You may not have a new carpet
You may have an old carpet that needs replacing or a wooden
floor that is covered in scratch marks. But if you have a shoes-off policy, it will make it easier for those who do have a new carpet to do the same.

But if you have a no-shoes rule in your house, it will send a signal that it is okay for those who do.
