No seating? Sorry, but the shoes stay on.
I had this problem when I lived in a home where the woman insisted I remove my shoes. I was in a surgical boot, which made it very difficult to walk in with groceries. There was a bench by the front door, however. I moved after less than 4 months. Fortunately, she had thick carpet, but it was a problem for me and often caused pain.
I suppose if someone is that concerned about germs, an antibacterial spray can be used. Just making suggestions, since I saw the thread and have been in homes where shoes aren't allowed. Where I am now, it's difficult for me to walk around barefoot because of the wood floors. So I either wear slippers or socks.
