A Rabbi said that his following should put the name of a wicked person in their shoe. Is this something with significance? What’s the purpose? What is the effect? Does it have a source? Is this allowed?

    If you're doing it specifically so the name gets erased as you walk, would that be an issue on Shabbos (not a דבר שאינו מתכון anymore if you want it to happen)? – Heshy Mar 6 '18 at 13:03

    Do you mean beyond Purim? – rosends Mar 6 '18 at 13:23
  • Per @rosends comment ^^, I think O.C. mentions a minhag to write Haman's name on the bottom of the shoe, so that, literally, when hearing Haman's name on Purim one stamps out the name. – DanF Mar 6 '18 at 14:37

    "A Rabbi said" Do you know which one? – ezra Mar 6 '18 at 15:48
  • It was in passing in an article so I forgot the name but I will try to find the name of the Rabbi. – Oded Mar 6 '18 at 20:04
