    The shoes quality is excellent. However, it is kind of expensive.

    As is so often lately the replacement heels just make the shoes unwearable. I now have 4 pair that I guess I have to replace and one of those is no longer available.

    I too love my ZCoils. I have had 3 pair over the years. Started with a pair of white tennis shoes. I then got a pair of black tennis shoe and a pair of brown boots (that are no longer made). I mostly wear the tennis shoes, but the quality has gone way down since my first pair. I washed them monthly and air dried. Never had any trouble. The first time I washed the black pair, the sole came off. I tried to glue it back, but they were never the same. Ended up losing the sole piece by piece. I certainly hope the next pair is better. I sometimes can barely walk when I get up in the morning, but then I put on my ZCoils and I do not even limp. Please, please use the highest grade material you can. These things are NOT cheap to buy, so cut down on your profit a little and use better materials.

    I love these shoes ! Have had my first pair for several years and I think they are almost indestructible ! My friend who has foot trouble, recommended them to me. I wish I had a penny for everyone who has asked me about them, and I highly recommend them to everyone, especially people who stand a lot all day on hard surfaces : nurses, beauticians, retail personnel. Thank you so much, Z-Coil !

    I would not be walking without zcoils, I injured both knees when I worked at wal mart, they would not help me, five years I spent in a nightmare of pain and swelling, if I picked up a jug of milk my knee swelled up and filled my pant legs..i knew people who had acl surgery and did not help. nothing helped the pain. I went to visit my daughter , she had the ugliest shoes I ever saw, her neighbor sold them. I hurt my back and had to go to a chiropractor that Friday, couldn’t stand up straight without pain. my daughter had some credits from referring people for zcoils so she said lets try a pair of sandals for you and use my credits, they wanted to walk around a while to shop,, I said how can I, it hurts too bad to stand straight, so she said lets get your shoes first. we did , I put them on and was able to stand straight up and the pain was gone. I had not been able to drive a standard car, ride in a car or bus without my knees swelling huge. for five years. the next day june18th 2001 I drove from mesa Arizona to Denver Colorado straight thru for my friend and never to this day have I swelled up one time. I have introduced these shoes to hundreds of nurses, teachers and regular people. my sister in law had foot surgery and was in so much pain, she listened to me bought a pair of hikers and put them on, noooooo more pain..one day she put her old shoes on not thinking and for three days she hurt, and then she goes, what is wrong with me I will put my zcoils back on, and she did and the pain went away. my sister wears hers to wal mart , I work at kmart, cement floors, her and I are the only ones who go home at night pain free. I don’t have much money but if I was broke I would find a way to get the money to get these shoes after allll they have done for my life. no price is toooo high for your pain free life. my sister in law worked with a lady who paid $850.00 for orthodics that did nothing for her, so she told her about zcoils…wish I could afford another pair..lol

    Great shoe for lower back pain relief. I have to be on my feet 10+ hrs a day, and I couldn’t do it without my zcoils

    I can walk and work a full 12+ hour shift because of Z-Coil shoes. I made frequent visits to a Podiatrist until he started talking about injections in my feet. NO WAY! So I thought I couldn’t go wrong with the 30 day money back guarantee. It took about 2 weeks but, the Plantar Fasciitis stopped, my knees and back stopped hurting and now I don’t hurt. I still get fatigued but I don’t have the horrible pain. I LOVE my Z-Coils!!

    I stand up 10 hours a day at work. These are the only shoes I wear to work. My knees and legs are less tired at the and of the day when I wear these. I’ve had them about 3 years and I’ve only replaced the insole. The rest of the shoe is as good as new.

    I love my Z-Coils, I have a hard time walking without them. If I go out for a walk and forget to put on my Z-Coils, I notice about 50 feet from the house and go back to get them. I also like them because they give me a little bit of lift in the heel height that I need because of my fused ankle. I love them!!

    Definitely great for reducing back and foot pain when you have to stand for long periods of time. Wish they offered dress shoes and sandals in white though.

    I purchased my pair of zcoil from the now defunct in San Francisco store. I only wear them when I go for my daily walk. The shoes lessen the pain in my knees. I recommend them to any one who asks.

    (verified owner):

    These shoes changed my life – dramatically increased the quality of it. I have a condition/disability similar to dropped foot (thanks to a ruptured disc) – no lift whatsoever with my left foot, so every step is jarring and painful. Z-Coils are the only footwear I’ve found that alleviates the jarring pain of every step; thus I wear them from the time I get up until I go to bed. I still walk with a limp, but it is much less pronounced. The only reasons I gave them four stars instead of five is that (a) they don’t come in half-sizes and (b) most of them seem to be made more for a male foot form versus a female’s.

    :

    I don’t know what I would do without Z Coils. I had botched bunion surgeries on both my feet and they are a mess and it is very hard for me to find comfortable shoes — almost impossible if I wear the even somewhat comfortable shoes for a great lenth of time. I can’t wear regular high heels and yet I can walk long distances in Z Coils. I can also wear Z Coils for hours and they are completely comfortable. I tried other so-called walking shoes and shoes for people with problem feet and none of them worked for me. Z Coils are the absolute best!

    “I’ve had Achilles tendinitis caused by a dose of the antibiotic “”Cipro”” in both heels going on 10 years now. At the onset I visited my doctor, who referred me to a foot specialist. I tried steroid injections with no relief, then was sent for a round of physical therapy. After eight weeks of therapy, including two or three pages of stretching excersizes to do at home, I still felt no relief. I then tried custom made orthotics with no success. My job requires me to be on my feet nine hours a day, six days a week. I was to the point that it was becoming difficult to finish a day of work. I walked with a constant limp from the pain! On the advise of another foot specialist I sought out a shoe called a “”Z Coil””.
    That was eight years ago. Four pairs later, I can say with 100% certainty that Z Coil shoes have saved my working life! I currently have three active pairs that are probably worn a total of 51 weeks a year. These shoes are the best investment in health and happiness I’ve ever made!

    I have been wearing Z-coil for over 5 years. I walk anywhere from 305 miles 4-5 times a week and do not have the knee pain I used to have wearing other shoes. They are roomy enough to place an insert in without feeling like you are walking out of your shoes.

    I have had problems with my feet for many years. No shoe keeps me out of pain more than Z-Coils. I just returned from a three week trip to England and was able to walk most of the time.

    These shoes are great! I was ready for a wheel chair because my feet hurt so bad. Inserts were no longer doing the job. Then I tried a pair of Z Coil shoes. After 2 hours of shopping you couldn’t pay me to take them off. I haven’t worn anything else since then. That was about 10 years ago and I’ve worn out 2 pair and a third is ready to replace. Right now I own 4 pair. They are the only reason I am still walking.

    Sadly I had to return the z-coils…they were clunky on my bony feet(I wear size 6 and even with the insole they were loose)…I tried them with thicker socks and wore them 1/2 day twice, but just were not comfortable. I was pleased that the company efficiently received my return, and the price of shipping for return was less than the gas and time to drive to a store in neighboring state.

    I am just amazed. My last brand name shoes ruined my back! I can now walk 3 miles with my dog and not even feel sore! Unbelievable. What a difference. Even thought my last shoes were much lighter than z-coil, my zcoil’s feel much lighter when i walk. I wish i had found these years ago, and with the 30-day trial, how can you lose? I am 72 years of age. My daughter is a pharmacist and she will be ordering soon.

    “1. In general the best shoes I have owned and I walk on cement side walks 20 miles a week . My hip and back pain is improved and these shoes are the only ones that allow me to be able to walk distances quickly and without pain. I have tried others and not bought and always come back to these. have been wearing z coils for 10 years.
    They are not for everyone. Need to be ready to feel confident in your stride,. I caution the elderly. Covering the coil helps with safety. Long grass and sand are not easy to walk in without a cover. And I do add an internal orthodic for flat feet. The arches not enough.
    2. The soles wear out quite easily. the vibrate could be better. The anti slip soles do not last long…. but not the shoe itself..Good to find a cobbler that can resole. Especially in the high heat and humidity of Hawaii. Also the glue comes apart in wet conditions. so not great in rain and mud.
    3. Replacing coil is expensive. resoling coil is better. “

    Z-coils are the only shoe I wear. I have been wearing z-coils fore 15 years. I have had painful feet for 30 years, I have been to at least 15 different doctors in that time, I have had special inserts from three different doctors, I have had injections in my heels, I had one foot operated on to loosen up the nerve in my heel, had calf muscle cut to help take tension of my heel. All that done and nothing help my pain. The last doctor asked how bad the pain was in my feet I told him I WISH he would cut my feet off, that is how bad the pain was. I seen someone wearing z-coils and they said it help there pain a lot. Since I have been wearing z-coils I have lost about 85% of my heel pain. I TELL EVERY PERSON I SEE TO TRY Z-COILS BECAUSE THEY WILL LOVE THEM!!!!!

    Whoever made Z-Coil needs to feel guilty of making such comfortable shoes….I can’t wear regular shoes anymore!!! They are a little pricey, but they last long time, and I can really tell the difference (coil) when I do strenuous activities such as running or climbing. I could not walk more than 20 minutes without any pain before finding about Z-Coil, but now I can walk for an hour with no pain. My mother also loves them and travels all over the world with Z-Coil. I am a teacher, and my students and colleagues are more interested in my shoes than what I teach….thanks to you Z-Coil!!

    I have worn the Z-Coil shoes for the last 6 years. After my back operation, regular tennis shoes just didn’t give me the support I needed. But once I purchased a pair of the Z-Coils, I can walk for miles without pain. I even wear a pair to my aerobics classes and they support me fantastically. I must admit, your company has a satisfied customer for life!!

    I love my z-coils. Sometimes I try to go without wearing them and quickly all the pain returns to my feet, knees, and lower back. I put them back on and within 2 days my pain is gone again. I know I would be on disability without my zcoils. I can live a normal life pain free. I put a lot of miles on my shoes and they wear extremely well. At least 5 to 6 yrs.for me. I’m on my 4th pair. Well worth the price. I would recommend them to anyone, and I do everyday. Thank you zcoil for making them slip resistant. I will never go back to regular street shoes again.

    “I generally do not do reviews. But for Z-Coils it’s easy. I’ve worn them at least eight years. I have two pair, but the heels split on both, so I went quite a while without them. Then I was diagnosed with cancer about a year and a half ago. This meant stays in the hospital every month. My back began to hurt and it was miserable. X-Rays showed arthritis in my lower back. Finally explaining the pain I’ve dealt with on/off since 1991. Nothing I took helped. Then I remembered my Z-Coils. I don’t get a lot on SSI, my only source of income. So I could not afford new shoes, so I ordered replacement heels. They came right away, and within two weeks I have zero pain.
    I will wear Z-Coils for the rest of my days.

    “For very important and distinct technical reasons, the Zcoils are well advanced. So much so, it would be a useless ‘chalk and cheese’ exercise to compare them to other shoe brands. One would be doing oneself a disservice by not at least trying a pair. In my case, I was plagued with supination of my right foot, a condition my Zcoils corrected instantly! One doesn’t need a foot problem to realize why these shoes are exceptional and worth a ‘go’.

    I should add, I purchased my shoes online. The build quality of the shoe and integrity of the company I found to be excellent. They stand behind their products. Their 30-day unconditional trial says it all. What does that tell you about their product’s performance? “

    :

    I bought my Z-coils more than 12 years ago and they’re still going strong with new coils. While initially expensive, the cost per mile is really low without adding the benefit tremendous pain relief. I bought them for severe knee pain and quickly reduced my prescription anti-inflammatory by half, greatly reducing cardiac risk. I had my knee replaced a couple of years ago, but still wear my Z-coils when working. If they helped so much when I really needed them, they must still reduce wear and tear on my joints, original and replacement, from walking on non-resilient concrete floors. I recommend them to everyone who asks.

    “I’ve been wearing Zcoils for a couple of years now they really work great for cushioning your steps when working on concrete floors 9 hours a day. They really made a difference for my lower back pain and my foot pain thanks so much. Your service been great except for you didn’t send what you said you’d send. Then when I contacted you, you were very helpful again but you mailed the heels to the wrong address even though you repeated the right address while we were on the phone. I’ll be home in a couple of weeks so I’ll get the heels when I get home but it would have been nice to have had them with me while I’ve been on vacation. Love the shoes.

    I wear Z-Coils at work in a hospital where I am on my feet most of my 12 hour shifts. I never have a backache, which I would have in any other shoes, and my feet seldom ache, which they certainly would in any other shoes. I do not suffer any particular orthopaedic complaints. I just believe humans are not made to walk on concrete all day long. I wear them to go farther, faster with less fatigue and to be much more comfortable doing so. Plus, I suspect I will be taller for longer as my joints, especially my spine is essentially exposed to less gravity and impact than it would other wise be. It is lower impact walking. I get lots of comments and could certainly sell Z-Colis to doctors and nurses working here in New Zealand.

    Perfect shoe for somebody on their feet 8-10 hours a day. I bought these on vacation in 2005.
    10 years later and these shoes are (mostly) still holding up. I’ve had to shoe-goo the sole a few times, and today I’m buying a new set of heels because the old ones rubber ripped. But really, getting 10 years out of 1 pair of shoes makes up for the large initial price.

    Well everything started around 3 years ago when I gain weight and I was 245 lb, I am 6’2 and my heels started to hurt a lot even when sleeping. I tried many options and nothing worked. I saw Zcoil on google and I gave it a try. The first week was difficult but after that my heel pain went away, of course I began to exercise to reduce my weight to 220 or 215 lb. This shoes are live saviors. Also, very durable after 2 years of wearing them every day for about 6 hours they still look good. I recently changed the coils because after 2 years it looses power which is normal for me.

    I am 66 years old. I Was a 5 mile a day runner for 35 years but had to stop because of torn meniscus in my left knee. Dr. said I needed arthroscopic surgery and no more running. I had no pain walking so why do surgery if it would not help me get back to running? I took a chance on the Z-coil shoes. I have now been running 3 miles a day for 4 weeks. I don’t know how long the knee will hold up but so far I have had no pain while running. I’m just taking it one day at a time but am thrilled that I don’t have any pain.

    I had a back operation 5 years ago. An older guy showed me his pair and explained them, then I bought them on the internet. I could only walk 2 blocks — I can walk forever now… I swear by these shoes – I have 5 pair…The Freedoms are my favorite. They help my toes breath. I also have the clogs. I wish more people would buy and try them. I know the price is high but…. if they have knee or hip pain… its worth it. My back pain went away. I can jump around. I ruptured a disc. They have been a blessing. About 10 people ask me about them each week….If you take of the upper portion on Z’s they last a long time!!! The only thing that wears is the heel for $60 for every 2 years!!! I really like that.

    I love these for what they do. It would be great if the shoes had covered heels standard. It would also be helpful if the design would allow side-to-side movement. I own 7 pairs of various kinds, some in multiples, For foot and heel pain, these shoes are exactly what I needed to heal me. Those things being said, I recommend these shoes to everyone who asks me about them, or who complains about foot, knee, and back pain. I have considered buying from your main competitor (Gravity Defyer) because of their heel design but have not done that yet.

    Love the shoes,The only thing I’m not fond of, is the inside curve of my foot rubs up against the inside of the shoe and leaves a blister however still very happy with them so far.

    The Z-Coil Freedom did more for me in 3 months than my custom diabetic shoes did for me in 3 years. I have been wearing these for 2 years since I was 75 years old. I bought them in March and on Labor day I won a 5K walk race! I could not do anything before I had my Z-CoiL shoes. They also relieved my back pain in addition to bad feet!

The Freedom is one of our best sellers because the fit is great. It is the standard to which all other shoes are measured and the one that fits most people instantly. The shoe is built for a normal D width but because it is a lace-up, it can be adjusted for all widths C through EE. We built the toebox (ball of the foot) to a E width to prevent irritation in this area   This shoe runs true to size so order the size that you normally are. For unknown size, measure your foot length on a ruler and use the size chart below to find your size.   This shoe is ergonomically designed with our standard great fit features: -a rounded, padded heel, - a built in orthotic with a standard arch, -a wider than normal toebox width for better fit in the toe area -a padded tongue and collar for decreased abrasion -pressure free flat lacing for a snug fit -a rocker bottom for easy mobility -conical spring in the heel for 50% impact reduction to the body Womens size conversion chart Mens size conversion chart
