To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I’m a Uk size 5.5-6. These fit perfectly, I felt an immediate difference when I put them on. Unfortunately, the pool 8 swim in doesn’t allow them, it is worth checking that out beforehand if you want to use them in the pool.
I’ll still be keeping them, for holidays. They are light compared to other fins and a comfortable fit. Walking around in them is difficult. Recommend.
So this is an update several weeks after I bought them. I use them for every swimming session (i changed pools) and they are awesome. They are light and are not big. I use them to build strength in my lower back and legs. I had a car accident in which I sustained a lot of back and lower limb damage which left me with atrophy and weakness, Ive seen a significant difference in my swimming speed. I think it's important to let you know I always warm up, so do 4 laps in my pool before putting them on. Some fins can cause cramps - I've not had this issue with doing a warmup.
Hope this review helps. Merry Christmas everyone.
I ordered these for my travels through Asia, I wanted to be autonomous and go snorkelling where and when I wanted without depending on having to rent these from somewhere. So size and weight were important, and I say that they were short enough and light enough but still great for swimming and snorkelling. Will travel with these again.
I got these when the ones I wanted weren't available - so I went with the positve reviews. I'm not really getting on with them - for me they are too heavy and too long and I have to be careful my lower back and knees don't get strained. I will be trying some much lighter, shorter ones.
The fins are size 39-40 EU (as said on the actual fin) - this is not UK size 5-6, it is UK size 6-7. Please update as it's misleading for people (I just looked at UK size and expected it to be correct as I don't know my EU size but checked when I tried them and they were too loose). Fins in great condition however and do the job nicely!
