Like the Scandinavians, here, nobody ever wears shoes inside the house. Partly it keeps the house cleaner, but mostly, it stops you trekking snow into the house for half the year. You remove your footwear in the hall
I do this here also but there is the matter of the back door - the kitchen floor becomes a kind of mud zone between garden and the house.
I liked the shoe-free house and mostly stuck to it for a decade... but I will, very occasionally, run back in in my shoes to pick up a forgotten essential.
The Norwegians seem not to have the thing with umpteen pairs of shoes for main house/balcony/garage/attic/bacxk garden/front garden etc., though. That was a mercy.
