If I wear a half-size shoe, what do I order? Just order your regular street shoe size, such as a 10 1/2. We need to have your street shoe size. The Riptide shoes run about 1 size larger than a normal shoe. The swim shoe should fit like socks, so we will downsize 1 size from the size you tell us. Please don't downsize it when you order. How do I attach Riptide so I can swim? Riptide comes with a clip at the end. If you have a port on the side of your pool for a line to divide the deep end from the shallow end, you can clip into it. You can attach it to the step handrail or the ladder by wrapping the line around the rail and clipping it onto the cord. Clip the Riptide into a rope and tie the rope to a fence post or tree. We have some who clip Riptide on a rope, the rope is tied onto a piece of wood and they shut the wood in the door. My wife and I want to both use Riptide. How do I change the shoes? Riptide has a clip that attaches the shoes to the cord. Just unclip one pair and attach the other. Does Riptide have a guarantee? Riptide has a one-year guarantee on workmanship and materials.
