These fins are put to use about 4x/week and they really have held up well. They are lightweight but solid enough to feel like you're getting a good leg workout. I feel the short blade makes you work harder at your kick and that's a good thing. When paired up with the kickboard, you really feel it.

Previously, they didn't have women's size listed on the specs so it was really hard to gauge. I first bought the Small but it was too Small. I've since purchased a Medium size and I'm a Size 7-7.5/Wide in Women's.

No chafing or blisters at all. So far, it's a great product once you get the size right. I hope they keep making these forever.

These fins were amazing for kicking freestyle sets with a board. But when doing butterfly kick they would separate and put pressure on your knees. We do a lot of underwater work with fins as well and any time I was on my back I would feel as if my knees were going through great amounts of stress...
I would recommend these only for kicking. Swimming purposes i didn't find them useful. Honestly I miss the old orange and blue short fin.

      Comments about Speedo Short Blade Training Fins:

      I swim about 1500 yards 3-4 times per week and I have missed having a set of stubby flippers to augment my workout. I bought these on "spec" and they are great. I bought them one size too small and that is what I would recommend because, although they were very tight when I tried them on at home, they fit quite nicely when wet.

          These fins are really good looking. I have not tried them in the water yet while swimming because they do not fit me well. I bought the size large since I am a size 9 in womens. When the fins arrived and I tried them on, they were too big on my feet.

            I bought these a summer or two ago for my team, and they still perform great! They don't pinch or constrict your feet, and they aren't too heavy. Plus, they're just as effective as long fins.

              I use my fins every time I swim. At the age of 65 I find that swimming is one of my favorite cross-training exercises. The Speedo fins adds some great options while working through my routine. I had a pair for years and finally wore out. Looking forward to wearing out another pair.

                These fins are great. Maybe the design isn't cutting edge, maybe there are more comfortable fins, but I think for the price, it doesn't get better. Arena offers comparable fins- for almost twice the price. I would definitely get these if you're looking for a durable, comfortable, inexpensive that will help improve your flutter or dolphin kick.

                Comments about Speedo Short Blade Training Fins:

                I think silicone is comfortable but lacks the stiffness of rubber. Stifness is realy important when kicking and some fins that i have tried have way to much flex so you loose alot of power in your kick and is not good for form. Almost all company looks like they make silicone fins like tyr, speedo, arena. I have tried almos all the fins on the market and prefer these model from speedo. But still they are a little bit to short for my taste and lack again stifness. These are not perfect but the best there is at my knowledge.

                            These fins were amazing for kicking freestyle sets with a board. But when doing butterfly kick they would separate and put pressure on your knees. We do a lot of underwater work with fins as well and any time I was on my back I would feel as if my knees were going through great amounts of stress...
                            I would recommend these only for kicking. Swimming purposes i didn't find them useful. Honestly I miss the old orange and blue short fin.

                                    these short fins do challenge your ankles. I do not know how rugged they are but hope they last longer than the orange and blue swim fins.

                                    These fins are put to use about 4x/week and they really have held up well. They are lightweight but solid enough to feel like you're getting a good leg workout. I feel the short blade makes you work harder at your kick and that's a good thing. When paired up with the kickboard, you really feel it.

                                    Previously, they didn't have women's size listed on the specs so it was really hard to gauge. I first bought the Small but it was too Small. I've since purchased a Medium size and I'm a Size 7-7.5/Wide in Women's.

                                    No chafing or blisters at all. So far, it's a great product once you get the size right. I hope they keep making these forever.

                                    The fins, you can tell they're good. Out of the water they seem to fit perfectly since I have a wide foot but thinner talon but when I get into the water they become lose but just a little making it quite hard to kick. Other than that I think they're awesome for short strong kicking (something you have to get used to with this fins and it's cool)

                                        I just love these fins! I am a beginner swimmer who received these as a gift from a friend to strengthen my kick and to build up endurance. I've been using these fins for 7 months and they are still as great as when i first received them. Thank you Speedo for coming out with an awesome fin!

                                            Lisa - The boy's shoe size will determine his fin size equivalent.

                                            Most fins are made of silicone or rubber – both are very common materials used in swim fins. The difference is as follows: SILICONE - Very soft, comfortable, and flexible material, Latex Free. Great for those with latex allergies. | RUBBER - Very comfortable material. Has excellent strength and more rigidity. Made from natural rubber. Not recommended for those with latex allergies.
