What to recite when wearing shoes?

Question

I would like to know if there is any authentic du’a mentioned in Hadith to be recite when wearing shoes?

 

Answer

I have not come across a specific du’a to recite when wearing shoes. You may recite Bismillah.

 

You may recite the following du’a when wearing new shoes:

اللهم لك الحمد أنت كسوتنيه، أسألك خيره وخير ما صنع له، وأعوذ بك من شره وشر ما صنع له

Allahumma lakal hamdu Anta kasawtanihi as-aluka khayrahu wa khayra ma suni’a lah wa a’udhu bika min sharrihi wa sharri ma suni’a lah

 

Translation

O Allah! All praise belongs to you. You have clothed me. I ask You for the good of this and the good for which it was made, and I seek refuge in You from its evil and the evil for which it was made

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 1767, Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 4016. Refer: Tuhfatul Ahwadhi)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
