Read here some testimonials from people with Achilles Tendinitis
I purchased a pair of Z-CoiL shoes mid-May of this year in sheer desperation. A friend of mine with diabetes, who was suffering from diabetic myopathy, had recently bought a pair of Z-CoiL shoes and she was ecstatic at the results she got from wearing them. For the last three years I have suffered with 2 heel spurs on either side of my left foot and Achilles Tendonitis. In short, my life was absolutely miserable. The pain was 24/7. I gained weight because I couldn't walk; I had to use the handicap carts when I went shopping. I was seeing a podiatrist regularly. I ran a gamut of treatments; my foot was put in a cast, cortisone injections, etc, all to no avail. My ankle was swollen twice its size, also receiving steroids, but nothing worked. I then purchased a pair of Z-CoiL shoes at Kiddly Toes in Jonesboro, Arkansas. At first I thought they wouldn't work, my relief was not immediate, but now, at the end of 2 months the pain on the left side of the heel is gone! I can still feel some pain on the right side but overall the pain has diminished to about 2 (on a scale of 1-10). I believe in another few weeks it will be even better. I am not fond of the look of the shoe, but with the pain I've experienced WHO CARES!! These shoes have given me back my life! I am walking more, and longer, distances which was impossible 2 months ago. I would highly recommend these shoes to anyone suffering with chronic pain. I had given up hope until I found Z-CoiL. I will be purchasing another pair soon. Thanks for a great product which is well worth the money!!

I tried my first pair of Z-CoiL shoes on at the state fair. Having had fusion surgery of the 3rd, 4th and 5th Lumbar and as well as my Achilles Tendon re-attached combined with several sports related injuries to my knees, I was resigned to having to live with the pain that came along with walking distances or being on my feet for long periods of time. I bought a pair of Z-Duty steel-toes and a pair of Desert Hikers. Words do not come close to describing the difference my Z-CoiL shoes have made in my life! I enjoy a whole day at the fair, the zoo, the mall or just walking the hiking paths to stay in shape. I can walk circles around people half my age and come home from work, ready to go out dancing. Do you make a dancing shoe Thank you Z-CoiL!

I have had serious heel pain for 30 years and had surgery on my Achilles tendon 15 years ago. I was a serious runner for 35 years (i.e. 360 days a year, marathons etc.). 15 months ago, I switched to Z-CoiL hiking and walking shoes, I became "pain free" after about 6 months!

Hello there and thank God for Z-CoiL shoes. I have been suffering with chronic tendonitis in both ankles for three years. The doctors told me it is something I will have to deal with for the rest of my life. For all my jobs I have been on my feet. I had been trying to find a job that would not require me to be on my feet. I tried the Z-CoiL shoes and I could not believe the difference in how my feet and my back felt. I have worn them for six months now. I will not wear any shoes other than Z-CoiL shoes.
