    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    They will actually miss them. It is a very traditional form of footwear, like the article says, almost Medieval in conception. They cannot have been that bad, given the Germans copied them.

    I wear them at our LH events. Always a good talking point with the public. They come in winter and summer weight material.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I heard cotton for summer and a flannel like cloth for winter!....

    Nice article with an interview with a German Vet:

    How to Wear Fusslappen / der Erste Zug

    The flannel ones are quite nice.

    A 'bad' sign of ones historical interest, when one is so emerged in it, that one follows a thread about 'Fusslappen'

    Thanks to both of you for the info - interesting.
