Churchill fins are some of the best fins you can get. They were one of the first swim fins ever crafted. Owen Churchill, a prolific Olympic sailor, created the first pair in 1936. Over the years, the company has perfected the design to create something thatâs comfortable and incredibly effective. All Churchill fins are crafted to be comfortable. One of the biggest complaints about swimming fins is the awkward fit and flexibility. Many fins out there will end up hurting your feet with prolonged use.Most fins make you choose between effectiveness and comfort. Churchill differs in its design and material. The companyâs implementation of 100% natural gum rubber has allowed the fins to be firm, yet comfortable. Instead of choosing effectiveness over comfort, or vice versa, Churchill provides the best of both worlds. The flexibility and fit of the rubber allows you to get the most out of your fins without hurting your feet. Regardless of your skill level, Churchill fins are the way to go. The glue rubber covering your foot is soft while the white rubber found on the blade is stiff to ensure maximum power and thrust for paddling.
