About Mares Wave Full Foot Fins

The overall design of the Wave FF is strongly influenced by the development of the blade. Based on Mares Channel Thrust Technology, it envelopes a large volume of water in the central area, which is then propelled out generating thrust with high efficiency. The three material constructions allowed Mares to select the best possible TPR for the foot pocket and thus obtain the highest comfort, while

applying materials with the best elastic properties for the blade aiming at reaching the highest performance.

The Blade of the Wave Full Foot Fins is manufactured from Techno-Polymers and has a blade length of 14 17" (36 cm). The Channel Thrust Technology incorporates soft longitudinal inserts that allow a controlled deformation of the fin blade while kicking. This channel shape moves a greater amount of water resulting in more thrust for the same effort. The Mares Wave FF Fins weigh 1.32 lbs (0.60 kg) and come in 6 Sizes: 4.5/5, 6/7, 7.5/8, 8.5/9, 10.5/11.5 and 12/13 (EUR: 36/37, 38/39, 40/41, 42/43, 44/45 and 46/47) Fins are available Black, Blue and Yellow Colors.

The Mares Wave Full Foot Fins is commonly used for Snorkeling, Travel and more. The Mares Wave Full Foot Fins is most used by customers who consider themselves to be a Advanced, Casual/ Recreational among others. The Mares Wave Full Foot Fins is popular because customers like the following qualities of the Mares Wave Full Foot Fins: Comfortable, Lightweight.

Purchased two pair and love them

I did a ton of research before buying these. Based several days of research I determined the Mares Wave is one of the best fins you can buy under $100. We just did a field test and they lived up to the hype. We purchased two pair, one for me, and one for my wife and the sizing is spot on. They fit like a glove when used with Akona 2mm dive socks. I wear these primarily for snorkeling, but they would work just fine for diving. The are very comfortable (with dive socks) and provide surprising...

Spend extra $20, upgrade to Superchannel

I own Mares Superchannels, which are great fins, so I had high expectations when I ordered the new Waves. Unfortunately the Wave fins do not posses the same pedigree as their older sibling. These fins are stiff and slow. I was comparing them to the Superchannels side by side in a pool and right away they felt a lot slower in the water and my calves started hurting. I had to exert a lot more energy to swim a lap. I was relived to switch back to my old fins. The bottom line is this: in the...

Mares Wave fins review

By

18 dives during dive trip on the Sun Dancer III in Belize. Fins worked fine, slightly better than my 4 year old fins. I use the full foot fins with neopreme socks.

Not all that, but a decent compact fin

By

Bought these as a travel fin, mostly because the price was extremely reasonable, and they are relatively small- and I tend to be more comfortable in non-rental gear. On the one trip I used them (11 dives) I had few complaints, but that may be because they fit my style...I'm not a person who believes in covering as much territory as possibly on a tank of air...I tend to like the back of the pack position, and branch off when I see something interesting...so for the pro's, they are a good value and get you there...for the cons, both of my other sets of fins get me their easier and more quickly....all in all a decent value...

These fins are stiff and slow. I was comparing them to the Superchannels side by side in a pool and right away they felt a lot slower in the water and my calves started hurting. I had to exert a lot more energy to swim a lap. I was relived to switch back to my old fins. The bottom line is this: in the water the Superchannels "disappear", it is as if they become a natural extension of your foot. With the Wave fins you always feel them dragging behind you making you uncomfortable. The end result is that you fatigue much quicker, which in a real diving situation can result in a nasty cramp. Mares did NOT do a good job with the Waves. I would recommend spending a little more and upgrading to something better.

It's not the best fins from Mares

By

I used to swim in Oceanic X-caribe fins, and I do about 40-50 laps twice a week in a swimming pool. But after 5 years of perfect workout with Oceanic I had to get a new pair, to my greatest disapointment Oceanic discontinued that model. I've chosen this fins as a substitution, but I have to admit it's not even close. These fins are way less comfortable, more bulky. Firstly I felt clumsy in them, in a while I found a balance, as well as a way how to handle a fact that they are extremely wide in a heal. When I swim in a lake Tahoe I even had to wear a pair of socks to avoid a possibility to lose them in waves. It's really average fins. Not the best choice for pro and advanced snorkeling and diving.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Michelle E  I know I wear a 4/5 in these but not sure what that translates into - would it be 36?
SUSAN S  I would guess that a 44/5 would translate to a 34 - but that is just a guess.
DAVID A  I wear a womens 5.5/6 size shoe. The small wave 36/37 works great for me. Favorite fin ever, and I have had many! Proportioned very well for a petite person.
JOHN B  these tend to run a little large. I wear an 11 and ordered a 9/10. They are a little tight with neoprene socks but a larger size would be too big
Jorge I  Jorge: My shoe size is 10/10.5 (US), to which corresponds fin size 42 or 44? .... thank you very much
JOHN B  sizing on these fins is difficult to judge. my size is 11 and I tried a 42 and it was too small, then tried the 44 and it was way too big. I don't reco these fins due to strange sizing.
Jorge I  John thanks for the details, you're right are a rare size.
WONGCALEB W  I think that's not much different. I personally suggest if you are not sure about two sizes, buy the bigger one, because you can buy a pair of diving socks to fill the space if the feet pocket is too big.
WONGCALEB W  Super comfort feet picket! But when go underwater, the power seems a little bit insufficient!
Jorge I  Wongcaleb: thank you very much for your answer ...This might happen because they are very flexible .... I have Avantitre Mares fins have very good propulsion in the water but the foot is not very comfortable, a bit narrow, and sometimes gives me some cramping in the foot, I think the Wave fins are more comfortable
KEN H  Jorge, I wear the same US shoe size as you, my normal European size is 44; however the fins are sized large so I found the 42-43/ US 8-9 is the correct size.
Jorge I  KEN H...Thank you very much for your answer, very thoughtful of you, I think the same as you that a 42/43 US size 8/9 will be fine.
LEE ANNE M  i recently bought these fins. I wear a mens shoe size 8 and fit perfectly in the Mares Wave FF EU size 40/41. Hope that helps.
Jorge I  LEE ANNE Thank you very much for your answer...all information is useful
sandi s  I wear a size 7 1/2 to 8 in womens US size. What size do I convert to in EU size?
RUSSELL L  38 to 38.5 but order the size smaller as they run slightly big.
DAWN D  I wear a women's size 9.5 and have a narrow foot. I bought the Mares fin in a 40, and I am very happy with the fit. Probably the size 38 would be your size. There are many conversion charts out there. I found these fins true to size.
