When you walk a mile in someone else's shoes, you understand that person better. Your relationship becomes as comfortable as an old shoe, and you find yourself spending time together kicking up your heels. Around the world, footwear is an integral part of the human perspective. It may tell you a person's values, status, occupation, or favorite hobbies at a glance. Wouldn't it feel great to travel the world in a variety of new shoes and never get a blister? You bet your boots.
