Plantar Fasciitis

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.

I found out about Z-CoiL shoes when I was visiting family in Washington. I have plantar fasciitis and have had it for years. I work in a nursing home and the cement floors take a huge toll on feet. While in Washington my husband and I were at a Wal-Mart store and we saw a woman who had on these different-looking shoes. My husband asked about her shoes and she proudly started to tell him about "her shoes." As he listened, he called me over to also listen to her.

Well, with my very sore feet I thought maybe these might help. Lord only knows that two sets of insoles did nothing for the pain. I could not even sleep due to the pain in my feet. And my foot doctor wanted to do shots and then cut the tendons in both feet. Well, I went to the shoe shop she spoke about and listened as the shop owner spoke to other people in the store. I asked to try on a pair of Z-CoiL shoes, and as they were put on my feet, the owner told me about the benefits.

When you have had as much pain as I have had, you are very doubtful that any shoe will work for you. Let me tell you, as soon as I stood up, my foot pain was completely GONE. I was amazed, and then I became the proud owner of the GREATEST SHOES around. My plantar fasciitis disappeared in about a month. Also my leg, knee and ankle pain left for good. When I came back to Michigan I told co-workers, and three of them now own Z-CoiL shoes. I recently bought a new pair and I tell everyone just how wonderful they are. They are the ONLY SHOES FOR ME!

Congratulations on opening your Z-CoiL store! I admit I was skeptical about the crazy looking shoes, but you can now count me as a HUGE fan of Z-CoiL!

I have knee problems, severe plantar fasciitis and arthritis in my knees and feet. All of these issues often make wearing any shoes for extended periods of time extremely uncomfortable. Consequently, I am in a lot of pain and lose sleep because of my aching feet and knees. I had even started to limit activity that involved a lot of walking, which isnt fun when you have young children and love to go to amusement parks, hike, play sports, attend concerts, etc. Those activities wont be a problem this summer!

I have spent hundreds of dollars on shoes, orthotics, doctors visits and nothing seemed to be helping in the long run. I had nothing to lose in trying Z-CoiL.

The time you spent working with me in getting the fit just right, which isnt easy with my wide, painful feet, was impressive, to say the least. Still skeptical and with literally a spring in my step, I left the store. I wore the shoes from 11am until about 10pm that evening something I could not have done in my $200 shoes I wore until Z-CoiL!

I recently went on a field trip to the National Zoo in Washington, D.C. with my sons first grade class. We walked the entire zoo several times, something I could not have done in any other pair of shoes I own.

I wear my shoes daily, and they are a constant source of conversation. There are a lot of folks out there with sore feet!

I am truly amazed at the lack of pain in my feet and in my knees and I am blissfully unaware of them now as I go about my daily activities. I plan on treating myself to a pair of Z-CoiL sandals soon!

THANK YOU! Best wishes for much success and CHEERS for happy feet!

I have suffered from plantar fasciitis since 2004, with no relief from this pain until I tried my first pair of Z-CoiL shoes at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta. The moment I placed these wonderful comfortable shoes on my feet, I knew what real relief was. All the other shoes I had purchased failed to help, but with my Z-CoiL shoes I can now walk and be pain-free. I need a new pair, as it is now three years later.

I walk almost all day, and with plantar fasciitis the pain upon standing is the worst and gets intense upon standing for long periods. With Z-CoiL shoes on I can walk all day and stand for long periods without pain. Thank you for making these clouds to wear. I shudder to think what I would be doing without them.

I have been a Registered Nurse for 40+ years and as a result I have been on my feet a lot. I developed plantar fasciitis and bone spurs on my heels. I had the spurs removed and was fitted with custom-made insoles, but I continued to have problems with pain in my feet and lower back. In 2006 my husband saw someone wearing a pair of Z-CoiL shoes and her testimony convinced him that I should try a pair. I purchased a pair in May and couldn't be more pleased.

I no longer come home from work exhausted and in severe pain. I am able to work and come home and participate in activities with my family. My grandchildren think I can jump like Tigger now, and I no longer sit on the sidelines during softball games and family hikes. Your shoes have given me back a pain-free life. I am in the process of choosing a second pair of shoes for home.

My doctor is amazed with the changes the shoes have made in my fight with foot and back pain. I totally recommend them to anyone who is suffering with foot and back pain. I thank God every day that he sent the person to my husband who was as enthusiastic as I am about Z-CoiL shoes. God bless you.
