Vastly superior to the standard reproduction puttees (2020-10-28)
The difference in quality between these and the regular puttee repros are unreal. especially when you've put them side by side Definitely worth spending close to double what I did on the regular long puttees (also sold on this site).

The wool is sturdy and soft, not coarse and scratchy like the cheaper kind. The wool is definitely thicker too, giving them a better structure and warmth when wrapped. Andmost importantly of all--on these you can actually see the weave of the puttee, giving them enough stretch to be wound around the leg normally without needing to fold them into a herringbone pattern. Which to my knowledge, makes these Fox style puttees unique compared to all other repros I've seen on the market.

As far as negatives go, just like the other reviews have said, the Fox label came sewn in backwards and on the wrong side of the puttees, and the pins were located in the middle instead of on the edges. These weren't a big deal to me as I do not reenact and I bought these for practical use instead.

I did, however, elect to move the pins to the correct locations, and on this subject I must caution people to be careful when handling the pins. The metal the pins are made of do not seem to be very sturdy, and one of the arms on the "right" tab broke off the first time I unfolded it. It still has one arm to keep it secure to the puttee and it probably would've broken eventually anyway with how fragile that arm was, but of course having both intact would have been preferable. The left tab was fine and is quite secure after putting it in the right spot.

The Best Repro Puttees Out There (2020-08-27)
Gonna keep this review as detailed as possible. I have SoF Puttees and original WW1 Fox puttees to compare these with.

Pros: Puttees ACTUALLY wrap around your legs like originals do (to the shape of your leg). Fox Brass buttons make it authentic looking. Weave of puttee is closest to the original (not cut from single cloth). Also most affordable puttee that is well made. Shipping was super fast. Great for Boer War rather than WW1 imo.

Cons: Fox Brass buttons are placed incorrectly (can easily be fixed so no worries). The Fox label is purposefully backwards (could be for legal reasons, idk, but also minor inconvenience). Puttee is thicker than SoF and original puttees, but doesn't cause issue. Color in picture is true to the puttee, and it is the brightest puttee whereas the original is darker in color (this could be preference too, if you like the color then you are good)

Amazingly made puttees, best repros out there right now. Shipping is mad fast especially during these times.

great putters with a little discrepancy from picture that I dont really care for (2020-01-08)
I bought cheaper ones from amazon while cheaper weren't as good. it looked like a long piece of shamwow. although alittle bit more expensive, these are much better can actually see the weave. a little "error" I found on them is the fox label is printed backwards and the pin is is attached on the middle instead of the edge, but I dont care for these things just using for warmth. and great fast delivery.
