Q: As if we wear leather socks so we do not need to wash our feets on every wadhu, masah is enough to complete the wadhu? So I want to know likely as if we wear cotton socks an on it we normally wear leather shoes so is it allowed that we do only masah like we do on leather socks, will the wadhu be valid?
A: Masah cannot be made on ordinary leather shoes.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
