Answered by: Mufti Eunus Ali
Assalamu alaikum, Can I wear shoes that are popular like Adidas or vans. These are shoe brands but a lot of people wear them and I was saying would it be imitating kafir if I also bought and wore these shoes. Please tell me yes or no with evidence thank you. May Allah bless you.
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
The wearing of such footwear is not unique to the non-Muslims and neither are they considered to be a religious symbol, therefore making such footwear permissible.
Hence this would not be considered an imitation.
