Husband loves them!
They're soft rubber, and the fit is perfect. Although I did call to see which size I should get, as women's sizes don't correspond with men's sizes.
Fit: Feels true to size
The new design does not fit well and it does not feel good in the water. I am now going to return the second pair I ordered, which was a different size. What a waste of money to pay return shipping for a pair of fins that really doesn't work. A fellow swimmer in our national group has them and really dislikes them too. The foot bed is short and does not allow enough room for the toes. The material is very hard and thus does not kick well in the water.
Bring back the old model!
I swim 6 days a week for two hours each day. I bought these fins at the beginning of the season because they are the "standard" Speedo model. They worked great for about 2 and a half months. A small crack in the rubber appeared, but I didn't think it was a big deal, so I just kept swimming with it. Long story short, the fin ripped completely where the toe sits. I exchanged them for a new pair of the same model, and the second pair did the exact same thing. The previous model was WAY better.
My grandaughter is on the swim team and the fins were perfect!! I have been pleased with the service and quality and price on everything I have purchased from SwimOutlet.

Works for Me
I use the Short Blade fins for swimming laps in a pool - my preferred form of exercise. The Speedo Zoomers I've had for many years were no longer giving me the boost I was looking for, and they'd also begun to irritate my feet. So I decided to go for a slightly larger fin, and one I could wear with swimming socks. I wear a 9 1/2 shoe so I ordered a size 10-11 in the Short Blades. With the socks on the fins fit perfectly and I'm not getting any of the irritation I'd been experiencing with the Zoomers. While the fins feel a bit heavier in the water (expected that) they do give me a stronger kick, and I've quickly adjusted to them. So, works for me.
Better than Aqua Sphere Microfins
Though I ordered my correct size, my toes hung over a bit. The fins appear well constructed so they won't split along the seams as many fins do. They have a nice feel in the water.
Fit: Feels too small
These fins seem fairly sturdy. They're pretty effective swim fins. The seamless grey portion of the fins look and feel as though they'll hold up a lot better than the Aqua Sphere Microfin HP fins which split along the seams a couple of months after wearing. My toes hang over where they should though I ordered my correct size. This makes them slightly uncomfortable when in use.
