If one leaves a rest room one must make netilat yadayim — ritual washing of the hands. This rule also applies to rest room facilities on airplanes and trains.
If one touched his or her shoes — one must wash hands. If one removed one’s shoes without touching them no washing is necessary. Should one try on a new pair of shoes for sizing — he or she need not make netillat yadayim so long as the old pair of shoes was not touched.
