All the boots just look terrible with the skirt. And Orion's can't even wear sandals with it. They're stuck with the boot choices as well. So, what's the point?
The point is for Cryptic to make good money with lockboxes... Until people figured out that it cost them 50-100 $ to buy a skirt that they need to wear ugly boots with - they have paid 50-100 $ to Cryptic.
Maybe. Maybe it's just one of their usual costume tech problems. They constantly have problems with the KDF.
I have the feeling the game suffers from a lot of "legacy" issues with roots sometime during the release time when the game needed to be rushed to release... Shortcuts done for release that bite them in the back even years later...
