I grew up in a house in which the family members always took off our shoes in the entry hall. Certainly, I was required to do so, as I was the one most likely to have been crawling around in mud. By now it's now an ingrained habit. I'll bet this is common in a lot of American households. Where we draw the line is in requiring guests to follow suit. In fact, in my house, we went the opposite way. When we had guests, we all put our shoes on. It would have been odd to be shoeless while our guests wore shoes.
