Rating: Like the boot - but Womens sizes off
Reviewer: Elizabeth A.  -  View all my reviews
I like the boot just fine for the price, but I was planning to buy my womens shoe size - 2 to be the equivalent of the mens sizing. However, the write-up had Mens 5/Womens 6 so I went with their sizing. Too big - should have gone with a mens 4 to be equivalent to a womens 6.

Rating: Great boots!
Reviewer: Donald Atkinson  -  View all my reviews
I have never use fins that needed boots before but these are very comfortable and my feet never get cold in them. I dive in a natural spring and the water is usually 68 any time of year. My feet are always able to walk as soon as I get out of the water even after an hour. Also, the bottoms are grippy and comfortable. As soon as my feet are planted with the soul touching the ground, even on slippery slimy rocks I have great traction. The only down side is that if you walk across dirt while they are wet you will scoop up dirt in between the tread because they grip so well. Nothing that dipping your feet back in the water and kicking them around cant cure. Just wearing these boots is enough to make your fins comfortable for at least an hour. No complaints at all. I would tell a friend to buy these. They come in a mesh back that you can used on your dives to collect things or they just make drying them easy.

Rating: Well made warm water boots
Reviewer: Mike Fischman  -  View all my reviews
These boots are well made and look like theyll stand up to light wear/boat diving. Since they are 3.5mm soft sole boots dont expect to get a lot of wear out of them if you are beach diving, especially if the beach is rocky. If youll be doing that type of diving I would suggest a more rugged boot. I wanted something light for occasional boat diving so these fit the bill nicely. I have extra wide feet and they fit pretty well. My toes extend out the sides a little but not too much so they fit good enough.

Rating: Soft sole boots- great for pools
Reviewer: Myra Jackson  -  View all my reviews
i have had much difficulty with pool therapy thanks to the blisters that i receive on the bottoms of my feet. i tried socks, but wore through too many pairs- a costly endeavor. these soft sole boots were perfect! they stayed on my feet better than the department store water footwear, and lasted much longer- as i have a foot situation that causes foot drag. these are so well made, are not detroyed by chemicals in the pools, and are tighter fitting to offer security from tripping in the pool. thanks for a great product. i highly recommend them!

Rating: Booties are OK
Reviewer: Alfred DeMatteo  -  View all my reviews
I found these booties to be a bit loose when I used them. I wear a size 9 and the boots were supposed to be sized for a 9 but they were not the type of snug fit I was hoping for. The boot construction is is very good though.
