I'm not sure if anyone has seen this yet. There is a production scene from season 5 posted on the SL-Lost website. In this scene, it shows Richards' group of Hostiles in 1977 with both Richard and 40-year old Charles Widmore. It seems as though the production team has made a point of emphasis on the fact that the Hostiles (dressed in rags) do not wear shoes. So it got me thinking about it but I keep running into a wall.
Does anyone have any idea of the significance of the Hostiles keeping their feet bare?
