Customer Fitting

Have you ever had clothing tailored just for you? Well, now you can get the same custom fit for your feet! Trained and authorized Z-CoiL® faculties are able to adjust our footwear in many ways to accommodate your special needs. When Z-CoiL® shoes are properly fitted, they can provide substantial, if not complete, pain relief for many conditions affecting the feet, ankles, knees, hips, and back.

Our goal is to provide the maximum amount of pain relief that Z-CoiL® shoes can offer our customers.

Selecting the Appropriate Shoe

Whenever you visit a Z-CoiL® store, be sure to allow yourself ample time for the fitting process, particularly if you have multiple pain issues.

We will explain the design of the shoe, help you select the footwear that is most appropriate for your activities, and make sure the shoe is sized properly. Then you will be asked to spend about 15 minutes walking around the store to experience the “feel” of this unique footwear.

We will check your toe room, arch support, heel fit, and shoe width. We will also ask you to be specific about the pain you are experiencing so that we can focus on those issues.

Making Adjustments

Unlike most footwear on the market, Z-CoiL® shoes are adjustable. Once we examine the shape of your foot and the way you walk, we can make a variety of footwear adjustments to provide the maximum support and comfort possible, all while you wait.

We can adjust for flat feet, high arches, wide feet, bunions and corns, hammertoes, heel spurs, neuromas, and many other conditions that can be responsible for foot pain. We can also balance the shoes if you tend to over-pronate (feet roll in) or over-supinate (feet roll out).

If you are experiencing joint pain, you may have developed a pattern of walking that is putting too much pressure on the affected joint. In many cases, we can make adjustments to the footwear to relieve pressure on the joint.

Continuing Customer Care

Our stores maintain Customer Fitting Cards that document the adjustments made to your footwear. If you ever need to come in for an adjustment, the store has your fitting history on file. As an existing customer, you can even order additional pairs of shoes from that store over the phone and have them shipped directly to you!

Unlike the environments our ancestors walked, today's concrete and other hard surfaces are much less forgiving, resulting in significantly more stress to the body. Every day we experience thousands of collisions with the ground. The greater impact delivered up the kinetic chain, sometimes exacerbated by an improper gait cycle (over-pronation or supination), compromise the human body's ability to absorb and redistribute stress forces, causing injuries.

Impact Reduction, Stability and the Problem with Modern Footwear

Preventing stress injury and providing relief for existing injuries requires impact reductionㅡi.e., footwear that actually limits the amount of force that travels up the kinetic chain. However, cushioning impact alone will not ensure healthy joints and pain relief. Shoes that offer extra padding actually encourage atrophy in the muscles of the foot. Weak muscles can lead to a number of compensating movements, many of which direct stress forces to areas of the foot that are not designed to absorb impact. Unfortunately, most modern footwear has taken an either-or approach to solving the problem of increased impact along the kinetic chain. Either they provide cushiony soles to reduce the force of impact but allow the flexibility for soft tissues to move outside a normal range of motion, or they provide a rigid sole to keep the foot (and stress forces) in a natural range of motion but with very little impact-absorption, resulting in high impact all the way up the kinetic chain.

The Z-CoiL Solution

Z-CoiL Pain Relief Footwear is the only shoe that offers both the impact reduction and stability you need for pain relief, injury prevention and whole body support Z-CoiL shoes have the:

o Patented conical spring in the heel, which reduces impact by 40-60% (according to tests performed by the American Department of Energy) and provides energy return , reducing fatigue.
o Patented Z-Orthotic™ to stabilize tendons and ligaments.
o Rocker bottom sole that assists forward motion and limits movement during toe-off.
o Flex line at the forefront of the foot to encourage bending at the ball of the foot.
o ¾” Cushioning in the forefoot to protect delicate metatarsal/forefoot joints, ligaments and bones.
o Extra wide toe box to relieve pressure on toe joints.

All elements of our shoe design provide Z-CoiL treatmentㅡeffective pain relief from a number of lower body impact-induced conditions.
