We often get asked for a smaller size interchangeable foot pocket solution for ladies, that can fit Spierre fin blades.

Spierre fin blades are designed in such a way to fit most universal foot pockets, making it easier for the customer to fit a foot pocket of their choice that works well for them and that fits to the blades.   Just as there is no single fin blade stiffness or design that will suit everyone, in a similar way the foot pockets that you select will also be a personal preference and a well fitting, comfortable foot pocket that supports your foot well is invaluable.

In the case of Omer Stingray / Eagleray and Sporasub foot pockets we shape and lengthen the back of the fin blade to slot in perfectly into the foot pocket and if you purchase your fin blades without foot pockets from us, its best to inform us of the foot pockets that you'll be fitting them to so that we can prepare your fin blades to fit them.

Freedivers often wear a 3mm sock when diving with fins as they find it is more comfortable and the 3mm sock helps to fill in any unnecessary space if the foot pocket is slightly loose.  A fin guard/saver can also help keep the foot pocket in place when diving with a looser foot pocket and is helpful against losing a fin when in rough surf.

Below is a list and brief description of foot pockets available in smaller sizes which we are familiar with and work well with Spierre fin blades:

1.  Mares Razor (smallest size) EU39-40

Mares footpocket sizes have been designed to make allowance for a 3mm sock to be worn, therefore the foot pocket is always slightly looser than the size.  Mares also provides an optional foot pocket insert that can reduce the size by up to one size down if necessary.

2. Omer
 Millenium (smallest size EU38-40)

Also has foot pockets in a size EU38-40 and wearing a thicker sock can help if this size is still too big.

3. Captain Nemo
 (smallest size EU37-39)

4.  Sporasub
Ladies Spitfire (smallest size 37-39)

Designed to give you complete comfort while diving.  The foot pocket features a thermo rubber foot-pocket, molded using two materials, with a different hardness to combine excellent performance with comfort, without tiring out the legs even after hours of use.

6.  Pathos Fireblade
   (smallest sizes 36/38 or 38/40)

Pathos foot pockets are a popular choice as they are comfortable and light (only 370 gr.) The  foot pocket side arms (tendons) are also thinner and softer in order to work well with the blade stiffness and bend, therefore not exerting too much strain on your legs.

7.  Seac (smallest size EU36-38)

Seac foot fin pockets are soft on the top and sides for comfort, and hard on the bottom for energy transfer. The foot pocket side arms (tendons) are  softer than most, similar to the Pathos, so your fin blades will be more responsive.  It is important that the side arms should not be too hard thereby resisting the blade and affecting the performance of the fin blade.

8.  Cressi  (smallest size 38-39)

The Cressi Gara Modular foot pockets  are soft and comfortable. The sole is stiff and allows good power transfer to the blades. The foot pocket tendons have moderate stiffness and offers the blade good support without negatively affecting its bend. Cressi foot pockets are suited for narrower feet.

 

Available Sizes:
EU38-39
EU40-41
EU42-43
EU44-45
 EU46-47
