Neoprene Socks

They help keep your feet warm.  and like gloves they protect the skin from the environment and the little creatures you don’t always see. The booties also protect your feet from your fin foot pocket. Without them the skin around the foot pocket will get rubbed raw and you will be bleeding in the water. Get some. If you tuck them inside your suit pants it will bake a nice seem.

How should fin socks fit?

Two things to consider here. How they fit on your feet and how your feet with socks will fit in your fin pocket. Like gloves, fin socks should be a little snug because they sill stretch a little when they get wet. If they are too tight your feet will go numb. It’s probably a good idea to buy your fin socks and fins a the same time, so you can make sure everything fits correctly.
