May 18, 2011 • By Erika

A huge debate ensued when news of Jennifer Lawrence bagging the coveted role of Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games broke. Wasn’t she too old, too blonde, too pretty to play the gritty, underfed, war-numbed 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen?

Well, now, fired-up fans contesting the casting of the bestselling post-apocalyptic sci-fi novel has got some more fuel to feed on because the first photo of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen has finally been released:

Now tanner, leaner and with darker hair, what do you think – is Jennifer Lawrence now Katniss Everdeen?

We actually just want them to start filming already because we just can’t wait to see this movie in its entirety. And as fans of both boots AND The Hunger Games, we also can’t wait to see what boots Katniss Everdeen will wear!

This will sound trivial but for those who have read the books, they know that clothes, costumes and accessories — particularly a mockingjay pin — play a big part in the series. As for boots, Katniss has a pair that is described in the book as having supple leather that has molded to her feet, which the bow and arrow-wielding heroine wears every time she goes hunting for food in the woods.

Yes, it’s THAT kind of future that is portrayed in the book.

We imagine Katniss might have a trusty pair of boots that look like these fur-lined, suede and leather lace-up boots from The North Face:

The North Face Janey, $94.36 (Sold Out)

Or since she always hunts in the cold and in the snow, Katniss might prefer an insulated and waterproof boot like this one from Khombu:

Khombu Carma, $95.00 (Sold Out)

The story of The Hunger Games is set in a post-apocalyptic world so Katniss might also have a futuristic-looking pair like this Ariat boot we featured before:

Ariat Volant Vented Tall Back Zip, $500.00

Which pair do you think Katniss Everdeen will wear?
