After raiding a big mall and finding a WHOLE supply of fresh shoes sole lets the companions to pick ONE pair before the rest are donated to settlements. What do they pick
Hancock: Vans with a galaxy print, so what if they don’t match with the rest of his outfit? He digs the fuck out of them.
Preston: He already wears a pretty dependable pair of boots.. But, maybe something a little more comfortable?
Preston would have to look around until he finally found some adidas slippers, in which he ONLY wears when he can relax.
Danse: He immediately picks out a pair of leather construction boots, Danse tries his best to keep it in the best condition, in which he then becomes too cautious to wear them out; fearful of the acid rain damaging or Dogmeat scuffing them…
Post-apocalyptic world problems.
Codsworth: Although he absolutely loves the flawless Oxfords that he found, he knows he realistically can’t have them.
Should Sole insist on it, Codsworth would be overjoyed to keep them as a personal relic from before the bombs fell. That, and he would also fantasize about being able to wear them out on the town.
Piper: She’d love to try on an array of pairs, whether it be sneakers or heels - just for the hell of it.
It would take about two hours of Piper asking Sole’s opinion on different shoes, to her goofily posing in front of a mirror with them..
Even if she never made up her mind, it’s the most fun she’s had in a while.
Cait: She thinks they are a bit much, but regardless, she chooses some knee-high converse. Although it’s a bitch to put on, Cait still thinks it’s worth the shite.
Strong: Freakishly huge shoes, anyone..? Say even if there were a pair his size, Strong would hate the feeling of having his toes restricted like that.
Dogmeat: He’d be given an undesirable pair to chew on, but what happens if he’s presented with dog booties?!
Dogmeat subconsciously feels humiliated and insulted as he’s awkwardly walking around Sanctuary.
For the first time, Dogmeat disliked that.
X6-88: Black Yeezy shoes. X6 thinks they look sleek, which they are, but that doesn’t even explain half of why they’re superior next to any other pairs in that supply.
Though will he say that out loud? Probably not, “because the shoes speak for themselves” he says with a heel turn.
Deacon: Green flip flops. Although it makes the Railroad seem less professional, he becomes inseparable with his flip flops.
Glory is the first to finally say that they’re annoying as hell, in which he flip-flops away in retaliation.
Curie: One pair..? Although she completely understands settlers need them more than she would with several pairs, Curie would be torn between a pair of Uggs and black, one inch, closed toed heels.
MacCready: At first, MacCready didn’t particularly care, because they’re just shoes, right? That is until he laid his eyes on the “coolest” pair he’s ever seen.
Also, he believes that they make him look taller too.
Nick: Maybe he’d pick out some classic Derbys, just to spoil himself a little bit.
Old Longfellow: He’s not too keen on finding a neat pair, but as soon as he sees some Wellington boots, he takes his pick.
Porter Gage: He too, would like slippers. Just for the convenience honestly but they’ve proven unreliable when he tried to outrun a feral ghoul, resulting in him tripping on the damn thing and landing on his face.
He basically had to spray and pray when he got a hold of his gun.
Ada: She finds a handful of pairs that light up pretty interesting, even if some of them are for children.
Of course she refuses to keep any, having no real use for them.
