New fin evolution
Their unique natural fin design matches the kick biomechanics of elite swimmers for freestyle, backstroke and butterfly. So their streamlined kick from the hip replaces the old bent-knee kick of foot flippers. If you don’t already do a streamlined kick, they will teach you. (Some customers use them for breaststroke or “frog-kick” but they are not specifically designed for this.)
And of course, you can buy them from our secure online shop for delivery worldwide, with a 100 day money-back guarantee. I think you’ll love them too. Any questions just ask – I am here to help. Many thanks from Marc Lee (Inventor & Designer). Please read on…
Fitting benefits make them feel like a natural part of your body. More adjustable so single size fits you properly. More comfortable because they don’t hurt your feet or give you cramps. Your feet are free to walk, dive and swim. Stronger and lighter for maximum power.
Kicking benefits make your swimming feel wonderful. Better swim style encourages elite swimming strokes for freestyle, backstroke & fly. Hip powered kick uses stronger muscles. Smooth swimming kick streamlines your entire body.
Fin size explains how one size fits all kids to adults taller than 140cm (4′ 7″) and all leg shapes. Of course, your foot size doesn’t matter.
Fitting fins describes putting them on and taking them off. Also tightening, adjusting and positioning on leg for best results.
Kicking fins explains how they encourage a streamlined kick from your hips, with only a little knee-bend. In contrast, foot flippers need much more knee-bend, which increases strain and cramps.
Walking with fins explains how much easier they are for walking on land and also in the water. Unlike foot flippers!
Fin care & materials tells you how to look after these polyurethane fins and natural rubber straps. Basically, rinse after use and store out of the sun.
You can use them with many disabilities. They work with bunions, club feet, fused ankles, foot amputations, below knee amputations (BKA), above knee amputations (AKA), bilateral amputees etc. Furthermore, you can even strap them to your arms with below elbow amputations and above elbow amputations. In addition, they provide real benefits for many movement disabilities such as Cerebral Palsy (CP), Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Parkinson’s Disease (PD), neuropathy and stroke complications.
They are invaluable for learning to swim, building muscle tone, regaining movement control, rehabilitation etc. That is why we get excellent feedback.

I get so many emails about the issues people have with their foot flippers. Most likely you already know some of the foot flipper problems too.
Foot flippers cause problems because they fit on your feet. Firstly, they often don’t fit properly – too wide, too narrow, not enough sizes etc. So they hurt your feet. Secondly, they stress your ankles, strain your calf muscles and twist your knees too much. Thirdly, they change your kick to a “bicycle kick” with too much knee-bend. Furthermore, because they are heavy and bulky, they tend to fall off and sink. Often they break or rot. Of course, they also trip you up when you walk!
Leave all these foot flipper problems behind when you switch to shinfin
