Default Re: Oil on my right shoe?

This might sound silly but do you use a lot of chain lubrication and do you pedal a lot? It could be from your pedal chain or as Venice suggested, if your right foot is toward the rear it could be getting exhaust that flows under and to the right. On my first bike it was always my left shoe that caught the exhaust until I made a 45 degree extension for the muffler that aimed the exhaust out and away from my foot.
Here's another suggestion: Wear your shoes on the wrong feet occasionally and then they'll be the same color
