Tyr Crossblade Fins

A bit long for training laps, but good for muscle strengthening.

First time using Tri fins and I have naturally wide feet. I'm a Womans size 6 and they weren't too tight or too lose. Jusssst right! I'm excited to use them more. I love the green color too!

Great quality at a good price.

Good quality fins, but my son likes Speedo more.

My shoe size is 10.5 EEEE with a high instep. After trying fins in stores, I ordered these size XXL (13-15). They only fit by smearing vaseline inside. I think they'll be OK for my use, after a few more sessions 10-15 minutes at a time. But I don't understand this sizing. All the training fins I tried were the same.

An essential tool
first fins: happy!
ELLEN ROBINSON, ROCHESTER, NY
I decided to try Tyr's Crossblades, because various swim blogs suggested I should be using short blades, based on my goal of strengthening and toning, but without an overdose of resistance. (I tore my entire left adductor a few years ago, and have to be careful about overdoing resistance workouts.) As I had only used long fins, I could not decide. Crossblades seemed like an excellent compromise, and after my first workout with them, I am sure that I made the right choice. The fins are sturdy but not stiff; the fit is comfortable (as a women's 8.5-9, I ordered the M); and I do prefer them to the longer fins. One note on sizing: When I first put on the fins, the right toe bed and heel rubbed and squished a bit; all it took for a comfortable fit on both feet was for me to put the "offending" fin on the other foot. Problem solved, no rubbing or squeezing.
Easy, fast service
