    I would love to see a Purple and violet with gray trim in a shoe.
    It’ would love to see a mid to calf…. and a knee
    Lace up and a zipper on the side for easy take off.
    I have been wearing Z-Coils for years…Love them they help with Plantar fasciitis and my back pain. I would recommend to everyone that ask me what they do.

    Excellent choice if you stand on your feet all day. I have plantar fasciitis and these are the only shoes that have helped me with this issue.

    “I have battled sciatica all my adult (and some of my teen) life. Recently I was also diagnosed with a 70% degenerated L-Spine disc, a bulging L-Spine disc and a torn L-Spine disc. I was having pain and unable to stand up straight to walk and sitting was out of the question. Being a nurse, and constantly on the go, this was not acceptable for me. My physician suggested a walking epidural, which I am definitely not ready for (more so on an emotional level, I think), and prescribed me pain medication. For approximately two months, I was taking ibuprofen and pain medication every day just to get through the day and be able to rest at night. Taking medication every day just to perform activities of daily living with less pain is not truly living. After much research, I decided to try out Z-Coil shoes; with a 30-day money back guarantee, who could pass it up?! After two days of wearing my Z-Coils, I was able to stand up straight and perform my job duties without pain. After a week, I was able to literally run around with my children again! I am now pain medication free and able to perform my job duties and, most importantly, be the wife and mom my family deserves!

    As a side note (not part of my review of the shoes themself): I had fantastic customer service and actually was sent coils for my husband’s shoes with wedges because he walks on the outsides of his feet. I did contact CS to inquire about wedges and glue to put into my shoe coils as well and was told they would be sent, but have not received them. Also, one of my husband’s wedges came unglued and is no longer on his coil. We will be traveling near a retailer soon and will likely stop in to have them assess if we need changes to our Z-coils. I truly wish there were more retailers and Z-Coil specialists (especially near us) because then we would have been able to benefit even more from the shoe. I will say, overall, I am very much impressed with Z-coil and staff and am spreading word about our military post. “

    I was very surprised at how quickly they came in the mail and I love how easy the coils are to change. Thank goodness I didn’t have to buy a whole new shoe! I have chronic back pain and these shoes help to relieve my daily pain from arthritis and scoliosis. Thank you!!!

    I do lots of walking and have developed issues in my toe box and in the area below my toes when doing power walking or on my feet all day over the last 10 years. I’m very happy overall with the Freedom Fushia/Grey combo. They are still a bit wide for my narrow feet, but I’m hoping to find a Z-Coil retailer who can tweak this. I hope that Z-Coil will continue to add more fashion colors and feminine styles! I also love my matching fushia coil! I get lots of compliments when power walking and my feet are much happier now too!

    These shoes did relieve my pain but they are heavy and the coil tends to get rapped up in tubing at work. I felt like I was trudging down the hall and it was difficult wearing them for 12+ hours.

    z coil helps me with bunions and heel pain. Need to be fitted for your need and I need my coils to be turned to help with bunions. Coils are for different for weight of the person

    “3 pair of Z-CoiL now and I’ve like every pair, I step very hard on my heels and it really gives me the relief I need so my heals are not as sore. Glad to see you were still in business and thank you for the socks I really like them. Only complaint is I paid for 3 day shipping and got them in 6 days. Only think that matter about that is I just wànted that fast cause my feet hurt. Have a great day!

    Z-Coils are my all time favorite comfort footwear, especially the roomy toe box. The rubber sole and spring is crucial to the impact reduction and the amazing built-in arch supports are exactly what I need for my flat feet and over-pronation correction. I am eagerly awaiting NEW DRESSY/FUNKY/FLY styles and colors. How about a cute leather ankle boot in Olive, Navy, Brown, Grey or Taupe, perhaps with a closed heel & toe for the Fall/Winter and an open-toe/heel, open sides for the Spring/Summer????? Give us some strappy, provocative styles. I would like to volunteer to wear your new prototypes for advertisement and FEEDBACK. Thanks for asking & listening to my OPINION.

    I’ve worn Z-Coils since I had back surgery in 2006, and I rarely wear any other kind of shoe. I never have any foot or back pain if I’ve been wearing my Z-Coils! Love them!

    I put 5-6 miles a night shift in the ER on my feet and z-coils have helped with the heal pain I had been experiencing. Love mine

    They’ve saved my knees/hips/back. I can run 5 miles 3x/week wearing my z-coil Freedoms (and knee braces) after arthroscopic surgery in both knees in 1996 & 2000. I wear them hiking (with the curtain around the coils). I do wish that you offered more colors, eg., saddle brown for the sandals. I now live in VT, and get lots of questions about my Z-coils. There should be a franchise here in VT!

    I have been wearing the Freedom Z-Coil shoes for over 10 years – they are wonderful for walking long distances. They have protected my knees from further orthopedic problems. Also – I used to get Achilles heel problems – and now I never do – and I walk 2 to 4 miles a day!

    Fabulous company to offer the 30 day wearing trial! I bought the Freedom fushia Z coil in hopes of getting relief from my plantar fasciitis. I also have a bone spur on my heel. The shoes are very comfy and very supportive but I continued to have pain at the end of the day, so I decided to return them, I couldn’t justify the expense for something that didn’t relieve my pain. I do see that they are beneficial to many but not for my horrible heel spur. My hunt for pain free walking continues. Again, I appreciate the trial because these shoes are a rather big investment for me, and I wouldn’t have ordered them if I couldn’t send them back if I changed my mind.

    I am sure I would not be able to walk and keep up with my job if it weren’t for Z coils. I wear nothing else. My husband has PAD and has a stent in his left leg that failed. I can see the visible difference in the way he walks and has his Z Coils on, as opposed to any other shoe he wears. I am a firm believer. Thanks

    I have had plantar fasciitis for 30 years and got my first pair of zcoils 5 years ago, after one month of wearing them, I no longer woke up in the middle of the night with my heels throbbing and I am on my feet daily.

    I have been suffering from planter fasciitis for the better part of a year. I am a nurse that works twelve hour shifts. At the end of my day I would limp to my car. A couple of months ago I noticed a coworker with the funny shoes with the springs. After speaking with her about them, I found out the she too had PF and had worn the Z-coil shoes for about 7 years. To my advantage and skepticism, I was able to borrow an extra pair of hers. From the first day that I wore them I noticed a dramatic difference. No more limping tomy car! I now have my own pair and can’t imagine a work day without them!

  31. 5 out of 5

    (verified owner):

    I was looking for something comfortable to wear out and about that would not cause pain in my heels due to PF. They were a bit more pricey than the typical shoe–although being I could test them for a month, wearing them anywhere and everywhere (vs. indoors only) was intriguing –and nothing to loose-what company offers that (no one ). I didn’t know a single company that would allow (test) wearing everywhere —-until now. W-O-W. all I can say. Best place to “test” them is a big event such as the home show and walking on concrete for hours. Typically after hrs. on hard flooring.. means major pain for me once home. Although I still do have some pain at the end of the day, after wearing Z-Coil, my recovery time the following day (after hrs. of concrete walking) is so much better than with any shoe I have ever worn. (I’ve tried quite a few.) And the Freedom Fuchsia-Gray–such a great color! They are a little heavier than most athletic shoes, although was expected, and with time not noticed much. Yes–I would recommend. Yes…I would purchase again. No…I rarely do reviews..this was an exception for a shoe that really works. Yes…I am asked about my “high tech” shoes…every single time I wear them. In the short time I have had…if only I had a nickel for all the folks that have shown interest and sent to the Z-Coil website……W-O-W.

    Quality of shoes does vary. And the pair I wear now, which I’ve really liked, were the fuchsia made in Korea. I owned a Freedom gray pair years ago that were never comfortable. I tried wearing the shoes without an orthopedic. But now I include one and sometimes even put gel pads in the ball of the foot where there is not enough cushioning. I believe older people have less padding on the soles of their feet. Z-Coils lack that.

    “For a first-time purchaser I wish that I’d had a physical store to visit, with someone who could have helped in fitting them better to me. The instructions in the box just don’t tell us enough about how to fix a pronated foot. It says something about putting something in an arch, but the only piece of foam that was given to us was one that fixed the half-size and I used it for that. I know from visiting various running stores that I have a pronate problem, but I don’t know how to fix that on my own shoes. Your online maps are difficult in helping us locate any stores near us. It would be good to be able to better pinpoint physical stores.
    These shoes are big and clunky, and for that reason I don’t like to wear them as often as I should. For the very short time that I have used them, they have helped alleviate knee and foot pain. “

    I love my new shoes and will try another pair. I would rate 5 except they are just too wide for me. I need more ankle support that I could normally get by lacing through the extra holes on either side. I’d also like to see a ladies ankle boot option. This is an amazing shoe and I’d love to have more fashionable options for the office.

    Haven’t found the perfect adjustment yet, but still trying. They feel heavy on my feet. I wear them for half a nursing shift then change out. I want to love these shoes so I’m not giving up on them. I will keep turning the heels until it feels right.

    I have been wearing zcoils for almost 5 years now. They were instrumental in the healing process when I severely injured my back. I love them! What I don’t love is that most of the women’s styles do not come in size 11. It’s a real bummer!

    I have severe Plantar Fasciitis I had suffered from it for over 5 yrs. With 1 year spending 5 months in a air boot because I couldn’t walk on that foot,I have not had to use my air boot since the first time I put these on. I bought my first pair in November 2014 and that is all I wear.

    I have been wearing Z-CoiL’s since 1995, shortly after they started and was one of the original “shareholders”. I have walked in thirteen 60 Mile 3 Day Breast Cancer walks over the years and five miles per day, five days a week, all in Z-Coils. I love these shoes! When I walk in other sneakers for any extended period of time (a day!), my back and knees always hurt and I immediately switch back to my Z’s. I recommend them to everyone who asks what in the world I have on my feet.

    I love the Fuschia one, please make it in a Women’s 11!

    Thank goodness the Freedom is back!!! I wore this model for 2-3 years and loved them! After my Z-CoiL’s wore out I bought $500 custom orthotics thinking this would work – wrong. The orthotics ruined my feet. I am back in my trusty Freedom’s. The Freedom is five stars.

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
