The walk from another person(s) house, apartment, condo, dorm, van, bar, park bench or other; to your place of residence wearing the same clothes you had on the night before.

Typically used when someone leaves the home of a sexual escapade (quite possibly with someone you met the night before) in the morning; hair sticking out in all directions, lines on your face, and missing at least one article of clothing.

In the event that your “Walk of Shame” did include sex, you may be wearing your partner’s clothes. If you did not have sex you probably did get into a fight, damaged property, was escorted off someone’s premises, or in someway embarrassed yourself. In any case you will need to check yourself for injuries.
Still half-drunk, I began the walk of shame to my room, and made a futile attempt to recall all that I had done on Friturday.

n. 1. As stated in other definitions, walking out of someone's place in the same clothes on as when you went in there last night.
2. When you are in a public bathroom, to create something especially unholy that makes the whole restroom smell, and then walk out of the stall while the bathroom's various patrons scowl at you.
1. I made her take the walk of shame in front of all my dorm-mates this morning because i was feeling extra hung over.
2. As I took the walk of shame I saw all my co-workers holding their noses and giving me the evil eye.

After randomly spending the night out, you have to walk out of the house, hotel room, etc. with the clothes from the night before, with make-up smeared, hung-over, holes in hosery and hair pushed up in back from bumping up and down in bed all night.
Hey yall, the frat house had a big ball last night, bet there are some bad looking, hung-over, babes doing the "walk of shame"this morning.

New Years day is the biggest "walk of shame" day for the University Comfort Suites. We should sell tickets, at least You Tube that sucker...........

The walk every man must take when he eventually misses a shot at a trash can and needs to pick it up and drop it in. The Walk can be even worse if he alerts his buddies of his intentions, and worse still if the ball of garbage is consisted of many other pieces of trash, which burst mid-flight and which he must pick up.
John was ballin' all day on the basket ball court, but one missed paper ball threw him into the walk of shame.

whenever a female sleeps with a guy and in the morning she has to walk out of his place looking like a hoe
That hoe took the walk of shame.

Refers to a phenomenon in which a person must walk past strangers or peers alone for an embarrassing reason before reaching a place of privacy.
"Where were you tonight?"
(Awkwardly avoiding answering the question)"Ugh...I was at this meeting thing."
"Oh really I saw you go into a place called the Loft on Green St. And looking around like you wanted no one to see you. Sort of like you were doing the walk of shame."
"I thought it was the entrance to Brother's!"

When you have to walk home, after a one night stand, or a night of wild sex
And how was your walk of shame?
