The idea came from how many hats we put on in a day, week, months and/or years. Instead of hats though, I chose shoes because we put them on everyday of a particular purpose. We wear many pairs shoes in everyday life. Sometimes we accidentally step on something and make a discovery. Some days we get stepped on and we pause to take a closer look to see what happened. We carry them daily and we fill it with purpose. Look back on the trail we made and identify the footprints left behind. It's more than just about function and fashion.
