i AM A UK 6.5 SHOE SIZE WITHOUT A BOOT WHAT SIZE WOULD i NEED TO PUCHASE FOR A V16 WARRIOR EDITION FIN.
hi Darrack, I do realise that I need boots, but I am unsure of the usa size compared to the uk.size 7 whether I would need a x/small or small if that makes sense. Thank for your prompt reply. regards, Dominique
I Like the Oceanic Vortex V-16 fins, but I dont like wearing boots for snorkeling. Is there another fin that would be as good or better that can be worn bare foot or should I just get used to wearing boots? Thanks, Selby
Hello Selby, if you are looking for the same qualities in the fins then I would the full foot version: Oceanic Vortex V-6 Full Foot Dive Fins web link: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-21/013341/Oceanic-Vortex-V-6-Full-Foot-Fins.html. These fins you can wear bare foot or a thin pair of socks.
I take a 7.5 or a 8 wide us size. What size Vortex V-16 with spring traps should I order? I plan on using a 2 or 3 mm boot with them. thanks Bob
I like to snorkel and I have read pros and cons about split fins….Do you have any suggestions. I understand the split fin does not tire hour legs out as much.
