For those who snorkel, I have a question. I've only snorkeled twice with flippers during the same morning and I got blister on my toes, which were painful and I had to stop snorkeling.
For our Hawaii trip I'd like to avoid that happening and may get new flippers (there is a new, inexpensive model which wasn't around when I got my original pair). The new flippers have a strap in the back that's adjustable, whereas my original ones are all one piece.
I went back to the dive shop today and asked if there was something I could do with my flippers to avoid blisters, but their thinnest neoprene sock was 3 mm. and made the fit too tight.
Then I tried on the new model. The man from the store recommended that we buy flippers to wear with out beach shoes (the thin footwear that fits like a glove with a rubber bottom), or wear the flippers with neoprene socks.
So for those that snorkel: do you wear something between your foot and the snorkel??
It seems to me that it would be odd to snorkel wearing a beach shoe under the flipper, but I really don't know.
Thanks so much,
