Hi Kimberly,
Each brand sizes differently. For example, for the Sporti Floating Swim Fins (Color) you might be the size M 3-5/W 5-7, but we suggest you measure your foot and compare it to the measurement of the foot pocket length which is 9". You can copy and paste the following link in your browser to take you directly to this item:

Then you can click on "View Sizing Chart" right above the size selection. I hope this helps!

On the Sporti Training Swim Fins (Color) [Product Code 23088], she might be a size Y 11-1 which has a foot pocket length of 8.2". We suggest you measure her foot and compare it to the foot pocket length shown on the sizing chart. You may copy and paste the following link in your browser to take you directly to this item:

I have bad knees and a bad hip. Can I use fins to help with backstroke kick without making them worse?

Hi,
It's best to stay away from fins since it's possible it will only worsen the pain. If you must purchase fins, I would suggest the short fins. The FINIS Zoomers Gold Swim Fins would be a great option. These fins will provide resistance but not as much as the long fins meaning it will cause less strain!

Hi, My Daughter is 6 years 8 months old and she is been swimming since 2 yrs (6 days a week). Do you advice training fins at this age? Some people say that it might affect her ankle.

If you suggest that its ok to use fins, please let me know the size (her foot size is 19.5 cms) and also let me know from where I can buy. I am from India and living in Bangalore.

Hi Girish,
We do advise training fins at this age. I suggest the Bettertimes Floating Swim Fins (product code 1264). She would be a size Y 11-1. I'm not familiar with any website that will ship to Bangalore, please try searching online for sites that will ship there. I hope this helps!

I need to order long fins for my daughter for swim team . She is 5 years old - wears a size 11 -youth z what is the best find for her please - also which jr kickboard is best

Hi Pilar B,
The Sporti Floating Swim Fins (Color) would be a great option. Since her size is offered in two size brackets, we recommend choosing the higher size. Her size would be Y 11-1 Orange/Blue. If the fin fits a little too big, we suggest purchasing fin socks (we currently are not offering fin socks in this size on our site). I recommend the Speedo Jr. Team Kickboard. It features the underside finger groove making easier to grip. I hope this helps!

Hi
I am a competitive swimmer that swims with my team six days a week. I am looking for a training fin that is good for mostly sprints and kicking. Any suggestions?
Thanks

Hi Christina,
Your best option will be the short fins. For example, the FINIS Zoomers Gold Swim Fins. These fins will increase endurance as they are meant for faster kicks. We also offer the Arena Powerfin Pro Swim Fins. These fins have the open heel design which provides more ankle flexibility and are made from 100% silicone so tends to last longer. I hope this helps!

Hello, I'm a beginner swimmer. I have the technique (sort of), but my feet remain flat instead of pointing, so sometimes, I don't make any real progress trying to move. I have Neuropathy in my feet, so my toes cramp when I point them. I take Potassium to try to prevent this, but the cramps persists. I think a type of fin would assist me with movement in the water. Since I want to swim for recreation only, I don't mind depending on them when I get in the water. What do you think?

Hi Karen,
Please check out the Cressi Light Swim Fins. These fins are considered short fins and are very light. Since they are very light, it will reduce cramps compared to longer blade fins. I think these will be a great choice. I hope this helps!

Hi, Can u give me some advice about size flipper for snorkeling, I wish to know my shoes size is 6-7 N yg husband size is 7-8 So what is suitable size should i buy the fin flipper if i wore the warm diving snoerkling sock?

Hi Izzah,
Here are some suggestions for snorkeling fins:

Cressi Clio Fins, Your size would be "Male 4/5; Female 6/7" and your husband would be "Male 7/8; Female 8/9." The snorkeling socks are normally recommended for the warmth and to give you a better fit on your fins if they are a little too big. I hope this helps!

Hi Denise,
I'd recommend the Sporti Floating Swim Fins. These are not going to be very light, but also not too heavy. These fins allow you to focus on proper kicking form. Your size would be a M 5-7, W 7-9. I hope this helps!

Hi Katelynn,
Generally, the following items are needed: a one piece swimsuit, swim fins, goggles, mesh bag or backpack. For a one piece swimsuit, check out the Sporti Solid Wide Strap Swimsuit. For the fins, I suggest the Bettertimes Floating Swim Fins in size 5 to 7 Yellow/Blue or the Sporti Floating Swim Fins (Color) M 3-5, W 5-7 (Yellow/Blue) as these are great for training. For goggles, the Speedo Vanquisher 2.0 Goggle. Lastly, the Sporti Equipment Mesh Bag or Speedo Medium 25L Teamster Backpack to hold all your items. If you have further questions, feel free to reach us anytime!

I am looking at the sporti training swim fins. I wear a size 11 in womens. I don't know if I should get the 9-11 (grey/black) or 11-13 (black/blue). Should fins be a little big or should I go with the smaller size?

Hi Megan,
I would suggest going with the 9-11. If you do go with the 11-13 and you find they are a bit big, you can always pair it with the Sporti Neoprene Swim Socks. Please let us know if you have any questions. Have a great day!

My 13 year old daughter has long, narrow feet. She currently wears Zoggs training fins in size US 8 - 9 but these are getting too small and are rubbing the side of her toes. We have tried the next size up in both this brand and Eyeline but they are too wide for her and she would not be able keep them on in the water even if she had fin socks. Do you have any advice on fins for long narrow feet please?

Hi Jane
Unfortunately, we do not have any swim fins with a narrow foot bed. We usually suggest wearing a neoprene swim sock to fill in for the extra space. Please see the link below which provides full reviews of each fin. I hope you find fins that will work out. Please let us know if you have any questions. Have a great day!
