Agreed!

Additionally... some people, especially those with age, have shoes and inserts inside shoes that assist their feet for continued structural [bone/toe] alignments as well as general comfort. In other words... some people need their shoes on.

Perhaps their feet issues are partially from wearing shoes all the time. When I get home from work, the first thing that comes off are my shoes! I can't imagine wearing shoes all day--how uncomfortable. No wonder why people have feet problems!

I don't want shoes that have been in a filthy public restroom, outside in the dirt, on dog poop, with gum stuck on them, etc. on my house's clean floors or my boat's decks! Yuk! And you may have hygiene issues if your outdoor shoes are cleaner than your socks or bare feet. To each their own though!

I take my shoes off when home and on the boat. I do wear slippers. Lot more comfortable than wearing shoes or walking barefoot or with socks.

And by wearing slippers I'm not smearing the sweat, toe jam and fungus from my feet onto the floor.

I would wear slippers too if I had that problem!

Those ugly “Crocs” make good, in-house footwear. Just don’t wear them outside.
