Hey, this is under the wrong heading bit just in case someone might want to know, Edwin explains himself by saying, "You'll wear them reversed for the first two weeks of your banishment to show humility and shame." Edwin wants Cole to feel his experience and comprehend his penance in a way that Cole can understand.
