I wear US 11.5 MEN shoes - which size of these fins should I order. Some reviewers complained that they feel whole size bigger? Thanks!
They do run large. I have a US 11-12 foot and use the US 9 1/2-10 1/2 fins. That's the size I use in a pool. If I were to use them where I might have to walk on a beach or reef I would buy them one size large so I could walk with aquasocks and then put the fins over them. These are great fins- they last along time, are priced well, and have the most comfortable foot pocket I've come across. Hope this was in time to help.
Leisure Pro has asked me to answer your question based on my experience with the Mares Avanti HP Full Foot Fins. Firstly, I love my fins. Secondly, I find that they do run a bit big. I wear an 8 or 8.5 shoe size and my fins are size 6-7. They fit well. I work at a dive shop and I fit people in fins all the time. When guests tell me their shoe size, I always look at their foot as well. If you have a narrow foot I would go a size smaller than your shoe size, but if you have a wide foot I would stick with your normal size. I hope this is helpful to you.

I wear a mens 10 1/2 shoe usa. I use a fin size 6 1/2- 7 1/2 from this manufacturer. I play Underwater Hockey twice a week. I wish to have the fin very snug. They will still slide off from time to time. Purchase smaller we always tell new players or have them try some elses first. Good luck with your choice
Sorry, I purchased these as a gift for a friend. I am unsure of how they would fit on an 11.5.
They were true to size for me but I would suggest trying them beforehand if possible.
The reason being that they are designed for use with diving boots.
I wear size 11 shoes and 6.5-7.5 HP fins. However, I like my fins tight, so I would recommend the 8-9 size fins for you.
They fit my husband and nineteen year old nephew fine...for my fourteen year old nephew...he wears them with neoprene booties on inside. Your narrow female foot might require this too.
They are awesome flippers overall.
Order the 44-45 91/2-101/2 size unless your foot is very wide then the 46-47 11-12. We use these fins daily for our customers here in Hawaii and for most people with your size foot the 11-12 are too big.
Mine definitely feel a little big but good with boots. Id say never hurts in these to err on the side of the smaller size.
