So in my daily online searches I can across this new item the Sinfin.  That is right you got it a fin that attaches to your shin and here is there claim.
"Your feet are free to walk and push off the bottom as required. The straps adjust so you can wear shinfin fins over waders and with water shoes. To minimize drag, water shoes should be streamlined and flexible (so you can point your toes), without heavy sole or heel areas. It is best to use the light, flexible water shoes designed for swimming and beach walking."
I like the idea and am hopeful to give these a try soon.  What do you guys think.

We kick backward on our float tubes, so this looks like it would scoop the water on the forward leg thrust and it would easily collapse on the leg’s re-coil to thrust kick again.

I think that this could really work and maybe help to excel us in the water under normal conditions.
I look forward to your usage and review of this item

I’d be willing to give them a try! lol

I don't know Jeff.
I hope you do a test report on them. Maybe compare  and contrast?

I do remember Fishmaster Style Paddle PusherFins

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

They attach to your ankles and line up with your calves to push water.

Good luck

So I am looking into these more and I see that they are about $99 including express shipping. Says it should take up to 15 days at least that is what it says.
They do come in 3 colors the blue you see, white and, dark gray.
My concern with the fin is not the forward kick but the downward kick. Seems like you might lose that side of the kick. Of course a trade for being able to walk to the water with out worrying about carrying your fins with everything else.

What if we wore both or all three at one time, might have to slow the kick in the no wake zone.

I am going to order a pair as soon as I can. Might be a bit but I am very interested to try these as I am sure they will work.
