How did you find the fit for the men's size? Did they run small or large compared to your regular shoe size?
I hope this is not too late, we took a group diving in Utila for two weeks and just returned.Great Place!
I find, and my customers have found the reef walker slippers to be on the small size, for example if you wear a 9.5 go for the 10. Otherwise they arr comfortable' durable' and dry really fast., we wear them everywhere in the tropics and even put our fins on over them. Also if you are a full foot fin fan (like me) the reef walker fits into most Bcd pockets to wear in and out of the water.
Hope this helps

Sorry for the delay in responding. As far as the fit is concerned, my fiance's size is 7.5, but he also wears size 8 at times, and they only run in whole sizes so I ordered size 8. They fit just right hence I would guess they tend to run a wee bit smaller.
Sizes, at least mine, ran true. These were pretty slippery on wet rocks and don't have much sole to them. About what you would expect for >$10.....
I don't recall how I determined. I believe I ordered my size and had no problem.
I had to exchange mine twice before I got a size that I could wear. For me they ran very small & I had to get an extra large for a comfotable fit. My regular shoe size is 10W (US) .
After wearing them once I had to glue the sole back on to the upper, and then after wearing them a few times the top layer of cloth pealed of the removable inner soles. I'm the sensitive type that can't even stand the feeling of a lint ball in my shoe so I couldn't tolerate this. They are almost worth what you pay for them, but recently I got a pair of real water shoes made by Body Glove on sale at a TJ Max with a perfect fit for $17.95. They are very solid and built to last for a very long time. If I didn't find these I would even buy the watershoes that L.L Bean sells for about $45 with free shipping too,
THE SIZES OF YOUR SHOES ARE VERY SIMILAR TO MY OWN SHOE SIZE I ORDERED 9 AND I WEAR SIZE 10 SO I HAD TO RETURN THEM BECAUSE THEY WERE TOO SMALL.
I usually wear a size 9 shoe. I ordered a size nine and they were a little large, but the tie at the back helped to make them comfortable for water walking during physical therapy.
I was familiar with metric equivalents-- I already knew I was 42mm.
They are not small or large-- but they are adjustable with drawstring so there is a wide range of fit.
Answers to questions not asked:
I love Reef Tourer-- wouldn't go near the ocean without them; worked well in adverse condition namely coral reef in Carribean. Most comfortable of all swimming shoes I tried and BEST FITTING MOST COMFORTABLE.
Leisure Pro treated me real good-- I walked in to their shop and asked for 2 pair-- they only had 1 which they handed me. They shipped the 2nd pair FREE and got them the next day.
