When a mourner may wear leather shoes


We have said that a mourner is not allowed to wear leather shoes during shivah. However, he may wear any other type of shoe.

Further: If a mourner is in a position in which a strong leather shoe is needed to protect him from harm, he may wear such a shoe.

(Code of Jewish Law Yoreh Deah 382:1, 3)

Have a good day,
