    Fins that will fit Bare Elastek Boots

    I have a pair of size 10 Bare Elastek 7mm Boots and I love them. The fit is great and my feet are nice and warm in 50 degree water. However I am having trouble finding fins that will fit them as the soles are thick and the boot is wide. Can you recommend some fins and sizes that will fit these boots?

    What kind of fins are you looking for? Which ones have you tried?

    OMS Slipstreams and Turtle fins will both work. XL in the OMS ones not sure in the Turtles. I found scubapro's Twinjets to have big foot pockets but it's been a few years since I had a pair on.

    I've only used plastic blade fins so far. I've heard that people cramp up when using the rubber fins and since I'm a fairly new diver I'm sure the muscles used with rubber fins are not in shape yet. Are my only options the traditional rubber fins? If so I may just have to take the plunge.

    Force Fins will probably work.

    Thanks everyone. It seems like Force Fins and Turtle fins will work. I also found that Mares fins have bigger foot pockets and will accommodate my bare boots too. If you're looking for a traditional fin the Mares Avanti fins should work, they work for me.
