    No I don’t although I secretly prefer to walk around barefeet but Darling Husband doesn’t like it for some reason.

    Yes – I’m much more comfortable without shoes on.

    The first thing I do when I walk in the door at home is take off my shoes.  Bra is next, lol.

    Nope. I’ve only known one family who does this. I walk to the bedroom and take my shoes off and put them away in the shoe rack. I can’t stand walking around barefoot, so I slip on my indoor flip-flops. Fiance does the same, but stays barefoot/in socks.

    I always take my shoes off in my house. I take my shoes off in other people’s homes if there’s carpet or if I’m wearing socks. If it’s hardwood and I have on sandals I usually leave them on unless I see them not wearing shoes. Lol, I kind of have a flow chart.

    No way.  I have really sensitive feet and pretty much alwasy have these on for support.

    They are like my “slippers” and Darling Husband has actualy slippers, so- yes and no I guess.


    Sometimes I wear them outside, but in general I hate the thought of oil and grime from shoes in my home- in the winter I always take my boots off and put these on.  Pretty much have to because you will be covered in grey mush (on your boots).

    In my house I kick them off almost immediately.  I don’t take my shoes off in other peoples homes unless they do or ask me to.  Fiance wears boots for work so he keeps his shoes on until he wants to lay down usually.  I guess it’s more of a hassle to take his shoes off since he has to unlace them and whatnot.

    YES!!! Unless, I have to run back in for soething really quick and its only on the laminate or tile. But honestly, shoes are so YUCKY I coudn’t imagine wearing thhem indoors all the time. Plus I prefer the feeling of no shoes!

    Growing up, we never had a no shoes thing. There was never any problem if anyone wanted to keep their shoes on. But once I moved out I made it a no shoes house. If a guest wants to take leave their shoes on there is zero problem, but I prefer no shoes just because it keeps the carpets cleaner.

    I also just hate shoes. BARE FEET ALL THE WAY! Sealed

    Take them off every time!  Can’t imagine all the stuff that could be on the bottom of my shoes—wouldn’t want that on the floors/rugs/carpets.  Grew up taking off my shoes, and will always do it.  I love walking around barefoot, and cringe if guests come over and don’t take them off—I just imagine what my bare feet are exposed to.
