Do you wear shoes in the house or take them off at the door?

I wear them in the house.  

 

The only carpeted area is the stairs, and I have a tendency to stub my toes so I tend to keep them on for protection.

At the door. Started when I was young due to my mom always saying "Take your shoes off!" Later it was my stepfather saying "I don't want goat heads in the carpet!" So yah, one of those things that has stuck with me through my years.

It all depends on what I'm doing, where I'm going, and all that.  If at home, they're taken off after getting in the door, because they're stored in the front entrance...  Although if I'm in and out of the house they stay on for obvious reasons.

 

Visiting friends?  Are we going out right after?  They stay on.  Are we going to the backyard?  Probably staying on.  Staying in the house?  Yeah, they come off after coming in the door.

 

Visiting somewhere like a store?  Yeah no, they stay on ::P:

Used to take them off all the time with only thick slippers to replace them. And considering how much winter there is up here making a snowy mess, it's not a difficult choice.

 

But because of bad arches and knees, I got into the habit of wearing a pair of gym shoes with spare orthopaedic insoles that never go outside.

Yes.

 

Normally, I take off my shoes in a side room of the house rather than at the door because there's more room there.  If I'm only walking on the hardwood floors, I will sometimes keep my shoes on, although i prefer to swap to my house slippers.  If I'm going to walk on carpet and I'm still wearing my shoes, I take them off first.

Caveat to my early reply, I do take them off if I have been walking through snow.

In the former home I took them off the door and switched to slippers.

In the new home I often wear them indoors, we have a natural stone floor now.

Take them off.

 

Indoor slippers / house shoes optional.

Take them off. Our rugrat still crawls around and puts everything in her mouth. Of course, we did that anyway before we had a rugrat.

Used to depend on how dirty they were. Now take them off. God forbid I left a couple crumbs of dust on my wife's sterile floors. I hate sandals but now have a set by the main door for when I'm zipping in and out of the house quick for example when barbecuing.

Normally take them off, unless I'm doing something that requires multiple trips in and out.

Take them off. The outdoors doesn't need brought indoors. Plus it was ingrained in me to take my shoes off as a child by my mother so as not to dirty her carpet. So much that to this day I cringe whenever I see someone step on carpet with shoes.

 

Now, having a set of shoes that are only for indoor use is perfectly acceptable. But the minute it touches the outside, it becomes an outdoor pair.
