    I love the Sofia. I had a problem with my knee. I hurt so bad I was nearly in tears for months. Z-Coils were recommended by my doctor but I waited over two years to purchase. Now it is all I can wear. It was like a miracle from the first day – my pain is completely gone. I even wore these during my wedding. If I take them off my knee hurts again. Z-Coils really activate my body allowing me to be very active. People think I am 30 years younger than I am – due to my shoes. Now I need a Z-Coil for the shower and a dressy boot.

    I LOVE all my z-coils. I first saw them at a national conference, when an entire exhibitor group were all wearing various styles of z-coils. My feet were aching from all the walking and one of the girls was wearing clogs, slipped them off and said to try them. I did and instantly, no hurting feet! I have the Sofia. I have black but for a little while, they made navy blue mary janes. I love the fact that there is a color besides BLACK! We need more navy blues, browns and even maroon colored shoes.
    It’s nice the tennis shoes are white and another color, but we need other colors, too.
    I have black and tan sandals, navy and black mary janes, a black leather closed shoe, white and blue tennis shoes and the work boot (no steel toe). All the shoes have been remarkable, for no pain! Only the work boots were made horribly! I’ll tell about them in the boot review. Everything else gets a solid 5 stars! Yea!!!!!

    This is my 4th pair of Z-Coils. As I nurse, i have to walk ALOT! After a full day’s work I don’t have to worry about my back or legs hurting when I use my Z-Coils. And when I’m teaching, these are the best any way you look at it. Wouldn’t trade in my Z-Coils for anything. These are GREAT!

    I had all kinds of foot trouble. Doctor says I have nerve damage similar to carpal tunnel syndrome. I have been wearing Z-CoiL’s for years and I have just about every pair they make. The Mary-Jane is one of my favorites. I could only walk about 1/4 mile per day before Z-CoiL, and now I walk 5 miles per day. These are the only shoes I wear. I also wear them exclusively at my hospital where I work as an RN. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Z-CoiL.

    I wear Z-Coils daily at work and I recently purchased a more dressy, Mary Jane-type and ordered the heel enclosure. I wear them for business, dress occasions where I am going to be doing more walking and standing. The improvement in knee and back pain is exceptional. I have worn Z-Coil shoes since the fall of 2004 when a friend passed on a $10.00 coupon. Besides the pronation correction and metatarsal relief, I do not suffer from heel pain due to heel spur diagnosis in 1991. I thought I was headed for foot surgery until I started wearing Z-Coils.

    I have 4 herniated discs which are pinching several nerves. The Z-Coil shoes help me walk more easily because they do relieve some of the pain. They make going to work and to the store easier. My only complaint is that there are not many dress shoe options for women. I like the Sofia, but would like to have a different look sometimes, or different color. Also, I would love to own a pair of the western style boots. Please make a pair in women size 5!!!

The Sofia is our classic “Mary Jane” style shoe. The shoe is built for a normal D width but because it is assumed that you will wear the shoe with either nylons or barefoot, the shoe runs one size large.

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 heel
-a built in orthotic with a standard arch,
-a rocker bottom for easy mobility
-conical spring in the heel for 50% impact reduction to the body
