Z-Coil Shoes - page 2

Hi everyone. I'm considering these shoes since I get pain on my feet, legs and lower back. Dansko shoes was alright but now, they really hurt. I've read some info regarding these Z-Coil shoes and I'm... Read More

    Thanks. I'll consider the zcoils if I even find myself working 12 hour shifts again.

    They were worth every penny. I forget the style name, but I got the leather sneakers. They're comfy, stable, and easy to clean.

    How much do these shoes cost? I went on th website but of course not prices. They look dangerous- I have a bad habit of twising my ankles all the time espcially in high heels. Would these cause me problems? I like my Rockers alot but I am always up for something better.

    They look funny but trust me, you can go running in them ... I do anyway

    They aren't all that "different" from regular shoes - they just have a different design. Once you're used to them, you won't even think about 'em...

    I paid 200 for my pair and as PeachPie said - they're worth every shinny penny! I know I'm going to be standing for hours on my feet - so I think of these as "investments". Less abuse means now means my feet last longer later on

    Z-coil have new models with the coil enclosed.

    I was diagnosed recently with plantar fascitis, heel spurs, and falling arches. The podiatrist recommended buying a pair of Z-coil shoes (along with my expensive hi-tech arch supports... lol).

    My 12 hour shifts in the ER go by so quickly now. What a change from coming home and having to take a pain pill just to go to sleep!

    I bought the 'Freedom 2000' sneaker. It was the best decision ever.

    Yes. The shoes are expensive. But I haven't read any comments about the durability and replacement parts over the life of the shoe. The shoes are designed to have replacement parts so you don't have to buy a new pair every 3-6-12 months. The spring and the heel pad have an average 4-6 month life span (depending on usage). The spring and heel pad can be replaced for a $40 charge. Over the life of the shoe the money spent is not that much more than buying new shoes every 3-4 months. I don't know about you but I easily spend $40 every 3 months on shoes.

    I love my pair and plan to buy more for around the house.
