Synonyms of "Different" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between different from and other than ?
A: Different from - emphasizes the different qualities between two or more objects. You want something not similar when you ask for something different.

Example:
"I don't like these shoes. Do you have any different models?" - do you have pairs that are not the same as these?

Other than - you are asking for another object. It can be different to the first object, or it can be similar, but it excludes the first object.

Example:
"I don't want to buy the pair of shoes on display because every customer has tried them on. Do you have any other pair or is this the last one?" - the other pair would be identical to the first pair, but would not be the actual pair in question

"I don't like these shoes. Do you have any other models?" - this highlights the differences. It is the same as "I don't like these shoes. Do you have any different models?"
