Swimming fins

In this category, you will find not just ordinary swim fins - you'll discover the best of the best. This means that we've carefully selected only those swim fins that we've personally tested and can fully endorse. They are perfect for swim training at all levels, leisure swimming, triathlon training, or a diving adventure. The fins come in a variety of colors and styles, from all the well-known brands like Arena, Speedo, TYR, and Aqua Sphere, so there's a pair for you. Tip: Particularly the DMC elite swim fins and Arena Powerfins Pro are particularly popular among swimmers.

Do you also love the feeling of being the world's fastest swimmer as you glide over the water with swim fins on? We certainly do. Realistically, this is the sensation that a pair of fins should provide – the feeling of swimming faster than usual, which is quite delightful, especially for your self-confidence. And it's pretty cool to have such a propeller at your feet. You should try it if you haven't yet – it's incredibly fun!

Hence, swim fins are such an essential part of one's training.

It's hardly a secret that swim fins are widely used as part of the training in many Irish swimming clubs. And there's good reason for that.

Firstly, swim fins can help with practising new technical aspects. For example, if you need to change your rhythm in freestyle, the extra powerful kick provided by the fins can assist, allowing the legs to move automatically without needing to focus on them.

Another point is that you can achieve a stronger kick with swim fins since the surface area to kick with is larger. This is especially beneficial for streamline swimming, as it allows for both extended length and increased power.

Moreover, swim fins are an excellent tool for stabilising your swimming. With a pair of swim fins, you automatically get a forward-driving kick, which lets you focus on your body position in the water or on your breathing. This is much easier with swim fins on.

Choosing Swim Fins for Training

You've probably figured it out already. There are MANY different kinds of swim fins. Some are long and large (used for diving, etc.), then there are slightly smaller but still relatively long ones (used for snorkelling), and then there are small ones that extend just about 15 cm beyond the foot (used for swim training).

So, if you're looking for a pair of swim fins for training, you should opt for these short ones as they are easiest to use in a swimming pool. It is practically impossible to turn with the other two types of swim fins, as they are too large.

Additionally, the last type of swim fins is so small that they can be controlled easily by the foot.

Within these training swim fins, there are several different types from various brands. In competitive swimming, "DMC Elite Fins" are the most well-known and used. This is partly due to a strap around the heel, instead of a "full heel," becoming very popular among swimmers in recent years, which the aforementioned fins have.

A pair of swim fins that can't be overlooked, good for both training and competition and among customers' favourites, are these Arena Power Pro fins available in several different colours.

Swim Fins with or without a Full Heel/Strap?

A strap around the heel instead of a full heel is a relatively recent development. But now, it's almost what every swimmer uses. This is partly because swim fins with a strap do not put the same strain on the Achilles tendon as a full heel does. Additionally, swim fins with a strap offer greater flexibility in the ankle joint, allowing for more influence over the fins and consequently the speed.

We find swim fins without a full heel to be the most comfortable. We used to swim with swim fins that had a full heel (like these Speedo swim fins and DMC swim fins), but as other types have come onto the market, swim fins with a strap have become our favourite.

This is both because we find such swim fins more comfortable to wear for longer periods, and they fit much more snugly on the foot, so they never fall off during a set (which can happen with full-heel swim fins).

Swim Fins/Fins/Zoomers - It's All the Same

You might have heard several different terms for a regular pair of swim fins. Among the general public, a pair of swim fins are called fins, while in diving/freediving/snorkelling, they are referred to as zoomers.

In reality, these are just three words for the same thing. There's no difference in model or appearance, whether they're called swim fins, fins, or zoomers. So that's settled.

Therefore, we've made it easy for you here on watery.ie. We've done away with all the different terms and just called them one thing: Swim Fins. This way, you can easily find what you need without too much confusion.
