Molchanovs Handbuilt Footpockets
The newest generation of handbuilt footpockets provides more comfort for your feet than ever before due to the Comfort Lining and more space for your toes inside the footpockets. The new design is highly UV-resistant and will stay bright and shiny.
The perfect blade for you is a combination of your size and technique. Generally speaking, smaller people will need a softer blade. Similarly, people with straight leg technique will also tend towards a softer blade, whereas people with a bent-knee technique will need a stiffer blade. Blade size also comes into play, with smaller blades being better for smaller people and straight-leg technique. Here are some examples of sensible blade selection:
- A petite female would select a small, soft blade.
- An average size and strength female would select a standard, soft blade.
- An averaged size and strength man with good technique would select a standard, soft blade.
- An averaged size and strength man with bent-leg technique would select a small, medium blade.
- A large man with bent-leg technique would select a large, medium blade.
Standard size foot pockets
|EU Size||Foot length (cm)|
Notes: The EU foot pocket size will typically give a comfort to normal fit without socks (meaning the fins should remain comfortable for long periods of time). If you want a tight fit without socks, it may be necessary to go a size down. If you are wearing socks and want a comfort fit, it may be necessary to go up a size.

Monofin care tips
Here are a few tips on caring for your monofin, to get the longest possible life out of it:
- Rinse your monofin all over (including inside the foot pockets) with fresh water after each use (this includes after use in the pool, as pools contain high levels of chlorine).
- Avoid having your monofin in direct sunlight for extended periods.
- Avoid keeping your monofin in hot places for extended periods (e.g. in the car on a hot day).
- To clean the rubber parts of the fin (especially coloured accents), use a non-acetone based nail cleaner (e.g. ethyl acetate, butyl acetate, or isopropyl alcohol).
- Using a cloth, periodically rub silicon grease into the rubber parts (similar to the way you would rub in a leather preserver into leather shoes).
