  • 12/22/2008 Pretty Good Fins for the Price

    3 Review stars By John V.

    Our son uses these fins in practice about four times a week. They are solid and durable, and they are well worth the price. Our son has size 10 feet, and the 9-11 are just a little tight on the toes. He got some blisters that turned into callouses from these fins, but now that he's got calloused toes, they're working fine.

  • 4/7/2021 Great product but discount was not applied

    3 Review stars By Laurie

    The product arrived as expected. And was good to use. I would give more stars but the discount was not applied and no one my call nor email so I guess they sell that’s it.

  • 12/26/2017 Still Very Tight For the Size

    3 Review stars By Javier

    This is my second flippers I have purchased from a different maker, and I used comments regarding size which they are off. These flippers are very very snug, and I should of have purchased the next size flipper. I am a 8 1/2, and I purchase 7-9 flipper. Need to go up next size flipper. I had purchase another pair, which I tore from the back off by the heal trying to push up.

    I am still using them, but which I would got a little bigger size.

    They run true to size. Great for just swimming but not for speed.

  • 5/31/2012 Good product

    3 Review stars By Niels N.

    Good quality. Exactly what I wanted BUT sizing is a problem: I'm a size 12 1/2 male and stepped up one size when ordering. Too small! While I can get them on and they are comfortable when on, I'd probably try two sizes up next time. Sizing remains a perpetual mystery.

  • 7/18/2010 These changed sizing

    3 Review stars By savaden

    I bought the same color and size marking as I had done previously of this brand and from SwimOutlet. It appears that the mfr has changed the sizing and now these are larger and fit loosely. Consequently, I would recommend to ignore the "buy one size up" recommendation, and buy your size. It is very frustrating trying to get the right size fins online. I wear an 8 1/2 to 9 size shoe.

  • 7/5/2010 Toe box is narrow

    3 Review stars By Jeffrey S.

    I was able to trim a bit away in the toe area and they're working fine. These are very bouyant and want to float your feet to the surface, so you work a bit extra to strengthen your kick and keep them underwater. Some might prefer a more neutral feel in the water though.

  • 2/4/2010 Flotaing fins

    3 Review stars By Roger

    The quality is good but he sizes are indeed small for American men in my oppinion. I can wear them with some discomfort. These are the largest size you offer. Thank you

  • 10/5/2009 Way to big!

    3 Review stars By Shah Z.

    I wear men’s 10.5 so I ordered one size up (size 11-13) as suggested by the size chart..OMG...Bigfoot could fit in these things!!....I assume fin size 9-11 will be too small for me...but dont know for sure....on the fence as far as that goes...I would recommend BetterTimes has a size 10-12 for people like me....Fins look great. I think they would be great in the water if they fit.

  • 6/29/2009 Too big

    3 Review stars By Jennifer M.

    I wear a size 8 shoe. The size 7-9 fins fall right off in the water. Waiting for the next size down to come in the mail to see if they are any better. They are nice fins though.

  • 5/20/2009 miss sized

    3 Review stars By robin d.

    I wear a women's size 10 shoe and my toes hung out of the toe holes by at least an inch. Definately a small running fin. Other than that they appear to be a good quality fin.

  • 4/18/2009 Runs very small

    3 Review stars By jb32146

    I wear a womens 10.5 so the ones up to an 11 should have fit fine. My toes hang out of the tops of them about 1/2 an inch. Make sure you order up if you are even close to the end of the size range. Otherwise they do the things fins are supposed to do.

  • 4/7/2009 Good fins for the money!

    3 Review stars By Stephanie M.

    Had to replace my daughter's old fins because she had outgrown them. I went by the size listed as women's sizes, but when we got them, they were too big. Fortunatley, she will grow into them! I bought another pair a size smaller until then.

  • 3/25/2009 good product, difficult sizing

    3 Review stars By Sarita

    These fins are great for snorkeling. Comfortable and durable. Easy to get on and off. Both my husband and 8 year old daughter love them. I gave them 3 stars because the sizing doesn't work for everyone, Unfortunately, I have women's size 11 feet and the 9-11 size was way too small, 11-13 was way too big.

  • 12/31/2008 Shipped fins differs from older Bettertimes Fins

    3 Review stars By Patrick S.

    The fins I received are not the same as the older Bettertimes fins I had been using for the last few years: 1. Company name has changed to Tritan 2. Newer fins are a larger fit than the my older fins: newer fins almost slip off on turns even though apparently identical in size to my older fins. (Older fins were a secure, comfortable fit.) 3. My older fins' rubber seems slightly stiffer, more substantial (years of use may possibly be a factor) Would like to exchange for next smaller size, but return/exchange policy says returns must be in "unused condition". Does one use fit into the "unused condition" category??
