    small possibly xs should work, it is always best to try on in shop with the boots you are going to use. Fins are something that is very personal, if possible try a few in the pool before you buy. The X3 is a great fin.

    I used to rep Mares before Oceanic, that's why I answered.

    Shirley,
    Sorry for the delayed response, I've been travelling last week and internet was spotty. Chris is correct about the sizing. Depending on what type boot you wear you could be a small. Best to try it on if possible. Also as Chris mentioned this fin is a great fin for the price! We do have fins that are more expensive, which will include better technology, like the volo power. Basically you will get more power, and it will be easier to swim with! If you are on a budget, the X-3 is one of the best.
    Best,

    Zak O'Hara
