Do you take your shoes off at your door?

I almost always take my shoes off when I come through the door. I also do this when I visit at other people's homes. I was just told recently that this is odd...which I don't think it is because it is a normal practice within my friends and family. So I wondered what you do?

I always take my shoes off whenever I step into my home, or other people's home unless they insist that I leave them on. It is a very normal practice for me because it is the culture in my community. When other people visit my home, I would prefer they also take their shoes off on coming through the door of my apartment.

it is definitely not odd, everone here takes their sandals off when in their homes, or for that matter it is a culture here to remove your sandals or slippers outside the house you visit

Sure I do. I can't imagine otherwise. I wouldn't want to walk my dirty shoes everywhere around my house or anyone's house. :P
