    If

    I would like to know the difference between "1" and "2".
    1. If I were in your shoes, I would have done the same thing.
    2. If I had been in your shoes, I would have done the same thing.

    2. The protasis (clause subordinate) - "if I had been in your shoes" - is a past unreal condition.
