The idea of the costume is that is a construct generated by the ring. As it is form-fitting in other place, it sort of makes sense than it would contour to the foot like that. It's weird in a still shot, but I'm guessing that in action it will be barely noticeable.

I assume you are totally speculating that it is indeed Leben who returns, I personally don't think it will be him. My guess is Nathan's MRI comes back showing damage and he is done and a previously dismissed fighter takes his place, but not Leben.
