Ever go to a party where the host/ess requested that everyone remove their shoes before entering? It's common here in , at least, where such a request could potentially keep dogshit, hepatitis, grime and countless other filth from being tracked all over your livingroom.

Removing shoes is an excellent custom.I wish more people would do it here in the UK.

They put their shoelaces in a bowl and pick. They then 'lace up' with the shoe belongs to the one they drew...
