Removing Wiped Over Footgear

Also, if one was wearing socks and had been wiping over them most of the day, then removed them, does he still have wudu if it had not been broken before removing the socks?

al-salamu `alaykum

Removing a barrier (whether it cover the feet or head) that has been wiped over for ritual purification necessitates making a complete wudu, even if the last wudu made has not been broken.

And Allah knows best.
