    I have several friends that have them. I LOVE my new shoes. I am a physical education teacher and I am on my feet all day. I cannot tell you how pleased I am with these shoes.

    I work in a factory on cement all day. My heels and ankles would hurt so bad by the end of the week l could barely walk. I’d take pain killers and soak my feet but that was only temporary relief. Zcoils solved that. My feet get a little tired at the end of the day but nothing like they used to. I don’t think l could do my job without them.

    “Countless other “”footwear”” intended to aid back and leg discomforts proved to be mostly failures in the “promise and product”.
    Along came Z-Coil… and my health, comfort and mobility has changed dramatically. I am always eager to recommend the shoes because I am NEVER in doubt as to shoe’s quality, function and the company that stands behind it. Good Job!! Purchasing is a snap. Phone or online. Customer service and return policy is second-to-none! Repeat:Second to None! Keep up the good work… what a treat to do business with you.”

    “First took a bit of getting used to not used to being so tall and bouncy.
    Then the 2nd week I put the 1/2 size adjustment in (read the instructions first -ha ha )
    and they really helped with the pain. I can put my foot on the ground in the morning now -yeah !
    Considering buying another pair now to alternate days .”

    I have been wearing z-coil since 1999 – and they have kept me up and moving better than any orthopedic shoe I tried. These shoes are also much more comfortable and provide support to my ankles, knees, and hips. I highly recommend them to everyone has foot, knee, hip, or back pain.

    The z-coil shoes makes it less difficult for me to get around. I wouldn’t be able to do much without them.

    “I have flat feet and the Liberty shoes are a great fit. I can put them on and go. Other styles i need to use shoe trees and widen the toe box don’t ever let go of the Liberty style:).

    I crushed both heels in 1986. I tried every shoe I could find because the orthodics were so heavy that they were causing additional damage to my knees and hips. One of the nurses at the doctors office suggested I try z-coil and I have been wearing only them ever since I bought my first pair in 1999.

    I love Z-Coils. I have tossed all of my other shoes and will wear nothing else.

    Love both pair of my Z-Coil. I stand 10 hours a day at work and they provide me with relief from tired legs.

    I have a bone spur and a degenerate joint in my big toe, I love these shoes. I could not work without them. I have been wearing them for about 15 years. It is great to be able to order them on line now.

    Before z-coils my feet would hurt and burn so bad that after a 10 hour day I had to sit in a chair for about 30 minutes just to get them to calm down. I just love these shoes.

    I am on my feet on hard floors for 8 hrs several days a week.This wouldn’t be possible without these shoes.

    “I have had my liberty shoes for over 2 yrs and use them daily around the house and wear my freedoms for all else. The only bad part is sole on the heel below the spring it not made for walking on gravel so you have to order rugged ones.

    Z-coil shoes are very comfortable and great support. I have hip and back problems and they have really helped me.

    Liberty brand fit the best – love the side breathing areas which accommodates the little toe – wider toe box
    i started with Legend and didn’t know there was a Liberty shoe. I saw it on line and decided to try it
    much better fit for me.

    I have lost all cartilage in right knee and beginning to have problems with left. Able to walk and even hike in the Guadalupe Mountains of Texas with my Z-coils.

    Z-Coil shoes absolutely saved my life. I had a botched bunion surgery many years ago that made it so I almost never can find comfortable shoes, and since I discovered Z-Coil it has changed everything. They are the best things ever. I cannot wear regular high or even somewhat high heels, and yet I walk a couple miles a day in my Z-Coils that have a somewhat high heel and they are fabulous!

    I really like the easier walking for my knees so much that I actually wore the soles of my sneakers out and had to replace them! Thanks for helping me hike again.

    I have 7 pairs of Z-coils shoes, but this is the best shoes I ever have.

The Liberty is one of our standard general use shoes. It runs slightly wider than our Freedom Classics. The shoe is built for a normal E 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
