While in WWE, Miro initially wrestled barefoot, but after a match with Ryback, he started wearing boots. Miro said the following at the Pittsburgh Comic Con when he was asked why he began wearing them:
“I tore my ankle. I had a match with Ryback and he gave me a back body drop outside the ring and as soon as I landed — I landed fine, but I was 315 pounds and my ankle just snapped, and all the ligaments, it tore everything around and ever since, I said, ‘No more.’ I put some shoes on. I loved wrestling barefoot. I was a huge fan of Umaga and always looked up to him. That was my tribute to him.”
