To see the world from someone else’s shoes

During halftime on a Monday Night football game, a public service announcement was made regarding NFL community service. A voiceover said “to see the world from someone else’s shoes”. This is a congruent conflation of “walk in someone else’s shoes” and “see the world through someone else’s eyes”, both meaning to understand another’s experience or perspective. Not sure one would get much of a perspective seeing from another’s shoes. A big thanks to Bruce Ryan for hearing this one and sending it in!
