The Testimony Of The Shoe

Anything concerning change or redeeming was acted-out by the shoe exchange.
As in the marriage contract of Ruth (the stranger) with Boaz for the Biblical gain.
A man acquires a woman in one of-3-ways: money, contract, and intercourse.
Such diversified relationships of today; a contract of shoe might not be recourse.

Ideologically, unlike biblical times, this contract is never done with a shoe.
A coin was hollowed out to make a ring; its value had to be of solid metal too.

Thus terms of that contract, agreed upon, confirmed their path to attain.
The chuppah/ or symbolic bridal chamber was “a canopy” held over the new bride.
