Comfortable fit with hammertoes & bunions: snorkeling fins


shinfinTM fins fit Catherine comfortably and allow her to snorkel again, even though she has severe hammertoes and bunions on her feet. They minimise foot pain because they attach above her ankles and leave her feet free. Furthermore, they are adjustable to different heights and angles on her legs. So they also relax her ankles and feet. In contrast, Catherine finds fitting regular foot fins impossible.

Catherine’s review from Los Angeles, USA

“Thank you so much for your invention. I have severe hammertoes and bunions, and finding fins that fit was impossible. Last year when I tried snorkeling in Hawaii, I was so frustrated because I could not find fins that I could wear. Now, thanks to discovering the shinfinTM fins, I am able to snorkel 🤿 and not feel bad being left out. I can’t thank you enough for helping improve my quality of life.”

Catherine’s review: snorkeling fins that fit comfortably with bunions & hammertoes

“I saw your swim fins online after searching for a solution to my problem. I have severe hammertoes and bunions. Would the fins work for people with hammertoes?”

“I appreciate all your research on solving swim fin solutions for people who have feet issues. I’m looking forward to your thoughts on the hammertoe question.”

Thank you for your order. Yes, I think you will really enjoy them and they will work well for you. This is because you can adjust the fin height and angle on your leg to give you the most comfort with your hammertoes and bunions.

Please let me know how you go with them. Any questions just ask, I am here to help.

“I posted a photo of your fins and link on a bunion Facebook group I belong to. I know there will be interest.”

“My bunion hammertoe feet could never find fins to snorkel. It was impossible to find fins that fit. Thanks to discovering shinfinTM fins, I am now able to snorkel once again.”

Many thanks for your emails and photos, and for posting on Facebook. That is very kind and helpful. Happy snorkeling!

“I’ll take a few more pics to send you. I’m so happy with the fins. They work great with my hammertoes and bunions. It’s winter here, so looking forward to swim weather here once again. The only thing I have an issue with, is I find the straps difficult to tighten. Any tips on how to tighten are appreciated.”

I’m happy to hear that your fins are still working great for you, with your hammertoes and bunions. I look forward to your photos too.

This page should help you with fitting tips. It includes a quick tightening method, part way down the page. So please let me know if that helps you. Any more questions just ask, I am here to help.
