The sunnah of putting on shoes is put on the right first than the left, and when taking off take out the left foot first than the right, Source. One should also not wear one shoes on a foot, either put on both shoes or don't put on anything at all.

لاَ يَمْشِي أَحَدُكُمْ فِي نَعْلٍ وَاحِدَةٍ لِيُحْفِهِمَا جَمِيعًا، أَوْ لِيَنْعَلْهُمَا جَمِيعًا

None of you should walk, wearing one shoe only; he should either put on both shoes or put on no shoes whatsoever

Saheeh Bukari Book 77, Hadith 73

As for a dua when putting them on, I do not know.

  • @Muslim I do not know, I am not familiar with such a thing. There is a hadith in Tirmidhi (if I am not mistaken) giving a dua for putting on cloths but I currently can't find it and I am unsure of it's authenticity.
