    I was always in foot pain when walking with z-coil I am non stop.

    Could not be walking without them, and only own z coils.

    I really appreciate z-coil accommodating my request for a price adjustment based on a special that had ended at the time I placed my order. My local store closed a number of years ago due to the death of the owner. my closest store is over 90 miles away and it was great to get what I needed online w/out making the special trip

    Only two issues with z-coil, 1. the soles become disconnected from shoe proper too easily, 2. the soles of the news legend with the tiny pattern picks up so much tiny trash that I can no longer wear them directly into the house without taking them off and using a toothpick to remove all the small rocks, etc. The older tread pattern which was large with large open areas was much better in my opinion. But, my Z-Coils over the years are literally a life saver for me because I have to do an hour on the treadmill each morning without exception due to a heart issue and without my Z-Coils, it would be impossible to do so.

    A bit self conscious wearing them. Overall very satisfied. Considering getting a freedom white or legend white to wear with shorts.

    I love the shoes just wish I had the money to buy more pairs as they wear out.

  8. 5 out of 5


    This is my 4th pair in 15 years. I wouldn’t keep buying them if they weren’t a good investment.

  9. 5 out of 5


    We think it is an awesome product. Psychologically, dont think I like the closed coils, prefer the open coil system. but understand they are a bit safer. Also would like more dress or casual looks like the legend in different leather colors.

    After an accident, I could only wear Crocus until I found z coil. I can wear them all day. They take pressure off my low back, hips and knees. I have neuropathy from back issues, these shoes really help with my feet. I wish the brown hiker was brought back or maybe an all black one. Also the cowboy boot in brown or black.

    The shoes are great for walking and reducing the impact to the heel; however, I do a lot of standing and for that, they are not very comfortable. If there were better inside padding, I probably would not have returned them.

    The best!!!!

    The first time that I have any problem with them.

  14. 3 out of 5


    The shoes used to be fantastic. Now, they’re not. My first pair lasted four years, my most recent fell apart in less than four months. The heels don’t last anywhere near as long as the used to, there are weird lumps inside the shoe that are uncomfortable.

  15. 4 out of 5


    I like my zcoils but I wish you could find a way to use lighter materials. Their weight can be a hindrance

    I wish the legend came with a safety toe like it has in years past but good overall.

  17. 4 out of 5


    Wish the enclose springs held up better. Wish the screws didn’t need to be tightened so often. Other than that I love them. Sad that you don’t seem to be making them in my size anymore (8) nor are you keeping dressier styles suitable for wearing at work.

    These shoes do everything they said they would and more. I have to stand all day at work and I could not work without my z coil shoes.

    I was always in foot pain when walking. With z-coil I no longer have any foot pain, and I can walk non-stop!

    “My husband delayed having both knees replaced for 5 years wearing z-coils. He is a carpenter by trade on his feet all day long. When we bought our first z-coils after wearing them for 1 week,he stated that they had already paid for themselves due to no knee pain or back pain. They are great for wearing to amusement parks when standing in line for rides there is no pain in legs, back or feet from standing so long. We really love our Z-coils. I have had my freedom walkers for six years.”

    These shoes are absolutely wonderful!!!! The first pair lasted 5 years. I work at a casino and stand for 80 percent of my shift and could not get through that without my Z-coils! However I would like to see more styles that would go with business attire.

    My Z-coil’s have helped my knee”s and ankles.

    (verified owner):

    So far, the Legend Blacks do not seem as comfortable as my first pair, but that may be because they need some break in time.

    Most comfortable with constant walking and standing.

    I wish you have a store in Hungary too. Lots of people asking about it, every body want to try it. Some smiling about it, but I definitely got everyone’s attention. My first purchase was the black one and it really saved my back. For about 11 years now I escaped spinal surgery. Thank you very much. I wish I still have my white ones, but unfortunately some one took it. I am a nurse so you can just imagine my days with out it. I am saving for a new one but the wages in Hungary are really low. I need two full months of salary saved up for one of the white pair to buy. So I am looking for a clearance of course. Size 8. God bless all of you at Z- Coil. Keep up the good work.

    Best shoes ever….just ordered my 3 rd pair

  29. 5 out of 5


    Best shoes I’ve purchased. I used to have foot, leg and back pain. Since my Z Coil purchase, all my pain has gone away while I wear them. I still have foot pain when I’m not wearing my shoes especially in the morning. With that said, Z coil hasn’t corrected my foot pain but, it has reduced it, so I can work all day without pain.

    These were my first pair of Z-coils. I have bilateral neuropathy in my lower back and legs, and these shoes resolved it (and the occasional sciatica) completely. The only down side is that they’re quite heavy, for a pair of shoes. I have other Z-coils, and this is the heaviest pair.

    Great shoes! Can’t believe they fit my 2E wide foot!

    The way my neck and my back are I cannot wear anything else but Z-CoiL’s. I had very high chiropractic bills they wanted to fuse my neck and I wouldn’t let them do that,After I was given my first pair of Z-CoiL’s I have not worn nothing else.

    I am a Caterer of Food. I also have 3 ruptured discs in my back. I can honestly say I would not be able to do my job without my Z-CoiL shoes. At the end of the day I have very little or no pain in my back. Without Z-CoiL – the pain is unbearable. I am walking billboard for Z-CoiL. The only challenge I have had with Z-CoiL is the forefoot sole coming unglued after 4 years which I will take to a repair shoe shop.

    I am a Resident Care Aide at an assisted living facility where I walk multiple miles in my eight hour shift. I also have peripheral neuropathy, which means my feet hurt more often than they do not. Before getting my Z-Coil shoes, I tried several top brands of athletic shoes, but my feet were so sore by the end of my day that I could hardly walk up to the house from the car. These shoes have proven to be worth every cent and then some. My feet still hurt (such is the nature of neuropathy), but it’s nothing like before; I can still walk for hours after work. Huzzah!

    I was actually replacing an old pair of Z-Coils which I had for many years (when I bought my first pair, I had just seen people wearing them and decided they would be worth a try since I am on my feet all day). I would rate my old pair and this new pair a 5 out of 5. Unfortunately, there is no longer a close retail location to me, so I bought them on-line this time, which worked out well. Easy to order and fast shipping. I appreciate that.

    Have a good day!

    Had plantar fasciitis.,,,then due to the effects of medication also had my right knee start to give me serious problems. Since I have discontinued the medication and started using z-coil shoes, my terrible discomfort has pretty much ended. If I could I’d sleep in my z-coils…..very much appreciated. Thank you, Wendy Robson

    If I could I would rate your shoes a 10!
    I have been wearing Z Coils for over 10 years. I’m a hairdresser and standing on my feet all day cause me to get heel spurs and I was in a lot of pain. Since I heard about the Z Coil shoe I decided to try it I have had no more pain. Plus my back does not hurt after a long day at work either! As long as I have a job standing I will ALWAYS WEAR Z COILS!
    Thank you so much

    I love Z-Coils. I have much less pain in my back for the last 2 years since using Z-CoiL. I use the all leather legend style.

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 Womens size conversion chart Mens size conversion chart
