The fit of these sockpaws was solid because I provided the socks used in this project. I could feel the stitching in some parts of the sock inside so I ended up wearing some sock liners to remedy that.
The quality is well done but the durability is an issue. I was not told that I needed to wear sockpaw sandals with my pair so it never occurred to me that I would need to make my own. I wore them to Otakon 2014 and after walking around the convention for ~2 hours I could feel the fabric starting to stretch and immediately took them off.
The sockpaw itself is still in good condition and I have made myself some sandals to extend the lifetime of the pair. As far as the interior, you feel a large gap between the sock and the padding which is a tradeoff since it allows my toes to move freely but I then need to press against the inside of the padding to move around.
For the appearance, this is exactly what I asked for. It’s not easy finding the accent color of my character but the maker went to great lengths to try and find one that was close to matching. The exterior feels good to the touch and looks like great sockpaws.
OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.
Very satisfied. I ended up using my character jacket and some black sweatpants to create the ensemble and it worked very well with the sockpaws.
Very satisfied with the look of the sockpaws in reference to my character.
Very satisfied, the maker and I exchanged notes and came to a joint decision.
Very satisfied. I had two conventions that summer that I wanted to use the sockpaws and I missed out the first convention (soft deadline) but they were completed by the time the second one came around (hard deadline). These deadlines were discussed beforehand.
