will this fin work with bare feet or will I need boots?
MEI-SHAN W It can work with bare feet.
JAMES W it will work if you like bare feet. I used to use my fins bare footed, I started getting blisters, so I purchased the socks/boot and have eliminated that problem.
SANDRA S I personally thinks its up to you; you can use both however what I like to do is instead of wearing a full boot I like to wear neoprene socks in the fins. I feel that is the best confort level because it allows you foot to feel nice and snug in the fin.
Best of Luck!
JAMES C Bare feet are fine, especially in warm water. We used them entering the water from both a boat and the beach and in each case they worked great. When entering from the beach you do get some sand initially, but kick your feet and the sand is gone.
SHERMAN C No need for boots with these fins, they are very comfortable with bare feet and great fins as well. My wife and I wear them all the time and really love them.
TONY T These are designed for bare feet. I doubt they would work with boots.
RODNEY T Yes it is designed to be worn with just your bare feet. It is important to get a good fit with these types of flippers since they aren't adjustable. The adjustable strap on flippers are the kind you need boots for.
DAVID B Just got back from a week snorkeling in Roatan, used them bear footed everyday. Worked great, wonderful fins.
LISA K The fins are comfortable enough to be worn with bare feet. But you can wear thme with boots. It all depends on the fit & how it feels on your feet.
EDWARD O No boot required. Boots should only be necessary for open heel fins
J.P. R Bare feet, good snug fit.
LYNELLE M I purchased the Viper full foot fins for my husband for Christmas. He only uses them with bare feet and really enjoys them.
CONNIE L My husband and I bought these for a trip to Bimini. We did not need boots. We were with ten other persons who also had these exact Fins and none of them needed boots. These Fins were very comfortable in bare feet. We were very satisfied with the performance as well.
MARK S My girlfriend just wears them with her bare feet. They are great fins by the way!
