Default Why did the Romulans have split-toe boots?

What was the function of split-toe boots the Romulans wore? Klingons have split toe boots too.

Any ideas?

I don't think Romulans care about the Vulcan salute. They are Romulans, not Vulcans.

You mean Nero could have taken Pike's tongue with his toes before inserting the slug?

I don't think Pike would appreciate that, especially since Nero was wading in sewage water.
