In France, guests keep their shoes on.
But you must introduce them into your house :
“Entrez, je vous en prie”
If they bring something (what they might do), or they give it to you spontaneously, or they are shy and you must take the present : “merci beaucoup”, “c'est très gentil”, “ça me fait plaisir”.
This must take place in the hall of your house. Do not let your guests become embarrassed with a bottle of wine or a bunch of flowers they can't hide...
Then, you take their coats :
“Donnez-moi vos manteaux”
Then, you indicate the way :
“Par ici” (this way), you might add “suivez-moi” (follow me).
“Asseyez-vous” (have a seat)
If there are already other guests and you want to introduce everybody, say :
“je vous présente Monsieur xxx”, “voici Madame ssss”,
“Monsieur xxx, Madame xxxx”.
