Do you and your kids take off your shoes at the door?

Our family always removes our shoes in the vestibule when we enter our house. Do you do the same or sometimes leave your shoes on?

  • We take ours off at the door. But they stay there in case we need to go outside for something.

  • It's the general rule but that doesn't mean that it always happens:)

  • My entire living rooms seems to be my teenagers closet! Yes we take them off. Mine go by the front door and theirs go flying! I pick them up periodically and put them on their beds. They don't like that so every once in a while they'll put their shoes where they belong..by the door or in their closet. It's an endless battle.....LOL

  • We did at our last house, but this one has the laminate flooring which is COLD! So, now, we leave our shoes on.

  • We have hard wood floor so no worries about stains on the carpets, but during the winter we always take them off by the door, and during the summer we also take them off right by the door unless we know we're only gonna be in for a short while before heading right back out.

  • I take mine off and when the kids lived here they took theirs off. I feel that it keeps from tracking dirt into the house. But then my husband comes tromping in with his dirty work shoes on! LOL!

  • We always take ours off. The only time we don't is if we're only running in for a quick minute, like someone forgets a library book or their lunch or something. We never wear shoes inside. We wear slippers, if it's cold, but that's it.
