Can you please remove your shoes?
Loic Le Meur

Its normal in our place in SF and that of all of our friends. Most people just ask when they come in the door but it is awkward to ask people who don’t think of it. I can see if people weren’t expecting it they might have a chipped pedicure or socks with holes that they weren’t expecting to show off! Some houses I have been to offer up guest slippers. That could be an option for you :).
