No, they don't

Fin size Jr 7-13 <- in kids. not adults. People seem to really have a hard time understanding/believing that these are only in kids sizes lol. They are literally on the floor next to me. They are one size fits most for kids, and even stretching them out all the way I have kid under 10 who don't fit in them. plus linden has said it many times.

But Mermaid Linden just said they fit right up to a ladies size 8.

I'm a size 9. I'll take pics and prove it when I get home. Not to mention the fluke size is in proportion to a child , not an adult

Hmm... Maybe she meant if you have skinny feet, they'll fit? I rewatched the video a few times, she does say it goes up to a ladies size 8. Maybe she changed the range of size in the foot pockets?

to my knowledge the fins havent changed in the slightest, and I have skinny feet. The size I posted is exactly what's written on the box.

I'm basically saying: don't buy them and expect they'll fit if you're not a kid. This is my thread to let people know I am selling them in Canada, and I wont be giving out refunds for adults who buy a kid's fin thinking it'll fit when the sizes are clearly marked, and it doesn't fit them. It would fit a kid's 8. Since it does kids 7-13.

Are you still selling these. I can't seem to find them on the website anymore
And the video does say that they can fit up to a woman's side 8 with the foam inserts removed and straps fully extended. I think they ment that not for adults though. My niece is young and has big feet for her age. �� so this would fit her frame since she is stil la kid. She would just have to take the foam out the footpockets.

Ladies size 9 with straps extended as far as they go. If you all wanna wear a kids monofin, go for it. I'll wait til Linden does the adult ones.

She's making adult ones???

At this point NO. She is not making adult ones. SHE WANTS TO. It's a goal. But it ultimately comes down to BodyGlove. They need to see the demand is there, and that they will sell. Because it's not just a matter of magically making these ones bigger. Everything has to be re-moulded and cost more to make.

I was saying that more as a sarcastic comment to the reply because my feet don't fit in them since everyone is so obsessed with trying to cram their adult feet in a fin clearly made for kids

The best thing anyone can do if they wanna see adult versions it start emailing body glove. No one else has any control. if they will do it, Linden will be able to do it.

Surely the amount of adult mermaids here on MerNetwork who are interested would be enough to prove there is demand for an adult version of this monfin. Every time I have read about the body glove monofin someone asks if there is an adult version, I'm sure they will have enough demand!

Would it fit people with wide feet? I'm a US size 8 1/2 but I have wide feet. They are nice looking monofins though. I like the shape :)

Basically, not only do I feel they dont fit most adult feet, the proportions for adults is way off even if you do squeeze your feet in. I will only be selling my fins in CANADA to kids, because I do not wish to deal with adults who buy them thinking they can cram their feet in, and then returning them to me because they "don't fit".

If you're american you can buy them from Body Glove directly right now. 29.99 USD, 43.50 CAD for us (which is actually same price just allotted for conversion)

International folks I know you really like them, but this thread is for CANADIANS because that's all I can sell to, and so far a Canadian hasn't had a chance to post in here, besides me.

Don't do it mers!!! I can attest to the serious foot pain of cramming my 7.5 feet into a child size monofin (Mirage Rubber Mermaid Fin). Its fine at first, then the pain sets in 5 minutes later, starting from your arches all the way up your legs. Its not fun! The pain is so bad, it feels like you stood on a stonefish! So don't do it if you are outside of the maximum fin size. With feet pain that bad, you can't swim at all, just dragging your legs behind you.
