shoes (2)

Since lockdown in March 2020 I started leaving my shoes outside my apartment door, because I didn’t want to bring Covid and other street ickyness into the house. And since there is only me and my downstairs neighbour here, and she never comes upstairs, I have kept on doing this. But now I have a flatmate again! And both of us have to take off our shoes before coming inside. So I have found this. It will fit snugly into a nook just outside the front door and looks like a perfect solution. The next thing will be to see if I manage to put it together (it’s being delivered this week)…

Question. Is it normal for you, where you live, to take off your shoes before entering someone’s home? It’s totally normal in Canada, not so much in Spain.
