Why wasn't Nero wearing his Romulan tabi boots at the Klingon Prison Planet?
 
When Nero is being interrogated by the Klingons in the deleted scene, he's not wearing his signature split toe Ninja boots. It looks like socks or something.

Why isn't Nero wearing his Romulan tabi?

He's a prisoner right? His boots have been taken for scientific study to see if they can be adapted for Klingon use?

That would explain why Klingons wear similar boots

See what happens when boots are only available from one or two retailers.....redundancy and not really any variety...

Yeah, let's break up the monopoly of Romulan boots salesman, the Bill Gates of the footwear business.

I bet that the Narada was really just a means of stealthily dumping a surplus of them onto the 23rd century.

And with the destruction of the Narada, the boots are now an endangered species.

However, once Nero freed himself and his crew, they all went back to wearing their boots again. I wonder where the Klingons stored them all?

Klingons probably use them in place of toilet paper.
