Post No Boots!

Is there anywhere where a girl can get a nice pair of shoes??? I'm tired of these clunky old boots they keep trying to foist off on us. They may be all right for the guys, and okay if you're going off into one of those grottos, but I'd like to wear something refined around town. So far, I'm going barefoot!

Ladies, arise! Demand the inclusion of a good shoe shop![/COLOR]

Yes as Davy said not the best color maybe stick to the default for posts though I do understand with Rose as your name a nice red would add a personal touch to your posts.

OT: I must admit I hadn't thought about shoes and what you lady pirates had to wear but not sure what you would have besides boots. I guess sandles or such ? You could send big D a e mail and ask for them maybe they could put them out with the next couple of months theme clothes. Wouldn't think it would be to hard and if you Rose up (ha ha just playing) and told em how ya feel along with some others who feel the same they might listen. Wouldn't hold my breath but they might. It's Disney after all, they make dreams come true.

I personally don't care because
1) Almost the whole time I've played the game through past years, I've gone barefoot and find it fun.
-&-
2) I wear regular brown boots that I've looted, nicely enough.

So ya. I don't understand why pirates need good clothes. You're just gonna be battling in them anyways :P

I see your point and it would be nice to get some new kinds of clothes overall, including shoes. As for me though, I'm a pirate and I'm going to dress like one even if it means wearing those clunky, mud-encrusted, sweaty boots.

It would be nice to have something other than tall boots or short boots. Regular shoes, flats, sandals, etc would be a nice addition.

That, plus trying to find shoes in Amazon size, is one of the reasons the Amazon is barefoot fairly often. Besides, its nice to feel my toes in the surf and boots are slippery on a wet ship deck.

I don't get why someone would complain about the female boots.
Y'all have more types than the males do: Ankle, Regular, and Tall.
Males: Short, (Thick)/Regular.

The guys shuold be complaining.

Also, I say we should ALL complain about the only pants being highwaters... I want my pants to my ankles! D:<

As a Pirate re-enactor and historian, I can tell you boots are a "movie/TV" thing anyway..even for men. Most pirates went barefoot on ship, unless they were dressing up to go ashore into town...then they wore shoes and stockings. There was no use for boots at sea...The salt water would eat away at them, they promoted foot fungus in wet conditions, and were made for people who walked in urine and dung infested streets at the time...not sailors. The same reason for wearing "slops" instead of pants....On a ship, your feet, ankles, and lower leg ARE going to be constantly wet...There was no use for boots and long pants, and they created problems at sea..... Just a historic point of view.

P.S.....Another historic fact...The soles of shoes and boots in the time were flat leather, and had very little traction....Don't think I'd want to be in either on any wet or somewhat slick surface... Might end up in the drink!

I agree entirely. Only officers wore footwear on a ship. When you're climbing ratlines or walking out along a yardarm 140 feet above the deck, you want to be barefoot.

They did spread sand around the deck during a fight. It stops you from slipping in the blood. How's that for your historic perspective.

I wear boots when I'm in the grottos, but I sure would like to get some nice pumps for in town.

Crimson Rose.

Try doing the Barbossa Outfit shop on Padres. It is in the little run-down area by the entrance to Beckett's Quarry, I think her name starts with an "A". It requires going to Tormenta, so I got some help. I could only do one or two damage at a time! But, it is worth it. I have no idea what the lady wear is, but you get a nice collection of rare clothes. Hope this helps!

I`m on that quest now, thanks to your advice. We`ll see what comes of it.

I had to get a high-level friend to help me with the corrupted stumps. I told him I was on a quest for some really nice shoes.

No reaction. Guys don`t get it.

Still on that quest. I've got to kill some more corrupt stumps on Outcast Isle. I tried it by myself and got knocked flat in short order. Anyone want to help me with this? I should be on this afternoon between 18:00 to 20:00 GMT (1:00 PM to 3:00 PM Eastern Standard Time) or 23:00 to 3:00 GMT (6:00 PM to 10:00 PM EST).
