I bought these because they are inexpensive and work better than boots alone. They easily fit over wading boots, however they are inefficient compared to good longer fins. I need to lean back in my tube to extend my legs well enough to generate power, which lets water enter my waders through the back. Perhaps these can be left on and don't get in the way as much as longer fins in shallow water, but I wouldn't want to depend on these in faster moving water or windy conditions.

These fins are good quality and easy to buckle. However....make sure they will fit your boots. The inside width at the back where the heel opens up is 3 3/8 inches wide. If your wading boot sole is wider that that (at about 3 to 3 1/2 inches from rear of the sole) then the boot will not fit down snug against the fin because the boot sole is too wide. My size 13 Simms wading boots with vibram sole will not work with these but I have an older felt sole pair of boots that will. Measure your boots to make sure the sole is not too wide before ordering. Otherwise, they are great.
