Why Batwoman was always going to wear boots on the new CW show to be more realistic. 🦇
When #Batwoman comes to the #CW this fall don't expect to see her fighting crime in heels.
Showrunner Caroline Dries told it was important for them to make sure Gotham's new hero was wearing practical footwear. "We were like, 'Realistically, we need it to not have a heel,'" Dries told about Batwoman's suit. "It was really important for all of us," Dries added. "There's a little bit of a heel, maybe an inch that's a flat heel. I guess you'd still call that a heel, but it's not a stiletto or something. It's more like a biker boot."
On "Batwoman," the shoes are also more reflective of Kane's edgy style.
Dries told INSIDER it's not the only shoe that was designed for Ruby Rose's heroine. "They made [Rose] one version, and I think they have Nike soles inside for some cushion because the stunt people are always flying around and landing really hard," said Dries. "What's cool about the shoe, I don't know if we ever feature it, but there's a little boot at the bottom of the foot, like the rubber of it," she added.
When it came to designing the rest of the iconic batsuit for a woman, Dries said they tweaked it aesthetically so Rose had better mobility in her arms and neck. "The cowl has always been tricky because Ruby has to go in and get her head molded and then fitted," said Dries. "She can't hear out of the cowl. She can see out of the cowl. She can't turn her head."
"I think [it's] all the problems that Christian Bale [probably] endured over three movies. It's just never quite perfect. We're just slowly but surely tweaking here and there."
