    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?

    Thanks!

    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.

    Idk about barefoot though.

    The Shulchan aruch and mishna brura say it isn’t tzniut, however R Moshe said now its no longer considered untzinuit, so its permissible.

    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.

    Why would the A”H bring down societal trends that have no basis in Yiddishkeit?

    Abe: There are plenty of times where Yiddishkeit cares about societal norms.

    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!

    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! 😉
