Finally, fins that don’t hurt
Would you like comfortable toes, feet, ankles, Achilles tendons, calf muscles, knees and back? Would you like to avoid painful foot flippers with their cramps and blisters?
In contrast, we all know that pain is a major problem for regular flippers. I reckon heaps of flippers are lying at the bottom of the world’s cupboards. Never used because they hurt so much. Are you sick of wearing flippers? What strain, pain, blisters, cramps and injuries do flippers give you?
To be comfortable, fins need to fit on your legs, not on your feet. Would you like to swim with comfortable toes, feet, ankles and Achilles tendons? Perhaps you need to avoid the calf muscle cramps that flippers give you? Maybe you need fins to minimise the strain in your knees, hips or back? Perhaps you simply want to enjoy swimming again? So read on to learn more. Or contact me. I’d love to discuss how shinfin
They flex to wrap around the front of your leg. So they bend in to fit thin legs. They bend out to fit large legs. The straps are fully adjustable. That’s why one size fin fits a very large range of people comfortably. For extra comfort, all fin edges are tapered thin and flexible. They don’t strap to your foot at all. That’s why they fit regardless of your foot size. For more details on how adjustable they are, please see Adjustable Fins and the Adjustable Fins Reviews. [Regular flippers don’t fit the full range of foot sizes, shapes and widths, even if you find your closest size.]
Comfortable feet & toes
Because they extend gently along the top of your foot to your toes, you only feel gentle pressure on the top of your foot during your forward kick. It’s hardly noticeable. So these comfortable fins don’t give you arch cramps or sore feet. The tips and edges are soft and flexible, so they don’t hurt your toes. [Flippers often squash your feet and trap sand causing sores, blisters and cramps.]
Power connects directly to your leg above your ankle joint. That’s why they don’t strain your ankles. The fins bend when you bend your ankles. So your feet are completely free to swim and walk. [Flippers strain your ankles unnaturally backwards when you kick forwards.]
Happy Achilles tendons
The straps fit higher up your leg from where your Achilles tendon joins your heel. So this avoids painful pressure on the sensitive part of your Achilles tendon. [Flipper heel pockets and heel straps often press right on your Achilles tendon, causing pain and sometimes long term damage.]
Relaxed calf muscles
Power comes from your hips so it doesn’t strain or cramp your calf muscles. Your calf muscles only gently point your toes during your forward kick, like swimming without fins. So your calf muscles are more relaxed and comfortable with these fins. This reduces painful and dangerous calf cramps. [Flippers strain and cramp your calf muscles as they point your toes to hold the flippers in position.]
Less knee strain
Your kick is streamlined with minimal knee bend, like good swimming without fins. Straighter knees reduces the pressure on your knee joints and ligaments. You can also adjust the fin around your leg to be perpendicular to your kick direction. So this minimises painful twisting forces on your knee. [A flipper kick causes much more knee bend and larger knee twisting forces, significantly increasing knee strain.]
Less back pain
Your fins will work best with just a small amount of hip bend. So your thighs are more horizontal and more in line with your back. They also strengthen the core muscles in your back, the same muscles targeted by Pilates exercises. So this helps to minimise lower back pain. [A flipper kick requires you to bend your hips more, sloping your thighs deeper in the water and stressing your lower back.]
Comfortable fin straps
The rubber straps are wide, soft and ribbed for extra contouring and grip. So they stretch as your calf muscles expand and contract. Yet another reason why you will find these fins to be so comfortable. [Flipper materials often rub and hurt your feet so much you can’t swim for long with them.]
Safer & more fun
By reducing pain and cramps, they reduce the significant dangers these problems cause in the water. They also reduce the chance of accidents because they are easier to walk in. More fun and safer swimming overall. [Foot flippers cause pain, dangerous cramps and trip you up. Why take the risk?]
