Rating: Avanti HP full foot fins
Reviewer: Steven LeCheminant  -  View all my reviews
Great looking product. Was surprised to see that they are a little too big. Perfect when I use a bootie. Will be using then when I snorkel in Maui. I have a size 12 shoe size and the smaller size would have been too small.

Questions and Answers for Mares Avanti HP Full Foot Fins:


  • Mike:

    Looking for a full foot fin for snorkeling in St. John. Considering your Mares Avanti. Would that be a good choice? What size should I order for going barefoot? I where a mens size 10 shoe. Thanks!

    Greg  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    If your foot is size 10, than get a size 9.5 - 10.5. I would suggest a diving sock as well. Sometimes sand can cause problems with your foot rubbing on the fin pocket.

  • Barbara:

    Is the toe area open or closed on the mares avanti hp full foot ? Product 410303

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Barbara, this is a open toe fin.

  • Stephanie:

    Is the flipper size the same as shoe size?

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Order according to your shoe size, if you are in between sizes go down to the next closest size. Snug is better than loose.

  • Kayla:

    Hello, I am female and wear size 11. What size category do you suggest for me?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    9.5 - 10.5

Anatomical foot pocket
• High performance minimum exertion
• The easiest to kick fin on the market

Channel Thrust: Soft longitudinal inserts allow a controlled deformation of the fin blade while kicking. This channel shape moves a greater amount of water resulting in more thrust for the same effort. Mares design is inspired by marine mammals.

Latest development in Channel Thrust is the Superchannel. The blade is designed with a large flexible central Superchannel propelling water-flow more effi ciently down the fin blade instead of letting it spill over the sides for optimal performance and minimal diver effort. The limiting factors in traditional open heel foot pockets are their weight and the “parachute effect”. When finning, water gets into the space between the bootie and the foot pocket, creating drag like the air in a parachute.

The perforations prevent this and have the additional benefit of making the foot pocket very soft and flexible. Furthermore, the suction effect which can make doffing of the fins cumbersome, is now forever a thing of the past.

Full Foot Fin Pockets: The full foot fin pocket was designed in consultation with specialized orthopedic institutes to provide optimal comfort and achieve maximum efficiency in the fin stroke. The unique positioning system for the stiff section and the soft section of the sole, makes the fin easy to put on and take off, and also provides for optimum transfer of power to the blade without sacrificing yield or risking excessive stress on the foot, which could cause cramping.
