No tired ankles or chafed heels snorkeling fins


Afton enjoys snorkeling with shinfinTM fins because they don’t give him tired ankles or chafed heels like traditional foot fins. This because they encourage him to kick with his whole leg, without ankle strain or Achilles pain. They streamline his entire body to snorkel faster. Plus, there is no heel strap to rub or chafe. So he can snorkel comfortably for longer. Tough and lightweight, they are also easier to pack for snorkeling trips. Furthermore, they stay on in waves.

Afton’s review from St. George, USA

“I just returned from a snorkeling trip in Bermuda. I enjoyed using my shinfinTM fins. With traditional fins I ended up with tired ankles and the strap chafing on my heel. On this trip I was always the last one out and felt the same as when I first went in. I will definitely recommend them. shinfinTM ON!”

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.”

Less muscle & ankle strain bodyboarding fins


Bodyboarding with shinfin fins gives Wendy less lower leg muscle fatigue and less ankle strain than any foot fins she has ever used. From her occupational therapist viewpoint, she understands and feels these therapeutic biomechanical advantages.

Wendy’s review from San Francisco, USA

“Overall, I LOVE them! Really takes the strain off your ankles for kicking power. I feel far less lower extremity fatigue and strain when I use them. I still think shinfin fins superior to any fins I have ever used.”

Broken leg recovery hydrotherapy fins


Using shinfin fins for various hydrotherapy strengthening exercises helps Vicki’s recovery from her broken leg. Despite her swollen ankle, the fins still fit her. Furthermore, they don’t make her ankles ache like normal foot flippers. Without a bulky foot pocket, they are lighter and easier to pack into her bag. As they leave her feet free, she found them quite good to walk in too.

Vicki’s review from Sandy Bay, Australia

“Have enjoyed swimming with the fins. After one recent swim, I tried a normal pair of flippers on and found them quite hard work on my ankle that is still aching at the end of the day! No such problems with shinfin fins. They also happen to fit in the swimming bag a bit easier too!”
