Does the stirrup on the Pants or Gaiters go under your shoe or just under your foot?

The stirrup is there to hold the pants down when you bend your knees, so there is no possibility of exposing skin to the biting insects when you are active. It should definitely be worn under your instep, inside your shoe. The stirrup elastic is going to wear through much too fast if you are walking on it, and wearing it over your shoe is not going to offer you the same protection from the bugs – there is still the chance that bugs or ticks might crawl up inside.
