Stephen could you please let me know what's the source for this picture? Is it one of the encyclopedias or source books? Personally I think it looks really strange in a few places and not at all like the actual robes you see in the movie. For example the gloves in the movie are clearly of a reddish colour (burgundy, dark crimson, something along that line) while the gloves in that picture are a light brownish colour. Also the shoulder looks kind of strange if you ask me, like one of these 80s-style blazers my mum used to wear. But that might just be due to the fact that it seems to be worn by a rather skinny, petite person in this particular picture.

I don't think that's really a foot/boot, but rather a funky reflection of the robe itself on the top of the bottommost stair to the bacta chamber. If it was a boot it would be rather long and kind of funny-looking

But as many have pointed out, there's no real use arguing yet, not before the Blurays have been released.

I agree about the Gloves and Lid, but probably needs more reference photos.

Doesnt seem much to go on :)

Just my 2 cents worth....

I also think it needs to be taken into account that in the image from the book/magazine either the person or mannequin I believe is female and was not the intended person to wear that robe. I think the only reason the robe on the arm without the pike is bunched the way it is is because they/it does not fill out the robe. The stitch on the pike side is nice and clean looking and I think would pull even tighter if a larger male figure was inside the robe. This also makes the shoulder chest area sink in right under the helm that a male with broad shoulders would fill as seen in the movie screen shots.

So because the robe was not made for this body size its not going to sit right and I think we need to keep this in mind when using this image for the CRLs

I hate to say it but pretty sure they are wearing black rounded boots. I think you can see the tips sticking out and they have reflections on the tips and appear to be rounded

The mannequin definitely looks like a smaller frame than the robe was designed for (male or female). The right shoulder (our left) is much better filled out, and it looks like the left shoulder (our right) is buried in the robe and they tried to compensate by folding at the shoulder seam. If this were the only picture, I would say the right (our left) shoulder should be the way the robe is filled out as it's more consistent with the way they look in the actual scenes and the stills.

The pike length is definitely easy to reference on this one, extends just beyond the top of the helmet when held at the lower hand grip. Of the two guards, both had it just slightly surpass the helmet in length.

I agree with Lucious.

But I don't think we will get much more info now that the Rogue One hype is almost gone...

That said, I think like Greg mentioned, the tip seems to shine as a round black boot. I don't think the boots are red at all. And just saying 'red' is a little vague. I would like to point that IMO the ROTJ boots are not red, at least not the same bright red as the outer robe. In this picture you can see how the boot is partially iluminated and its color is closer to the inner robes, than the bright red of the outer robe. So maybe they are dark red suede...

...So in that order of thought, I think the Rogue One boots are either black, or the same wine colored leather as the gloves are. To me that makes more sense. What do you think?

Now, talking about the sash. I found this clip of ROTJ where the sash is quite visible. And it looks like the center stripe is more like 1/3 of the width of the sash, and not strictly 1 inch, and so the center stripe is not narrower than the edges. If the sash is 3" [7.6cm], then yes it's 1" [2.5cm] , but if it is 4" [10cm] it should be 1-1/3" or 1-3/8" [3.4cm]. Do you agree?

(Please note the white lines are exactly the same length)
