    Does anyone actually do this? I always assumed that this was something they did on TV. As in, they leave out the characters' taking their shoes off, like they leave out their characters brushing their teeth every morning.
    The idea of shoes inside the house seems bizarre, not to mention unhygienic.
    (For the record, I wear slippers in the house. Cold hardwood.)

    I personally walk around barefoot inside. During the winter I might wear socks. What gets me is people who still believe you can get sick from walking around barefoot. Silly superstition icon_rolleyes.gif

    Growing up my mom wore shoes in the house. Even though she had slippers, she always preferred her shoes in case she had to kill a bug on the spot, lol.

    I think most people in Europe, Latin America, and Asia wear slippers or flip flops/sandals at home.

    I wear shoes indoors, it's kind of inevitable since the shoes are racked inside my closet so I naturally have to cross the premises in them after putting them on and when returning. When I visit other people in their homes I keep my shoes on and so they they. It'd be bizarre for people at a social gathering to have their shoes off, at least here in Mexico.

    Nope. Leave ALL of your shoes outside by the door. You don't bring that filth inside here.

    It's a cultural thing. icon_biggrin.gif

    I know an orthopedic surgeon that specializes in feet who would never let anyone in his home go barefoot. It's about the safety of their feet as he understand well professionally.

    Personally I prefer shoes removed at the front door (and putting on slippers) so as to keep the house cleaner. It makes a huge difference.

    I prefer to wear socks around the house... but got used to taking my shoes off years ago.

    I don't wear shoes indoors, and it's just a comfort thing. I HATE going into someone's home and seeing pairs of shoes thrown either inside the door or worse, outside.

    Fine if people enjoy no shoes indoors, but please don't make ME indulge in that habit at your place, as I'm a guest and should be made to be comfortable.

    Every time I step in the house from the neighborhood, I take off my jacket and hang it in the closet by the front door and put on a cardigan. I then sit down, take off my shoes, and put on a different pair.

    When I lived in North Dakota, on the Minnesota border, the custom was to always remove your shoes or winter boots at the door. Guests walked in their socks. An exception was made for more formal dinner parties, when you could keep your dress shoes on.

    in the Philippines, if you are a visitor, the owner of the house will make you believe that wearing a shoe inside their house is ok, expect to not get invited ever if you fall for that trap. lol

    It seems to be largely a cultural thing. By myself, I wear socks or slippers. My feet get cold easily. At other people's homes, I do whatever they do. I always make sure I have on a clear pair of socks without holes. icon_biggrin.gif
