    that's just wrong. It's also uncomfortable - not sure why anyone would do such a thing, unless you live in a place with really gross floors (vicious cycle perhaps)

    This is part of why I don't like going barefoot... I hate the feeling of walking barefoot on a less-than-spotless floor. I clean the floors about once a week, and I can go barefoot for a day or so after a cleaning, but we have a dog, so dirt and fur accumulate pretty quickly.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    I'm somewhat of a neat-freak, so I think it's filthy to wear one's outside shoes inside the house. I mean FFS, you're stamping around in dog shit and other stuff you don't know about, so why contaminate the same carpet you lay on?

    No one I'm acquainted with thinks anything of wearing shoes in the house. I can recall the two or three times in my life I've been asked to remove my shoes simply because it's so unusual. I thought that's what doormats were for.

    I'm so glad @SmileyMan has entered this thread to enlighten everyone about only the most sophisticated and civilized ways of living. Though we can't all be blessed with his authentic European breeding and class, let us all copiously take notes.

    Wait...dood aren't you Polish?

    I generally try to avoid wearing shoes whenever possible, and it's not uncommon at all to find me doing most simple outdoor chores and activities barefooted. Wearing shoes inside is just uncomfortable and unnecessary.

    I never realized that it was usual in the States to wear your shoes inside. I think here you would expect to take your shoes off unless the house owner said it was fine to leave them on. I don't feel terribly strongly. I would probably wear my shoes in the kitchen or linoleum covered areas, but not on the carpet at home.

    No, I'm Danish. Besides, what do you have against Polaks? I can see Peguy in the corner with his crazy-face on.

    I really hate shoes and if it was up to me I'd NEVER wear shoes... I go barefoot as much as possible when free

    my SO finds the idea of going barefoot to be downright horrific... he even wears socks with sandals or to bed... he claims that he's naked if he's not wearing socks

    I do know a lot of people who wear shoes indoors though... I'm one of those disturbing people who takes their shoes off whenever entering someone's house, whether invited to do so or not

    Most people I've known wear shoes inside the house....its bothersome to take them on and off all the time. As far as I've noticed, its the norm throughout the United States.
