With both ankles fused, Gary finds shinfinTM fins fantastic, giving extra propulsion for snorkeling plus easy to walk in. Because they strap above his ankles, they reduce his fused ankle foot drag by directing water flow over the tops of his feet. Their adjustable fit means he can position them to suit his fused ankles, so they stay securely in place.
Gary’s review from Minneapolis, USA
“They worked fantastic!!! Perfect thing for someone who has both feet fused. Easy to walk in, stay in place and is a big difference to not wearing any. You need to add more information on your website as to the benefits for fused ankles. Great idea and invention!!! As an engineer, I was thinking of ideas and when I saw these I knew you nailed it.”
Gary’s review: Easy to walk snorkeling fins with both ankles fused
That’s wonderful to hear that they worked fantastic for your snorkeling Gary, so thank you for getting back to me. Good point about adding more information on the website on their benefits with fused ankles. So can I ask a favour please, would you mind if I put some extracts from your emails on the website?
“Marc, no problem!! Please just put Minneapolis and my first name. Thanks again.”
“One more thing is out there, our dream vacation in 4 years is Australia. Need some snorkeling tips (spots) when we come.”
Well let’s hope the Great Barrier Reef survives well enough. Thank you for your kind permission. Personal recommendation is very important to help a new product like this along, so I really appreciate it.
Even with one or both ankles fused, shinfinTM fins give you extra propulsion for snorkeling and many other water activities, plus they are easy to walk in. Because they strap above your ankles, they reduce your fused ankle foot drag by directing water flow over the tops of your feet. Their adjustable fit allows you to position them to match your fused ankles, so they stay securely in place. In contrast, people with fused ankles generally cannot wear any foot flippers at all, and can’t swim properly without shinfinTM fins.
