Plantar Fasciitis

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.

I suffered from plantar fasciitis for about a year. I would go home in the evening, take off my shoes and would have to wait at least 30 minutes before getting up and walking around. The pain in my feet was a burning, stinging sensation and it was unbearable. I needed to do something about this, I could not deal with this any longer. I went to my podiatrist and he mentioned a shoe called Z-CoiL Pain Relief Footwear and explained to me that over time, these shoes can help and take the pain away. I found the nearest Z-CoiL store and it was well worth the trip. Just like the doctor said, within time, I am now pain free and I do not have to wait 30 minutes after taking my shoes off to get up and walk! Thanks, Z-CoiL.

I have been an RN for 40 years and have functioned in all areas of nursing, including clinical, educational, management, and consulting. Four years ago I decided to return to staff nursing in the emergency department on 12-hour night shifts. I was having tremendous pain in my feet, including heel spurs and plantar inflammation. I saw one of my colleagues at work wearing weird-looking spring shoes and decided to check it out. Z-CoiL shoes have been the best shoes I have ever worked in and have lessened my foot pain significantly. Not a shift goes by that a patient or family does not comment on my shoes. I cant recommend the product enough. I encourage anyone with a job that requires long hours of standing and/or walking to investigate this product. It lives up to its advertising.

I was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis last fall in my right heel. I went through stretching exercises, ice therapy and rest with only temporary results. This summer I developed the same problem in my left heel as well. I also have back pain from a minor injury 10 year ago. This continued pain concerned me because I am an elementary music specialist and am on my feet with my students all day. The pain was not getting better and school would start back soon. On a family trip to Hot Springs, AR, I ran across the Z-Coil Store, was custom fitted to the Freedom 2000 tennis shoe, and now both my heels feel great. Everywhere I go, I am confronted with stares and whispers because of my shoes. I don't mind "spreading the gospel" of the remarkable way this shoe has relieved my pain. I can't wait to get back to school and give the shoes a real test drive and tell my fellow teachers that they too can get real relief from their back and foot pain. Thank you

I am on my feet for my entire shift and I have had problems with plantar fasciitis as well as a bone spur since 2001; I was suffering pain so much that I tried everything, wore a splint to sleep in, wore a boot to walk at work, had cortizone shots and Electronic Shockwave Therapy as a last resort. I spent almost $1000.00 on two different sets of orthotics alone.

I bought a pair of Z-CoiL shoes in March of this year and my life has changed! I love them. I can walk my whole shift with no pain at all. Since I got my awesome shoes (I believe the style is Tia) I have been more active than ever--lost 45 pounds and feel great! I can actually wear other shoes for short periods of time when I have important functions. But I always go back to my Z-CoiL shoes. I love them. Thanks!
