Fins for legs = Freedom for feet
Multi-purpose swim fins, pool & sea.
Multi-benefit for all.
Avoid foot flipper problems.
Use instead of foot flippers. Avoid the many foot foot flipper problems. More fun in the water. Take the plunge and evolve!
Swim fins should be …
- not on your feet
- feet free to walk & swim
- adjustable, one size fit
- comfortable, avoid cramps
- light & tough
- best swim style
- hip power from strong muscles
- natural streamlined swimming
- for freestyle, backstroke & fly
How swim fins work
- strap securely above ankle
- comfortable & flexible fit on leg
- fin from middle of shin to toes
- feet & ankles free to walk
- dive & swim naturally
- down-kick: fin lies along shin
- up-kick: fin flexes from shin
- kick from hips, less knee-bend
- good streamlined swim kick
- big muscle power, thighs, torso
- horizontal body, less drag
Designed for a natural streamlined kick like good swimmers use for freestyle, backstroke and butterfly. So if you don’t already do a streamlined kick, these swim fins will teach you. Some customers use them for breaststroke or “frog-kick” but they are not specifically designed for this.
They encourage kicking from your hips with only a little knee-bend. Foot flippers need much more knee-bend, so they increase strain and cramps.
Most likely you already know some of the problems with regular foot flippers. I get so many emails about the issues people have with their flippers.
Foot flippers cause problems because they fit on your feet. Often, they don’t even fit properly – too wide, too narrow, not enough sizes etc. So they hurt your feet. Next, they stress your ankles, strain your calf muscles and twist your knees too much. They also change your kick to a “bicycle kick” with too much knee-bend. 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 problems behind when you switch to shinfin™ swim fins.
