Hello,

I have a fin question. I wear a 13 EE or EEE. My LDS said I probably don't even need fins! :smilie39: I just got a pair of L-XL Tusa Tri-Ex fins. They fit OK over my boots. Not sure exactly how I am supposed to gauge fit without using them for a more extended period. I am a little concerned that after I swim with them for a while, they might pinch my foot. Does anyone with big feet have experience with this? Are there fins that are better for big feet?

I have the XL Atomic split fin. The 2000 model.

I have used them a LOT, but recently i was with a class doing a checkout and was standing on the stand in the water and they began to really hurt. Not sure but I think it was just too tight and arent meant to stand up in. Never really had an issue.

You can look at spring straps as well.

PS: I wear a size 11 or 12 4E

Scubapro Jets are great for big feet but your LDS is right. With feet that size you don't need fins.
