    You using dry suit or wet ???......If wet, Pinnacle and XSScuba make 14 boots that fit well w/the Hollis F-1's......

    I am a size 14 going on 15, and with either 1/4" wet suit boots, or DUI rock boots, my Apollo Bios do fine, although a tad snug on the drysuit, but still comfortable.

    Good to hear. I'm 13/14 so hopefully the foot pockets will have enough headroom for me and the boot.

    Stopped into the store on my way into work this morning and walked out with a pair of boots and a pair of Hollis F1s. It came down to those and the Jets and the F1s just felt a little better on my foot. Got my class tonight so I won't have to wait long to give them a try.

    Where are you taking your classes Todd? I might have to visit LP for a pair of fins myself and I fit your dimensions so thanks for narrowing the number of options for me :D

    I'm taking classes at the Prospect Park YMCA. The program is run by Ocean Horizons.

    Good luck with your fins! Definitely try them on with whatever boots you're going to use.
