    Comments about Barefoot International Foot Skis:

    Hi, To put the shoe skis (foot skis) on your feet you have to use wakeboard binding slime or dish soap and dip your feet and the shoe skis over the side of the boat into the water to get them wet. Then start to put them on by sticking your toes into the toe bindings and then kick the tips of the show skis down on the floor of the boat hard enough to get your feet to slide forward till your toes and heels are the same distance from the front and back of the shoe skis. The bindings will be able to stretch as much as needed to fit any size foot. I have tested them on people with feet up to size 14. It is very important to center your feet on the shoe skis from front to back or they will not work. If your toes are an inch from the front of the shoe skis your heels have to be an inch from the back of the shoe skis or you will have no control when skiing on them. Everytime you fall take your time to look to see if the shoe skis have stayed centered from front to back on your feet and if not take the time needed to kick them back on till they are centered again before you go. This is vital for the shoes skis to work good. It is important to have calm water when shoe skiing. It is important to go between 20 and 25 mph on the shoe skis. It is normal for the shoe skis to spray water in your face. Just squint like when you take a shower. Do not close your eye or turn your head to the side. You need to squint so you can see to keep good balance. These shoe skis are one size fit all because the binings can stretch as much as needed without tearing the bindings. The bindings may be very tight on your feet and this normally makes peoples feet ache until they get use to them. Just like at the beggining of the season most barefoot waterskiers arches ache from the water hitting them but after time their feet get use to it and the same thing will happen with the shoe skis. Over time you will get use to them being tight and they will not ache anymore. I always had the barefoot student of mine take short runs with the shoe ski till they got use to them. These shoe skis are one size fits all.

          Great for a beginner. Speed can be greatly reduced. They stay on even during a fall.

              Comments about Barefoot International Foot Skis:

              Even with the adjustment, my heel still hung 2" off the back of the shoe. I'm a size 9/10 men's which isn't that big. The padding that prevented the shoe from falling off on the top off of the foot dug unevenly over the foot giving it a sharp pain with any movement. This might work for children, but is DEFINITELY NOT FOR ADULT size feet. The shipping and return process was very fast though.

                What speed would be enough to get up on these skis? How would it compare to real barefoot? Thanks!

                  Haven't tried these, but, have used others. Can go quite slow.
                  25-28. Doesn't compare to real barefoot when you have the water rushing on your feet. but, fun none the less. I would give it a try.
