    Churchill Slashers are the ticket. Never had a blister or chafe. You can wear them all day and they have good propulsion

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.
    the same thing has happened to my Churchill Makapuus after only 3 years. They were good while they lasted though.

    This is a well known problem with new production Makapuus, luckily for those who like them there are any number of other new fins with basically identical shape. If I ever need new fins I would be tempted by these:

    for that old school green Churchill look. Those were the best.

    I always wear fin socks when I'm not wearing boots, or else my feet get torn to pieces. Some people just tough it out and get calluses, but my feet get so ripped up and I don't mind rocking the fin socks.

    Yeah, I found out it odd when the rubber cracked and began breaking. I think it was around the time they switched to floating fins. I agree, they were good while they lasted.
