Plantar Fasciitis

I purchased my Z-CoiL shoes in 2007 and haven't taken them off since! I suffered from extremely painful bone spurs and plantar fasciitis, but both are basically non-existent with my Z-CoiL shoes on!! I can now wear 'other' shoes at various times, but wear my Z-CoiL shoes at work, 40 hours a week!! Just wish we had a dealer closer to here, at least 3-5 people a day ask me about my 'funny' shoes!

Suffering from plantar fasciitis, I went to physical therapy for weeks, had cortisone shots, and wore the 'boot' at night for months. Nothing seemed to help. I was determined I was going to spend whatever amount necessary on a pair of shoes that would not hurt my feet. I spend a fortune on different shoes recommended to me but none of them worked. While at a shoe store in Orange Beach, Alabama, the salesperson introduced me to Z-CoiL shoes. It took me about 2 hours to decide to purchase them since they were so 'funky' looking. However, I bought them and wore them around the house to get use to them. I couldn't bring myself to wear them in public until I wore long pants to help hide the coils! In October, I went to Japan for 3 weeks. I wore them everywhere, and my feet did not hurt. I was amazed!

When I returned home to Alabama, I got up the nerve to wear them to school. My students were fascinated! I have worn them every day since! I teach 5th grade and am on my feet ALL day. My feet do not bother me at all. I even bought the sandals to wear with my capri's. I continuously get questions about them. I highly recommend them to everyone! I have 2 pairs and am getting ready to buy the tennis shoes.

Thanks Z-CoiL!

I used to walk 4 to 8 miles every day until I developed plantar fasciitis in both feet and walking became very painful. I saw these strange looking shoes on some people and asked about them. They raved about Z-CoiL, so I gave them a try and now I have 6 pairs of these amazing shoes. I can now walk like I used to and I'm loving it! I can't say enough great things about these shoes and how much they have given my freedom back for walking anywhere!

After two foot surgeries and severe plantar fasciitis, I was getting closer and closer to yet another foot surgery. A year of appointments with two separate podiatrists, new prescription shoe orthotics (adjusted twice), at least a dozen different pairs of shoes (always searching for the "perfect" one), physical therapy, chiropractic therapy, ultra-sound therapy, and two cortisone shots, I was ready to give up. The constant pain was making my world shrink around me. I had to seriously think before I walked across the room, "Will this be worth it" The anti-inflammatory drugs I had been taking for ten years were destroying my liver and my left leg was starting to atrophy from tentative walking on my painful left foot.

Following a trip to New England with my husband and daughter, I resigned myself to the fact that the pain was going to become a regular part of my life. That trip solidified how much I was missing. I had to wait in the hotel while they walked the Freedom Trail and had a drink in the famous bar, Cheers.

When we returned from our trip, I saw Z-CoiL shoes on a store clerk and decided to try them. If they didn't work, I would know that I had tried everything else before another surgery. Within the first week, my feet stopped hurting.

At first, I was embarrassed to wear them. They don't look like your average shoe. I frequently get stopped by people who want to know all about them. I am a walking commercial in support of these shoes and am happy to tell my story to anyone who asks.

It's been several months now and I can honestly say that these shoes have saved my life. I have cut the anti-inflammatory drugs by half, my liver function is fine, and my thought processes are clearer. I'm not living with constant pain and I have regained the strength in my left leg. I no longer have to wear my orthotics.

While I wear my Z-CoiL shoes most of the time, I can switch to some of my other shoes for an evening out or for church.

Thank you for these wonderful shoes.

I stand about 8-12 hrs a day in the operating room and have had the same pair of Z-CoiL shoes for 5 1/2 years now. I had pretty severe plantar fasciitis before buying the shoes and, thanks to God and the shoes, I have no pain. The relief was not overnight - but over a couple months the pain disappeared completely and has not returned. I would rather stand now and my feet don't throb when I get home and prop my feet up after a long day. Simply a wonderfully made and durable shoe. Thank you!!!

I just bought my Z-CoiL shoes this January, and could actually shout from the roof tops about how wonderful they are! I have a severe case of planter fasciitis in my left foot and have been suffering for well over a year. It had gotten to the point I could not walk on concrete without being in so much pain that I would cry. I was told about Z-CoiL shoes and after spending a few hundred dollars on other shoes, inserts, walking boot, etc., I thought why not give these shoes a try. What could it hurt spending a little more money Well, it was like instant relief!!!! I still feel like I am dreaming and afraid I am going to wake up and be hurting again. It is a true miracle for me. Words can not explain the relief that I feel! I highly recommend them to anyone with any type of foot problems and also back problems. I just thank God for finding out about these shoes. They are wonderful and like walking on a cloud. When you are fitted with them, they take their business seriously and take time making sure you are fitted properly. The orthotic inserts make them that much more comfortable.

Honestly, I have cried many tears with so much pain and now, only 6 days later, no pain at all. It is a miracle and something that needs to be shouted from the roof tops.

Thank you Z-CoiL!
