Housecarl's skills
Lydia is my follower. I have her in heavy armor, while I am in light. I have a lot more skill in light armor than heavy. Does Lydia share my skills? Should I have her in light armor like me? Also I can't figure out why she won't wear the new glass boots of fire resistance I gave her. She has no other boots to wear, and her last pair of boots were dwarven boots of fire resistance. Could it have to do with the fact that I renamed them when I enchanted them (now called "X Glass Boots of Resist Fire")?

All of the Huscarls are Heavy Infantry who specialise in heavy armour.

Good to know. Still, I wonder why she refuses to wear the glass boots. She did wear a scaled helmet once.

Her heavy armor skill probably gives her a better AR with her default than Her light armor with the glass boots. if you are intent on her wearing them try to temper them first .btw dwarven boots are heavy armor so she will be more likely to wear those over a pair of glass boots

If you have light armor smithing perks up to at least level 50, then you can craft and temper steel plate armor for followers with a preference for heavy armor.

I'm just surprised she chooses to wear no boots over flawless glass boots, especially since I have seen her wear light armor before.

I'd guess if she appears to be barefoot it's a glitch and she still 'thinks' she has her default boots on. Do you have a mod which allows you to access her full inventory, i.e. her default armour and weapons?

Nah, just vanilla. I forgot about the invisible default gear. I guess she probably isn't choosing no boots after all. I've never seen her barefoot. It just doesn't show that she is wearing footwear in her inventory. Thanks for the link, btw.
