To get shoes to follow origins you just check the Follow Origins box right? What if that doesn't work? I can't figure out what stupid thing I'm doing.
I'm just now realising the significance of where you say "until I use the body settings" - do you mean that the shoes conform properly if you bend the legs using the individual shin and thigh controls?They conform alright until I use the body settings, Legs Bend or Legs Side. Then they don't. I have the follow origins checked too.
