I can see Marvel instituting some sort of no-heels policy sometime in the future. Practicality rules above all. I guess it wouldn't be too bad since you can still draw the legs as looking perma-flexed when walking in flats even if it wouldn't necessarily make sense.
Everybody's a geek for something. It just depends on if you can speak the language. The other night I was at a dinner table that included a couple ladies and a gay man. They were gabbing about a pair of shoes like it was Christmas morning and a birthday all at once. They were called "laboutins" or something. I made eye contact with the only other straight guy at the table and we both just shrugged.
Ah, brands. I'm ashamed to say that I had to google "*********" to find out what that was. I was never good at being a girl.
The superhero woman probably wear nylons or something tech-wise so that their feet don't sweat in all that leather....eek.

I do recall that the actors from the X-Men films bitched that they could barely move in those leather costumes, much less pull off action scenes. More practical my ass, maybe they SHOULD have just stuck with the yellow spandex. I guess that's why Toad was such a badass, he didn't have to bother with any of that.
I love women in boots too.
Superheroine can fly, read others' minds, turn themselves into other forms, unleashed fatal fireblasts… moving quickly and agilely with leather boots is easy to them lol...
In dog days, all we need is Frost.
If Marvel really wanted characters to wear more practical costumes, they'd have them wear loose-fitting t-shirts and sweats. Right now, even Luke Cage's outfit looks impractical. I mean, look how tight his shirt is!
