Pain Relief Footwear

Pain Relief Footwear(Bellevue, WA)— "The only way that I could walk any reasonable distance at all was with a cane. I dreaded going into those big warehouse stores. It took forever to get to where I was going and it hurt the whole time," says Bellevue, WA resident, Roger Lewis Posey, who’s suffered from bursitis in both heels for more than 10 years. " I hated using those electric scooters that the stores offered because I knew that I might be using one when someone who needed it worse would be without. I could walk; it just hurt…a lot."
Millions of people like Roger suffer from chronic and debilitating pain in their feet, legs and back, even after years of trying everything from cortisone shots to surgery. His relief came after trying on a pair of funny-looking shoes with a large steel spring in the heel, called Z-CoiL® Pain Relief Footwear™. (Read More. Click on Title)

The Johnson County Sun: New shoe store will put a spring in your step

The Johnson County Sun: "Holly Stone (Photo) was skeptical when her mother first tried to convince her to wear a pair of Z-Coil shoes.

With thick springs where the heel should be, the shoes look like something out of a comic book. But John and Peggy Stone of Overland Park insisted their daughter should try a pair, convinced that the shoes would help relieve her knee pain.

They were right. Stone liked the shoes so much, she opened Spring Action Footwear and More in February at 7295 W. 97th St. in the Windmill Shopping Center.

'We've all had pain relief from it and so I just wanted to be able to help people out here,' said Stone, 23.

Z-Coil shoes were invented by New Mexico businessman Al Gallegos, who started selling them commercially in 1996. The spring heels are designed to absorb the impact from walking. Built-in orthotic insoles provide support. The shoes sell for $150 to $200 and are marketed to people with plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, lower back pain and other foot and ankle conditions.

'My parents both bought a pair of shoes about a year ago in Ruidoso, New Mexico. They both had pain relief and just wouldn't quit talking about them nor would they quit wearing them,' Stone said."

EZ Shoe Blog: KTEH Auction underway and the Z-CoiL's are a STEAL!

Z-CoiL Footwear: "As of this posting, the current bid for Z-CoiL's is $70! Unbelievable! That's substantially below wholesale, so if you are reading this and want that next pair, grab them now!

What am I saying! I should bid to get them cheaper than from corporate and then resell them!

Till later,

Hip Hop Shoe Shop:Testimonial

Z-Coil Shoes-Testimonials: "I have just purchased your Z-Coil Hiker and must say, 'Praise the Lord!' I was injured 16 months ago in an accidental fall that crushed both my heels and disrupted the ankle joints. I have been in excruciating pain ever since...I was ready to try anything and after viewing (the Z-Coil) website, ordered a pair...As soon as I stood I was on cloud nine! They weren't the slightest bit awkward or clumsy and were very stable. It is unbelievable the amount of impact they take out of each step. The built in orthotic has helped my ankle stability greatly.

Z-coil shoe puts a spring into the wearer's steps

The Z-Coil shoe, with a steel spring mounted on its heel, looks a bit like the spring-loaded shoes Wile E. Coyote sometimes wears in his fruitless pursuit of the Road Runner.
But Z-Coils have a serious purpose: an escape from pain. The spring suspension system absorbs the impact of walking or running. And despite its high-heel look, the Z-Coil is designed to offer greater stability than other shoes.

Ruth Lamers, 70, of Colorado Springs has worn Z-Coils for about three years. The shoes have eased her chronic back pain and truly put spring into her step. Before, walking half a block was a struggle. Now she takes a half-hour walk on most days.

"I can go shopping," she says happily. "I still get tired if I do too much, but I can shop like normal people."
