That's great that you don't see it as a 'problem', but - WHAT IS THE PURPOSE???

I get the feeling it was just an excuse to set up the Slit thing later on.

I considered that for a bit too, mate and knowing Miller, it probably IS that.
And being the accelerator boot, maybe it is symbolic.
Or the jacket was just lying under his feet and he needed to keep warm :D

Na mate, he didn't get that boot back from Slit, he got both those new boots from the Bulletfarmer's Ripsaw crew.
He discarded his old leather ones from the previous movies and traded them for ones he pulled off one of the Bullet boys.

Shoe references in stories are often more metaphorically aligned with theme than specifically aligned to the plot. Wearing somebody else's shoes/boots tends to represent living someone else's life. Given that Max, Nux, and Slit are at different stages on the humanity spectrum, and two are arcing toward becoming more humane, it makes sense to have them all swapping boots or even having one foot in one world and one foot in another.
