Other wise hit the fullfoot pocket button (+$15 per pair) and enter the size and make in the comments. Beuchat available in 41-42 or 43-44. Pathos available in 36-38, 38-40, 40-42, 42-44, 44-46. Immersion pockets are also available.
Select the stiffness: 1-soft, 2-medium, 3-hard, 4-extra hard, 5-extra extra hard.
See our web pages for instructions on measuring your feet, and a detailed catalog.
Attention: All Breier Fins are made to order, and are not returnable, and may take up to 8 weeks to deliver. If you want expidited shipping please add $75, If the fins are in production, they can be delivered in as little as two weeks.
All composite fins are fragile, and are only replaceable if they fail due to a manufacturing defect.
Wisdom from Eric Breier:
My first recommendation is to split the team in two kinds of players : the back players and the forward players.
Generally players at the front swim longer distances than the one at the back and for this reason they need softer blades : one level below of hardness for the same weight and size.
With this being said, in a schematic manner :
B1 for smaller women
B2 for medium women and small men
B3 for strong women and medium men
B4 for strong men
B5 for very strong men (+90kg and-or very strong legs)
S glass provide better resistance to mechanical shock and crack propagation.
S glass is also more torsion and bending resistant.
15 % better resistant than E glass : it is the most resistant composite of our range.
We developped S glass blades especially for underwater hockey.
C5 vs C8 :
C5 is made of high strength carbon fiber
C8 is made of intermediate modulus carbon fiber
At a stated hardness of a blade, our goal is to maximize the thrust and the strength of the fins.
When bending the blade, we try to increase the storage of energy whilst preventing the break of the blade.
And thanks to C8, the responsiveness is better (higher modulus than C5) and the blade is less fragile.
Not much, we raise the gain 4 to 5 % but that makes all the difference in competition !

I have oddly shaped feet with very large bunions. I can not find a pair a fins that fit without causing great pain following extended play. I was a bit skeptical but Kevin Ward assured me that the folks in France could make fins to fit my feet. I provided photos and sketches along with the required foot sizing info. My fins arrived and the fit like perfectly made gloves.
I got the C5 carbon with stiffness #4.
I could not be happier. I might go with a stiffness #3 in my next order.
