    Because of my flat feet, I wore cowboy boots for over 40 years. I will walk out of any shoe, including z-Coils that don’t have a collar around the top of the shoe. Because of that collar I now wear nothing but Z-Coils.

    I have been wearing Z Coil for years..before purchasing Z Coil my feet would hurt so bad after being on then for 8 hours at work ,i would have to go home and prop them up for hour before i could enjoy my evening. With Z Coil i can leave work and go shopping or any where i need to go without pain and sore feet. Z Coil has great arches in them. I have had strangers ask about my shoes and i always tell them how great my shoe are and i tell them the name of the shoes and the web site where they can go to check them out. Another thing i like about Z Coil is the shoes hold up well. I wear my shoes forty hours a week and i don’t have to replace them for 2 years.

    I have purchased many z-coils over the years.The last 2 pair have had the enclosed heels fail quickly.The foam absorbs water like a sponge with the foam inserts.The foam quickly peels away from the rubber on the newest ones.I have to keep using open heels but paid extra for enclosed.Wasted money.The company told me the shoes are only made for” light walking”??Whatever that is.

    I love my z-coil shoes! I have been wearing z-coils for 5 years because I prefer to stand and work on my computer versus sitting all day – which my back can’t take. Wearing z-coil shoes allows me to be on my feet all day, whether I’m at work, at home, or even shopping. My legs and feet feel great and when I do get tired, sitting for a few minutes is all the break I need.

    A Dr. I worked with 10 yrs ago, told me of these shoes. I have a lot of foot pain/ issues going on and was told I would need surgey. I have been wearing Z Coils for 9 yrs now. This shoe has kept me from having foot and ankle surgery, these shoes have relieved not only my foot pain and issues, but my knees and back do not hurt after long hours of work where as a Nurse I am on my feet most of the day. Thank You Z Coil for such a great shoe!

    I have had my z coils for four months now and I just HAD to give an update. These shoes have literally given me a new lease on life. Before buying these shoes I was so exhausted and tired after work all I could do was sit. Now, nearly five months later, my foot pain is completely gone and I have much more energy! I’ve even lost 10lbs because I now have the energy to work out again! I love these shoes so much I tell EVERYONE I can! If you work in your feet all day don’t think twice! You MUST buy these shoes because they will literally save your life like they have mine!!!!!!!

    These shoes have afforded me with the ability to stand thru a 10 hour day with little or no foot and back pain

    (verified owner):

    I have flat feet, and normally can’t wear low cut shoes. I wore cowboy boots for over 35 years because of my flat feet. When I was introduced to the Z-Coil shoe, I was skeptical at first. Then, I was told the shoes had a collar around the top. I tried on a pair, and was sold. I couldn’t wear the Z-Coils to work, because they just didn’t fit the office environment. Since I’m retired, I wear nothing else.
    As an aside, ask Al how important the collar is to me. When they introduced the dress black, it had no collar and Al got me to try on a pair, over my objections. I walked out of the shoes within 15 ft. This happened at the State Fair one year. I don’t know if he will remember or not.

    I love the shoes they get a lot of attention and the bounce back when you walk. I love them but wish i would have bought them one size bigger because they are made small because of the dip in the shoe

    I work as a bailiff in a court house and am on my feet all day. My wife suggested I try a pair of these for work. After wearing these I come home at the end of the day and have no leg or hip pain. I do a lot of walking, over 10 miles a day and wearing these shoes make it feel like walking on water . I will be purchasing a pair of sandals for summer.

    I’ve worked in sales for over 20 years. Due to the nature of my job I began to develop planter fasciitis and have been desperate for some relief. I saw people with zcoil shoes on asked about them. Everyone I spoke with raved about about these shoes. I finally decided to buy my own pair. I thought since there was a 30 day money back guarantee I had nothing to loose. All I have to say is WOW!!!! These shoes really do live up to the hype. My pain was gone after 2 days!!!!!! These shoes are simply miraculous, and I’m beyond grateful that I tried them. Thank you for making a product that actually cures foot pain!

    These shoes wear well and are super comfortable! I have a severe case of plantar fasciitis and they have helped more than anything else!

    My legs have always been a weak point for me. I’ve always felt pain from muscles and tendons. I was diagnosed with sciatica and plantar fasciitis. I felt limited and I would always be in pain when I walked. Then a friend convinced me to try Zcoils, even though I thought they were “funny looking.” But once I tried them on an took a few steps I fell in love. I enjoy it when people stop me in the street to ask me about my shoes. These shoes have kept me active and on the go.

    When I walked in to the shop 7 years ago, my back was killing me & my knees were so sore. I put the pair of shoes on and the pain went away! It is a miracle how these things work. My other 2 pair have worn out now, so I bought this new one. Three weeks ago, I had such bad pain in my knee, that I went to dr & then had an MRI, to find I have a torn meniscus, In the mean time, I ordered this new pair of shoes, just thinking that the other 2 had worn out so much, they were not working right. Another miracle happened. I got the shoes a few days ago & now the pain is all gone in that knee! Supposedly the meniscus is still torn, but I don’t have pain! I’m not sure how they do it, but I don’t care. I love these shoes!

    I have become something of a Z-Coil evangelist after finding incredible pain relief wearing the shoes. I have ankylosing spondylitis, degenerative disk disease and fibromyalgia so constant pain of one sort or another makes walking and standing difficult and tiring. After wearing the shoes for less than a week, I experienced a significant reduction in hip flexor pain and was able to walk with a more even stride. The shoes provided immediate relief of foot pain, and I find that even in the early morning when my feet hurt the most, I can walk easily if wearing my Z-coils. I got my husband to wear the workboots at his job as a conventional machinist, and he told me his low back pain vanished even after one day on the job. I’ve purchased pairs for my brother and sister in law, and frankly am overjoyed at how much mobility I have wearing these shoes. My rheumatologist recently commented on how well designed the arch support looked, and he was very glad to hear about my improved mobility and reduced pain. I highly recommend these shoes and wear them every day. Thank you, Z-Coil!

    I love the footwear, however, I can feel the cut off from the shoe and the heel. I don’t know how to adjust them so I don’t wear them as much as I would like. If there is someone who can teach me how to adjust them this would be great. Do you have a You Tube on this? Thank you.

    I’m on my feet quite a bit at work. I bought a pair of of another well known brand that I was able to wear for a whopping 20 working days. I have one pair of the Z-Walkers (discontinued) that is over 6 years old, I swap them out every other day to allow them to dry. The only thing they have needed is occasional tune up, new laces and inserts, one new heel. I get asked about them all the time. I wish there were more dealers so I could try on or test others.

    This my 4th pair. Allowed me to keep functional with my initial plantar fasciitis and subsequently with low back pain and then ankle pain. I recommend it to my patients. I had tried arch supports and steroid injections but they provided only limited relief. The Z-coil’s let me work on my feet for hours. Although not a cure and not pain free, they were the best alternative for sustained functional ability.

    I am a food server in Las Vegas, I have plantar faciitis in both my feet. I went to the Doc he said surgery, and 6 or more weeks out of work (lots’ of &&&&&). It was obvious to all the people around me I was in excruciating pain,one of our guests told me about Z-Coil. I found a non slip pair (not meny to choose from), they were more than I expected but better then the alternetive. Three other ladys at word have bought a pair.These shoes have saved our feet.

    It is a very good shoe, however, 2 points; It is a heavy shoe and a very expensive shoe, if these two things could change this shoe would be my one and only choice of shoe

    I have ankylosing spondylitis and have constant pain in my left hip flexors and left heel/foot. I walk with a considerable limp and have suffered through all sorts of therapies to improve it over the last 4 years. Once I bought my first pair of Zcoils, relief was at hand. It took me about 5 days to adjust to the suspension and balance the shoes offered me. After that, I was not only able to walk with very little limp and reduced foot pain but my constant hip flexor spasms relaxed and my range of motion improved tremendously. Because my pelvis is tilted so that my right leg is slightly shorter, the equalizing effect of the coils relieved the pressure on my left side. I have three pairs of Zcoils now, and my partner likewise found nearly instant pain relief in his lower back and feet when switching to a Z-coil work boot. I am grateful!

    A couple of weeks ago, while working my feet hurt so bad, I could hardly walk when I got off of work, I work in retail as a grocery store checker ad stand in one place for 7 and 1/2 hours a day, 5 days a week. I went to the Z Coil store and bought them, when I tried them on I felt almost immediate relief of my debilitating foot pain, I have only wore them for 2 weeks and my pain is almost half of what I did have, I would recommend these shoes to anyone having foot pain.

    My back pain is gone when I wear them. I put on a pair of my other shoes which are almost new and my back pain comes back. I am a car salesman so I do lots of walking on my feet all day. Everyone at work are interested since most of them are having problems. My doctor wanted to know how they were, just talked with him yesterday he said he is going to tell patients about them. I couldn’t hardly believe how fast they changed my life. I had days I wanted to cry I was in so much pain but not anymore. Thank you. Jerry.

    When I got my first pair I worked in retail and was on my feet all the time. I weighed 275lbs and my legs and feet were killing me by the middle of every shift. After wearing my z-coils the first day, my legs and feet were fine! Then the next day, then the next! I found that it took several long shifts to even begin to wear me out. It was amazing! I refuse to wear anything else, except my dress shoes on Sunday. If Z-coil ever makes a dress shoe, I’ll be the first in line to buy a pair!

    I broke all the bones across my right ankle in 1988, and have terrible arthritis and pain every day. I wanted a pair of shoes so I could walk my dog and not have to sit and cry with pain and waste the rest of the day. The first time I put them on I was able to walk the dog and had no problems! Amazing and grateful for these shoes! They are not the most attractive things to wear but I do not care because for once I am pain free. I highly recommend Z-coils for anyone with pain like mine!

    As a restaurant manager I spend 10-12 hours a day on my feet. After a long week my feet would hurt so bad it was hard to walk. My Z-CoiL’s changed all that. After wearing them for only a week my foot pain was gone! I will not wear any other shoe for work ever again.

  46. 5 out of 5


    I strut like a turkey with Z-CoiL. First time I have walked upright in years. I have worn for 5 years. Just walking to store – I’m at a full gallop, never consider sitting down. I explain Z-Coil to people from top to bottom – and recommend them. When you first start wearing you use new muscles you don’t use in flat shoes so you might get a little sore – but it goes away. You will not want to wear anything else. Its best this is wear as often as you can. I would rate them a 6 out of 5.

    Okay, I must start from the beginning. I am a professional chef and working in this industry is constant standing on hard surfaces for countless hours a day. Well that can get overwhelming because I suffer from my feet being very tired at the end of the day. I know within the past few years that had taken a toll on not only my feet but my legs and also my back. I have spent quite a few dollars on trying to find the perfect comfortable shoe. Within in the last year I started suffering from the bottom of my heel/foot hurting. It was liking a burning in the bottom of my foot to where it would not allow me to stand as long. Did not like that especially being in the field that I am in. So me and my fiancé went on a hunt for some more shoes and we came across a store located here in va beach that sold z-coils. Went I had the experience of my life. They explained quitea bit to me that I didn’t know about my feet. Measured my feet, did a scan on my feet and told me what was good and what would help me. Then they let me try on some Z-coils and that forever changed my life.went home talked it over with the Mr. and we decided to make the purchas, but when I went back to get the shoes the shoe store was close. So that is when I had to order off lineand it has CHANGED MY LIFE! My feet, legs heels or back does not hurt any longer. I wear my shoes all the time. I don’t want to take them off! This I can say is one of the best purchases I have no regrets about. I even try to put my shoes on when I attend church. My fiancé says baby, you can’t continue to wear those shoes all the time. They were only supposed to be my kitchen shoes, but I have made them my everyday shoe. I wear them to the gym, when I’m walking, church meeting. I can’t say thank you enough.

    Great shoes. I have worn them for 2-3 mile walks on even and uneven surfaces for three years. My walking friends would laugh because I would sound like a small pony going down the street. I have recently purchased new Z-CoiL’s, but my friends now miss the familiar “clip-clop” sound!

    So, it’s been a year since I bought these shoes. Comfort is 5 stars, slip resistance to oil and water would be 2 stars. I work on my feet 10+ hours a day. My previous footware was Shape-Ups 3 years before these. No shoe or insert could relieve my heal pain besides the Shape-Ups. When I couldn’t find them anywhere after they were discontinued I went strait for Z-Coils. These were just a hair less comfortable then the shape-ups just because how Shape-Ups keep all the pressure on your arch. But non the less, I could work on my feet all day, even 15 hours with no foot pain. Leg pain was the same. The first thing that stood out was the slip resistance. It’s not the greatest compared to Shoes For Crews or Sketchers, and that is when the tread is new. After a year, the tread is completely gone and the coil has worn through the heal. This is from working on a slightly treaded floor. The most I walk outside is from my door to the car. All 4 pairs of Shape-Ups had no tread wear after a year and even was walking partly home. Only reason I had to replace the shoes was the cushioning would blow out. So, I still love Z-Coils. But as for these slip resistant versions, I can’t believe the performance of the rubber. It is not worth the price tag.

    I have been wearing the Legend and Z-Walker for 5 years. My Doctor was wearing them and told me it was the only way she could stand for 12 hour shifts. I am a hair dresser and also work long shifts. I absolutely Love my Z-CoiL’s. They are so easy on my feet and back when I stand all day. This is the only product I wear. They are also a great conversation piece – people are so amazed. Everyone should have the opportunity to try this product. I bought mine from shoe dealer in Georgia.

    I bought my first pair in 2006 . The white nursing shoes . In 2011 I was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis . So I bought my second pair. The black slip resistant legend. I placed my orthotic pad inside started wearing them and a miracle happened, my heel pain and that tired foot feeling dissipated . I love my shoes . I tell all my co- workers it’s like walking on air.

    My feet and body love these shoes. I actually have very little pain because of my z-coils. I have artificial hips, arthritis in my feet and mild case of plantar fasciitis in both feet. My old pair of smooth leather dress work shoes still take me through standing work days. They have lasted for more than seven years, I love to put them on and hate to remove them. Never needed to replace anything, but the shoemaker had to re glue them on occasion due to very extreme wear and standing in lots of water… Once a month I would have them professionally polished keeping them shinning… I noticed the shoes now come in a beautiful grain leather. Love the safety slip resistant feature. Well, I am right now going to buy my next new pair, and if I GET ANOTHER SEVEN YEARS PLUS FROM THEM, I’ll feel they paid for themselves with change left over.
    Thanks Z-COIL for the best shoes I ever worked in. I also own and wear two pairs of sandals.

    I have been wearing the original Z-Walkers for 7 years, which are now called the Legend. These are very durable. I wore my first pair for 5 years. My second pair which I have worn for 2 years at work, I plan to use only at home. I just bought my third pair for work. The front out sole does not wear out, but I have replaced the coil/pad. My feet can be in screaming pain – and I get INSTANT relief with my Z-CoiL’s. I also own a pair of the boots.

Add a review

The Legend is our standard great fit work shoe. 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
-a rocker bottom for easy mobility
-conical spring in the heel for 50% impact reduction to the body
