Talking language corner ^^

Hi people!
I'd like to ask you all kinda weird wish...

Me and my mates from our halls of residence need to put Take your shoes off! sign on the door and we want to put it in as many languages as possible, because there are always morons coming and soiling our rug.

So basically i beg all of you to post translation of
Quote:
Take your shoes off!
in your language in your native fonts, no transliteration please!
Also let the sentence be in 2nd person plural imperative, no polite form.
Eg. Ziehen Sie Ihre Schuhe aus! is wrong while Zieht eure Schuhe aus! is exactly what I need.

This is what I have so far (some might be wrong, so corrections are wellcome):
靴をぬぐて!
Снимите обувь!
Zieht eure Schuhe aus!
¡Quítate los zapatos!
Vyzujte si topánky!
Retirez vos chaussures!
Zdejmijcie buty!
Toglietevi le scarpe!
Vyzujte si boty!

Thank you all

Update:
Please, also include exclamation mark or its equivalent if possible.

To avoid misuderstandings just post the sentences as images. Note that Polish one doesn't include any special characters.

Dutch:

"Veeg je schoenen (godverdomme)!"
or not too literal:
"Schoenen vegen!"

the 'godverdomme' is goddammit, it sounds better in this case

Actually a more literal Dutch translation is "Doe je schoenen uit!"
Atresica's version translates as "clean your shoes"

Oh ok, use a "!" on the Hebrew as well then (Hebrew is written from right to left, so make the "!" on the left)

Weird, I must have misread that for some reason though

I know, I'm Polish

I doubt anyone would call the police though. I'd laugh if I saw that on a door where all the other signs said "take off your shoes"....

Take off your shoes ---> Trek je schoenen uit ??

Or is that only for t-shirts and stuff..? I can't really 'trek' my shoes off, so I'll go with atre's translation

It all sounds so... unnice.

wouldn't it be better to make it sound like: "would you please be so kind to take off your shoes?"
I would probably feel more compelled to do so.
