Most people who wear these fins, wear them for the wrong reasons. These are free diving fins and proper free diving technique involves long, full, complete kicks using the whole leg and not solely the lower half of the leg. Less frequent but more complete, whole leg, powerful kicks are what free diving fins should be used for.

If you know how to free dive, these are the fins you want. Note that they say for "experienced free divers" in the description. World champion free diver Umberto Pelizzari used a Cressi model similar to these in his 80M world record constant weight free dive back in 2001 (these were not out yet).

I've used these free diving and they are incredible, propelling me to incredible depths at a fast and steady speed. I've also used them in WARM water places like Cozumel where I know there will be strong currents. I swam 70 yards AGAINST a 1-1.5 knot current to catch up to a sea turtle and snap a picture. It came out awesome.

If you find these uncomfortable, you've likely got the wrong size. And as with ANY full foot fin, consider a fin strap, it helps with power and comfort. And if you find that they are breaking over the arch, they are too small, go a size bigger and DEFINITELY use a fin strap to keep your foot stable, transferring more power to the blade.

    Comments about Cressi Gara 3000 LD Fins, Grey:

    Been very happy with the fins. Use for scuba/spearfishing exclusively. Had for about 5 years. No issues. I wear size 11.5, regular width shoe. My fins are 10-11. They are very comfortable for me on and with diving. A little work (snug) when getting on and taking off. I always wear 2mm socks when I dive with them also. I would buy again. Would consider trying 11-12 for my next purchase, but like I said, these have worked great for me for a long time. Solid, efficient fin, and I don't worry about them coming off or pistoning on my feet. Never had a blister.

      Comments about Cressi Gara 3000 LD Fins, Grey:

      I do lots of snorkeling and free diving in cold water. This fin remains flexible in all conditions. It is much more flexible than Gara 2000. These fins can take some abuse on rocks etc and perform for years. I have used mine for about 6 years now. They are scratched up as heck, but work just as good as the first day. When in warm water I don't use any socks and I am not getting any blisters (they fit me snug)!!

      Comments about Cressi Gara 3000 LD Fins, Grey:

      Great fins. Lots of power for so flexible of a fin. A few kicks and you're down to 30ft. Comfortable foot pocket except it is a little narrow. I wouldn't recommend for a wide foot. Accomodates 5mm neoprene sock with the same size you would wear for your shoes.

      Questions about this item:

      Shopper  I wear a size 11.5 to 12 shoe/boot, so my question is what size Cresi-Sub Gara 3000 should i buy to wear in warm water NO socks?
      LeisurePro S  10/11-44/45
      Shopper  I am 16 years old and new to free diving.... i wear a size 11 mens and am still growing... do i get size 12-13 and wear socks until i grow into them or 10-11? Also, i have slightly wide feet... do i need to be concerned?
      JENNIFER T  I bought the fins in size 12-13 and I have a size 12 foot, but I still found them to be tight so I would say for you get the 12-13, and then you would still have that little room to grom.
      Shopper  Okay so i just got a size 12-13 in the mail today and they are just a bit loose... would the 10-11 be to snug? how big is that jump between the two offered sizes? id hate to order again and have the opposite problem
      LES L  You want the fin to be snug with booties you will diving with! It will help with energy transfer to the fins, very important with freedive fins! So yes
