While most people know that there is a supplication for wearing new clothing, they may not know that this supplication extends to new shoes.

عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ الْخُدْرِيِّ، قَالَ كَانَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم إِذَا اسْتَجَدَّ ثَوْبًا سَمَّاهُ بِاسْمِهِ إِمَّا قَمِيصًا أَوْ عِمَامَةً ثُمَّ يَقُولُ ‏ “‏ اللَّهُمَّ لَكَ الْحَمْدُ أَنْتَ كَسَوْتَنِيهِ أَسْأَلُكَ مِنْ خَيْرِهِ وَخَيْرِ مَا صُنِعَ لَهُ وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّهِ وَشَرِّ مَا صُنِعَ لَهُ

Narrated Abu Sa’id al-Khudri:

When the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) put on a new garment he mentioned it by name, turban or shirt, and would then say: O Allah, praise be to Thee! as Thou hast clothed me with it, I ask Thee for its good and the good of that for which it was made, and I seek refuge in Thee from its evil and the evil of that for which it was made.

[Reported by Abu Dawood, Tirmidhi and others. Graded Saheeh by Al-Albani in Saheeh Sunan Abi Dawood no. 4020]

Imam Nawawi rahimahullah wrote: “Chapter: what to say when wearing a new garment, shoe, or what resembles it” [Al-Adhkaar pg. 29]
