I don’t wear shoes. You don’t have to.(Original post by eMuires)
Hey everyone, I'll be moving to Manchester in September to start uni there, and I've heard Brits tend to wear shoes inside. Is this really true? Can anyone justify it?
Some people don’t and some do.

Some people like you to take your shoes off, and others don’t mind. I think it’s often a case of how clean your carpets are. If they’re pristine then it’s likely that the homeowner would like you to take your shoes off to keep them that way. If the carpets were already dirty when they moved in, or if they’re going to be changed, or if the floors are laminate etc, they might not mind.
In my house, my dad is disabled and has to wear a strap around his ankle that attaches to his shoe to keep his foot at a 90 degree angle, so he has to wear shoes inside, therefore we leave it up to the visitor as to whether or not they keep their shoes on.
