Shoes in the house.
Was watching a video on FB about shoes in the house. How, here in America, people do not change their shoes to sleepers/home shoes when coming home. This is not necessary a pole, but maybe you people can chime in, especially those that do not live in US on the custom of your country. What is prevalent custom?
Thank you.

I go barefoot, or stocking foot, 95% of the time in the house. When I have shoes on coming in from outside, I don't change to something else. I either keep wearing them, or just take them off and go "au natural." I generally have a pair of flip-flops in the laundry room by the back door to put on if I have to go out to the yard or garage briefly for something.

We take off our shoes when we come into the house and wear slippers/sandals/etc. indoors. In the summer, we're usually all barefoot. We don't ask our guests to take shoes off but our Indian neighbors do as a matter of course.

I take my shoes off when I come in the door and paddle around in my socks or bare feet.

My PCP says I need to get serious about wearing shoes or slippers with some structure in them to protect my feet due to the fact that I have diabetes. I really need to work on that.

Just because...we change our shoes before we come into the house.

We have "inside" shoes and "outside" shoes. All of this is because we want to keep our carpet clean. Not that we have a white carpet. We just want to keep things nice

In the end, we change our shoes before we enter our home.

I don't ever wear shoes in the house. Barefoot 3/4 of the year. In the colder months I wear little anklet socks or slippers. I keep flip flops on the outside of the 3 doors that lead outdoors. Going shoeless in the house is just a matter of personal preference and comfort, so I wouldn't ask a guest in my home to remove their shoes before coming in.

In Hawaii, you ALWAYS take your shoes, slippers, whatever was on your feet outside, OFF!! It's rude to leave shoes on in doors.

The first time DH took me "back East" to meet his family, we're on the airplane and he turns to me and gasps:
Do not take your shoes off when you go into my Brother's house!!! They'll think you're CRAZY!! :lol:
I knew that! :stuart:

This popped up on my FB page tonight.

I'm with RPC and CJ. I pretty much never wear shoes in my house. I keep my Birkies and a pair of Nike walkers handy to go out, and take them off when I get done. I'm either barefoot or in socks in my house.

I wear shoes inside. I would like to go barefoot but a problem with my feet requires a structured shoe. I will however change my shoes. I have some sandals that my doctor approved that I wear in the house. I need a pretty heavy arch support.
