    Are Shabbos shoes a chiyuv al pi halacha like clothes? If so why do many people not bother with them?

    Are they a nice minhag?

    Or are they simply an extra than many people buy??

    they told me that no one answered since i opened too many threads at the same time, so i decided to try and do them one by one

    this way we can ignore you one by one.

    If you have sufficient funds to own a “dress” wardrobe as well as a “regular” wardrobe, then the “dress” wardrobe will include shoes. If you had a meeting with President Obama or Queen Elizabeth (depending on your country), etc., if you would have a “dress” wardrobe for the occasion, and that includes shoes, you have your answer.

    If you would wear your regular clothes for such occasions as Shabbos or meeting your Head of State, you wouldn’t have special shoes for the occasion.

    I think it’s unbecoming to wear shoes that aren’t nice on shabbat. I do wear dress shoes on shabbat that I wouldn’t wear during the week. During the week, I wear Rockport shoes, and on shabbat, I wear more dressy shoes.

    akuperma, if your reasoning was correct; then we would wear Shabbos shoes [and clothes] every time we daven. We don’t.

    Shabbos is obviously different, because of the halocho of ?????? ????? ????? ??? ??? ????? ?? ??? ??????? ?? ?? (??? ???)

    Are shoes included in this halocho?

    In the winter, I wear Shabbat shoes the entire time.

    In the spring/summer, I wear Shabbat shoes Friday night, and during the day until I come home from shule. I switch to sandalim before kiddish, and wear them the rest of the day.

    I was also wonderimg about glasses. I’ve seen people who wear different glasses on sabbos and during the week. Will it eventually become standard like shoes did?

    I go to a different shul for shabbos than during the week, likavod shabbos. The shul that i dont go to uses a different room as the sanctuary for shabbos than during the week, but im holding on a higher level.

    Thought it was to revive this thread, being that there are now so many veki’im in halocho on the eiruvin thread.
