DMC ORIGINAL TRAINING FINS
Natural Kick Action - Reduces Fatigue - Universal Foot - Maximum Comfort

The V channel edge creates a 'grip' on the water, maximises kick drill results and development of neuromuscular memory

All feet are very different, so fitting a foot into a fixed shape foot cavity of moulded flexible material is an inexact science. We do not compare our fin sizes to shoe sizes as the construction of fins and shoes are very different.
The closest measurement to work out what size fin you will need is the length of your foot +/- 3-5 mm.
Please note that each of our fin models has its own mould, so sizes may vary between models. Original training fin, Elite II and Repellor fins are a universal foot, meaning you can wear either fin on either foot, also giving you a wider foot cavity. Our Elite and Elite MAX are specific left and right foot fit.
1: Check Length – Stand on a piece of paper against a wall and put a dot in front of your big toe, and a dot at the back of your heel.
2: Measure the distance between front and back dots. This should be the length of your foot.
3: Ask yourself if you like your fins to fit snug, or not. Allow +/- 3-5 mm in length for your ideal comfort.
TIP: If you’re still not sure, order 2 pairs, and then return the pair that doesn’t fit, for a refund on the cost of the returned item. See Returns & Refunds on our website.
