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.
Brought these mainly for the pool. I am size 8 and went for the 7/8 (41/42) size - and they fit perfectly. They are painful only on my THIGHS - which means as a training aid they are doing what they are suppose to. As a training aid, when I then take them off and use my own strength, I have found they have really improved my previous lazy kicking. The only slight negative is that they are negative buoyancy (they sink) - in the pool this won't be a problem, in the sea...well just hope I don't drop them - but not going to knock a star off just for that as these are training fins, not pucker diving fins.
Perfect fit. I'm a size 6 so ordered a size 5.5-6.5 (39/40) The rubber shoe part would allow for a larger foot (6.5 UK) as it can stretch. I think a smaller foot (5.5 UK) would struggle to keep the fin on when swimming at a fast pace, so advisable to buy a smaller size. Have used in the pool for a training session and they felt secure on my feet even when swimming hard. Fins are flexible and not rigid so fits in my swim bag. Comes in a clear plastic bag which will need to be replaced with a proper fin bag eventfully.
Cressi Light Short Swimming Fins in blue, They arrived fine but there is to much plastic with a plastic insert to keep the foot form of the fine as well as a plastic bag labelled Cressi both could be replaced with cardboard to the help reduce plastic on the environment and save the planet as these items will never be used again!! 🤔🤔 Ok to the review of the product unfortunately I have not been to use the fins in the open water, however they fit very well I'm a size 11 ordered 10-11 and they fit nice and snug, the size of the fins is a nice size not to big just perfect for swimming front crawl, colour of blue and black is very nice😁😁 !! So people I will get around to using them and try and give an update when I do so!! I cant wait!! 🏊♂️🏊♂️😎😎🏊♂️🏊♂️
Super speed! I got these as I could not afford the proper rocket or jet fins but these make my legs like a jet. My legs were pretty useless before them but with these it is now the the main limb that gives me my speed and thrust. Easy to use and great quality!
Very good - I got the same shoe size but I would get 1/2 a size smaller for swimming in the sea because of the cold but in any case they worked well - didn't hurt my toes and easy to put on and take off without sliding off when you don't want them too! The bag they came in when to Greece and back - no issues!
Really great fins, super quick in the water, easy to concentrate on arm technique with few kicks to keep you going. Small enough to fit in a bag and would be great as snorkelling fins. As training fins (for freediving) they let you concentrate on technique and really let your legs build in the right places. Cressi have made another great product.
Be aware of the sizing in the title however because it is a little confusing. I thought I was getting 6.5-7.5 when it is actually 7-8! Still five stars because they are great.
Obviously not as powerful as full sized fins, but are a great compromise when you have limited space and are all you need for some lazy snorkelling. You can get decent speed if you put a bit of effort in, and in my opinion they're just as good as the sub-standard fins that most tend to pick up on holiday.
Obviously these don't compare to proper full sized diving or snorkelling fins, but I don't know why you would compare them.
I had these on in my trip to the med, and they fit in my carry-on perfectly. All I needed, and fit as expected.
I'm almost 77 and we go to Majorca frequently and enjoy swimming in the sea. My husband always gets well ahead of me and keeps waiting for me, BUT with my super new fins I am able to swim much better and don't get left behind the same. They are not heavy and don't tire the ankles as they are not too long. I love them.
I carried these in my 40L osprey backpack for 2 months whilst travelling, they're small enough to carry without taking up space and they're sturdy, great for swimming. Just because the fin is small doesn't mean you won't swim fast. These things are great! I wont leave home without them for future trips. Great investment
