Praying without shoes in hot places

Question:

Shalom, Recently I was studying Mishneh Berurah 91:5 seif katan 13, that says we can pray with a sandal in hot places.
But there came me a doubt, if allowed in these places as does in the part of ‘SheAsa Li Kol Tzarki’?

The city in which i am living is very hot

 

Answer:

Hello,

The Mishna Berura that you quoted states explicitly that davening barefoot is only allowed in hot places if that is the way a person in that place would stand in front of a distinguished person. Since people where you live would not go to a meeting with a distinguished person barefoot, it is not allowed.

Have a great day
