Assalamualaikum Muffi Saab, my question is...

Is it a sin to leave shoes upside down - so the part which usually touches the ground is facing upwards?
Is this simply culture or does this hold in Islam? I took my shoes off quickly without looking and one landed upside down ( then someone told me to put it right way up) and the persons response made me confused.

Jazakallah Khair

It is not a sin to leave shows upside down. Some may consider this
inappropriate in their house, but that is just personal opinion, not any
sharee' ruling.
