Only time I enforce the shoe rule is for school, bike or scooter or doctor appointment or the likes. Just playing outside or going to the shops they aren't really needed

I let DD walk in the backyard/driveway/verandah barefoot my parents were appalled honestly it didn't even occur to me to put shoes on to go outside your front door...

We have a child friendly yard with lush green buffalo grass all round so yes, they don't have to wear shoes and often don't in our own yard but have been taught from very early to wear shoes when out of our yard and always do without any issue.

I don't wear shoes in my yard or on my driveway (and quite often don't bother when I'm crossing the road to the tennis courts opposite us) so I won't be making DD either. Out to the shops and at school etc then yes she will wear shoes. Saying that I used to wander around barefoot in summer whenever I was outside - just took thongs with me to put on if I was going into a store.

Barefoot bandit family here. I take my shoes off at any opportunity. So do my kids. DH can't have this luxury as often as he wears orthotics and if he has shoes off for extended periods experiences pain.
ETA - I insist on shoes in public.

In our own garden, or friends/family gardens that are safe then no shoes if he particularly wants to remove them. But anywhere else yes in case of glass etc. Definitely at the shops, think it's so gross seeing people walk around in shops without shoes on. Their feet are filthy, and probably don't wash them before walking into the house or getting into bed. Ewww. Pet hate of mine.
