do i need to size up my fins to use these?
WAI C Not likely. The neoprene socks pretty thin. It's feels larger than the specified size, especially at the heel.
BESS J Anna,
I bought the medium socks: not the XS, I wear a size 8 shoe and a 7-9 fin. The fins fit fine over these socks.
BRIAN K With the 2mm socks yes you will need to size up the fins but I cannot say how much. The problem I had is the larger fin was too large without the 2mm socks. The next size smaller was to small with no socks. I needed the 2mm socks to have a good fit.
CHRISTOPHER D No need to resize at all. Mine fit just fine with my current fins.
JEFFERY S My son uses these with full foot flippers that he already had and used bear foot but wanted something on his foot. These socks are thin and fit good.
MARIO G no they fit perfect with your current ,size they are not that thick
BRIAN A I would say its likely you will have to get a little larger fin, depending on your style of fin. If you have the style with the adjustable back then these socks might be fine because you have some room to work with. However if you have closed heel fins, it will depend on how much room you have. They are great quality socks but too thick for use with my existing fins. I bought these along with the really thin socks(forgot what they were called) just to be safe and know that one would fit me. The thin ones fit fine. I free dive so I use cressi garra fins with closed heels. Hope this helps.
DANIEL L I found that you do have to adjust your fins when you use these as they do take up space. They did work well for me when I kept the fins fairly tight. Also the material has held up pretty well so far.
BRANDON H for me, these socks made my Cresi 3000s a little tight, so I use the 1mm socks instead. I would size up if you plan to use these 2mm socks.
JASON J Personally I would not size up, but it will be a little tight. Mine are tight but If I sized up my fins would be too loose without the socks and ultimately give me blisters. I use these socks with my adjustable scuba fins perfectly, but i use the really thin water socks when i use my fitted freedive fins. With those socks its easier to get my fitted fins on and off because they arent very think.
ERIC S From my personal experience these booties are very thin and fit easily in my regular fins
JOHN C I didn't. It obviously made them a bit more snug, but there's no soles to speak of, so they fit fine in my full-foot fins.
VAL B yes. most likely yes. my fins are almost tight fit, i was able to pull them over the socks, but after 15min swimming, i felt pain in both feet, so i took them off.
JOSEPH W No. I use Cressi 3000 full boots and they fit great. These socks do run big. I am a size 13 and a size 12 fits perfect.
SARAH H I wouldn't but it depends how tight your fins fit without the socks on. If they are already super tight maybe you'll need to size up but if they are a comfortable fit then I recommend keeping the same size. All rubber foot pockets loosen up and stretch with use so even if they are a little tight the first few times you use them with the socks they should be good once you get used to the new set up.
I didn't change my fin size when i got my socks and now my foot pockets on my fins are so loose i wish there was a size smaller! But that's just the type of fin I have.
