As mentioned in the previous blog about diving fins, it is important to buy diving shoes before buying fins. Diving shoes, also called wetsuit shoes, are always made of neoprene and are available in different thicknesses and heights. They vary in thickness from 3 to 7 millimetres.
3-millimetre diving shoes
In warmer destinations, thin shoes are sufficient, because the water is warm enough to dive with minimal protection. Often a 3-millimetre shoe is used for diving. Diving shoes of 3 millimetres thick are available in a high or low model. When it comes to protection, it doesn’t matter if you go for a high or low model, it’s just what you like best as a diver.
