Do fins avoid Achilles tendon pain & not hurt Achilles?
To avoid painful pressure on your Achilles tendon, choose fins that strap on your legs, not on your feet. These are comfortable fins that don’t hurt or damage your Achilles.
With regular foot fins, the heel pockets of closed-heel fins often dig into your Achilles. This causes painful sores and bruising. You get a similar problem with open-heel fins. The heel straps dig into your Achilles and hurt.
These new fins avoid this problem because the straps go around your leg just above your ankle joint. This is higher than the sensitive part of your Achilles tendon where it attaches to your heel. So the straps don’t hurt your Achilles like regular fins do.
The straps are stretchy and wide, with soft edges. So they feel comfortable around your leg.
Now you can have comfortable fins and leave your Achilles tendon pain in the past!
