& the perils of wearing new shoes, broken shoes or ill-fitting shoes on shabbat

(this page discusses various aspects connected with shoes. how to clean shoes on shabbat, and not wearing inappropriate shoes that may break, fall off or just be uncomfortable, and would cause the wearer to take them off and carry them. women's shoes are identified as women are particular in wear correctly fitting shoes. Included on this page is advice about applying oil to new shoes to soften the leather. Having recently purchased a pair of doc martens, I appreciated the advice on websites dedicated to how to break in DM's, apply baby-oil. for english translation of this talmud page, see here)
