"Dear ELFWOOD friends....I invite you to a little discussion. You might recognize me. I am, in fact, the manliest warrior in ELFWOOD, and I'm positive I didn't have to just tell you that. I'd like to begin by mentioning that I dress for comfort in battle, and not fashion. And even though my charming good looks are quite often useful, I am usually too busy fighting in the manliest way possible to worry about the simple fanservice appeal of my wardrobe. Hence, my footwear, which I have decided upon, after the conclusion of a lot of thought and many sleepless and footwear-less nights. So, ELFWOOD, rest assured, I lead by manly example. And men, when you must charge out fearlessly into battle, dispense fashion and do not listen to your mom when she's all worried that you're practically naked. As a manly warrior, it is your duty to not only make sure you are as comfortable as possible, but also to make sure you provide as little fanservice as possible!! Remember, gentlemen out there: Each one of you is a manly warrior. You are not a sex object and should not be treated like one!"
