Thread: Guide to discovering skinny boots?

    Guide to discovering skinny boots?

    I looked at the gallery, but I'm not quite sure.

    Are there any major tells?

    It's really a matter of familiarizing yourself with the silhouette of the skinny version. From the side view, you can see a more rounded, protruding heel. Its pretty clear when directly comparing with the later boot, but that does't do you any good looking at pictures of a single figure.

    Here is a chart from Museum's entry on Batman-

    You can see it even better in the Superman entry-

    are they easy to put on? If they are, they aren't skinny.

    Those pics are great. You can really see some concave curvature at the ankle. The standard ones are much more cylindrical throughout.
