The solution: Overall presentation is an important part of showmanship. Before you pull your pants over your boots, use electric tape to tape around the top part of each boot, making the shaft smaller so you have a seamless line from the top of your pants to the bottom.

Bonus: Your boot won’t move around as much while you’re running.
