I thought of that when I looked at your jacket too, then I realized there must be some biker gang somewhere wearing something like that. Lol

Actually, I was noticing that not all the shoes are high heels. There is a sort of combat boot, and there are runners. Maybe not available to all variations of every faction, but they are there. Got the combats myself; little extra cushioning in the heel, but otherwise good.

Even the combat boots have huge heels on them

Not that huge. I think one of my sandals has a higher heel...

Totally on-board with the OP's suggestion. Gender requirements should be removed from clothing entirely. Barring that, however, female characters should have non-sexualized and/or practical options available.

This change would take virtually no effort and would solve a rather serious issue. Given that this game is produced in Iceland, one of (if not) the most gender-equitable nations on the planet, it's rather absurd to see female characters forced into heels.

I'm outraged by the fact that the character customization screen won't let you finish without putting on a pair of pants. It's a joke and insanely unrealistic to have not even considered this massive oversight. I hate wearing pants in real life as they are uncomfortable and unnecessary and mostly only for pleasing dumb ass police officers with their stupid 'laws'.

Hey! How dare you bump into me!

You're a racist. You hate me and I know that because you bumped me. That makes you a racist and anything you say to the contrary just strengthens my assertion that you are, indeed racist.

On the subject of shoes, though, I think all women should be made to wear high heals at all times. With so many ugly women that dress like men out there we need something to allow us men to avoid the embarrasement of misidentifying women as men. If all women wore high heals and all men didn't (as in EvE) it would all be made much simpler. So really, CCP have merely solved a problem thats inherent in western society anyway.

+1 to CCP for their sensible approach to making it easy to identify the sexes.

I can't say I noticed this aspect of EVE as you described it.

Good catch on noticing this. I am horrified to think I could be ogling a guy by mistake.

And here I was admiring her for her bumps till now... dear dear....

CCP art team needs to pull their head out their ass and introduce some non high heels for female characters to wear. I'm supposed to be a spaceship captain. I need actual practical shoes. Male character's get them..


Why do spaceship captains need practical shoes when they spend thier whole time on ship suspended naked in a pod of amniotic fluid? Clothes are only for socialising and displaying wealth. Sure it is stupid female pod pilots in eve must wear high heels but practicality in work as a pod pilot has little to do with it.

I would like to point out that the female character model is made with the feet in the high-heel position. What your proposing would take a lot of work especially considering there are already female shoes in the character customization that someone has obviously put effort into making them look like they're not high heeled.

There may not be any non-high heeled shoes on the nexus, but if you don't like the options in there then don't buy anything.

If this had been put forward as a simple request for more options I'd have no issue with it. But you had to make it a political statement, so here's a rubix cube...

I'd put it this way: high technology combined with highly engineered high heels made them fun to wear.
