The bystander's observation of Higgin's boots, and the fact their quality marks Higgins as a gentleman, signifies that people from the upper social strata were believed to be safe and honorable. Note.... "boots" do not make a gentleman, behavior defines a gentleman. None-the-less, in the eyes of the bystander, his preconceived notion talls him that Higgins is an alright guy.
