★★★★
“The intimate exposure to the details of another’s life will stay with you long after you have returned their shoes to the box”

ArtsHub

To understand another person, try walking a mile in their shoes. This pop-up store, housed in a giant shoebox in Cologne, allows you to do just that.

Visitors are invited to enter the store and try on a pair of shoes that belong to someone else and to listen to their story. It might be a tale of loss and sadness, hope and love, of odds overcome. But whoever’s shoes you walk in, A Mile in My Shoes will take you to places you can’t anticipate.

Created by artist Clare Patey and produced by Artsadmin, A Mile in My Shoes has been experienced in London, Sao Paulo, New York, Riga, Denver, Perth and Melbourne.
