Better leg workout swim training fins


Barry gets a better, whole leg workout when swim training with his shinfin fins. The fins adjust to fit him fine even though he is 6 foot 5 inches tall with big feet. Furthermore, they don’t hurt his ankles like regular fins. He says he is flying through the water with his shinfin fins.

Barry’s review from Vienna, USA

“I absolutely love my fins and am really glad that I made the purchase. Thanks for making such a great product and having wonderful customer service. I really appreciate it. What I like best about them is that they encourage you to use your whole leg as opposed to just your ankle to kick. I am delighted by the fact that these don’t hurt my ankles anymore.”

Weak arms & mobility disability fins


Amanda has a mobility disability and, as her arms can also be quite weak, she fits her shinfin fins using the alternative strapping for weaker fingers. They adjust to fit her larger legs and allow her to share her fins. By encouraging kicking from the hips, they have greatly improved her kick and swimming comfort. Furthermore, her brother could feel them improving his swim style after only one use.

Amanda’s review from Canberra, Australia

“I have noticed a great improvement in my kick and have really enjoyed the way they work the legs and buttocks. I have a mobility disability and find that the fins make my swim a lot more comfortable. One great thing is being able to share them – much easier than with conventional flippers! But, I am a bit reluctant ’cause I love them so much.”

Great control & no foot pain snorkeling fins


Bill gets great control and maneuverability, without any foot pain, when he snorkels and swims with shinfin fins. They leave his feet free and don’t bend or hurt his feet. In contrast, normal flippers aggravate his feet so they only allow him to swim for short periods.

Bill’s review from Rockingham, Australia

“The shinfin fins were perfect. Everything I had hoped they would be. Great control and maneuverability. Best of all no pain in the foot. So I was in the water till I turned blue. Many thanks for a great invention.”

Freestyle & butterfly help for amputation below knee fins


Anthony has a below knee amputation and finds that shinfin fins really help his freestyle and butterfly swimming techniques. He wears one fin on his right lower leg and adjusts the other fin to fit the 8 inch stump of his left below knee amputation.

Anthony’s review from Hong Kong

“The shinfin fins work perfectly on me. They help a lot in freestyle and especially butterfly. For freestyle, they help to keep both legs in the correct kick actions. For butterfly, they help me to ‘feel’ the kick perfectly so that I know how to turn my body at the right timing.”
