Silly developers, only women take notice on the feet.
Take at look at this for example, Tali could look like this and most would still do it. I suppose
*snip*
I don't really believe they would have this much cybernetic enhancement, like no feet/lower legs. It just wouldn't really mix with what is there, but it could be possible either way. It just appears that there is more flesh along the legs than it would be a robotic exoskeleton, especially that narrow. but opinions will vary through all people.

I think the reason for the shin armor is to avoid having the suit damaged due to fall, trips krogan stepping on you etc.
i know the other reasons for it but it could still be a possibility as a way that they added to stand longer. all options are plausible.

for also a brief moment I also looked at the metal rings around her neck and the thickness of her neck. At first I would assume that the rings could be used to support her head more seeing as the neck is very slim and her head is wearing a metal helmet and a thick cloth hood. I would assume that it is heavy, I about dropped this idea when i remembered that Kal'Reegar doesn't have those rings. But then i found that every female has them. Female quarian necks are very slim. The male's necks appear to be much thicker and closer to their shoulders. so those can also have a dual purpose.

They didn't always have the suits though. It wouldn't make sense for a species to evolve that couldn't stand properly and couldn't support their own heads.

Maybe quarians are like those tribes of people who use metal rings to stretch their necks :ermm:

This is exactly what I thought when I first saw how long her neck was.

Seriously, I had a little glitch with trying to play as her and her neck is like three or so inches taller than FemShep's.

It would be a bit odd for them to wear neck extenders when they are already dangerously off balance....

This is what I'm thinking. Seems odd that they would include an ancient form of 'beautifying' in their modern suits.

I'm inclined to agree with this.

I can't stop looking at the neck.
Engineer’s Journal October 27th, 1969

Scout carcass in alley this morning, shovel marks on burst stomach. This map is afraid of me. I have seen its true face. The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of crits and when the drains finally scab over, all the noobs will drown. The accumulated filth of all their Backburners and Force-A-Natures will foam up about their waists and all the Heavies and Medics will look up and shout "Save us!"... and I'll aim down and whisper: "Nope."

Just seems to me like she's looking back at you saying, "Hey, come check this out! The Citadel is adorable from this distance!"

Tali is the only thing in the scene that matters so :P

Also, it must be pretty cool for her to visit the citadel, with most quarians not allowed in the area.

I've seen stories dealing with Tali going to the Citadel and C-SEC giving her shit only to get their asses handed to them by Shepard. Fun times.

just a thought about the necks since i noticed it on all females. them just having long necks is understandable too as is most theories. I was simply pointing out that observation. And they might not need the rings if they weren't wearing the helmet. they could have fragile necks but not worthless necks. at least the females. biologically the females could have been the ones to stay back while the males gathered the food. Long necks could be a sign for them to look over tall grasses and other things like that. so they protect the young by keeping watch while the more toned neck males risked it more. Eventually they could have developed the rings and worn them so the females could be equated to the males in hunting.

Now it is used to keep the helmet and their hoods up, or at least help with it. But eventually their muscle mass would grow to account for it, but they keep it anyways for decoration. Never really know in that matter. :)
