Committed: 10 Great Superhero Boots
2. Mike McMahon’s JUDGE DREDD ribbed boots
The crazy thing about these boots is that ribbed toe cap. Well, I say that, but the scale and the bright green is pretty insane, but that ribbed toe cap is what always gets me. It reminds me of a classic Adidas Superstar (or shell toe) sneaker. I used to have calf-high green boots, they weren’t as clunky as these but they had just as much impact. There’s something fantastically stompy and exaggerated about them in conjunction with those huge knee pads that makes the Judge’s costume that much more grounded. He’s one of the skinniest men in comic books, with the largest boots in contrast with his little legs. It’s a great silhouette.
