Thank you for providing the additional details as it really does help arrive at the accurate interpretation and I kindly request that you provide all details remembered in the dreams you share in the future. Individuals assisting with interpretation will appreciate it 🙂
Please take everything that I share to the Holy Spirit as He Alone gives the accurate interpretation.
Two scriptures come to mind, I Corinthians 15:33 and I Corinthians 10:12 and I encourage you to meditate on them and ask God how it applies to your life and each of the friendship that you mentioned.
Here are some rhetorical questions for you:
1) “Why did you think that the boots were inappropriate resulting in you taking them off?”
2)Were the boots feminine or masculine? The style of boots, i.e., masculine or feminine would aid in interpretation as well. If they were feminine- ask yourself, ” Does he lead a questionable lifestyle that you were/are or not aware of? If masculine, perhaps she is preparing him for spiritual warfare, standing in the gap. This is assuming if she is a Christ-follower.
I hope this helps somehow.
