full foot fins are what you want, straps rob you of 40% of your energy according to tests on Mares Avanti Ls.

 

If you are not a super good swimmer I would avoid stiff freediving fins. If you try some soft (long distance) freediving fins you will never go back.

 

That said you may not require real freediving fins, I would suggest to Mares HP swimming fins to most people.
