Plantar Fasciitis

My generous sister sent me a pair of her Z-CoiL shoes when I injured my knee. Within two weeks my knee was healed, but I kept on wearing the shoes because they felt amazing. I started to notice that my arthritis no longer flared up, nor did my plantar fasciitis. I have had arthritis since I was eight years old, so I was totally impressed. I now own four pairs of Z-CoiL shoes, and they are all I wear.

I was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis in 1997. A podiatrist had made me orthotics for my shoes, which helped for a few years. I started having the pain again in 2003, and the orthotics no longer helped. My foot would be in severe pain at the end of my 12-hour shift. I would really notice the pain after resting at home for a few minutes and attempting to walk about in my home. I had tried several brands of different shoes with inserts and nothing worked. I had seen a co-worker a few years back with the Z-CoiL shoe. She told me it had helped her back pain tremendously. I decided last year to purchase my first pair. I was still leery about the shoe, so I did not start to wear them until January 2008. They have been the best investment I have made in my nursing career. It took about a week or two to adjust to them, but now I am pain-free and enjoying my career to the fullest.Thank you so much, Z-CoiL.

I have been an RN for 31 years. Two years ago I developed plantar fasciitis. I am a labor and delivery nurse and am on my feet at the patients bedside 10 to 12 hours a day. I was in such pain, I could hardly work.

A gal I work with had a pair of Z-CoiL shoes she wore for knee pain. I immediately got on the internet to find a store that sold Z-CoiL shoes near where I live. I bought my first pair in Spearfish, South Dakota. The sandals were so comfortable, I wore them to work. The second pair I bought in Billings, Montana. The Tia is my absolute favorite!!I can barely stand to wear any other shoe.

Before I found Z-CoiL shoes, I had doubts about remaining in nursing. Z-CoiL shoes work better for me than acupuncture, medications (both oral and injection), and icing my foot. I knew I had found a winner the first time I put them on.

Thank you, Z-CoiL!

I LOVE MY Z-COIL SHOES!!!! I had been suffering for several months from pain caused by plantar fasciitis. I work in a grocery store and spend several hours a day on my feet. I discovered these shoes while on vacation in Gatlinburg, TN. I usually do a lot of hiking when we go there, but the pain this time stopped me from being able to hike. Actually, I had not been able to exercise for several months, and to be honest I was packing on the pounds, not to mention getting depressed.

The day before Thanksgiving I worked 10 hours and the pain was terrible. I went on vacation, discovered the shoes, and Christmas Eve I worked 15 hours and could have kept going. I couldnt believe it! The foot and heel pain was 90 percent gone in just 10 days! I also need a partial knee replacement, but have put off the surgery for now because the shoes also relieve my knee pain.

I have gone from having a significant limp to barely one at all. I just can't say enough about these shoes. They have definitely changed my life!

I have had painful plantar fasciitis for 10 years or so and have been treated by a podiatrist for almost 7 years, with little relief. I am a registered nurse at a hospital and I am on my feet for 12 hours each shift. This is grueling for foot pain. I have faithfully worn custom-made orthotics for almost 7 years, and they were $300.00 each pair out-of-pocket (no insurance coverage for this). The last six months my right heel has been extremely inflamed and painful.

I saw a co-worker with the Z-CoiL shoes and asked about them. She said she had so much relief from wearing these shoes, so I looked Z-CoiL up on the Internet. I read such wonderful testimonials on this website and others that I looked up a store nearby and found one in Charlottesville, VA. I tried on a pair, was fitted and was sold! I would not take them off. The shoes are so relieving to my condition. I still have to stretch and use ice on that troublesome heel, but what a relief!!! I have bought two more pair and my husband (with back problems and pain from fibromyalgia) has also bought two pairs. We are planning to take a 26th Anniversary cruise to the Caribbean this month, and with my Z-CoiL sandals and tennis shoes, I am looking forward to this trip!

Thanks to the amazing designer of this shoe, I will enjoy sightseeing as I have not enjoyed in ten years and no worries about how far we walk! Now I am looking to buy some dress shoes that I can wear with dresses. I highly recommend these shoes to anyone with foot or back pain -- oh, and I have to co-workers, including doctors, nurses and others. Everywhere I wear them I am a walking commercial because they are so unique people ask about them and I am happy to point them to the Z-CoiL website to learn more. I love them. Thanks again!!!

After 25 years on my feet as a pharmacist, the plantar fasciitis and heel spurs were nearly crippling. Shots and drugs didn't work anymore, orthotics did little. Then a friend of mine "loaned" me her Z-CoiL shoes to try at work. They weren't my size, but seemed a lot more comfortable. I finally got a chance to go to a store in the Denver area about six weeks later and try on shoes that were fitted to me. I walked out with three pairs and have been pain-free for two weeks. (Except for the day I didn't wear them and lived to regret it!) When I got home last night, I took off my shoes and put on a pair of slippers...walked about 20 steps...and went back for my shoes. How about a pair of slippers with insoles that can be laundered Seems I can't wear anything else but Z-CoiL shoes. I showed them to my orthopedist and told him the shoes had done more for me in one day than 12 months of visits with him! If this pain relief keeps up, I might actually make it to retirement. Thanks for keeping me on my feet.
