I have heard that one should always wear shoes or slippers and not go around barefooted or with only socks on as it is a derech aveilus.
Anyone have sources and more info on this topic?

1) It is the minhag Hamakom today for many if not most people to walk around at home without shoes.
2) It is not the Minhag Hamakom of Minhag Aveilus here today to walk around without shoes or slippers.

The Shulchan aruch and mishna brura say it isn’t tzniut, however R Moshe said now its no longer considered untzinuit, so its permissible.September 4, 2011 8:30 pm at 8:30 pm #805934
Abelleh; can you tell me where Reb Moshe says this.

The Aruch Hashulchan quotes that there is nothing possible that is more disgusting (wrong word but close enough) to do than to walk around barefoot. I still feel that it is a very societal thing though.September 4, 2011 11:04 pm at 11:04 pm #805937Abe CohenParticipant
Why would the A”H bring down societal trends that have no basis in Yiddishkeit?September 4, 2011 11:35 pm at 11:35 pm #805938Sam2Participant

the orchas tyzdikkim says that the absolute most digusting thing is being drunk. i assue he means more then bartefoot.September 5, 2011 5:31 pm at 5:31 pm #805942
Drunk and barefoot is obviously worse. A real drunk goes barefoot. If the guy is still wearing shoes he isn’t drunk vee is darft tzu zein!September 5, 2011 5:46 pm at 5:46 pm #805943wanderingchanaParticipant
I love reading the things people post here…September 5, 2011 10:59 pm at 10:59 pm #805944
WIY; A real drunk walks around barefoot and thinks he’s wearing shoes. You haven’t seen anything till you see him trying to polish his feet! 😉
