    Are you wanting the Flatty for a swim foot or just a barefoot foot??

    Kind of both - a foot to walk around the boat/beach with the swims ankle and dive boots and then to use with the fins in the water.

    the free style swim foot can do all that you ask it is what i use it is a great walking foot and also a great swim foot you can put a fin on. and the foot shell that comes with is it really strong and durable i have walked barefoot on sharp rocks where i dive and there is no cuts od rips.

    i have one question: Why do you want a 0" heal hight?

    I really want the Freestyle foot, and am talking to the rep from Freedom-Innovations about a discount or sponsorship, just can't swing the $ for the Freestyle.

    The difference in price between the swim ankle and an old foot from my prosthetist and the Freestyle is $1800 – quite a hunk of change.
    As soon as I can afford it, the Freestyle is in the plan – having a dive ankle and a carbon fiber energy storing foot would be heaven!

    The flatty heel height – for walking in just plain dive boots on the boat and barefoot on the beach – something I haven’t done in 9 years now.

    Have you looked at the free style swim foot yet. It is what I use and it is what you are looking for

    If you don't mind, everyone who has a Freestyle - PM with what you paid - maybe I got quoted on the wrong foot! Insurance won't cover it of course...
