This is a sign that one man is unloosened from the Law, and the other is tied to it. Deut 25:9 describes how the wife of the dead man loosened the sandal and spat in the face of the man who was unwilling to revive the dead man’s name. But this was when the woman was present, together with him, in front of the judges, and he refused to take her as his wife. But when another relative joined them, just as is described here, then the man himself loosened his sandal. (Nicholas of Lyra Com Ruth)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
