Fin benefits summary

Because shinfinTM fins fit on your legs (not on your feet), they give you many benefits over all foot flippers.

Fitting benefits combine so shinfinTM fins feel natural. Adjustable so one size fits you properly. Comfortable so they don’t hurt your feet or give you cramps. Feet free so you can walk, dive and swim. Strong and light for maximum power.

Kicking benefits combine so your swimming with shinfinTM fins feels so much better. Best swim style promotes great swimming strokes for freestyle, backstroke & fly. Hip powered encourages you to kick from your hips using strong muscles. Smooth swimming kick streamlines your entire body.
