Looking at the stats, this blog seems to be getting a lot of visits from readers in France. Maybe removing shoes at the door is a hot topic over there.

This blog recommends that you adopt a shoes-off policy in your home, not just for family but also for guests and other visitors. Socks, slippers and bare feet are fine indoors, but not shoes. Just say NO to shoes in your house!
