Plantar Fasciitis

I tried everything to relieve my plantar fasciitis. I had cortisone injections, custom-made orthotics, stretching exercises, and ice pack therapy. I didn't know how I could keep working with the pain I was experiencing. I avoided taking even one more step a day then my job required. A nurse where I work told me about Z-CoiL shoes, and on a trip to Las Vegas, I visited a shop there. I have to admit my first impression was "I'll never wear those funny looking shoes," but I tried on a pair and knew this could possibly help my foot pain. After a month of wearing the shoes, my heel pain was completely gone. I have been wearing Z-CoiL shoes for over five years now. I walk three to four miles every day for health, and still work over 60 hours a week, standing on my feet and walking on tile floors. My foot pain is gone. Thank you, Z-CoiL, for giving me back my life.

I suffer from plantar fasciitis, and I must admit walking was so very painful, especially being on my feet on concrete floors. I tried your Z-CoiL tennis shoes and you won't believe the change!!! Before, I was taking pain pills on a regular basis and now I don't have the need to. I have recommended your shoes to several people at work and they want more information!!!Thank you so very much.

I had a lot of pain for years in my feet and ankles. I went to the doctor and he told me I had plantar fasciitis, heel spurs and narrowing of articular joints. I walked like I was in my 80's but Im only 49. I went to Z-CoiL and put a pair of shoes on and knew right away that I found the only shoes Id wear for the rest of my life. My husband says I walk like Im 20 years younger. I LOVE my Z-CoiL shoes.

P.S I have 5 pairs now!

I have suffered from plantar fasciitis for seven years. There have been times when the only way to get from the bed to the bathroom in the morning was to crawl on my knees.

Last year, I received a cortisone shot in my right heel and felt complete relief, but alas, its effects only lasted a month. I had become more and more sedentary and have really been gaining weight over the last three years because of this issue. I had really started to get depressed because things seemed so hopeless.

I saw a new store open up next to my video store. They were advertising foot pain relief shoes. Then there was an article in the paper about the shoes this store was selling. This piqued my curiosity, so I went in. When I put them on, I was near tears and could hardly talk. The relief was instant.

The foot pain, almost entirely gone, and the hip pain I had developed recently from walking so oddly to accommodate the foot pain was completely gone! I was literally making a whole different set of plans for our summer vacation sitting in the store--one that actually involves walking and doing something, instead of sitting poolside!!

That night, I took my kids to a carnival and walked around for hours. The next morning there was no flare up from the extra walking that normally would occur.

I cannot tell you what it means to be given hope again that something can be done to relieve pain that was so crippling. Thank you so much. I see more Z-CoiL shoes in my future: a dressy pair, a hiking pair, etc., as I regain my life and all its different activities!!!!

I was desperate before I learned about these amazing shoes. I have severe plantar fasciitis and had gotten to the point where I could hardly walk. I work at an elementary school, so being up on the concrete floors all day only made things worse. But the first day I put the Z-CoiL tennis shoes on, I cried. For the first time in almost two years I wasn't in agony anymore. I had freedoms again that I didn't think I would ever get to have. These shoes changed my life. They gave me my life back. I got the tennis shoes first then I went back and got the Mary Janes so that I could have something to wear to church. I'm hoping to go soon and get some sandals so that I can have a summer shoe.

As soon as I get the sandals, I officially won't need anything else! Unless of course you come out with a dressy type of shoes!! Hint hint!!!

I have traveled over three hours to get these shoes. With how they have changed my outlook on everything, I would go to the ends of the earth to get another pair! Thank you so much for giving me my life back!

I feel freedom around the corner. I have had plantar fasciitis in my left foot now for four years. I have had PT, cortisone shots, hard casts and soft (air boot) casts, and now Laser treatments, and I am still wearing my orthotics. I still have trouble at night and in the morning when not wearing any shoes. I have heard good and bad things about having the surgery and the doctors also say there is no guarantee. I also have a condition called Reflex Symptomatic Dystrophy (RSD) which is basically severe nerve pain that kicks in when I have any kind of surgery or procedure. I wind up in the hospital on a morphine drip for about 3-4 days, then it goes away. So you can see why I don't want to choose the surgery road.

After wearing the air boot on a daily basis, which also messes up your alignment, my friends at work told me to go and try the Z-CoiL shoes. I had already tried 32 different pairs of tennis shoes and was hesitant about trying another. Well, I thought they looked goofy, but I was willing to try anything at this point. I found the Z-CoiL Pain Relief Footwear store in Millersville, MD, and spoke with Lisa [Valentine]. I went there on a Monday. It took a while to get used to them, as you have to gradually break them in (one hour the first day, two the second and so on) but after a while I said FREEDOM AT LAST!

I have been wearing the Blue and White Freedom for 16 hours a day now and I just went back and bought the Tia work dress shoe. Yes, they still have no taste for the women's style dress shoe, but I had to get something. With Z-CoiL shoes you will have the ability to be able to walk again with no pain! What a difference they have made in my life! Yes, they still look goofy to other people and some people even think they are cool looking/new trend even, but hey, I don't care, because they work. The coils take the pressure off my heel and enable me to walk and stand.
