I have bad case of bunions and live in Kailua Kona. Need to wear water shoes due to rocky shores. I normally wear 9.5 2e shoes: what size fins do you recommend?
What other fin do you recommend? Genesis coronado and mares avanti both seem ok in pics - what do you think??
by the way, looking for a set for my wife also, and we only snorkel.

Will these fins fit over the Akona 3.5mm Deluxe Heavy Duty Molded Sole Low Top Dive Boots?

Hi Melanie, The Akona Caicos are a snorkel pool use only fin. I would look towards the split fin as they are a very soft kick. They are less leg stress and fatigue.
The new Caicos fin has an extended sole plate, which adds thrust and relieves strain on your foot. Simple and reliable strap adjustment system. Contoured foot pocket for maximum comfort. Fins can be used with or without booties. High grade polypropylene material. The directional channel, in the middle of the fin, increases propulsion efficiency.
Vent spaces, on each side of the fin, releases water not involved with thrust.
