Maybe his feet are just paws! Or his feet actually end at the bottom of the trouser, and they rest on the top of the "shoe", held in place with sandal-like straps. Like I said, funky fashion style... xD

I think it's just rushed art.

My guess is that foxes are typically quadrupeds (use four legs). If you make a fox a bipedal (two legs) without naturally modifying the back legs, mechanical augmentation would likely required on these legs for them to support the weight of the rest of the body for an extended duration.

This probably applies to the original Star Fox (SNES) only, as everyone seems to have more human proportions (in terms of feet, anyway) by SF64.

I agree! Though Four-eyed Vulpine also has a good point, but for practical purposes, I say that it is just bad/rushed art.

That's true too.

Sorry, I tend to have a scientific mindset about everything, including fiction. ^_^;

That's cool.

I tend to do that too.

I always found those little metal feet kinda creepy on the SNES Star Fox character furry models. I wondered, were those just the bases to hold up the furry models? Were the feet never supposed to be in the photos, were the photos originally only meant to be from the waist up? Maybe so.

Well, let's test this intention by doing a tally of shots on the box and instruction manual!

Fox Full-body/Upper-only: 4/3
Falco Full-body/Upper-only: 2/3
Slippy Full-body/Upper-only: 2/3
Peppy Full-body/Upper-only: 2/3

TOTAL Full-body/Upper-only: 10/12

I would think that if they weren't intended to be shown full-body, the proportion would be a lot less than nearly half-and-half, but meh.

It's too bad they won't make real-life furry models of the characters now!
*really wants a life-size Wolf model*

Oh crap, you're right! I never actually tallied that before. Thanks. Yeah, that would be awesome if they did make life size furry models of the Star Fox Team, nice thought on that! I want a life sized Krystal model. :D
