But it seems like in most other countries, it's considered rude to remove your shoes in a home, unless you live there. While if you don't remove your shoes in a Swedish home, it might not be considered rude, but people might think you're weird. Fortuneately, I've never visited any homes outside Sweden, so I've never offended anyone by removing my shoes.
A lot of places where the climate is bad have a shoe removing policy. I believe people in Minnesota remove their shoes but then again they have a large Scandinavian population
