To see things from other people’s shoes

This mashup was spotted on Facebook.  Here is the post:

This is a congruent conflation of “through the eyes of (someone)” and “walk (stand) in (someone’s) shoes”, both meaning to consider another’s perspective, experience, or motivation.  “See things from another angle” might also be in the mix.  Then again, a pair of nice, shiny patent leather shoes could literally help you do this.  A big thanks to Grant Shipley for spotting this and Yvonne Stam for sending it in.
