In Vietnamese culture, we usually take off our shoes when entering a home, as a sign of respect. Friends will tell me to do whatever makes me comfortable when I visit their homes, so I do what most of the people in the home are doing - if they've got their shoes on, I'll keep mine on and vice versa. A relative's home, however, I will always remove my shoes before entering, regardless of floor type (usually tile...). I bring socks in my bag if I didn't plan on wearing any with my shoes.
Do You Have Shoe Storage in the Entryway?
