“Always put yourself in other people’s shoes” is A well-known Idiom.
Joke part of the idiom
“Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes. After that who cares?… He is a mile away and you’ve got his shoes”

The real part of the Idiom
Is this idea of putting yourself in someone else’s shoes …does it work all the time?

Unless one possesses these three qualities, the idiom does not serve the purpose.

Thank you for your visit.
Take care, my friend.
