Im looking to order these for my wife along with the Ellie Ergo boots to match. The boot will be size 6 or 7. Would she still be a SMALL in this fin with a boot vs. without a boot?
Also, do you have this gear in stock currently? We are hoping to have it in time for her OWD training in 3 weeks.

Small would be the best choice. For current stock or availability contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 800-347-2822
The X Shot and Shot FX fins are high-performance fins that incorporate new technologies and the latest materials. They take the best concepts of the Sling- Shot and HotShot fins and improve upon them. • The Power Zone, located in front of the foot pocket, where the power bands used to be, continues to evolve. What were once powerbands, are now integrated “V Boosters”, providing even more power with less effort. • A new spring strap offers a soft TPR heel pad along with Aqua Lung’s own proprietary buckles. • The foot pocket is equipped with the “Power Transmission Zone”. This anchors the foot preventing unnecessary stretching of the foot pocket on the power stroke resulting in maximum energy transmission. • The blade contains a high performance elastomer resulting in high efficiency • An elastic blade insert creates a “spoon effect” that pushes more water with each down stroke adding to efficiency. • A customized inner sole provides a grip effect. This prevents wasting power from the boot moving laterally inside. Shot FX: The Shot FX fin contains all the features of the X Shot plus the following: • The foot pocket’s design, compounds and sizing are dedicated to women’s feet resulting in greater comfort • The Shot FX has a dedicated blade that is shorter and softer than traditional fins. This makes them easier to kick.
Fin Care and Maintenance Care Before and During the Dive
Avoid standing your fins on the tips of the blades for any extended period of time. Avoid hot temperatures and hot surfaces as these can damage the fin. Avoid placing the fins in a car trunk on hot days as the temperatures inside car trunks can exceed the temperature tolerances of the fin and the blades may distort. Care After the Dive:
Rinse thoroughly with fresh water and towel dry before final storage. Storage:
Store in a cool, dry and protected place out of direct sunlight. Chemicals/Solvents:
Avoid any contact with alcohol, oil, gasoline, aerosols, or chemical solvents. Do not expose any part to aerosol spray, as some aerosol propellants attack or degrade rubber and plastic materials. Do not use any type of alcohol, solvent or petroleum based substances to clean or lubricate any part. Do not store your equipment near any oil, gasoline, chemicals, or solvents.
