Shoes

I just bought a pair of Alexander McQueen Puma shoes, made up of leather and fabric, and white in color. I paid 300 US dollars. A few days back, I went to a party and accidentally poured wine all over my shoes. I came back home and tried to remove the stain with soap, water, and detergent, but the stain didn't come off. Finally I tried nail polish remover. It did remove the stain, but unfortunately it also washed off the white leather paint, leaving behind an ugly brown patch. Now, my shoes look ugly. I'm totally upset now.

I tried to use white polish, but it didn't work well because my shoes are off white in color and the white polish looked like a white patch. I tried so many things to cover the brown patch, but failed.

So, can anyone help me? What should I use to hide the brown patch? These are my favourite shoes and were very expensive.

There used to be off white shoe polish out there, available in shoe repair stores or you could try using acrylic craft paint to match.

Many shoe repair shops carry leather spray paint.
