Join us: We give you silly shoes!
Although Jack never wears them, these shoes are modeled after the pair he is presented at North's domain when he is first asked to join the Guardians. I can't possibly be the only person who laughed.

Shoe covers made to slip over my slip-on sneakers for the ultimate "hidden comfort". See, you can wear sneakers sometimes in cosplay, you just have to be sneaky.
