Shoes are the first thing to come off me when I get home. I don't put them on again until I'm ready to go somewhere.
As soon as it's warm enough outside, I go barefoot in my leisure time. I don't generally go barefoot inside my home in the winter because paying less for heating is more important to me than not wearing socks and slippers.
I can't say I mind wearing shoes in professional and social settings, but I do like taking them off at friends' houses when we're settling in for an evening of games, food and movies or whatever.
My sister is way into barefooting, or at least she was growing up. I remember laughing while watching her leap over piles of snow on a scamper out to the mailbox on a cold winter day.
Here at work, a bunch of us will take off our shoes/sandals in the summer when we're going to be in the office for awhile and not expecting any visitors. If we get called up to the front desk, we put shoes on.
