The best thing about combat boots? No one but you will ever know you're wearing fuzzy socks during a mission.
i mean, yeah. you’d think that.
instead the reality is that if you wear fuzzy socks on a combat mission, the universe can sense your fluff and will conspire against you. so naturally the one time you wear fuzzy socks on an op will also be the one time you’re fighting paste-pot-pete (who is apparently a real guy who really does run around doing glue crimes. i hate this century and i need to have a serious talk with steve and tony about the quality of villains these days. in my day we fought literal nazi monsters. now there’s an overeager dude with a souped-up gluegun. who i am not allowed to shoot for some reason) and you’ll wind up with your combat boots glued to the middle of the road in manhattan.
and to prevent yourself from getting flattened by a taxi the hulk threw, you’ll have to jump right out of your boots, revealing your pink and yellow sparkly fuzzy socks to all the world. and the news station that just happens to be in the building you’re in front of.
and then you have to finish the fight in fuzzy socks, which of course are going to be covered in glue and bits of debris by the end.
and even though it was totally worth it to kick paste-pot-pete in the face, he did get blood on my fuzzy sock. jerk.
