Committed: 10 Great Superhero Boots
4. Adi Granov’s Iron Man boots
Ever since I read Iron Man Extremis (by Warren Ellis with art by Granov) I’ve loved Granov’s take on Iron Man. The overall shape of this, the silhouette is like someone wearing long, boot-cut jeans over giant boots, there’s a smooth, continuous line from leg to foot. It emphasizes the jet-functionality of the boot. Granov’s perspective of the Iron Man armor is well-known because of his work designing for the movies, the benefit of this is that he’s had to decide how the armor actually accommodates a live human body which has in turn strengthened the design.
