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?

Answer:

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.
