HOUSTON — Although “no shirt, no shoes, no problem” may sound like a great way to live, unless you’re Kenny Chesney, that’s probably tough to pull off.
A KHOU viewer asked us to verify if they had to wear shoes in public, because they often go barefoot.
For this, we checked in with KHOU legal analyst Gerald Treece.
Treece said there is no state law that requires shoes. A person can go barefoot in public if they want to. This includes on streets, parks and even driving.
However, businesses also have the right to set their own dress code and reserve the right not to serve a person that doesn’t comply.
So no shoes might also mean no service.
