It's becoming common in the UK to remove your shoes when you enter a house, though not universal as it is in Scandinavia. Most of my friends automatically do. I have some hotel slippers somewhere in my boxes to offer people, though many are happy in socks. I often take my slippers to houses. I think it's a great habit, but sometimes it means I can't wear a particular outfit, like a mid length skirt, because it only looks right with the right length boots. On occasion I find this frustrating, though I usually wear trousers (pants). What is the norm in the US? ??

I asked my husband last night what was wrong with us, as while we were watching yet another home improvement show, yet another couple said, "We have to rip all this out, because we need to room to entertain." We don't entertain. Pretty much ever. So, I live vicariously through you. And, while I was not a "take your shoes off when you come in" person when we met, my husband the Alaskan was, so now we do that. Alaskan mud rooms are a thing, where there's a form of entryway where you can take off your boots and coats, etc., and it really does keep the house and rugs much cleaner. Since we don't entertain, we also don't go to other people's houses much either, so I have no idea if lots of other people do that.
