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 haven't tried them in water yet but they look good and sturdy. They are much lighter than the longer fins that I am used to and will fit easily into my suitcase. The reason for 4 stars is that they are quite narrow on the foot so they won't fit with my usual boots and I have had to order some of the lightweight bootie socks instead.
Nice looking fins, sturdy material, tried these out in the sea this year and they performed really well, only minor criticism is the fasteners appeared to occasionally slip open hence the 3 star review
I purchased the M-L size to fit my extra wide size of 8.5 - 4E. They fit comfortably without socks and worked beautiful. The adjustable strap is extremely simple and quick to adjust. The mesh bag can easily hold a mask and snorkel as well. The fins are a perfect size for travel. NOTE: they do not float, but sink very slowly. I generally put them on when I'm already in the water waste high. If you have wide, or extra wide feet, these are perfect.
Used them during 5 snorkeling days in Cuba over the holidays and they fit the luggage well, took a beating during transit and worked very well as snorkeling fins. We used the Cressi 3 mm neoprene socks with them, and the fit was excellent and comfortable for 1-2 hours of continuous use. It is the first time that I have used Cressi products, and they feel more superior to other brands such as Aqualung or US Diver.
I've previously bought 2 other pairs of fins in sizes bigger than I normally take and they either did not fit at all or were very hard to get on. I have a 4E wide food at least, and a high instep so I was pleasantly surprised that they did fit.
Absolutely love them. I have had several other brands and will only buy Cressi in the future. Have since purchased flipper socks and other Cressi products. I use tubing and swimming up the river. This item rocks.
