Power your way to new levels of water-filled fun with the NRS Swim Fins. Wear them over wetshoes, wetsocks or your bare feet when you're river boarding, snorkeling or swimming for exercise.
  • The soft toe cup is comfortable on a bare or wetsock clad foot.
  • The web is stiff enough to transmit the full power of your kick to the water, while still having some flex for walking comfort.
  • The heel strap stretches nicely for a secure fit.
  • If you will be wearing these fins with wetsocks or a thin wetshoe, consider ordering one size larger than you normally wear. If you are wearing thick wetshoes or boots, consider ordering two sizes larger than what you would normally wear.

      Bare feet maybe medium. With booties you need a large/xl

      A:

      Med
      My feet are 13-14 and the xxl is actually almost loose but perfect for
      swimming pool. Not sure med will fit but expect the other sizes are slid
      out.
      Good luck

      You should get XXL size

      A:

      Walt, the Medium is definitely too small for you. The XXL may work just fine when you're wearing a water shoe.

      A:

      I would think that neither would work for you, the XXL would be too big and I am guessing that the medium would be too small

      A:

      Unfortunately the Med will be too small, and the XXL are going to be way
      too big. If I were you I'd go with the XXL's and get some booties to fill
      in the empty space. Which you it still may be too big, your ideal size
      would be L/XL.

      A:

      Squeeze into the M if no socks or booties, XXL are too big unless you wear
      a hard bottom 6mm dive boot. L might be your size. M might be best if you
      are using them in tough situations eg. surf.

    Q:

    Hello, I am a 15 year old white water river boarder. I had flippers from Dick's Sporting Goods but the broke after a few days. Do these brake easily? Also I wear size 7 or 8 shoes so what will fit me? Thanks!- Thomas

      No they do not break easy or wear out. A friend of mine has had them for years on the Ocoee river. You would want to get a medium cause you wear them over a pair of shoes.

      Thomas, these are very sturdy, they won't break on you. It's a closeout item and the Medium that's left fit men's shoe size 7-8.

      Hi, these still feel a little weird and uncomfortable when using a smaller
      size on bare feet, but they will last. I would recommend going slightly
      larger so that you can wear a neoprene bootie with a hard sole under them.

      A:

      I haven't used them in the river. They are not as sturdy as other brands but should last a season or more. They ran a little large. I'm not sure what you bought at dicks but it sounds like it was not a national bran or fliiper built for body boarding, the nrs fins are built for the job.

      A:

      Dear Thomas: These won't break unless you take some dynamite and a hammer and chisel to them. Even I, a 60 year old river guide who breaks things by just looking at them couldn't do it. Having said that, you're welcome to try, but I'd suggest if you never ever wear wetsuit booties or socks (like you always swim in the tropics or subtropics)k, to get a large (you may still grow a bit). But if you do wear booties (like I do when I teach swiftwater rescue here in Australia, as well as a drysuit), I'd suggest XL to fit over that. I wear a 9 and a half shoe, and have to use an XXL to fit over my booties. Good boarding to you!

      vary durable product, I think that you will be happy with them. I believe
      that NRS has a sizing chart. A word o advice get a good
      pair of river bootys and get the fins one size larger.
      good luck.

      These seem really sturdy and will probably not break, I have size 13+ shoe
      and these were actually roomy, I ordered the biggest size tho and even then
      I could probably wear these with neoprene socks, maybe not river shoes
      unless they were very light.
      Not sure about your size, I would say order them to fit loosely and you can
      probably were them with river boots.
      I wear these in the swimming pool to work on kicking. If I try to kick
      across the pool I never make it. Like I really like these and recommend
      them.

      They are tough, no doubt.  Watch the size.  Based on reviews I got the largest thinking I could wear them with my water booties but can not.  They are way too big for my bare feet and therefore of no use to me.

      Thomas,
      These NRS fins are very sturdy and they run true to size. You would want
      to purchase a size 7-8. If you are interested in other fins as well there
      are at least 20 or so brands that you can purchase from different
      bodyboarding websites. Where are you boarding most? Cold water? Warm
      water? I suggest wearing a pair of booties inside you fins regardless of
      the water temperature in order to protect your heals from sharp rocks and
      to keep your feet from getting sores from rubbing against the rubber of the
      fin. I recently purchased a pair of neoprene socks from NRS as well which
      are 3mm they are very warm and comfy. If you are in colder water you might
      want to consider a 5mm thick sock. If you go with a thicker sock you might
      want to size up the fins one size. I hope this information helps you out,
      have fun out there on the river and tear it up!

      No, these things will never break. Riverboarded the New River last year in West Virginia and they worked great, very durable, very comfortable.

      A:

      The NRS fins are excellent. Not too large a fin, smallish and manageable,
      you can walk in them. The heel is a flexible section, looks good for the
      long haul. Size will fit, even if you wear soft boots, not a hard sole
      type, more a neoprene sock type.

      I bought these with the intent of squeezing out some double duty: swiftwater rescue use with a bootie, and, barefooted lap use. I wear a 9.5/10 street shoe, and bought these in size 10-12. They are a little tight with a bootie, and a little loose barefooted, but I can use them for both. If you just want them for lap swimming, I think the sizing is probably reliable as stated.

    Q:

    Hi, my name is Will Chambers. I worked for Wild Water Adventures, out of Lake Louie AB, for two summers. We did one staff trip down the Lower Salmon, and stopped by in Moscow to pick up some inflatables. Anyways... I've riverboarded the upper and lower of the Kicking Horse here, and the fins I had both times were not adequate. I'm looking to get some real fins, however I see that you don't have L in stock. Think I'd need L fins to fit over booties.
    Any suggestions?

      Will, this swim fin model is a closeout, so it's only existing sizes left. The newer model is # 18981, available in two sizes. The larger one should work for you.

      I hope you got a tour when you were here. Stop by anytime you're in the neighborhood!

                  I totally recommend these fins for riverboarding over the other styles that NRS sells. Maybe not quite as much thrust output over a few fins, but still good. I bought a small size to try out barefoot or with thin socks. Look forward to ordering some larger sizes to try with a heavier soled neoprene boot.

                    Used these fins for a riverboarding section on the New River in West Virginia during an adventure race in late September. They worked great, good control through the rapids and good power on the flat section. Comfortable and easy to put on and take off.
