I agree. If there was damage to the stockings, we wouldn't necessarily see it.Mamma Peach wrote: ↑Tue Nov 20, 2018 11:04 amAs to the stockings... in all fairness the part of the stockings that would probably take the most damage and dirt (since she wasn't crawling about on her knees, and these don't look like flimsy nylons) are on the bottoms of the feet, which you can't see, and they do look dirty around the toes.
I had to dig because my memory is damaged, but Mugi wore boots when she first arrived with Junpei .
She'd lost them in her floof . She's been shown without the boots since she jumped out of them. From that point until landing in the river, she'd been tied up and not walking. I'm okay with a short hike to a train station not reducing the stockings to tatters.
Miho has been barefoot since the hospital. She's put a lot more mileage on hers. I think her heart hurts more than her feet.
Gma Ninja appears to have hardy stockings, too.  To be fair, the only example of Ninja footwear I found was  which I think implies their "stockings" are actually Jika-tabi
I performed this "research" because I love re-reading the comics and enjoy discovering details Piro put in.
