Footware is often thought standard for people. Others rather go barefoot for health, spirituality, expression, or other various reasons. It is not illegal to drive barefoot in California (despite [WWW]urban legends), nor is there any health code requirement that restaurant or business patrons wear shoes ([WWW]Source). Businesses can certainly ask you to leave, but they are also allowed to let you stay.
