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 masnun du’a to recite when wearing shoes.

You may recite Bismillah. You could also recite Nuh’s (‘alayhis salam) du’a. See here.

 

You may also 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.
