This has been discussed before. Many feel the way you do. If it comes to combat, I would like to see things stick with more appropriate aesthetics. But for shear artwork? Could care less. I also feel the need for people to express their own freedom in character design. Just needs to have boot options included.

....now if the orbital station that has been talked about had a club like any of the Mass Effect games, that would be f'ing awesome. I'd be all for the craziness in costume designs....and music!

What the thing that long before women started to where heels only men wear heels. This because heels helped you stay stable while riding on horse back and made it harder you to be knocked off the horse while in combat. This idea is still around to this day with those special shoes for bicycles and motorcycles that lock your feet in place giving you more control over the bike. Going by how people are locked into the omniframe's biofeedback system, having people (both men and women) have heels might be a good idea.

Also when you look at games like Warframe a good number of the frames have high heels, but is a mix of both male frames and female frames. Personally I like to point out the fact that Volt Prime has high heels and yet he is one of the games fastest runners. lol

I like the aesthetics of the female chracters in heels. Remember there's a reason women wear heels, because it makes them more attractive by giving them a posture that presents their female figure more prominently.
I personally prefer attractive female characters in video games. In fact this will make Em8er stand out, since women in western video games in recent years don't present themselves as feminine and attractive and certainly don't wear heels.
As for the realism argument, Em8er is certainly not supposed to be realistic in any way.

Saint Seiya popori !


I have to admit in reality heels can be a painful fashion but they may look good :D
In the game there could be a nice mix of foot wear, i like boots particularly but then it depends how it will match with the whole look too.

Here I like this one it is not so super high heel but just enough to give a smexy futuristic look.

So im a man, so forgive me if im not correct in the terms here, but pointy stabby heels deffo dont belong in a "combat game" regardless of how tall or short they are.
(There is a reason to why Jack chops of Joan`s heels in Romancing the Stone..)

Wedged heels and raised soles deffo works, might not be comfy but atleast you dont have to mind where you plant your feet.


HOWEVER, this prolly dont mean squat cuz when the shooting begins and the kaiju blood is splattering all over us, i doubt we are going to be watching the feet of the female avatars that are around us.....

Being that our character will operate an omniframe by arm/leg manipulation, then it makes sense that each player can determine if heels or flats are best suited for the operation of their individual frame(s). Same if they would want to go bare handed or wear gloves. Etc. Etc.

Hey, I was not joking when months ago I asked Mark could my pilot just run around in a bath robe and fight like that. As if he was just taking a shower when the kaiju attack and just ran out to join the fight without putting on cloths first. It just seems more realistic to me. As not everyone is going to have time to get all dressed before the fighting starts. Some pilots are going to be running around half dressed or in their sleeping wear while fighting.

I can imagine there could be variations of the G-suit some more casual than others and some night time G-suit etc
