    Hi

    I recently changed to a drysuit with Scubapro Rock Boots. Size XL.

    I have Mares Plana Avanti Fins, size XL.

    Although the boots fit, they are a tight squeeze and not easy to get on and off.

    Does anyone know which fins have the biggest foot pockets?

    the Deep6 Eddy XXL's are quite big. Scubapro Jet Fin XXL's, Hollis F1, etc. are all going to be fine for those rock boots depending on whether you want heavy or neutral fins

    If it's just a bit hard to get on or off, putting a layer of car wax on the inside of the foot pocket works wonders, and lasts at least 25 diving days.

    Had the same experience with the old Scubapro XXL Jetfins, was able to get both of my feet in the footpocket of 1 fin. Thats why I wnt back to the XLs and Car wax.
