In Their Words: “When the idea of writing ‘Walking Shoes’ came to mind it was originally about how hard it was for me to remove myself from a relationship that was obviously failing. It was me wanting to and knowing that I should walk away from the relationship but not wanting to hurt someone even more than I already have by leaving. As I continued to write the song it became more about starting everything over and realizing what I needed to let go of to do so. It’s about realizing that you can’t live a meaningful life and offer anything to anyone until you’ve walked alone long enough to figure yourself out. ‘Walking Shoes’ to me is about saying goodbye to what once seemed so necessary and taking a gamble by saying hello to the unknown in hopes it brings me happiness.” — Arlo McKinley
