    I'm interested in purchasing a pair of the Mare Avanti Power Quatros for use during warm water diving off Jupiter and West Palm Beach FL. These fins only come in European sizing. The largest size available is 44/45. What does this equate to in U.S. sizing (size 10, 11, 12)?

    Thanks for any input.

    Depends who you ask:

    Back of Adidas shoebox: 10.5 to 11

    Dansport: 10 to 11

    On-line conversion: 12 to 13 (??)

    InfoAustralia: 11

    I have Mares Avanti HP full-foot fins which seem more-or-less true to size, although possibly I could squeeze into smaller ones.

    Can you try them on?

    It is generally a 10.5-11.

    Do youself a favor and try them on before buying.
