I wear a size 6 women's shoe. Should I get a small or extra small fin? Also, these are recommended for scuba diving right?
DIRK P I have purchased four (4) pairs of these fins for my family members, and we have used them all over the Caribbean and in Florida - for scuba diving. They are a fantastic fin. Well balanced, flexible, comfortable and functional. I am a scuba instructor and I suggest them to all my students. As for sizing, you should use the size chart on the LeisurePro website, or call one of there great staff members for help.
MIKE K Depending on the booties you are wearing. Got these for my wife a size 6 also and uses a 7mm bootie for cold water diving and I got the size small. The fit was good. I also added spring straps and made the fit secure as well as easy to got on and off.
CAROLYN D I purchased the XS and I wear a size 6 shoe. The XS is perfect with a 3mm short bootie, and yes I use the fins for diving. I really do like them.
PETER B Hi - I got these fins three years ago and love them. They have held up really well and I scrape along the bottom a lot diving for lobsters. I have done 65 dives in the last three years.
I have a size 10 men's boot and use the M-L size. It's only a guess, but I think you do want the extra small. Be sure you use a boot, these won't work barefoot.
And, yes, these are recommended for scuba diving.
TAMMY W For a size 6, get a Small to allow for the booties.
RICHARD S I would suggest getting a size small as you are going to be wearing a bootie which will take up room in the fin.
These are great fins for scuba diving. The blade does much of the work and I find them easy to dive. I used to dive Mares Quatro fins and was really happy with them but decided to leave them in the Philippines so I didn't have to take so much equipment back and forth from the US when I travel. I bought the Cressi fins as a replacement and they are the only fins I dive in the US.
The fin does much of the work for you and I think you will be happily surprised at how easy they are to dive and how much work the fin does for you as opposed to you kicking all the time.
JOHN A I gave these fin's away after a month. Get Apollo Bio Fin's. They are much more efficient and comfortable. I have about 1000 dives and they are the best.
Hope this helps.
