Sorry I should had mentioned shoe etiquette instead. Shoes that had walked through vomit, human excretion, garbage, and all that within a city have no place on a mattress, sheets, table, or chair where people sit and sometimes put their hands on. Or blankets people put on the sand/grass for picnics to lay on. Places near stations are particularly bad. Shoes can also scuff up and leave marks on these things and walls. The good thing is people are increasingly aware these days of not having shoes on fine finished floors and carpets in dwellings unless the host is Truely fine with it. at least in parts of the world that once didn't care at all not so long ago. But they might still not be too aware of how gross putting shoes that went through all that crap up where they are allowed to wear shoes.

So you mean a majority of footwear wearers all share the same behavior? And it's not because sneakers are a more casual accessory than stylish choice, hence the more casual behavior? Look at your examples: propped up on walls/coffee tables, whatever: sandals would come off easier, dress shoes could be scuffed, outfits that go with these accessories are less appropriate to kick your feet up, (i.e. dresses/skirts and dress clothes/suits). I've never understood the issue with keeping shoes on inside a home; i can't remember the last time I went to a friends place and there was a pile of shoes by the door. I'd say anything more than sandals it's not worth the hassle to remove.

It seems like the majority of people wear sneakers most of the time these days, so naturally the majority of people putting their feet in rude places are going to be wearing sneakers. I don't think this is all there is to it though, since it also seems likely that there's a correlation between being someone who cares enough about appearance/fashion to wear something \*other\* than sneakers, and \*not\* putting one's feet in rude places.
