i have the size 10 bare trek boots. they do not fit into either of my pairs of fins that i own. i could probably fit a size nine boot instead. i am wondering..... what is the width of the size 9 at the widest part ? i am hoping they are narrower so they will fit my fins. i don't want to buy another set of fins.
If you are trying to dive in a drysuit with fins that you dive with wetsuit boots. Drysuit requires a heavier/stiffer fin anyways. Your not going to get a drysuit boot inside a wetsuit dive fin.
You will have to get fins!!! Dry suit boots are bigger and in most cases there is no way you can use the same fins you use to dive wet to dive dry. In scuba your never stop spending. I mean, investing.
I checked my boots and I also have a size 10...sorry I'm no help but I would imagine the width of the 9 is only a quarter of an inch less in width.
You'll need to get wide heavy drysuit fins. Reg. wetsuit fins just won't fit or have the stiffness to move a bulky drysuit anyways. Just part of the program with a drysuit.
Sorry Richard. I have size USA 11 ( UK 10 ). Dont know about the size 9. Had to buy a new pair of fins. Wont risk having cramps on my toes wearing a tighter boot, besides I'll have room for thicker socks if it gets too cold. Yeah buying more gear sucks but you wont regret it when it come to a comfortable dive.
Richard, I have both Trek boots in sizes 9 and 10. I measured at the widest part of the shoe on both of them. The 9's are 4.25 inches and the 10's are 4.5 inches. I hope this helps you.
You'll need to call/email Bare customer support for this one. LP asked me to answer you, but I wear a size 12 ;-)
