Being Chinese, I learn by the fact that yes, it's pretty much an Asian thing. But that doesn't make it seem it's though we don't wash our feet or that we're filthy.

For homeowners
Step 1: Take off your shoes by the door.
Step 2: Wash your feet / best of all SHOWER.
Step 3: Enjoy the home with clean floor.

As guests
Step 1: Be polite enough to ask whether to take off shoes or not.
Step 2: Wash if you feel uncomfortable, OR if you do know your feet reeks.
Step 3: Enjoy your friend's home!

Yes and I agree, have indoor shoes for those homeowners who doesn't practice barefoot policy.

What I still don't get is why shoes indoors? Dirt everywhere, tonnes to clean, scars and markings on floors (wood and marble alike), feet doesn't even take a breather. Why make things so difficult for home-living and yourself? And worst of all, shoes in the bedrooms (on beds/sofas even, ugh!). THAT FRACKING blows me away.
