    For us as a family (well the kids and me) we're shoes off as much as possible. The kids because it's better for growing feet to not be in shoes all day, and for me it's a comfort thing. I love being barefoot. I just don't care whether my guests leave their shoes on or not. Whatever floats their boat really.

    I have no idea - I don't know anyone who takes their shoes off in their home, or expects their guests to do it...and I've been to a lot of houses. It is interesting seeing there are lots of people who do it on this thread.

    I am the opposite, I find it really icky walking around in bare feet. I don't know why - I just hate it, even on fresh shampooed carpet. But then, I am one if those people who is accident prone - I have had more stubbed toes that I care to remember - so maybe I am a bit scared? Plus - here in winter is freezing, it would be ultra rude to ask people to take their shoes off when it could be as low as -7.

    Planter warts on the floor! Ew, that is way worse for bubs to be crawling around on that shoe germs. And personally - I'd rather shoe germs, than smelly feet on show for everyone to see. yuck!

    So the floors get dirty? No big deal in my opinion. That's what the vacuum and mop are for.

    I take mine off and DH leaves his on. Drives me nuts - he tracks grass in all the time.

    As for guests - I'm not bothered - Im a bit OCD and Im going to have the vacuum out before they finish pulling out the driveway anyway.

    I can see how it could be done if you had one or two kids, or if you lived in a warm area where you could wear thongs. But where I live in winter, you have to wear winter boots, not even sneakers will cut it, I have 4 kids, 3 who can't do their own shoes yet - if I made them put their shoes on every time they went outside and then take them off every time they came in - I would literally get nothing else done in the day!

    Do your kids put shoes on every time they go outside and then take them off again?
