How satisfying this piece is to wear with regard to comfort, fit, material quality, etc.
I feel like my feet are shaped sort of oddly, so sock paws are perfect for me because they’re so comfortable and the insides change to fit my feet, they completely cover my feet and almost come up mid-calf on me. They are the easiest things to put on and take off, but when I’m moving about in them, they fit very well and they don’t slip off when I don’t want them to!
The quality of my sock paws is very high and I couldn’t be happier with them, I’m incredibly happy with them, and I’ve been to a few cons with them on now and they’re still in great condition! The interior of the sock paws are light purple fleece, and it’s so soft.
How satisfying this piece is to look at with regard to material quality, design, how closely it matches the concept, etc.
The markings of my sock paws are perfect for my fursona, as he’s a frankenstein dragon and all different colours, so these match his refsheet spot on. They’re made from the same fur that my partial is made from, so they match it perfectly! The fur itself is super soft and sewn very neatly, and I like that there’s a mixture of long fur at the ankle area and short fur on the foot area, it’s a nice mixture. The sock paws come with dark green fleece claws, which are well stitched and attached, and all face the right way. The shave job on my sock paws is spot on, everything is smooth and even. The sock paws come with vinyl paw pads, which are also a dark green, and go really well with the claws.

How well does everything fit together and match up?
All of the seams match up perfectly and connect cleanly, the colours and shaving are consistent and pretty much perfect with no gaps or obvious seams in the material. The sock paws are the comfiest things I’ve owned in a long time, they’re a delight to wear and I’m always looking forward to the next opportunity I get to put them on! The style of my sock paws is definitely consistent with the rest of the maker’s paws.
Overall Project Quality
Definitely exceeded expectations.
Details the interactions between the customer/reviewer and the maker of the item with regard to the buying process.
I’m pretty sure I first made contact with this maker on twitter, and then I loved their sock paws so much that I followed them on both twitter and Fur Affinity. They needed my shoe size, my fursona’s refsheet, and needed to know if the sock paws were to match an already existing fursuit (if yes, they asked for type of fur and colours).
Maker Response Time
Very quick, with minimal delays.
I was treated very well and the maker was wonderful to work with, and they treated me as a customer, so the interactions were business-like but very friendly.
Project Completion Time
I had joined a waiting list when she accepted my commission, so I was well aware that I would be waiting for my sock paws, but she made me aware that I wouldn’t be waiting very long, and it was barely two months when the maker started on them. They were put together within a week and shipped off the following week.
I would highly recommend this maker to anyone, and I absolutely plan on getting more sock paws from them in the future!
