I think it’s more a northern western thing? I’m not sure, I never wear shoes indoors. I knew a family who had very specific shoe rules: outdoor shoes, indoor slippers, carpet socks, and back porch slip-ons. Very hard to visit.In my family (which is pretty much white except for me) we are pretty much no-shoes-inside-the-house people. Like, that’s the rule with few exceptions (my gran wears her sneakers because she has bad feet and needs to).

My friend D*, she’s from El Salvador (studying in Canada since the past eight years), always always gets reprimanded by me for wearing the wrong slippers in the wrong room.And thappad is the ONLY reasonable solution to germ carrying people who refuse to remove shoes at the door. Never been more proud of being Indian, I should say.
