Interesting topic. As Canadians, the wife and I were somewhat surprised when our American friends insisted / suggested we leave our shoes on whenever we dropped by their homes for a visit. We just assumed it was a gesture of friendship, they were being thoughtful ie: cold floors, convenience, etc., but we always took them off anyway. We considered it extremely impolite or arrogant not to. I had not even considered the possibility they might actually prefer that we leave them on.

As to our boat, I believe sock feet is an invitation to an accident and we advise our guests to leave their shoes on if they prefer.
