When you walk, your foot absorbs a force equal to twice your body weight with each step. For an overweight individual, that’s more force than feet and joints are designed to withstand, so it’s not uncommon to experience pain along the kinetic chain—foot pain, knee pain, hip pain and/or lower back pain.

Unfortunately, the increased impact puts overweight persons at an even greater risk for injury when walking or running as a means to lose weight, but the right shoes can relieve pain and prevent injury to allow overweight individuals to safely work towards a healthy body weight.

The Right Shoes for Overweight Individuals

Trying on Z-CoiL ShoesAlthough there are countless products available for pain relief, proper footwear is, perhaps, the best pain relief solution available for overweight individuals seeking to increase their activity levels. However, not all walking or running shoes provide the support an overweight person needs to safely increase their activity levels.

Because additional weight puts increased stress on lower body joints when standing, walking or running, shoes must provide significant impact reduction to protect the joints. Most running and walking shoes offer some impact reduction through cushiony insoles and thick outsoles, but for anyone—a normal weight or overweight person, that’s not enough.

Z-CoiL® Pain Relief Footwear®‘s patented technology provides up to 60% impact reduction, and Z-CoiL‘s built-in orthotic stabilizes plantar ligaments, preventing foot pain. The Z-CoiL treatment facilitates a smooth gait that reduces stress, prevents injury and enhances mobility.

Being overweight can cause physical pain that keeps people sedentary, and the increased risk of impact-induced injury can also hinder weight loss efforts. Z-CoiL treatment provides an effective solution. By significantly reducing impact, Z-CoiL shoes provide effective pain relief and help prevent injury to allow overweight individuals to resume an active lifestyle and improve their overall health.
