Don’t aggravate Achilles: smooth lap swimming fins


shinfinTM fins allow Francis to swim laps again, with a smooth swimming style that doesn’t aggravate Achilles tendons. This is because they give a smooth kick action which is more comfortable. In particular, lightweight yet very tough, they allow relaxed feet and supple ankles, which takes the strain off the Achilles tendons.

Francis’ review from Mount Eliza, Australia

“The shinfinTM fins have been fantastic. Great for swimming smoothly, controlling the fast-paced foot kicking action that aggravated my Achilles. Allowing me to continue lap swimming, something I really want to do! So they have been great, worth every cent!”

Better snorkeling control & lap swimming fins


Like many people, Jan Carlos uses his shinfinTM fins for multiple activities, finding them great for lap swimming and giving more control when snorkeling. As he feels, this is because they target the correct muscles to give him a powerful kick from his hips. Moreover, their extra control, together with leaving his feet free and not protruding beyond his toes, reduces unwanted damage to frail coral reefs (unlike long foot fins).

Juan Carlos’ review from Brisbane, Australia

“Overall, I’m very happy with my shinfinTM fins. Thanks for a great product and for the support. The initial experience could be a bit disappointing, but in no time you find the benefits. You feel the target muscles working. They are working great for my lap swimming. For snorkeling, they worked fine and you feel you are more in control when trying not to damage the frail coral reefs.”

Less muscle & ankle strain: bodyboarding fins


Bodyboarding with shinfinTM 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.

Light & easy to pack: snorkeling & swimming fins


Urzsula finds it easier traveling with shinfinTM fins for snorkeling and swimming trips because they are so light and easy to pack compared to regular foot flippers. Urszula ordered a couple of pairs for herself and her friend. She found them great for snorkeling and swimming once she became used to them. The fins guide you into a natural kick action, which may not be familiar to some people at first. Also, once you put them on a few times, you naturally adjust the fin position for the best result.

Urszula’s review from Wembley Downs, Australia

“Yes the fins are great. We took them to Thailand and used them for swimming and snorkeling. They are also light and easy to pack!”

Stronger kick balanced position: workout fins


Lorri’s workouts with his shinfinTM fins give him a more balanced body position and a stronger kick from his hips. So this gives him a huge improvement in his fitness swimming workout and he feels the diagonal balance between his arms and legs. Now he can even use hand paddles without a pull buoy. Furthermore, his kick is stronger, even when he takes his fins off. He also uses them for diving and snorkeling in the ocean.
