Not everything carried in on your sneakers is invisible to the naked eye. Dust and dirt built up from your shoes can easily be carried into your living quarters. Even if it’s not toxic, carrying dust and debris in from the park or trail isn’t ideal. Remove your shoes to keep things clean and tidy, and think about investing in a doormat to catch anything you might track in before you undo your laces.
It is interesting that the author assumes the reader is living in a trailer park. Certainly those living in muddy trailer parks definitely should be keen to go shoe-free.
