Q: I am a woman and I bought black ankle socks in the men’s section (the women’s section in that shop did not have my size). Am I allowed to wear those socks? Or do I have to buy it from the women’s section.
A: If generally women wear these socks it is permissible to wear them.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
