These are great!

Summary: I love these fins. I bought some a few months ago from a local store that smelled really horrible and fell apart at a seam right away. These have a new design that eliminates that seam and they don't smell at all. They're perfect for the pool - I have a hard time swimming usually, and these make my kicking much more effective so that I can swim laps like a 'normal person' and have fun doing it. They do the job but aren't big and bulky.
Summary: One of the best ways to improve swimming and water walking exercises. Helps to keep you afloat and strengthen your ankle and leg muscles. That little extra goes a long way to improving your overall health and stamina.
Summary: I purchased these fins because my Finis Blue Zoomers were wearing out and I didn't want to be without any training fins should the ones I owned fell apart. The Finis Yellow Zoomers Gold are much better than my blues. The surface of the rubber is much slicker which means "no blisters on my toes" from the fins. One downside is that these new Zoomers have a rather weird smell that permeates my gear bag.
Summary: Before I started swim lessons at 58 years of age, I was terrified of water. When my instructor tried to start me on long swim fins, I wasn't able to control them and I panicked in the water. Then I tried Zoomers and I loved the length, which was short enough for me to control. I bought the gold Zoomers because of their flexibility. They're the perfect length for a short, fast kick.
Summary: Finis Zoomers provide an extra dimension to your swimming routine. A little extra variety makes swimming more fun, and that's a good thing! It takes only a few minutes to get used to the fins. My favorite stroke to use them on is back stroke. It really gives a good workout. I can really feel my muscles working. I own the blue Zoomer fins, tried out red Zoomer fins in the past, and recently saw a gal with yellow Zoomer at the pool and asked her to let me try them out.
Summary: Here is a size chart for anyone thinking of buying these. This chart is directly from the Zoomers box. Size C = Men 3.5-5; Women 4.5-6 Size D = Men 5.5-7; Women 6.5-8 Size E = Men 7.5-8.5; Women 8.5-9.5 Size F = Men 9-10; Women 10-11 Size G = Men 10.5-11.5; Women 11.5-12.5 Size H = Men 12-13; Women 13-14 I have a 9 1/2 size women's foot and the E fits just fine. So for me they have been true to size and fit to what they list on the side of the box. I hope this helps.

Summary: These short fins give my kicks more power and don't stub on the bottom of the shallow pool. I have high insteps, so they took a little breaking in. I used Aquafor on the tops of my feet before putting them on and that helped the most.
