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'
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."

Jan and Marshall Bronson Came All the Way From Whidby Island For Our Six Year Anniversary

Jan says,"My family owns 13 pairs of Z-CoiL footwear.". Jan and Marshall own the Compass Rose Bed and Breakfast on Whidbey Island. With her purchase today of the Z-Breeze style of shoes, she has four pairs.
They found out about the shoes from a customer in November of 2007. She bought her first pair from Mt. Vernon in December, a T-strap. In January her second pair was a Loryn purchased from our store. Her third pair was a pair of white Mary Jane's purchased in Anchorage.
When her mom came to visit from San Diego, they brought her right from the airport to 1201 Pine St, Z-CoiL of Seattle. She bought a pair of Z-CoiL footwear.
Marshall's first pair was a pair of Sandia. His second pair was a Z-Walker. This time he ordered a second pair of Sandia's. We were out of stock so we will ship them to him.
Marshall says, "In Alaska the Z-CoiL shoes don't transmit the cold like ordinary shoes. This is because of the inch of neoprene in the forefoot sole."
Marshall and Jan visit their daughter in Alaska from time to time. She has a pair of Z-CoiL as well. Her sister (from Twin Falls, Idaho) and sister-in law (from Wyoming) each have a pair of Z-CoiL.
Z-CoiL footwear are truly a family affair.

For The Past Six Years Z-CoiL(r) Store Has Changed Seattle Two Feet at a Time

Press Release:

World's Leading Pain Relief Footwear(tm) to Be Center Stage at OPEN HOUSE

(Seattle, WA)-For the past Six Years everyone in the Seattle area who suffers from crippling foot, leg or back pain has been able to discover for themselves the life-changing benefits of these revolutionary shoes. An established Z-CoiL(r) Pain Relief Footwear(tm) Store located at 1201 Pine St, Seattle, WA 98101 is holding its Sixth Anniversary Open House Celebration on February 6,7,8,2009.

Visitors will have an opportunity try out a variety of Z-CoiL(r) styles while enjoying light refreshments, door prizes and a raffle for free Z-coil shoes, copper and silver socks and more.

Best of all, AL Gallegos, the inventor of the Z-coil footwear will be visiting our store to meet you and tell his story about Z-coil.

Just visit out blog,, for a recent interview with Al, as well as hear brief, but powerful, quotes from our customers, telling how Z-CoiL footwear has changed their lives.

Z-CoiL(r) footwear is specially engineered to relieve foot, leg, and back pain. Please find a recent ergonomic study results on our blog, as well as studies by Sandia and Los Alamos Laboratories. The three main components are the conical shaped coil, the rocker sole forefoot with extra thick cushioning, and the rigid, built-in orthotic combine to counter the forces of foot, leg and back pain. Such total foot support and cushioning work together to reduce the shock of impact to the body and less impact means less pain.

Many podiatrists and orthopedic specialists agree. "I now commonly recommend Z-CoiL(r) footwear to my patients especially for plantar fascitis," says Doug Ichikawa, a Podiatric Physician and Surgeon with locations in Bellevue and Harborview.

Z-CoiL Footwear is gaining a tremendous and loyal following nationwide as word of its pain relief benefits is spreading.
