    I wear Viper V5 Flex fins and love them. They are light and provide much needed thrust on the east coast.I switched to them after wearing Churchill Makapuus for many years. Something went wrong with the rubber and they started falling apart so I switched. Great decision. I do wear fin socks with my fins because my ankles get those terrible ulcers from the fin rubbing against them. I've tried some others over the years and these are by far my favorite.

    Thanks for the answer. I currently have Churchill makapuus and there extremely uncomfortable. I'm positive I have the right size and I've had them for a year so I think there broken in. I just can't stand feeling like I've just worn high heels for hours when I get out of them.

    Kicks. They've got a soft foot pocket and a thin stretchy heel strap. No discomfort at all.

    You're welcome for the feedback.
    I've heard the same thing about how comfortable Kicks are. I'm really digging the Vipers though. Ditch the Makapuus. You should feel good after bodyboarding, not like you've been out in heels for hours!

    If I'm not mistaken, Redleys are back...could be wrong and not sure if quality's the same.

    Fin socks...like rashguards for dems feet.

    As far as comfort, I like my Tech 2's...heard that kicks are the shiz. The only Vipers I've tried were too big so my feet got stove up.

    Kicks are comfortable but thrust is not as good as other fins
