Do you wear shoes in the house?

Recommended Posts

We live in the tropics, so wearing sandals or slippers in the house is a necessity if you're going to wear anything at all. The streets are dirty and wearing shoes in the house would bring more dirt in.

As someone from the west with a dog, I almost always keep my shoes on. I hate stepping on stickers.

In the house? depends what house it is, really!

I prefer to keep them on myself when it comes to my own home. I do a lot of travelling to and from different places during the day, and my God is it time consuming and inconvenient to take them on and off every waking moment of the day. Don't even get me started with lace shoes, that's another whole story. And besides, I can vacuum my floor whenever I please, not that I'm pleased with people trekking dirt all over the house, but I won't really complain.

 

Regardless, I will take off my shoes when visiting somebody's home. I mean, it's just a general courtesy thing, unless you know the home policy for shoes. Generally when you see a whole heap of shoes at the door it's a good clue to take them off.

 

Well, I've got a doormat and yeah, generally that works wonders. I'm not about to kick up a fuss regarding dirt in the house. I think it's a lame excuse to get angry at someone personally, that's just my opinion though, and it seems kind of petty getting fired up about it. Still, I'll respect the rules of others regardless.

Didn't mean to rant so much about shoes, seems kinda silly but yeah, there's my view on it.

No... It's my own home, I don't need to be uncomfortable there! I'm typically bare-foot. Unless it's cold, then I'll wear slippers or socks... But that's a rare occasion.

I did, until I bought my own house and paid 4.2k to recarpet the whole thing. Now the shoes come off at the door. If my feet get cold, that's what slippers are for!

Nope.... My mom does enough complaining about how dirty the carpets are as it is already... I don't even want to know the kind of stuff she'd say if I wore shoes inside as well

My parents are rednecks, so I have to wear shoes indoors. I take them off at my bed, though.

I usually just roll barefoot in my house because it's comfortable. Sometimes I do like to keep my shoes on, though, because it always makes me feel more alert and awake because some part of my brain thinks I'm about to go somewhere.

You people just keep me impressed with your oddness...   I always thought that you must have separate shoes for the outside & separate shoes (slippers) for the inside.

I wear shoes when it's cold, but when it's warmer I like to take them off.

I wear sandals when I leave my room. In my room however, I am barefoot or sometimes, when I have cold feet, I also wear socks.

I used to have slippers, but I got tired of buying new ones every 6-8 months. Just socks now, the hard-wood floor is a little too chilly to walk on without some kind of layer between it and my foot.

Nononononono and no. I wear nothing (on my feet ;) ) inside. Shoes would be uncomfortable and dirty. I don't like wearing socs either.

When I get back home, I immediately take my shoes off and not care that I'm wearing socks until head to the shower.

If you wear shoes in my house, I will murder you with lots of ammonia and acetone.

 

I'm also Asian, so wearing anything but slippers is considered a crime. Leave your shoes at the door or you're vacuuming the house before you leave.

Has to be socks. No more or less unless the situation calls for it.

I mostly wear socks and slippers at home. My feet get ridiculously cold if I wear nothing at all >.>

Walk on my carpet with shoes on and it'll be the last time you wear those shoes.

 

Really though, vacuuming the rug is one of my chores and I always hate when people track dirt and mud onto the floor. The people I live with have grown aware of my hatred of shoes in the house and have stopped wearing their shoes anywhere past the door. (Most of the time -_- )

 

As for socks, I absolutely adore socks! I'll take all the unwanted socks from Christmas, because I just love them. I have all kinds of socks I wear at home. (and outside too) I have fuzzy ones with the rubber buttons on the bottom, and I have tall ones that cover my entire leg. Socks are like the best article of clothing, they're so soft!

 

My feet also tend to dry up easier without socks. I don't exactly know why, but it's just another excuse to wear more socks.

I never wear shoes when I'm home, I either wear socks or nothing, all depending on the temperature obviously.
