Sure if you going to stay in the house all day you don't need to put your shoes on. And if you feel the need to leave them on when you come home....well that's what you do! I usually take mine off right away because my feet are tired and my Mum would kick my ass if I wear them in the house but many people don't feel the need to take them off. A lot of the time guests are not expected to take off their shoes either. See! That is why the West is so "Free".
Well, the same happens here. People don't usually take their shoes off at home. I do, though, probably because I was raised that way: the first thing my parents do when they get home is to take off their shoes and put their slippers on. That's why me and my siblings do it, too.
I remember back in college my roommate didn't take her shoes off until she went to bed. Sometimes it made me nervous
