Native English speakers, could you please help me with these issues?

1. Can we use the verb 'to wear' when speaking of shoes?

For example, is it correct to say:

"Yoday, I'm going to wear these boots."

2. And when speaking of a dog's collar, would one use the verb 'to wear'?

    Yes. Words in English define in context and "to wear" is "to have on" as clothing or adornment or accessories. We also "humanize" our pets.

    Shoes, boots, clothing, jewelry and watches, belts, suspenders, ties, eyeglasses, etc

    Yes, also as a dog's collar.

    Wear does have other meanings.

    Wear size 9

    Wear the crown (a king, even without an actual crown)

    To wear a smile

    The letters wore off of the keyboard. (impair or diminish by use or attrition)

    The dog wore a hole in the rug. (to produce gradually by friction or attrition)

    I'm all worn out. (tired and fatigued)

    idiom-

    She wears the pants in the family. (She is in charge).

    Yes on both points. To wear is correct.
