New Shoes in the Three Weeks

Can one buy new shoes during the 3 weeks?A sheyanu is never made on leather goods. Is this correct?


This is correct, and therefore it is fine to buy new shoes in the three weeks.

Although some write that nowadays, shoes have become “fashion items,” and therefore a berachah should be made, the general practice remains not to make a berachah for shoes.
