What is up with the boot soles attached to this guys arms?
Bit Protection?
Recoil padding?
What do you think?

Wrong place for a recoil pad. Maybe bite protection. Seems a bit strange, but the guy does look like some sort of Goth.

Gotta be for bites...I can think of a few other, better things to use in that capacity, (like some dedicated football/hockey/lacrosse pads), but they would work...
Methinks the costume dept is trying a bit too hard for the "post-apocalyptic" look...

I agree. They're trying way too hard with that guy. What the hell is that rifle he carries? I don't recognize it at all. That looks like one of those cheap ass Tapco stocks on it.

He lacks the leg power to do a heel stomp, do he compensates by wearing a sole on his shoulder, so that when he drives in a shoulder drop it leaves the boot print of a heel stomp.

Perhaps we should post what we can tell about the rifle
In the larger picture I saw the back side of the rifle has no markings.
It has a 4x32 Scope no brand shown.
The bipod appears to be friction only without detents.

I'd be worried about a case getting stuck when working the bolt. Not much room there because of that mount.

There isn't much room is there.
What caliber do you think it is based on the cartridges in his bandoleer.
I am guessing one of the 30 caliber variants.
How wide would you estimate the bandoleer to be?
That would give us a clue.
