A Muslim is Permitted to Pray Wearing Shoes

Answered according to Shafi'i Fiqh by Darul Iftaa Jordan
What is the ruling on praying while wearing shoes?

Answer:
All perfect praise be to Allah The Lord of The Worlds, and may His peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all of his family and companions.

There is no harm for a Muslim to pray wearing shoes or slippers so long as they are pure, since a man asked Anas Ibn Malik "Did the Prophet (PBUH) use to offer the prayers with his shoes on?" He said, "Yes."

Moreover, Ibn Rajab (May Allah have mercy on his soul) said(What means):" Performing prayer wearing slippers/shoes is permissible according the majority of the Muslim scholars." [Fatih Al-Bary,V.2/P.274]. And Allah knows best.
