    Yes.

    What part of "THEIR" house did you not understand?

    It's bull**** for several reasons:

    1)What makes you so confident that your floor is that clean?
    2)This is the West, not the East.
    3)I wear boots all the time and it takes me 20 minutes to take them off. The reason the Japanese started that stupid tradition is because they wore sandals back in they day, not laced shoes or boots.
    4)Peoples feet smell.
    I don't like it for #3 & 4.

    I wear boots and man do my feet small in the summer.

    My stepmother gets on the "take your shoes off" kick once in a while, but once my sister comes over and makes a fuss she backs off for a while.

    It's annoying.

    I'm wearing my steel toes, and if you don't like it, **** you. You can't fire me, and if you kick me out you'll have to pay the cancellation fee per the terms of the contract. If you're an asshole when this goes down, I'll personally sue you for loss of wages as OSHA requires me to wear steel toes while I'm installing in your house.

    Re: is it acceptable to require people to take off their shoes to enter your house

    Most times, yes.

    If I am having a get together with many guests, then of course not. Same with having someone come over to work on my house/appliances, etc... - of course I don't want some stranger tromping through my house with his/her shoes off...

    I have children and them and their friends need to kick their shoes off because they are not as self aware of how dirty their shoes get and it's easier than having tracked in mud and grime every other five minutes as they run in and out. Sorry if that bothers someone, but I like my house to be clean... not a nightmarish grime pit.

    A persons' house is their castle and I suppose if you don't like removing your footwear when you go to visit, then don't go or invite them over to your place.
    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice....shame on me.

    Whenever workmen and appliance repairmen enter my house, they always put heavy shoe covers over their boots. Never had anyone not do it automatically and without prompting of any kind.

    Well, gee. Thanks for the head's up, Mr. Lawsuit Happy. I'll be sure not to allow any kitchen rehab guys named Jerry into the place. *shrug*

    This thread is about requiring people to take their shoes off.

    No option of putting something over the shoe was ever established.

    Im not sure why you would want to live in a museum, you probably have plastic over your furniture, but if your floors are so precious then keep a box of shoe covers handy

    I'd rather put a cover over my boot, because if I lift my pant leg up to far while taking my boot off you might see the nose of my Glock

    The proper thing is to provide slippers for guests.

    Surprise! Mr. I'm-So-Effin'-Brilliant! I live in the wet, muddy woods in the Pacific Northwest, at the end of a gravel road that's at the end of a gravel road.

    Some people think they have ALL the answers....
