Thanks for all the replies! A good variety of responses here; I tend to fall in the category of shoes always on when in public but I'm not that fussed at home.
I like the idea of getting her used to shoes and hat outside though; for those who have always had their kids in shoes from a young age, how did you deal with the tantrums and refusal, and also which shoes are the easiest to get on. I bought some pre walkers from Target but they're a nightmare to get on! It takes forever and I have to squash her feet into them which she hates, just not worth the effort.

DS2 has only just started wearing shoes. He is 14 months old and always outside. He likes one pair of shoes which is why I've been able to get him to wear them. I'm not bothered if he doesn't wear them at home or our family's houses though. Also it's better for their development not to. DS1 mostly wears shoes but again I don't mind if he doesn't at home.

My dd isn't really walking yet. ..(She's about to get AFOs-leg braces that will be made with soles so they are like shoes!)... But I don't like being in public places without shoes...
Especially public toilets!! Ewwww. So shopping centres/parks etc she will always have shoes on.
Still. .I put her shoes on her when we go out.
At home. . in your own yard. .nope. Unless there were prickles etc.

Ds 3 hates shoes and will try to get away with not wearing them anywhere. I make him wear them out in public though but even as soon as he gets in the car he kicks his shoes off. At daycare all the kids take their shoes off and put them in the shoe box and run outside to play. I even hate wearing shoes and love the song on Sesame Street saying set your piggies (toes) free explore naturally!!

My toddler very rarely wears shoes. I believe in shoes are torture that you only put up with when you have too.

Most of the time yes as our grass area has prickles and we see inch ants quite often. Bees are are a worry too but honestly other than that I dont see it as a huge deal.

No shoes in the backyard but shoes in the front because there are bindies in the front.
