In New Mexico, you can see Z-CoiL shoes bouncing around the state on a daily basis. Z-CoiL was recently ranked in the top 20 Inventions in New Mexico
. Invented in Albuquerque by Al Gallegos in the mid-1990s, Z-CoiL® Pain Relief Footwear™ was first sold to the public from a small retail store on 4th Street in Los Ranchos de Albuquerque. Now it's sold around the world.
Also in the top 20 inventions are “Smokey the bear” and the “Atomic bomb.” Another favorite among the Z-CoiL employees are Sopapillas and the breakfast burrito.
