I am interested in the Aeris Mako fins. I have an 8 1/2 shoe size with triple E width. Will the size Small 7-9 fit me with cold water boots on, or will I need a larger size for the width of my foot? Thanks for you help in advance.
I love to snorkel but I have size 15 foot and its no fund with an ill fitting fin. What will work for me?
Hello Jim, since you have a size 15 foot. You are limited to certain fins. The two fins that I think would work best for you would be the http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-20/014384/Aeris-Mako-Adjustable-Strap-Dive-Fins.html, or the http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-20/012322/ScubaPro-Jet-Adjustable-Strap-Dive-Fins.html. Between the two I like the ScubaPro fin. It is just an all-round better fin. If you are looking for a more travel fin then I would go with Aeris it is a lighter fin. If you have any other questions please feel free to give us a call at 1.800.347.2822.
Hi, I am a size 9.5 US. Seems that this is right in between Small and Regular...any advice on which to purchase?
Hello Erik, I would go with a different fin that will fit in your size range. If you go with either size they will be either to small or to big. If you have any other questions or would like to place an order please feel free to give us a call at 1.800.347.2822.
I am buying these fins for my Grandson, and as I put the fins in my cart an extra large strap comes up and I can not remove it. I need a small strap for him. Why cant I remove the strap that is the wrong size?? Thanks Judy
I noticed Aeris makes both full foot and open heel fins. What are some of the pros/cons of each style.Ive worn out the low end full foot pair I have (both tore where my big toe pushed against the top of the shoe.. Other than that and being loose because they were a little too big, they worked well.
I wear a size 13 shoe. What would be best for me to get Ajustable strap or full foot fins. We snokel 2 weeks a year in Grand cayman.I need to up grade my old full foot fins. thank you
Hello- I noticed these fins state boots are required. Can you explain why? Would it be uncomfortable to go without?
Hi Guys. I have a pair of these fins-great! We want a set for my mrs. She wears a water type bungee lace up bootie size 8 [ a little big], womans. Recommend what size fin please. thanks Dave
I already have the Aeris Velocity X 3 fins size XL and wear a size 11 boot. I thought the Aeris Mako would size the same but thats not the case. The Velocity X 3 XL 11-12, the Mako XL 12-15? Should I be looking at a smaller size in the Mako? This will be the first time purchasing fins I did not first try on for fit.
The manufacturers always rate their foot pocket on what they consider normal "sneaker-style" shoe sizing and recommend you purchase your fins using that sizing. If you wear a size 11 shoe, the manufacturer recommends the REG size fin in this case based off their chart.
Your equipment should enhance, not hinder the joy and exhilaration of diving.
The Mako Fin is a precision blend of ergonomics, hydrodynamics and materials technology created for ultimate comfort, efficiency and performance. The Mako blade's flexible center area creates a massive water channel by utilizing the entire surface area of the blade and foot pocket accelerating water over the blade. The engineered channels and side rails direct water flow off the tips of the fin without allowing water to 'spill' from the sides of the blade for uncompromising power and improved efficiency. A series of high performance vents reduce stress while while accelerating water over the blade.
A generous, yet streamlined foot pocket fits a wide range of boots styles while significantly reducing drag. Fins are extremely lightweight for increased performance and ease of travel, and come equipped with an easy adjust quick-release buckle fin strap assemblies. Fins are available in four sizes and come in six color choices. AERIS Mako Fins are covered by a 12-month limited warranty.

Propulsion Enhancing Vents (PEV) Fin Technology
Faster and more efficient, our PEV technology maintains comfort and control while enabling you to exert less effort, stress and strain with each stride.
During the fin stroke, water flow is directed through our exclusive Power Enhancing Vents (PEV's) and off the fin tips, creating lift and forward propulsion. This helps reduce the stress on the divers leg while accelerating water over the blade; resulting in increased velocity. Water movement through the PEV's also reduce lateral movement of the fin (wasted energy), increasing the efficiency of the klick.
