Barefoot in the kitchen

Jumping off a gel mat thread --
Nearly all of my shoes are heels. Some spikey.
I never wear shoes in the house, although I occasionally wear "moon boots" [terry cloth sock with a rubber sole].
Do you guys have //kitchen// shoes?
Kitchen floors that don't like heels?
I go barefoot at home except when my feet are cold, when I wear fuzzy slippers, and my husband always wears slippers. Never shoes in the house!
We don't have kitchen shoes, but we do have bathroom slippers.
I take my shoes off when I walk in my house; I've always liked going barefoot or at the least with socks on. The only time I put shoes on in the kitchen is if I have my bedroom shoes on or if I have company.
in general, i NEVER wear shoes in the house, so no shoes in the kitchen as well. house slippers are always available tho. funny memory from years ago: i remember my mom wrapping the furniture movers' shoes in saran wrap when they refused to remove their shoes in my parent's home.
why would anyone need shoes for the home kitchen? is there a benefit?
beyond the safety issue (spilled hot food, scalding oil, dropping knives -- see below) my last kitchen had heavy ceramic tile -- painfully cold in the wintertime, and hard on my feet, ankles, and knees when I was in the kitchen for hours on end.
Slippers for the cold -- sneakers if I was going to be in the kitchen all day -- the support and cushioning were necessary.
