On another thread someone mentioned their size 12 foot, I fall in with a size 8. Sometimes I wonder how important foot size is and if it helps to have a larger foot to kick with. Perhaps part of the sensation of the dolphin kick combined with free style stroke is appealing to me. I find that I swim with little emphasis on the kick, something that a little more work will help with my times. For now, I believe the kicks purpose is initiating body roll, assisting the whole to progress through the water, it is not only for propulsion. It is all timing, the kick is one tick in the sequence.
