Spira Shoes !! Yippee!!

  1. From reading the posts here, I decided to try the Spira shoes. Coils in the shoes, but not ugly or a tripping hazard like the z-coils. I love them.

    I am overweight, have back problems, arthritis in knees....generally pain everywhere and feel crippled after an hour on my feet....

    I walked for 4 hours in the hospital volunteering without an ounce of pain! Thank you Spira!!!! (I know 4 hrs isn't much for you working nurses already,...but I am just a SAHM who is starting to go back to school)....


    The next day I wore my merrell sports again to shop in the mall with my dd....and after 1 hour I practically crawled home due to the knee and back pain.....

    I have ordered another pair of Spira's...and all my other so called walking shoes are going to charity!!

    Just had to share my story!

    Thanks for posting this info!!! I have dreamed for YEARS of having spring-coil shoes, but the Z-Coil is too heavy (not to mention ugly!) and I know I'd probably be clumsy in them. Makes one wonder why they didn't come up with these sooner..........I'm going to try a pair and see how well they work for me.

    I have plantar fasciitis ... both heel... really bad this week in one heel. ??? Taking prednisone pills helps along with specific a.m. & p.m. stretching. I too can't be on my feet and longs very long it seems. Do you think the Spira shoe would help this?

    Are STNA's and LPN's and RN's (in Ohio--at Ohio hospitals etc.), really allowed to wear this style of shoe? They look like a tennis shoe.
