Why you shouldn't walk in the same shoe or sock: where did the strange omen come from
All paired wardrobe items are given special significance by the people. After all, they lose their properties, and therefore, superstitious people believe, begin to have a negative impact on the fate of its owner.
OBOZREVATEL investigated why it is considered wrong to walk in one sock or one shoe. And what omens are associated with it.
These omens apply to all stockings. And all types of shoes. That is, anything that can be worn on the feet and has a pair.
The most obvious meaning of the omen has to do with parting. And even tragic. Thus, people believe that he who walks in one sock or in one shoe, will soon lose his closest relatives - his mother or father, or even both parents.
In the interpretation of the omen, paired things are associated specifically with parental figures. If they are broken, the union of mother and father will also be broken. And if they do not get on very well, it can bring their separation, and if they love each other - it rather portends the death of one of the couple.
Also, the habit of walking this way portends a person who is not in a relationship to be alone for a long time. Perhaps even a lifelong loneliness. This is especially dangerous for women, they say. It is also said that it is better to walk barefoot than in one shoe.
Since socks, stockings and shoes are associated with the feet, breaking a pair of them also carries over into a person's path. It is believed that walking in one shoe can cause memory loss and a person will not be able to remember the way home.
It is also a bad omen to see a sock or shoe without a pair in a dream. It means that you are facing a conflict that will involve you against your will. Or a secret that you wanted to keep will be revealed. If you dream that you are walking in one sock or steamed shoes, it portends an unfortunate trip - holiday, business trip, etc.
