    Are you kidding? I love my z-coils!!!! I first saw them at Irving’s shoe fly in York, pa and tried them on on a dare because they were so strange… This pair is my second purchase and they are the only shoes I’ll wear for walking and running. I get stopped all the time when people ask me about them. With two herniated discs, they let me continue to exercise with minimal pain.

    I’m wearing them right now in the Charlotte airport! Absolutely a five!!!

    I have been wearing Z-CoiL’s for 4-5 years. I am a nurse and work 12 hour shift that are extremely difficult on my feet and body. With the Z-Coil Liberty my back completely stopped hurting. My knees also stopped hurting. The balance and support is great. They are a little expensive but well worth the money. My first pair lasted 2 years.

    This shoe is one of my greatest conversation starters, Everywhere I go people ask me where I got them, I heard about them from my fed ex delivery driver. I would give them a five star rating for comfort as they have helped a lot with my Plantar Facitius, Before Z-CoiL I was hardly able to walk because of the pain I was experiencing, since then my pain levels have dropped considerably and I am able to work almost pain free. Most Importantly I am able to dance again. Thank you Z-CoiL.

    I have purchased new from your online site for myself and my family. We love them. My feet and an ankle hurt after yard work or walking much and turning to z-coils always alleviates any pain. Z-coils helped my son’s plantar fasciitis problems. My husband is now wearing them for his knee pain. Z-coils are great.

    I have Planter fasciitis and have a 3 level lumbar fusion, I don’t have the nagging foot and back pain like i have with other shoes. With Z-coils I am able to live an active lifestyle. Thank you Z-coil for giving me my life back !

    Went back to wearing my old (circa 2000) hikers daily due to a neuroma. For summer, I wanted a lower shoe so purchased a Liberty. On both pairs, I wish you carried half sizes. As someone who is just over a shoe size, going up to the next full size results in a bulky fit. The new shoes have a much wider (10%+) toe box than my old pair, increasing that bulky look and feel (compared to the average width I am used to). That said, the shoes are very comfortable and stop my neuroma from causing any pain. I wear them all day every day unless there is a specific occasion (garden boots in the garden, dress shoes to the theater). The toe box is padded better than any other shoe I’ve seen or had and the spring is very comfortable. Given the results, I would/will buy another pair sometime- I just wish there were other size/width options- even if only in your top 1 or 2 sellers.

    I’ve been wearing Z-Coils since 2004. In 2014 my feet started to grow at 50 something–no fallen arches, no explainable reason. I wore Z-Coils exclusively until that point, but was afraid to purchase more until my feet settled in. I was heart broken when I could no longer fit into my shoes. I did purchase a pair of Bio-Treks which I really like, but the styles are limited. I finally purchased the closeout Diamond Backs and I’m back to my Z-Coils! I love Z-Coils and tell eveyone who will listen! As soon as there is a sale on a gray Liberty, I’m on it! My wife suffers from many foot and leg ailments and she also loves her Z-Coils as well. She has two pair of Freedoms.

    It is the only shoes I wear. Quality shoe that lasts a long time. Is great for my back, and arthritis in my knees and ankles. Have been wearing them for 8 years and just hope you never go out of business.

    I was in Albuquerque NM and decided to take the time to try the z-coil shoe. Sharon, the store manager, fitted me perfectly with the Liberty style shoe. I have an implanted pain infusion pump installed for severe degenerative disc disease and can tell you the benefit of this shoe is off the chart. I can walk further distances with mineable pain. These shoes are definitely worth the price.

    There is no way I could stand up on this concrete floor without my Z-Coil.

    Nothing beats Z-Coil shoes working 12-hour shifts and running the entire time while at work. I am a nurse and have recommended these shoes to everyone I work with, and people that are just curious about them. My back and legs do not hurt even after the busiest of shifts!

    I brought these shoes on my doctors advice. I stand for 8 hours a day on cement floors and had such intense foot pain at the end of the day that I could barely walk. After a few days of wearing these shoes my foot pain is gone. Love these shoes. They are very comfortable and have made my standing on the cement floors pain free.

    I purchased the shoes to run distance. I always feel my left calf muscle ready to pull after a mile or so of running. I ran with the new shoes but still felt my calf ready to strain again. I am a physical education teacher and wear them every day. At the end of the day my feet do not ache as they do when I wear my regular running shoes. I enjoy wearing the new shoes.

    No more foot or lower back pain! Makes my job so much easier now. These shoes are worth it, trust me. You won’t regret getting them. :)

    Without these shoes I would be in trouble. Several years ago I thought I was going to have to stop working or find another job because of painful joints and back pain. That was 5-6 years ago and I am able to work up to 14 hours a day as an RN in a busy ICU. These shoes are a god send.

    I love the shoes, I just wish you had the women sizes to fit me. I wear a size twelve in women’s shoes but have always had to by the men’s size 11s. I am a walking advertisement for your company because people always stop me and ask questions about them like, are they comfortable, cost, benefits, and I sing the praises of your brand for over 13 years.

    At first walking was shaky, however I’m getting used to them!

    My recent purchase was my first on-line. I’ve always purchased from a store in Phoenix until it closed and I relocated. I was worried that this purchase would not go as smoothly. Because I was familiar with (and love) the product I took a chance and am glad I did. The fit and quality met my expectations and shipping was handled well. My only regret is that I waited so long to place my order.

    “I have been wearing ZCoils since 2002 and wear nothing else. I can’t walk comfortably without them, and could hardly walk at all when I first started wearing them, due to birth defects and back injuries. With these shoes I have my mobility back. I have worn them on trips to at least 50 other countries, and I am always asked about them, and stared at!

    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.

    Within 2 days of wearing these shoes, there was significant improvement in my foot pain. Totally worth it for me.

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
