How satisfied are you with how the hands and feet fit? How is the quality and durability? What is the interior like?

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.

Appearance Satisfaction
Please describe how satisfied you are with how your fursuit pieces look from the outside.

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.

OVERALL VISUAL SATISFACTION
