Q: This might sound like an odd question but I was looking at some shoes and read that they were made off suede. I know that wearing pigskin is not permissible so I emailed the company that was making them (Louboutins) and they replied with saying that none of their shoes were made of pigskin but I am still wondering if I am able to wear them.


A: If it is not made of pig skin then you can wear them.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
