"This fin dives like a dream. It's easy on the legs, highly maneuverable and provides effortless propulsion. It also has outstanding power vs. stress rates and easy-to-maintain speed. The fin is deceptive; it requires so little effort it sometimes does not seem like its doing much, but in fact its moving you right along." -Scuba Lab

My wife wears a size 7.5 womens shoe, which size of these fins for women should we order?
Generally speaking, with full foot fins you want to shoot for the middle of a sizing range as much as you can. In this case your wife is right at a size cut. If it was a definite that this was the fin, of chose I'd choose the smaller size in this particular fin.
Do i have to wear dive socks/boots? And I am a size 8.5 in womens running shoes, so which size fin would be best?
Hello Jess, if you want to wear boots with these fins you will have to go up in sizes for the boots. These fins are a closed foot fin so wearing a thin pair of socks or your bare feet is what these are designed for. As for the correct size you would be. You are going to go by your tennis shoe size. You are size men7-8/women8-9. If you would like to place an order or have any other questions please feel free to give us a call at 1.800.347.2822.
One more question, I am a teenager whois just getting started scuba diving (only done 3 dives). I have semi muscluar legs (pretty decent for my age). WOuld these fins be a smart purchase or is there another brand or fin type that you recommend?
These fins should work fine. If you want a fin with more power but a little harder to kick take a look at the Aqualung Express. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-21/114322/Aqua-Lung-Express-Full-Foot-Dive-Fins.html
Small and light weight, yet extremely efficient, the Velocity Full Foot Fins feature our unique Power Enhancing Vents (PEV's) for reduced leg stress and increased velocity. During the fin stroke, water flow is directed through the PEV's. 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 reduce lateral movement of the fin (wasted energy), increasing the efficiency of the kick.
Made from advanced composite materials for ideal flex and memory, with an ergonomically designed foot pocket and weighing in at only 2.5 lbs (1.13 kg) per pair, the Velocity Full Foot fins are the ideal SCUBA or snorkeling fin for the traveler. Try a pair for yourself and find out what we mean by 'designed for velocity'.

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.
