Shadow Issue | Player's Shadow only exists within small rectangular area

See the attached screenshot where the shadow does not connect with the feet. When I move the character around, I can tell the shadow is only taking up a small rectangular area. Not sure why it started doing this. It was fine until I shutdown UE and opened it the next day. I tried increasing the lightmap resolution on the floor, and then rebuilding lighting. Nothing changed.

When I equip the boots I have for my character the shadows display correctly. Strange…

Still stumped, none of the options the editor has available seem to help, I’ve since moved on to adding more content to the game. Will worry about it later I guess.

If worst comes to worst, I can add a invisible boots to the character that only projects shadows. I will cry tears of sadness if it comes to that
