    Thumbs up Remove your shoes. Is correct?

    I used to say "remove your shoes" and remove your clothes

    But now I say "take off your clothes" and take off your shoes

    Which is correct? Please help!

    Re: Remove your shoes. Is correct?

    Both are correct. "Remove" your shoes is maybe just a bit more formal than "take off," but both are perfectly acceptable.

    And assuming it's a request, 'Could you take off ..., please.'

    I would say 'take off your jacket/coat', if that's what you mean by 'take off your clothes', for fear of a misunderstanding.

    Re: Remove your shoes. Is correct?

    After I checked my dictionary its possible to use all of these for removing shoes...
    (take off, doff, put off, slip off).
