High Instep

instep of your foot is the bony structure on top of the foot. The arch of your foot is the curve under the foot, between the heel and forefoot.  The instep runs from the back of the toes to the front of the ankle.  The arch runs from the back of the toes to the heel. Instep vs arch   If you have feet with a high instep or arch while standing, you have foot condition called pes cavus.  A high instep is normally not too much of a problem and in the case of ballerinas is the preferred type of foot.  But, for the average person, it may be problematic because it is hard to find shoes that have enough depth in the shoe to accommodate the elevated bones on the top of the foot.  You may have a high instep if you try on shoes and cannot fit the arch area into the shoe.  You may also have a high instep if the top of your foot is irritated or sore at the end of the day.  

Z-CoiL® Pain Relief Footwear® are ergonomically designed to fit the high instep foot!

  We built our shoe with extra depth and width in the instep area to accommodate our customers who require some extra room, and we designed a pressure free, flat lacing system to minimize the irritation or soreness that occurs when the laces cross over this area of the foot which has little natural padding.

Read here also a testimonial from one of our customers who had problems with a high instep.

In 2007 I was in an auto accident and sustained a spinal cord injury. I was paralyzed and bedridden until Dec. 4, 2008. During that time, I developed a dropped foot. After my surgery I began walking again, but due to my extremely high instep and very wide feet, I tore the ligaments in the bottom of both feet. No matter what I tried, they would not heal so my podiatrist suggested I try Z-CoiL shoes. I was absolutely surprised and delighted with the very first step I took in them! I had retained some residual back and leg pain after my car accident surgery that would not go away, until I wore Z-CoiL shoes; and now it is much better! I completely recommend these shoes to ANYONE with foot, leg or back pain!!!! Thank you, Z-CoiL! Janice Maxwell~
