How to choose and buy his diving booties ?

Buy his diving booties

His choice of dive booties or its diving booties may depend on your comfort and success of your dives. It needs most to know is that you should never be clamped in a pair of diving fins. Diving booties have several interests. They complete your wetsuit protecting your feet from the cold. You choose the thickness for you based on your resistance to cold and the time of year when you dive preferentially

  • If using diving booties in your dive fins, the ideal is to buy at the same time the pair of fins and diving socks. Indeed too small diving fins will cause you cramps in the foot and at minimum, give you cold feet. And conversely too large diving fins will either leave your feet or requested an effort to keep them, which in the end will give you trouble in the shin. 
  • Diving booties act as a buffer between your foot and your dive fin and its thickness should be based on the shape of your foot, the dive fin used and the temperature of the water in which you dive. It is always better to add a fixed price of being too tight. You have at your disposal all the conventional diving booties thicknesses: 2mm, 3mm, 4mm, 5mm, 6mm and 7mm and socks also coated with a latex reinforcement that still take a bit more room in the fin. If you plan to dive in warm water, a 3mm boot would be fine. However, for cold water diving you’ll need a boot that’s 5mm or over.
  • If you are a diver scuba you often use adjustable fins, easier to put on or take off. You have at your disposal different thicknesses for your dive booties and different flexibilities that allow you to adapt to your best pair of diving fins.
  • The type of sole will also be determined by the type of diving you intend to do. If you generally dive from a dive boat, then a thin sole would be sufficient. However, If you will be doing a lot of shore diving, then you will need to buy dive booties with thick sole to help you walk over shark rocks and obstacles that would penetrate a thinner soles.
  • Some diving booties models have a zipper quite useful for the strong "kicks" or wide feet, others are made of neoprene "ultra soft" easier to put on than investments in traditional neoprene.
  • Having behind the diving booties bulge prevents your dive fin strap from sliding under the heel.
  • Sufficiently thick sole Diving booties allow heavily loaded walk arround.

Neoprene diving booties made of glued edge to edge and Overcast will be warmer and more comfortable than diving booties made couture "flat" that lets circulate the water and whose seams irritation in your feet
