Since the woman must remove the special shoe from the deceased husband’s brother’s foot, in this case it’s questionable if it can be considered his leg/foot.

not a issue just a rare

It Is not a issue just a rare occurrence, and the shoe cant be put on a prosthesis so they need to make a specialty shoe and use a step or stool for the person to step on, and in this case they did it with the left foot as well.
