    The sharp shooting pain up my heel stopped within a week of wearing the shoes at work.even though they are composite toe if I catch a 1/2 off sale I would get a pair for street wear.

    I bought the outback because you stopped making the legend with composite toe. I do not like shoes up over my ankles but took a chance on the outback. I like Z-coil shoes but will most likely look for something else when the outback hikers wear out.

    The Legend never was comfortable, the Freedom were great, still breaking in the Outback.

    initially i bought size 37, it fit quite well, but I thought I should take 38 but as it turns out it is slightly big for me, so it is a bit clumsy.

    Our whole family wears ZCoils and has for many years..I still walk five miles a day and know I would not be without my coils..while I trade off for something more fashionable after walks my son wears his all day at work.

    Thank you I have had one pair of Z Coils for several years and use them on my treadmill but now with the Outback’s I use these for hiking.

    At first I wasn’t sure what to expect but now if I wear another pair of shoes even for a day I can hardly wait to get the Z-Coils back on. It really makes a difference in how my feet and legs feel during the day and when I get home at night. I own a construction/concrete sawing business and I am on my feet every day and did not know how much my legs, feet and back hurt till I started wearing these shoes. People make fun of them but I don’t care they make me feel much better.

    I was having a terrible time with my hips, lower back, and heels. The Z coils have made a tremendous improvement in ALL areas. Thank you so much!!

    “I suffered terribly from plantar fasciitis for about three years. I tried everything including foam inserts, Dr. Scholls inserts,
    and custom Good Feet inserts. Nothing permanently solved my pain problem until I tried Z Coil shoes. After spending several thousands of dollars on custom inserts, I ordered three different pairs and first started wearing the Outback Hikers for my work. I’m on my feet for about 8 hours a day on a cement floor. It took about a week to “”break in “” these shoes but I loved them. My plantar fasciitis slowly started to disappear and after about 5 weeks of wearing my Z Coils, I was completely pain free! They’re well worth the money and now, I won’t wear anything else!

    Thank you Z Coil!

    I recently ordered 2 pairs online and paid extra for 2-3 day delivery. They arrived 10 days later. The outback already had a heal break after 2 weeks of wear and the Toffler in the same size didn’t remotely fit, so I now get to spend more money mailing them back. And wait another 10 days to get replacements in the mail. The customer service guy was very friendly and knowledgeable, and reversed the $7.95 shipping fee from the original order.

    The boots in same size fit perfectly while the shoes w/steel toes are just a bit snug. Being leather, the shoes are fitting better each time I wear them. As Chief Nursing Officer, I am on my feet 10-12 hours or more everyday and I LOVE my Z-Coils. My hips, back, knees, and poor aching feet are thanking you!

    I have had my Desert Hiker CT for nearly 22 months and they have held up great under everything I put them through.

    They are very comfortable and I am still trying them out , but they seem to be working well. standing on concrete all day is hard on the legs and feet but these make it painless so far. As far as trying to get an answer online from z-coil, well that was very bad. I got an answer 8 days later so I would recommend calling with any questions.

    Very comfortable helps a great deal when I stand on concrete floors all day. The heals do occasionally come loose and click slightly, so I just tighten them back up and I’m good to go.

    “Great Shoes- Saved my husbands life. He’s able to stand all day at work. They are the best! And fast shipping!

    “I rave about these shoes to everyone! These shoes are amazing! My kness back and feet , are much happier now,
    I would like it if you made more styles with the spring covered. For work the spring had to be covered so I chose the hikers. They get a little arm I live in the south. But its worth it. You must have the right idea. My son broke his leg and foot skim boarding and I noticed his Orthopedic surgeon had on these Z-coils! I said, I said hey I have those shoes! He replied they’re the best!”

    Before finding Z-coil I could not walk after being on my feet all day on concrete. I would hobble in pain and could hardly walk when I got home and took my shoes off. I swear people at work could see the agony I was in and noticed the difference when I started wearing ZCoils. For work its the only thing I’ll wear because they work for me!

    I would be in daily misery at work if not for z-coil shoes, in fact I’m not so sure I would even still have my job if not for z-coils.

    I have been wearing z-coils for more than 12 yrs…. I started out with the hiking boots and then got my first pair of steel…I have many bone issues with my back neck knees and feet…The z-coils alleviate most of the pain…..I chose to wear my steel toe hiking boots over my fancy alligator and snake because they are more comfortable….My steel toes are more comfortable than any shoe I have ever worn…..

    Z-Coil shoes have made the difference between tired feet and tired/aching feet at the end of the day. I’ve tried a lot of work boots in my career and these are the best by far. In my industry, the coil is required to be covered. My only complaint is that the coil cover doesn’t seem to hold up and needs to be replaced at $79.95 each time you order. I would still recommend these shoes above others.

    The shoes feel awesome they hurt my back at first .. Being that you stand higher and upright but boy my feet feel good… I also walk faster… Cause of the coils in shoes.

    I really love this new style, it fits very well and is one of the most comfortable boots I have, I have the other Outback Hikers as well but I prefer these over those. I also like the arch support they provide. They relieve my foot pain every time I put them on, great product Thank You Z-CoiL!

    I work on my feet nearly everyday – most often in industrial and construction zones.
    I not as young as I used to be and every little bit of foot stability and support helps.
    So far, Zcoils have the edge in this market for now.

The Outback hiker was built specifically for those requesting ankle support. 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 -high top ankle support Womens size conversion chart Mens size conversion chart
