I was attempting to make a Hero Forge character today and came up with a question. I was making a Tabaxi and it wouldn't let me put shoes on because of how their model's feet are. Now that may just be a restraint on the site, but I was wondering if there was any RAW precedent for the more animal-like creatures wearing shoes or boots. Like I imagine it would be hard for a Kenku to wear any sort of shoes because of the bird-like feet and how a Tabaxi's foot is shaped.
In the case of magic items, say the Boots of Speed, the DMG (pg 140-141) has this tidbit:
In most cases, a magic item that's meant to be worn can fit a creature regardless of size or build. Many magic garments are made to be easily adjustable, or they magically adjust themselves to the wearer.
Rare exceptions exist. If the story suggests a good reason for an item to fit only creatures of a certain size or shape, you can rule that it doesn't adjust. For example, armor made by the drow might fit elves only. Dwarves might make items usable only by dwarf-sized and dwarf-shaped characters. When a nonhumanoid tries to wear an item, use your discretion as to whether the item functions as intended. A ring placed on a tentacle might work, but a yuan-ti with a snakelike tail instead of legs can't wear boots.
So my questions are, RAW, can the more animal races wear shoes/boots, and/or can they wear magic shoes/boots?
