Postal Worker's Job Made Painfree


Scott Harris has been a postal worker for the past 30 years. He is planning to retire to the Phillipines in four years. He has property there in Cebu.
About five years ago Scott came to Z-CoiL of Seattle at the base of Capital Hill with an appointment to see the onsite consulting podiatrist Dr. Kerch. He was diagnosed with plantar fascitis and was treated accordingly. Since his pain was so severe he was a candidate for foot surgery.
Scott says, " I was due to go under the knife, but the Z-CoiL Pain Relief Footwear relieved my pain".
"I bought my first pair of Z-CoiL's five years ago. Now I have four pairs. The regular postal shoes last six months. These 4 pairs are the longest lasting shoes I have ever worn. My four pairs are all usable after five years. Even the coils on my shoes, open and enclosed coils, have lasted two years. The Z-CoiL shoes are well worth the money, not even taking into consideration the health benefits."
"I prefer the enclosed coils because wearing the open coils delays me an additional 30 minutes to do my mail route. Not as many people stop me to ask about my shoes when I wear the enclosed coils. When I wore my solar cap and the Z-CoiL shoes, I couldn't even get out of the elevator because of having so many people asking me questions.
-What are those?
I've never seen them before.
Are those the basketball shoes with the springs that strengthen the calf for training? (No, these are mostly therapeutic shoes)
Now I mostly wear the enclosed coils. I have more energy and I am not so worn out at the end of the day-it's like walking on a cloud."
"I'm really satisfied with the Z-CoiL shoes. They are great for walking on concrete."
"I tried the rocker sole type shoes, but they do not have the same effect. Those rocker soles really aren't for plantar fascitis since they lean you back more toward your heels."

Bob Graduated from Dottie's Hand-Me-Downs to His own Z-CoiLs.


Bob Graham visited our store, Z-CoiL of Seattle, from So. Miami. He works for Univision, a Spanish TV network for the past 30 years. He was in town for the soccer match this week-end. It is a MLS- Major League Soccer game, LA Galaxy versus Utah. Featured will be David Beckham and lots of Spanish players. Players from both teams make up the US team competing for the World Cup.
Bob is staying at the Hyatt here in Seattle. Machiavelli's is a couple of doors down from our store. On the way back to the Hyatt after a delicious Italian dinner at Machivaellis, he spotted our store. The next day he came right over for his third pair of Z-CoiL's. He has been wearing Z-CoiL shoes for the past 8 years.
He first saw the Z-CoiL shoes being worn by an ICU nurse in Phoenix 10 years ago.
Bob's wife Dottie started wearing the Z-CoiL shoes first, about nine years ago. Dottie now has 9 pairs of Z-CoiL's: 2 pairs of athletic shoes (Freedom) blue and white and one is all white, Black Mary Jane style, Black clog, and another sneaker type.
Bob got Dottie's hand me downs for 5-6 years. "These shoes just last so long".
Bob purchased his first new pair of Z-CoiL shoes about three years ago.
Last summer Dottie gave away Bob's brown hiking boots to a friend who had very bad shin splints. The shin splints went away. "You can't pry the Z-CoiL's off his feet", Bob said. This friend's wife helped them obtain their first Chinese baby adoption. She was 13 months old at the time of adoption and is now 4 years old. The paperwork is in now for a second Chinese adoption. Bob said, "Being 50 and having a 4 year old child keeps me young."
His previous pair of dress sandals he forgot to put up and the Z-CoiL's got chewed on by their puppy. This left him Z-CoiL-less and on the hunt for a new pair.
Today he is trying out the enclosed coils on a pair of gray hiking boots. After being evaluated on the I-Step machine, he was fitted for a pair of supportive Lynco orthotics. The enclosed coil can be attached to any Z-CoiL style.
Dottie has lower back pain that the Z-CoiL's help eliminate. She worked as a trauma nurse, but now is getting her masters to be a nurse practioner.
When they were in China, the Chinese people were taking pictures of the Z-CoiL footwear. In the US Dottie and Bob are telling people about the Z-CoiL's.
Speaking of China,Audrey S. visited our Z-CoiL store from China while visiting Seattle. She is an ex-patriot. Her mother in Spokane raved about the shoes so much she convinced her daughter to get a pair. Audrey was evaluated on the I-Step Pressue Analysis and was fitted with the Lynco supportive orthotics in her new Z-CoiL brown hikers and two pairs of our great socks that keep you warm while wicking away any moisture on your feet.

40th High School Class Reunion Unites the Brown's With Z-CoiL's


Al and Helen Brown were surprised to see Nancy Chong on stage giving a quilting lesson at Al's 40th Redmond High School reunion in these strange looking shoes.
After Nancy explained how the shoes work to reduce impact on the joints, Al and Helen went to learn more. They bought their first pair at the Bellevue location.
That was six years ago. The store in Bellevue went out of business so they found us for other pairs.
Al owns a pair of brown hikers as well as gray and black hikers. He needed new insoles for the hikers since he wears them so much. In addition to a pair of black freedom athletic shoes, he acquired a pair of Sandias on sale today ( sale limited to overstock on hand).
Helen is just as enthusiastic for Z-CoiL footwear. She owns the black freedom's as well as the white freedom's. Today she bought the Loryn's on sale ( sale limited to overstock on hand).
Helen says the only maintenance she has had to do is obtain a new set of coils four years ago. "These shoes are worth the money since they last so long and help me so much!"
Helen used to have nagging pain in her neck and shoulders. Not only has this pain gone away wearing the Z-CoiL shoes, she notices she stands straighter as well.
"They told us to break the shoes in slowly, but we did not do that. We wore them all the time from the start."
Al is so much better from the pain and stiffness he had in his foot, leg and back since wearing the Z-CoiL pain relief footwear. The burning and numbness in his feet and pain in his legs started after two hours on his feet. Now he goes up and down the stairs with no problems.
"So many people stop us to ask:
Are they comfortable?
Can you jump fences?
What are they for?
I just hand them a card and tell them they are good for foot, leg and back pain."
Al and Helen are building a house at Steven's Pass. They used to be skiers until a couple of years ago. They currently live in Bellevue.

Joe Runs With Relief



Joe Etchart lives in Montana and came to our store recently while visiting our fair city.

Joe bought his blue and white Freedom 2000 (athletic shoes) eight or ten years ago.

These are the only shoes he is able to run in that don't bother his knees. He bought the Z-CoiL's in Albuquerque after his family told him about them. At that time the old location for the Z-CoiL corporate store was in Albuquerque it is now in a bigger store in a new location) . He was pleased with the service since his gait was analyzed for the need of any coil adjustment.
He had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee and open surgery on his left knee. The knee trouble made it hard for him to run until he found the Z-CoiL Pain Relief Footwear. Now he runs five miles a day.
The maintenance of the footwear includes replacing the coils for new ones every so often. This is accomplished by unscrewing the old coils and screwing in the new coils.

When his kids were younger he wore the Z-CoiL's to their track meets. Many folks asked about them and he told them they work for him.
"Exercise is very important to me and without the Z-CoiLs I wouldn't be able to do it."have been the only thing that works for me to keep me active".

Joe is involved in ranching, manages real estate and is on the Board of Directors of Alpine Air, a regional freighter airline.

Elaine Burnet Refused Surgery and Got Pain Relief with Z-CoiL Pain Relief Footwear

Elaine has worked for Home and Auto Insurance for the past eight years as an adjuster. She helps folks rebuild after catastrophic losses. Her department has especially involved in the ongoing California fires.
Nine years ago she had a torn right meniscus. She refused surgery, "I knew it would heal. But I gained sixty pounds in the process." She had to be inactive during the healing process. That is until she started wearing her first pair of Z-CoiL pain Relief Footwear five years ago from our store at 1201 Pine St in Seattle.
She heard about the shoes from her sister who had suffered from heel spurs for six years. She got relief from wearing the Z-CoiL pain Relief Footwear after years of a lot of pain.
Her niece also wears the shoes. She had a serious fractured ankle. During rehab her doctor recommended Z-CoiL footwear. Her sister and niece were the same size so they traded shoes as needed.
Elaine is now on her fourth pair of these shoes which have given her amazing relief. She had been limping all the time from the torn meniscus. She had lots of pain and swelling in her knee. "I hate taking those pain medications and I was so happy to be able to stop taking them when I got relief from wearing these shoes. The first thing I noticed is I stood up straighter." After two weeks of wearing the Z-CoiL pain relief footwear the swelling in her right knee was down. Within one month she was walking normally-NO LIMP!
The first purchase choice was a black taos clog. She owns a grey freedom athletic shoe, grey hiker boots. Her most purchase are the dark brown sandals which are on a close-out special.
"Everyday people ask me where do I get those shoes? They know about them, but do not know where to get them. I tell them how great they worked for me and to get them at 1201 Pine St in Seattle at the base of Capital Hill."
Thank-you Elaine- we appreciate the referrals!

Z-CoiL Pain Relief Footwear Helps Grandma Play More With Granddaughter


Maryanne G. is a retired 4th grade teacher since June of 2008. She worked in the Yakima school district.
For the past year her job is to play with her 13 and 1/2 month old granddaughter.
She bought all of her Z-CoiL's from our store, Z-CoiL of Seattle. Last visit she bought the black and white Freedom 2000 (athletic shoe). This visit she bought a pair of taos clog strap (Mary Jane type) and the Z-trek (hybrid hiker) Z-CoiL styles.
Maryanne first heard about the Z-CoiLs from a nurse at the Yakima Hospital her mother was recovering in. The nurse was happily bouncing around in her Z-CoiL's and told Maryanne about them.
Next an artist in Arizona mentioned her experience with the Z-CoiL shoes a few months ago. Sharon Schamber at http://sharonschambernetwork.com/gallery/index.html is an artist on fabric. Sharon was standing for three days teaching her craft while wearing Z-CoiL shoes. Maryanne asked Sharon, "How do you keep up your energy?" Sharon went on to tell her how wonderful the Z-CoiL's have been for her.
Maryanne has obtained relief from her foot and knee pain. She has had three foot surgeries and had her knee scoped two times. Currently her right knee has no meniscus. This all has resulted in constant pain, now relieved by wearing the Z-CoiL Pain Relief Footwear.
Z-CoiL Pain Relief Footwear offers a natural solution to solving pain issues in the foot, leg, knee, and back. Visit us at 1201 Pine St. in Seattle (at the base of Capital Hill) to see all of the growing styles available.
Maryanne states her quality of life has improved so much she has begun American Folk dancing again.
She is eager to tell people she meets about her experience wearing the Z-CoiL shoes. "Yes, they work! After two hours of wearing my regular sandals, I need to start looking for my Z-CoiL's. I definitely have to wear them during work hours (playing with my granddaughter)."

Z-CoiL Pain Relief Footwear Make a Splash on the Bremerton Ferry


Linda Koss was riding on the Bremerton Ferry 6 years ago, when she met a mother and daughter wearing Z-CoiL Pain Relief Footwear. The two of them made such an impression on her because their posture was so erect. The mom told her she had to quit work as an ER nurse because of her back pain. After wearing the Z-CoiL shoes she is now able to work full time. The daughter in her 30's was suffering from a crippling pain limiting her walking. She told Linda how the Z-CoiL shoes had helped her so much. Linda started having back pain about six years ago. The Z-CoiL shoes intrigued her. After hearing from the two on the ferry she researched the shoes further. Linda's mother had suffered from severe scoliosis, arthritis, osteoporosis and kyphoses. These conditions resulted in loss of her height. Her mom went from 5 feet three inches tall to four feet nine inches.
Linda was in retirement for since 4/08. Two months ago she went back to work on her feet part-time as a nurse. The hours part-time are 7-10 hours per day 3-4 days a week. She is an on call long term care nurse. She used to work running all around as an OR nurse 10-12 hours day. Her main problems were back and hip pain until she started wearing the Z-CoiL Pain Relief Footwear.
She says,"Now if I wear regular shoes at work I end up stooping to the side because of a spasms in my side."
She has had her white freedoms for years which she purchased from the now closed Bellevue store. She was amazed how replacing the coils at her recent visit to Z-CoiL of Seattle at 1201 Pine St, rejuvenated the coils. Her patients ask about the Z-CoiL shoes all the time.

She says," I tell them they are life savers, how they were developed by a runner, and where to go online to learn more about the Z-CoiL."

Seven Reasons to Wear Fitflops




7 REASONS WHY EVERYBODY IS WEARING FITFLOPS:
1.FitFlop midsoles incorporate patent-pending micro-wobbleboardTM technology, to give you a workout while you walk. Developed by Darren James and Dr David Cook at LSBU, the FitFlop's unique safely -tapered midsole places varying densities of EVA under your feet each time you step, to challenge the support and balance muscles of the foot and leg.
2.They challenge hard to reach muscles more. FitFlops are engineered with a multi-density midsole that stimulates your muscles more while you're wearing them. In independent University testing, FitFlops have been shown to trigger increase gluteal muscle response, increased hamstring response, increase rectus femoris (thigh) response and increased calf muscle response .
3.Every step you take in your FitFlops helps tone and trim your legs: Studies at Salford University by Dr. Philip Graham-Smith and Richard Jones have shown that the FitFlop midsole extends the amount of time that the slow twitch* muscles are engaged during each step (by approximately 10-12%). So just by wearing a pair of FitFlops you'll get more exercise while doing just exactly what you're normally doing. (*slow twitch muscles produce energy by converting fats into energy aerobically)
4.FitFlops work your bum muscles more. FitFlops have been clinically proven to increase the amount of time that the gluteus maximus muscle is 'activated' during every single step.
5.FitFlops have been shown to have a significant effect on the toning muscles of your thighs: The rectus femoris muscle (one of the large muscles in the group of muscles in your thigh) is activated for a longer period of time while walking in FitFlops than while normally shod or barefoot .
6.Walking in FitFlops is like walking barefoot, but a little bit better. According to a study done at the University of Salford in Manchester, UK, the FitFlop wearer's gait is very similar to that of a barefoot walker, but the added cushion provided by the EVA midsole helps reduce joint strain and absorb shock. In fact, several FitFlop wearers have already reported relief from back pain after a few days of wearing them.
7.FitFlops make it easier to stay in shape. Just throw them on while you're running errands, walking to work, or working around your house. Most first-time FitFlop wearers report feeling their muscles working more, while 'fitter' wearers feedback has been more toward great comfort and cushion. One woman reported feeling like she'd had a 'bum-blasting' workout after a half an hour of FitFlop-shod walking.

Jewelya Ianniciello Rates Z-CoiL #1 When Added to Her Regimen For Sciatica Relief and Healthy, Natural Lifestyle Changes


Jewelya has followed her passion for social work since she was 18 years old. She started as a certified day care teacher, then worked as an outreach coordinator with youth. Seven years of college at the Tacoma branch of the UW earned her a social work degree with an emphasis on chemical dependency counseling and a specialty in crisis work for youth and families. This was in addition to doing volunteer work in the field.
Through these years of college she supported herself working on a labor product making ice cream for seven years. The repetitious lifting caused an injury to her left sciatic nerve. From the L&I claim she learned she was lifting four thousand to four thousand five hundred pounds repetitiously through out the day at her job.
She was out of work for a year due to this work-related injury. That first month she couldn't move at all. For quite awhile she was not able to lift any weight.
This was especially hard to take since she had been an athlete. From middle school until 27 years old she had run track and was a sprinter. Sprinters have a particularly annoying tingling in the ball of their feet.
Rehabilitation included massage, yoga, and a chiropractor working on C1-C4 since these affected the rest of her spine. The rebuilding process consisted of five years of physical therapy. This was needed to get the sciatic pain under control. However, the pain always came back to the sciatic nerve especially when she had been on her feet all day.
Her twenty years in social work has now culminated in her current positions. She does ER work at the Franciscan Hospital in Tacoma as well as crisis work in the field for the Hospital as a social worker. Additionally she does more crisis work for Pierce County.
She works 10-12 hour shifts on her feet. Adding in lifestyle walking after hours, she is on her feet on average 15 hours per day.
Nurses at the hospital told her about the Z-CoiL footwear in glowing testimonials. One nurse had thrown out all of her other shoes and she now owns five pair of Z-CoiLs. Every one hears about the Z-CoiL shoes from her.
Jewelya started wearing the Z-CoiL footwear four-five months ago. She came to Z-CoiL of Seattle to buy her first pair of White Freedom 2000. Now she has returned to buy a pair of Mary Janes (Taos with strap) for a friend of hers that has hip pain.
The first week she wore them three days at home first. Then she worked her long shifts wearing only the Z-CoiL shoes.
"I had No Sciatic Pain Throughout The Day!"
She noticed that aching tired feeling in her feet went away as well. She is pain free with no issues with her sciatic nerve pain.
An added benefit is that if she does not have time to do the stretching she needed to have done for the day, the Z-CoiL footwear compensates for it.
Jewelya has done her own research asking for feedback from the various nurses who wear the Z-CoiL shoes at work. Her results: " Nurses from heavier to lighter shape all say...The Z-CoiL Shoes Have Been A Blessing!"
Remember she mentioned that sprinters have that annoying tingling in the balls of her feet? She no longer gets the tingling wearing the Z-CoiLs.
A one week conference for the International Social Work Fellowship in Finland brought 232 attendees from 32 countries. Jewelya just returned yesterday from attending the conference. Everyone has a chance to share the latest ideas to further the profession. Z-CoiLs came up in the conversation quite a bit when attendees saw her wearing them.
Jewelya says,"My focus is holistic care and life changes to sustain healthy things in the life of someone experiencing a crisis. I review nutrition and other healthy helpful ideas for the body. I have added Z-CoiL to the helpful, healthy ideas I recommend, especially for those suffering from foot, leg, or back pain issues. Through access to the Internet website, I was able to better inform the other conference attendees of the Z-CoiL footwear."
We at Z-CoiL of Seattle are thrilled to add such a passionate Jewelya to the ranks of our evangelists spreading the word about Z-CoiLs. We extend our appreciation to you for making the long trip from Tacoma to visit us and for your referrals.

Twelve Hour Days Standing and Walking at Work (in the ER) is Not Natural


Edward Suddath, RN discovered the Z-CoiL footwear twelve years ago. He shared his Z-CoiL journey last week when he came to our Z-CoiL Footwear Store at the base of Capital Hill (1201 Pine St) in Seattle all the way from the Tri-Cities.
He was looking for a natural solution for his chronic foot pain.
Diagnosed years ago with acquired neuropathy and ankle pain, standing and walking has been very demanding and painful.
"I have been working as an ER nurse for 24 years. Standing and walking is not a natural expectation in one's work-a-day-world. So to have a shoe that makes your feet say "ahh" while working, walking, standing and trying to make a living 40 hours a week, is a true God-send."
Edward came in to buy a pair of Work Boots. We at Z-CoiL of Seattle have work boots available with a ASTM composite toe. There are a few steel toed work boots still available that are ANSI approved. Since they are in limited supply, please call ahead so we can check for your size. If neither of those are required, a regular toed boot is also available.
Edward assures you, "The investment in Z-CoiL is worth every penny especially as to the comparative cost of regular tennis shoes. Since they help so much, and last so long, the cost is probably less than all the Nike, Addidas, Prince and K-Swiss I have bought in the interim."
The long lasting component of the Z-CoiL shoes is in addition to the added component of fewer likely visits to the doctors office. Think of the value you are getting in your investment!
Edward is one of our evangelists," Just try 'em and you'll be convinced you have made a good decision for the future of your health and well-being."

"Outstanding Shoe", Says John L. Nichols Today at Z-CoiL of Seattle


"If I hadn't kicked a pallet while I was working at Home Depot, my Z-CoiL work boots would have lasted even longer. That accident ripped apart the upper part of the shoe. Fortunately,my foot was OK. As it was the work boots with the enclosed coil gave me 2 1/2 years of relief.", says John N.
John came in for his third pair of Z-CoiL shoes, this time for his second pair of hiking boots. The first pair were grey, these are the new brown ones. He was able to revitalize his previous shoes getting a new set of coils as needed to replace the older pair over the years. This is a good option for sprucing up your Z-CoiL shoes for added performance until the upper wears out. He wears out the outside of his shoes since he walks to the outside of his foot. Of course it is recommended you replace your Z-CoiL shoes every year for maximum performance.
Today we put him on the I-step pressure analysis to assess his feet and their pressure points. John was fitted with a pair of top grade over-the counter Lynco orthotics. He could feel how the support from the Lynco's would help him right away. This added support should help with the wear on his shoes also since it gives motion control, especially for pronation.
He bought his first pair in 2003 at the Puyallup store that is no longer there. He plans on coming to visit us at the Puyallup Fair. We plan on being there from Sept. 16-27 in the Showplex Building, Booth # 0514.
John first heard about the Z-CoiL shoes from reading an article in a magazine. After his online search he was convinced the Z-CoiL footwear would help relieve his suffering from nagging foot, leg and back pain at the end of 8-9 hours standing and walking on concrete at Home Depot of Puyallup.
John has been diagnosed with degenerative joint disease in his spinal discs. In the past he had to take Tylenol with codeine for the pain, which he hated doing. "Z-CoiL has made a world of difference! Only when I twist my back out at work do I need to take those medications. No more end of the day foot, leg and back pain.", says John.
John is eager to spread the word about how these shoes have helped him. He says" Four people at work are now wearing these Z-CoiL's because of me telling them about how they helped me. This is an outstanding shoe that I would recommend for everyone."

New CoiLs Refurbished Running Shoes from Z-CoiL of Seattle 1201 Pine St


Donald Midkiff came in this week to purchase 2 sets of replacement coils for his jogging Z-CoiL shoes.
He bought his Freedom 2000 Z-CoiLs 5 years ago in Arizona at the age of 71 years young.
He had been jogging for 25 years at that time and started to have knee pain. He had heard about the Z-CoiL footwear and decided to give them a try.
Two weeks after wearing the pain relief footwear, his knee pain went away.
Mr. Midkiff is retired. He was self-employed owning a refinishing office furniture outlet.
He still jogs 2-3 times a week less than 2 miles. He is the only jogger in the Lynnwood complex where he lives. It took 5 years for the soles of the heels to wear out probably since he keeps his mileage down and only wears the footwear when he jogs. Now with his new replacement coils he will have refurbished the shoes quite a bit.
He tells people he knows about them. They want to know how they are working for him.
Mr. Midkiff is a snowbird and migrates to Arizona in the winter. He will purchase his next pair of Z-CoiL footwear from our Z-CoiL of Seattle store located at 1201 Pine St. Seattle, Wa.
If you want to learn more information about the footwear please call us at 206-838-7338.

Mary Zimniewicz Trades in Her 4 Year Old Z-CoiL Shoes for a New Pair



Mary Z. works on hard concrete floors at the Issaquah Home Depot. Four and a half years ago friends told her about the ZcoiL shoes since she was having such a problem with foot and back discomfort.


Every night she used to have to elevate her feet on three pillows to make the pain go away after being eight hours on concrete. She would slip disc in her back three times a day.


She bought her first pair of Freedom 2000 from the now defunct Bellevue store four years ago. This is an amazing testimonial to how long these shoes hold up under such intense use. She wears the Z-CoiL shoes with her orthotics made at Group Health. We explained how we stock an array of great ready made orthotic arch supports here at Z-CoiL of Seattle (1201 Pine St, Seattle, Wa.)


For her second pair she searched our website and Zcoil website. She saw there a new style recently introduced- the Z-Trek. So she made the trip from Sammamish to buy her second pair in four years.

David Graduates From ASU With President Obama Presiding




David graduated from Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona with President Obama giving the Commencement Speech in May. It was a rousing speech meant to encourage a graduating class of 8,000, some of whom cannot find employment.
David graduated from the honors college, summa cum laude, with a degree in computer engineering. He carried the entrance flag for his department since he had the highest GPA for the department (during the engineering graduation ceremony). His honors thesis had to do with cross tracking usage of various social networking sites. This information can be used for a variety of purposes.
He will be employed by General Dynamics after graduation. Congratulations David!

Terrasoles The Comfort Shoe Is In Stock


We are carrying the terrasole shoe at the Z-CoiL of Seattle store located at 1201 Pine St, Seattle, WA.
Terrasoles outdoors lifestyle footwear, targets the void many people face when transitioning from their active footwear into something that is more comfortable and casual, yet remains functional. Terrasoles' hybrid design appeals to those whose hearts belong to the spirit of the great outdoors.
"Terrasoles redefine the casual after sport shoe. We use technology to create lightweight, flexible styles with unique support and shock attentuating features. Our vision is one of a young-in-attitude, active consumer who participates in or is inspired by activities such as hiking, running, rafting or travel," says Jerry Hemphill, President of Terrasoles Brand.
The envionment also is top in mind when we consider Terrasoles components. We utilize enviornmentally friendly elements wherever possible. Our packaging and other collaterals are being produced on recycled stocks with soy inks, and we are using high quality fleece made from recycled materials in some travel and cold weather styles.
It is designed as a comfort shoe to be worn inside or out and is machine washable. The insoles are removeable to fit in your orthotic or arch support.
Our ZCoiL store is branching out in supplying a variety of your shoe needs.

Treating foot pain without surgery

By GLORIA CAMPOS / WFAA-TV

DALLAS - While the women's dress shoe industry is a $15 billion annual business, another $5 billion is spent each year trying to find relief for aching feet.

But there is some good news: Most foot pain can be treated without surgery.

"This is public enemy number one," said Dr. Kelly Walker while eyeing a high-heeled sandal in a catalog. "They are beautiful and I would like to be able to wear them every day, but I can't either."

Walker, a podiatrist, said she knows about foot pain first hand since she suffers from plantar fasciitis. (Read More, Watch Video)

Kevin Gallagher Has Good Looking Shoe for Being Six Years Old


Kevin G. has been a kindergarten teacher for 28 years at Bryant Elementary and gets frequent comments from the kids about his Z-Coils and their springiness.
Mr. Gallagher had two rear end car accidents in 1989. The injuries from this developed into a herniated disc in his lower lumbar region in 2003. The herniated disc was so painful he was "put on his knees". He went to the ER where he was put on brace crutches for 3 weeks, then regular crutches for three more weeks. His massage therapist, Anthony Michaels at Evergreen Chiropractic, referred him to our store at 1201 Pine St.for the Z-CoiL pain relief footwear.
He also went to an acupuncturist.
He followed up with research into the Z-coil footwear on the internet and decided to go for it when he saw coverage in the evening Pacific Northwest Magazine and in the paper. His first visit here, there was a nurse telling about how all the nurses on her floor wore the Z-CoiL so she wanted to try them out. This really convinced him he was making the right decision.
What was even more dramatic was the results he got immediately while trying on the shoes. He came in on crutches and he was able to walk out without the crutches. He was able to put weight on his legs and back for the first time since the injury in 2003.
This gave him much needed independence such as doing more things on his own, walking and coming back to his full self with a better quality of life.
"Standing in these shoes is so different than regular shoes since they give such a shock absorption to your step in the heel. For three years these were all I wore. After that the injury improved. Now he can wear them less-only two times a week is necessary typically since I am so much improved". He credits the shoes and his medical treatment together as the reason for his improvement.
Congratulations on such a recovery! He is a testimony to how long lasting and well made the Z-Coil pain relief footwear are to last six years. When will he get his second pair?

Cynthia VanDevender is a Winner of Copper Socks

Meredy Davis Converted her Open to Enclosed Z-CoiL Footwear


Meredy Davis came in to exchange her open coils for enclosed coils on her Black Freedom Z-CoiL pain relief footwear that she just purchased last Friday.

She has worked at Safeco Field and the Key Arena for the past 4 years. Her legs and back are already not as tired after standing for so long at work on the concrete surfaces from wearing her new Z-CoiL, pain relief footwear purchased at our store located at 1201 Pine St.

She has been telling her co-workers the Z-CoiL, pain relief footwear, really work.
She had special fitting issues since she has narrow, bony feet. We used the side type insoles to take up the width, used extra padding for the bony prominences under the balls of her feet, and rotated her coils 90 degrees.

Jon Dalton Tells His Friends About Z-CoiL


Jon D. came in recently to buy open coils instead of enclosed coils for his work boots. He bought the boots this past February, but prefers the look of the open coil.

He used to wear Dr. Scholl insoles, but the Lynco arch supports help so much more, especially since they have the extra metatarsal support...and they last longer too. He bought a new pair of Lyncos today.

Jon D. tells his friends about the Z-CoiL and how it has helped his calf spasms go away. He used to have whole leg spasms which have gone away as well.He works graveyard on tile as a cashier at the Wallingford Chevron Extra Mile Store. He is either on the tile in the store or on concrete when he is on the lot. This used to cause both knees to be sore. The pain relief footwear, Z-COiLs, have really improved this and his quality of life all around.

Lilli and Bob Bennett got interviewed by Janet and Naryan during the recent 6 year anniversary celebration. This will broadcast on their radio program all week www.you'reloved.com.
They said, "We bought our first pair six years ago in Arizona. I wear them for zero impact. I had hip problems and they helped a lot. I exercise a lot. It corrected my hammertoe problems since I don't have to grip my toes any longer. I no longer have the hip problem. I have less leg pain. I turn 80 in June." In addition to the 7 pairs Lilli owns, including 2 Mary Jane's and suede zueco's, she bought the Loryn style today.
Bob has spinal stenosis, L4/L5. He used to be a Seattle fireman so he was unable to wear them all the time. He says they are comfortable and pleasant to wear.
They have owned property here and in Arizona, but 2 years ago they sold their Arizona home and moved here.Now he does not walk as much since the weather is colder. Bob is 62 years ago and owns three pairs of Z-CoiL-taos clog and black freedom are two of them.
Lilli says she has literally sold so many of these shoes to everyone she meets. "I need a lot of business cards to take with me so I can hand them out."
