X-POSITION: Phoenix, Upstarts & More Tear Up Bowers & Sims' "X-Men '92"
3. Darwyn Cooke’s CATWOMAN ankle boots
Over the years I’ve enjoyed all the incarnations of Catwoman, but Cooke gave her the most covetable costume. This is definitely the first time I’d seen Catwoman in practical, sturdy shoes she could work in. There’s still a heel, enough to give the foot support if she’s running fast, and that sole has serious grip to it, which probably comes in very handy with all the cat-burgling. The crazy thing about Cooke is that he’s still using his sassy, 1950’s style, but her shoes are completely contemporary and they sweep the costume out of the realm of fetish and into a more utilitarian style.
