These thin but tuff little socks work great! I think they are better than booty. They don’t hold water so you are not sloshing around on the boat between dives. They are a nice foot saver on land, dock or boat too. We went to some hot springs and I forgot my flip flops. I had these in my bag so I wore them. My husband was “ouch ouching” around on the aggregate walk ways and I was fine, it was a little hard on them but they still look good and no holes. For the price I wish I had got more than one pair. They fit nice, there is no heal so they fit any size foot. Dry fast and easy to pack.

I took the advice of the other reviewers and got one size smaller than the chart recommends and it fit perfectly. I am a 5’9” 180lb athletic woman with a little extra pudgy around the middle. I got the large. The skin looks good, feels good, easy to get on. I was surprised by the spine padding but in a good way. I wore it under a 3 mil wet suit on vacation in Costa Rica (Pacific Beach) and it made it very easy to take a damp wet suit off and on for potty breaks and such. I wear it under my 6mil dry suit here in Puget Sound with some socks and I am toasty warm and I could take 2lbs off my lead when using this skin instead of my polar fleece one-piece. This is a lot more comfortable to wear in between dives when the weather is nice too. Sand and stuff doesn’t stick to it like polar fleece and it breathes. It dries fast if it gets a little wet from my hair between dives. Love it!
