Most Americans Don’t Wear Shoes Inside Their Home
Chattanooga, Tennessee—(Wise Brother)
There are two types of homes: The ones where people wear shoes inside for comfort . . . convenience . . . and to reduce the clutter by doors. And the ones where people DON’T wear shoes inside . . . because it’s gross.
In a new poll, 63% of Americans say they take their shoes off inside, while 37% DO wear shoes inside.
But 76% are not willing to ask their guests to remove their shoes . . . including 67% of the group who don’t wear shoes inside themselves.
It isn’t THAT imposing though. 90% of people think that it’s a “reasonable request” since it’s YOUR home. 10% think it’s unreasonable.
In the poll, it seems like the shoes-off thing is more common among younger adults. 44% of Gen Z say they’ll ask guests to remove their shoes . . . 35% of Millennials agree, as do 13% of Gen X and 7% of Boomers.
