It's rather common to see a man slip his dress socked foot out of his loafer when standing up talking to somebody or sitting down and eating his lunch. For the sake of getting a little comfortable in the office, have you ever or do you often remove your shoes at your desk or anywhere near the vicinity of your office?

Maybe I'm just speaking for myself, but I've always gotten turned on at the sight of a well-dressed man dangling his loafers or slipping them off at a library or someplace private.

When I was a cubicle troll, I never really did. Once I got promoted into my own office with a window and door and all the fixins, I would do it every now and then.

I have not ever removed my shoes in a public place.

Yes I have. I've even walked around the office with shoes off.

Because I had to stand all day long at my job, I slipped out of my loafers every now and then. If there was carpeting, I would walk around with them off, but for me I'd rather see another man do it.

Or, perhaps better yet, Have You Ever Removed Your Hairpiece/Dentures/Prosthetic Limb In The Office?

I've never been turned on by it, but I frequently take my shoes off while in the office.

My shoes stay on my feet, unless I'm in the privacy of my own home...and even then, it is not a routine occurrence!

I've been in the office for the last hour or so with my shoes off, but no one else is here.

Sounds like a fetish.

I haven't removed them since that time I noticed the maintenance guys running around looking for a gas pipe leak...
