Overall, I found that these fins worked as they were supposed to and they fit my foot really well. I decided to make a short video because I found it fun to play around with. The shipping was great because it was nicely packaged and it even came with a small bag! I was very surprised. These fins not only look great, but they also feel great too. Hope this helps!
These fins are perfect for our swim spa....I get a really great workout and with some webbed gloves, I get a lot better workout. Would recommend using their sizing list rather than the drop-down size box for better accuracy.
This is a tricky design because the opening for the toes actually comes in on both sides and rubs the skin on my toes. I had blood on one big toe and lots of irritation on the other. I decided to cut the front (near toes) straight across with a box cutter and now I can swim without irritation to my toes. I suppose feet come in thin - average - and fat. Mine are thin. Maybe someone with "fatter" feet wouldn't have this problem. The fins work for me now, but I don't understand why the maker would have the front section turn inward the way they do. I could certainly not wear a larger size though
I've been a recreational swimmer for decades, but recently I've decided to enhance my skill by learning bilateral breathing. Breathing on both sides of your body while you are swimming creates smooth, even strokes; gives you better balance and develops uniform muscles. These fins will help me learn this technique. I wear a male US size 10 shoe and purchased size L fins, They fit very well and are comfortable.
I bought these fins for pool practice on freestyle and dolphin kicks since I had problem with my legs sinking. These fins are short enough to allow near normal kicking feel and they fixed my flute kicks. I feel more on how my feet positioned and they also help me to swim faster. They are very helpful for my swimming practice.
I swim every day about 3,500 yards. Some of my sets involve fins. I bought these fins thinking they would be ok for my practices. I find these fins to be too stiff. In addition, I had to purchase a set of neoprene socks to avoid getting my feet skin pilled off from the rub on the edges of the fins (toes and ankles). I used to wear TYR but those, even though very comfortable, tore more than once a year on the edge on top of my big toes.
The first time I wore these, they rubbed such hot spots on the tops of my feet that I couldn't wear fins (or even shoes that touched that area) for a week. I ordered neoprene swim socks and they helped but I still had the start of hot spots on the tops of my feet and on my big toes. They feel like the fit is good. There's no slop in the fit and I barely got them on over the swim socks. Weird thing is, I can't tell it's happening until I take them off and then the pool water burns like crazy on those spots. It's a real bummer since they're affordable and otherwise perform exactly as I hoped. With the swim socks I can get about 30 minutes of wear without causing discomfort.
