Default RE: Probably unrealistic


Actual boots? How would you get the skin stiff enough for support?
You would use a thicker portion of the hide or add an internal stiffener or lining . Hides are not a uniform thickness all over . Rawhide can be used for the sole . Chrome tanned leather , which is what footwear is made from , is generally stiffer than leather tanned for gloves or clothing due to the tanning process and it's ingredients .

Yeah, how can boots be made of skin? They are usally
mabe of bull hide or hide of some sort.
Skin and hide are the same thing .
