No, you don't wear shoes in Vietnamese. You carry/bring them.

Here's the reason: Vietnamese is a tropical country where it's hot with rain and mud all year round. So they didn't wear shoes like Europeans did. That's impractical. They wore slippers, and with slippers, they literally carried them with their feet.
