Deep Outdoors Universal Buckle-Less Fin Strap
Rating: Deep-Outdoors-Universal-Buckle-Less-Fin-Strap Great idea 10/14/2009

Wonderful concept. Just a piece of rubber with a lot of holes in it. But it should be able to serve as an emergency fin strap for almost any fin. Havent had to use it yet, but glad to have it.

Deep Outdoors Universal Buckle-Less Fin Strap
Rating: Deep-Outdoors-Universal-Buckle-Less-Fin-Strap The Only Fin for Big Feet 08/19/2009

I purchased this fin because it is the only one that I could find by any manufacturer that came in a full foot version and would fit my size 14 feet. The first time I used them, I got the usual rubbing and almost blisters since they hit my feet in different spots than my other fins. A week later, on the second time, they were quite comfortable. The listing says they are for the pool and not for Scuba. This is probably correct advice. They are much shorter than normal Scuba fins and dont provide the force you are probably use to getting. One other thing...I was using them and trying to teach a student how to self remove a leg cramp. The fins are so short that I wasnt able to reach the tips. Perhaps someone more flexible than I wouldnt have that problem. All in all, exactly what I wanted for the pool. I still use my heel strap fins for ocean diving.
