If you do have wide feet and a straight back of the heel, these seem to run short, buy larger size
on June 26, 2015
Bought these for my husband as a birthday present, but when they arrived, I opened them and looked at them and they seemed small (short) so I tried them on (I am female, size 9 1/2, which translates to about a men's 8 1/2) and smashed the tips of my toes putting them on, they seemed small. So I decided not to wait for hubby's birthday but to have him try them on right away so I could return them if needed. He is a Men's shoe size 9 1/2 EE to EEE so I bought these fins in size 9-10. I bought these because some people said they are good for wide feet. He did like the width and thought that part was comfortable (and he had them on the correct feet, since these are not interchangeable like some fins) but they were too short. I would recommend buying a size larger than you need, especially if the back of your ankle/achilles tendon is fairly straight so the back strap of the fin is not much further in than the back of your heel. They are quite heavy, but he never tried them in the water since they didn't fit. He didn't like them overall that much, so I am returning but not buying a larger size. Will have to come up with a different present.
