Superhero shoes!

Superheroes’ super shoes

Whether it’s flight, super-strength or invisibility, superheroes are very busy people. Saving the world and fighting crime can be overwhelming for us humble onlookers, so much so that we overlook the more everyday aspects of our heroes’ lives — like their shoes, for example.
Just like sandals were made for the beach, a superhero’s shoes are designed to withstand their far from average lives. Here, knee-high boots retailer Brantano takes a look at the footwear of our favourite heroes and villains.

Wonder Woman

She’s been fighting bad since 1941 and Diana Prince, a.k.a Wonder Woman, has become one of the world’s favourite superheroes. She’s recently been revamped for her role in the DC cinematic universe.
Wonder Woman is certainly not a wallflower; her look is defined by colour and confidence. Perfectly complementing her iconic bracers and tiara is a pair of red knee-high heeled boots. Heels you say? Surely they’re impractical? Quite — her comic book character swaps them for flat boots instead.
The world’s newest version of Wonder Woman wears armoured knee-highs with sandal straps and wedge heels.




Star Lord (Guardians of the Galaxy)

Played by Chris Pratt in the 2014 Guardians of the Galaxy film, Peter Quill, a.k.a Star Lord, and his unusual team saves the galaxy from evil supervillain Ronan. Reckon he could do that in unsuitable footwear? Think again.
His reddish brown walking shoes feature knee-high greaves and built-in rocket boosters — just what he needs to help rid the galaxy of trouble!




He’s arguably one of the world’s most famous and best-loved superheroes, with his hero get-up earning iconic status. While recent portrayals may have updated his look — and removed his signature comic-book briefs — Superman’s knee-high red boots have remained constant. Ideal for perfecting post-flight landings, kicking bad guys and running to crime scenes, it’s easy to see why he’s stuck with them.



Power Rangers

Thought we’d seen the last of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers in the 90s? They’re set to hit cinema screens again in 2017, although it seems like they’ve upgraded their footwear. The white knee-high boots of yonder have been replaced with tougher, more protective boots — is this an indicator that they’re set to get into even more trouble in their latest film venture?



Captain America

The latest Captain America, as played by Chris Evans, is a no-nonsense, patriotic iteration. To match his sheer strength and determination, the superhero wears combat boots. Tough, durable and perfect for fighting crime, they’re the perfect choice for America’s favourite good guy.






The Joker

The Joker? He doesn’t wear boots — does he? No, The Joker, as played by the late Heath Ledger, is the only character in our list who doesn’t wear knee-high boots. Instead, the villain wears a pair of gentlemanly brogues — except they’re far from sophisticated. Deceitfully, they have a knife hidden inside; perfect for capturing opponents off-guard.
