Take that dirty shit off and go bare foot or put slippers on.
You Europeans are something else. Stick to making us good cars and eating butter by the pound. What are you a size 6? I'd take my shoes off too.

Hate to break it to you but no one in America wants to see your little bare feet running around their house like a toddler. Keep it socked or in a shoe and try to be normal for once in your life.

Geez, I was looking for comfy slipper recommendations and started a war. Good thing I'm not a politician.

I do recommend loafers they are pretty comfortable and are good for my flat feet. The only shoes that don't touch my sacred floors are my running shoes. Keep these in garage behind some caution tape with a couple dryer sheets in there. Seems to help lol

Point is youíre walking outside stepping on who knows what (urinal example was perfect) then you come home and walk around your house. Iím sorry but that is not acceptable.

Also donít you wanna take your shoes off after being in them all day?

My routine as soon as I get in is take my shoes off, then straight to the bathroom without touching anything and wash my hands (and yes this was pre corona virus). Then I take my socks off and let my damn feel air out.

I feel comfortable walking around my floors barefoot knowing I can hop on a sofa and put my feet up. Let me guess you go on your sofa/bed with your shoes (like they do in the movies)?

That depends on the part of Europe where you're coming from. In Germany its more an east/west thing. The easterns had almost kinda extra slippers at their front doors, which you could take when you took your street shoes off. North Westerns dont care if visitos wear their steetshoes as long as they are clean

To dont hijack the thread any longer: Im wearing Birkenstocks clogs.

Our house was built in the early 1800's, you wouldn't dare walk around barefoot, no matter how well you refinish them, 400 year old wood will always splinter and bite your feet. Splinters through socks is even worse.

We change into Uggs Ascots when we come home if it's winter, or Nike slides for the summer. I'm working from home now, so I've got a pair of Coach slippers for the day that look less sloppy and I kind of like them.

As a joke I received a pair of Gucci "business in the front, party in the back" Princeton slippers. They put the "slip" in slippers so I can't recommend them, and they're goofy as Hell.

We let guests wear their shoes though and being a freak, I just vacuum after they leave.

For summer I just raw dog it. We clean the floors plenty so it's fine.

I married into an Asian family and first learned about inside vs outside shoes when my now wife schooled me to it. These are what I wear in the house if it's chilly. L. L. Bean are great quality

If I'm in the house I'm most likely barefoot. Get too warm with all the other shit on my feet. First thing I do when I get home from work or working out is take my socks off, such a great feeling of relief lol.

What I find totally weird is these people who expect everyone to remove their shoes when entering their home never, ever have anything to sit on near the door. Instead I'm untying my laces as I put a knee down on the floor. It's like they didn't foresee people adhering to their own ocd policy.

Just funny reading all the post and seems like culture has alot to do with this. When I had my new bamboo flooring installed my buddy (white dude) walks right in with his steel toe work boots and I literally almost had a heart attack lol. It almost sounded like he had a couple of small rocks wedged into the sole. Than walks into the living room right on top of the wife's shaggy white throw rug. We're asian

I just walked around in bare feet most of the time, until I recently looked at my feet. Now I wear Birks without a heel strap most of the time.

Shoes or slippers are like casts on your feet, your feet and body for that matter are best barefoot as much as possible. I think climate plays a roll in this though as well, it's not practical to go barefoot in al regions maybe, but in Florida it is.

We keep our floor spotless, thanks to our amazing cleaning lady to be honest, we have 2 little boys, if they always kept their shoes on, forget it .

When it's colder, I have some L.L. Bean slippers similar to those posted earlier, very comfy and they last decently long.

From what I have experienced, people in colder climates have a higher portion of people that will remove shoes when they enter the home. Pretty sure that dealing with snow/ mud etc for a larger portion of the year, you just develop the habit to keep floors clean and dry, as tracking snow/ sale etc through the house sucks.

Running shoes with stiff arch support are for just that; running.
When a kid I started using orthotic insoles. I could barely stand up the next day. If you treasure your flat feet you need no arch support. If you find flat feet a flaw to be corrected (it is) you should mind conditioning your feet appropriately.

That means they must clean it up after you. Let them wipe your ass as well (unless you never wipe it either).

With all that said, I'd rather put those plastic shoe bags on my shoes to keep my socks clean as well , but it's the host who rules his house.

Those socks might be like boots and provide social distancing.

Such an interesting remark! A courtesy wheelchair should be perfect here! It is apparent those people find it absolutely comfortable handling their shoes standing. Following rules, maintaining one's home is an important contribution into maintaining one's personality. And physical condition.

He's not your buddy anymore, I presume.


I use UGG slippers and moccasins currently. They are fine but they lack arch support completely.

After you take your shoes off, do you go change your clothes too before you sit on anything and get your dirty ass ass all over the couch or the chairs???

Clean enough to be healthy, dirty enough to be happy.

I also have some Minnetonka slippers, but that's normally for me/dog to walk outside and take a leak in the grass. Yes, both of us.

Sure. I find it important I don't live on the street, especially as I don't really like it there. I'd rather keep all the shit outside and feel comfortable in my privacy.

It's all right it takes some additional effort. They say there's a stone in Tibet with a writing on it: "Have you learned to enjoy obstacles?".

Meh, I'm 49, and have lived with it my whole life. No harm, no foul. As long as I don't stand for long periods I'm fine.

I'm not sure where the hell you guys live on here, trekking through piss covered floors and shit apparently, but I walk on clean paved surfaces in sunny Florida 99% of the time. Shoes stay clean and we use a door mat like civilized human beings. Whatever isn't caught in the mat fibers is disinfected when the cleaning company comes once a week. Having no carpet helps though, no gonna lie. We do have a rug in the master that I avoid like the plague as its white, but I walk everywhere else.
