Im a new body boarder and I got some hydro fins a couple of months ago and they give my feet awful blisters. I was looking up ways to fix it and still use them and the idea of fin sox came to mind. does any one have any suggestions on what brand or type?
Good question, I didn't specify...they're technically not booties, sold as "socks"..you can get up to 5 mil on ebodyboarding or atlanticbb...I also have doubled up w/ 3 mils mid-winter no prob and they have those at NSS or WW.
I am a size 12.5 / 13 shoe size normally and use Churchill Makapuu "large" size fins -- I just have been training with them by swimming at least once a week all year building up calluses/etc. I do sometimes use 2mm fin socks for padding (kinda like these: http://www.amazon.com/H2Odyssey-Mini...ords=fin+socks) and or a little bit of extra warmth, I was thinking of getting some thicker fin socks for winter (like 5mm or 7mm), but yeah I'm guessing with 7mm I will probably need an XL set of Makapuus
