Question: Can someone explain the difference between:
 
Nagsusuot = Tom aye nagsusuot ng sapatos (Tom is wearing shoes)
Nakasuot = Sino ang nakasuot ng sapatos? (Who is wearing shoes)
Suot = Ano ang suot ni Tom? (What is Tom wearing?)
 
Don't they all translate to "wearing"
Unless my translation above is wrong or it has something to do with the sentence focus?

In order to really know the difference, you should study Tagalog verb conjugations and focus. Don't rely on word for word translations because this approach don't capture all the nuances of Tagalog

nakasuot puts more emphasis that he has on a pair of shoes, like you're describing what he's wearing. This is more common I don't see as many people use nagsusuot when they're talking about what someone is wearing. It's hard to explain to someone who's not fluent

@higherlimit Nagsusuot is a verb like He is putting on his shirt; Nakasuot is an adj like He is in a shirt; Suot is a noun like What (clothing) are you wearing? ...
