Plantar Fasciitis

I was in Oaxaca, Mexico, over the December holidays for two weeks, walking all over the city and a lot on cobblestones. I developed a severe case of plantar fasciitis as a result. I was in such pain I had to get a wheelchair to get through the Mexico City and San Francisco airports. I just could not walk.

Back in San Francisco, my partner told me about the Z-Connection store up on Irving Street. I was in a lot of pain that Saturday morning, but I went by and looked at the shoes. When I saw them, I knew I wouldn't wear them because they looked so strange. However, once I tried them on and walked in them, I had NO pain! It was amazing. I was sold. I bought the Z-CoiL shoes immediately and have worn no other shoes since then. I am slowly recovering from plantar fasciitis with the help of a podiatrist, an acupuncturist, a physical therapistand my Z-CoiL shoes. They really help my healing process along. Also, they are a lot of fun to wear because my feet never seem to feel tired. Thanks, Z-CoiL Footwear!

The Boston Marathon--every distance runners dream. Well, I finally made it. Yes, I did have to wait for my age to catch up with my abilities. Turned 60, which means I needed a 4-hour time to qualify for Boston. Some might say anyone can go 26.2 miles in 4 hours, but go ahead, give it a try. I had never run four hours in any previous marathon, but I knew it was possible, especially with help of a running friend who became my personal trainer.

Now the bad news. After I ran the St. George marathon in October in 3:55 to qualify for Boston, I had a minor groin injury in December and lost most of the month. Then I had a lot of travel and conflicts in January. Got serious about training in February, and guess what Hurt my foot/heel. At first, the doctor thought it was plantar fasciitis, but then my family doctor thought it was a bruised heel. Either way, the only training it allowed was some stationary bike riding, but not much. Couldn't believe it, ten years in preparation with no major injuries, except minor knee surgery, and now ready for Boston and hurt.

As a part of trying to recuperate from the foot injury, my doctor had recommended a shoe called Z-CoiL that would save the day. I really didn't think I could finish the race, but since my friend was going, I decided to go, and at worst I would get a better understanding of Boston, do a few miles and drop out, but be better prepared to go back next year.

These shoes saved the day for my heel. Well, at least allowed me to do a walk/run and finish the race. Pretty wild

Didn't make my 4 hours, but made it. Foot hurt, but it was worth it. Without the Z-CoiL shoes I would never have been able to finish. Really excited about how it will be next year when, hopefully, my foot will be well.

My foot is still healing, so whenever I don't wear my Z-CoiL shoes the pain level goes way up. I am so very thankful to Z-CoiL. I plan to continue wearing my Z-CoiL footwear for some of my training runs when my foot is back to normal. With Z-CoiL shoes, I hope to get at least ten more years of running.

I have been suffering from plantar fasciitis for almost a year. The last few months have been unbearable. I have spent hundreds of dollars on new shoes, orthotics, physical therapy, etc. NOTHING HAS RELIEVED MY PAIN, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF YOUR SHOES. I just purchased your dress boot last evening and since wearing them, have had NO HEEL PAIN!!!!!

Your shoes were recommended to me by nurses at Methodist Hospital in St. Louis Park, MN, where my husband was a patient. Best money I have ever spent!!!!! I am learning how to walk all over again, as when you have been in pain continuously for this long a period of time, you are very apprehensive in your walking for fear of EXCRUCIATING PAIN!!!! I HAVE NOT STOPPED TALKING ABOUT YOUR SHOES!

My step-daughter from Denver, CO, is coming for the Thanksgiving holiday. She is a UPS delivery person who is also suffering from heel pain and knee crunching. We are going to take her to your Edina, MN, store and hopefully buy her a pair of your hiking boots! I am confident she will experience the same results I have. I also have knee problems and have been told these shoes should alleviate those problems, also . . .

These shoes have become my lifesaver. I have suffered from plantar fasciitis for over a year. I'd sit down and take off my shoes in the evening, but couldn't get back up to walk without being in a great deal of painburning, stinging sensations in both my feet. I work in the medical field and am on my feet for up to 16 hours a day. I had tried expensive orthotics and was even put in a walking boot, but nothing helped.

I first saw some nurses at work wearing them and then while in Gatlinburg, TN, I saw them in a window and went and tried a pair on. WOW!!! What a difference. I've been wearing them ever since. My husband likes to make fun of them, so I bought him a pair. He suffers from low back pain and knee pain. He would have a lot of pain while walking or standing for extended periods of time. Since he's worn these shoes he complains less about his back and knees hurting when we go out shopping together. He says he can really feel a difference. He still makes fun of the shoes, but they do grow on you. I recently had a teenager tell me they were cool.

I have been an ambassador for these shoes. Several doctors and nurses have asked me about them and I tell them about your website. Thanks for inventing something that really works.
