Zapatos Z-Coil para combatir la fascitis plantar

If you have  chronic plantar fasciitis  or a heel spur, you may be willing to try anything to find relief. Z-CoiL shoes claim to be the answer. It’s even in their motto: “Shoes for pain relief.” They have a built-in orthotic and 200% more cushioning than   regular running or  walking shoes  . But their claim to fame and the reason you may have noticed them is that they have a large, partially exposed spring on the heel of each shoe.

Z-CoiL shoes for feet with problems

Shoe stores  that sell Z-CoiL shoes  have many testimonials from satisfied customers. They were invented by a runner, for runners. While they come in athletic styles, they also have men’s and women’s dress shoes, sandals, boots, and models where the coil is not exposed.

But all Z-CoiL shoes have a few things in common. Inside is a rigid Z-orthosis designed to equalize pressure on the sole of the foot. They have a cushioned forefoot with a rocker base that aims to give a natural rocking motion with each step. Then there is a coil spring in the heel, attached to the upper component of the shoe and to the heel pad. Shoes vary in the style of the upper and whether or not they fit into the coil so that it is not visible.

The spring is adjustable in 90 degree increments, which the Z-CoiL uses to provide more or less motion control for  overpronation  . The spring and heel pad can be replaced separately from the upper, which could increase the life of the shoe.

While Z-CoiL shoes are available online, there are some major benefits to shopping in-store, where you can properly fit and adjust the coil to suit your motion control needs.

Z-CoiL shoes are designed to relieve various types of foot, leg and back pain by mitigating the impact of each step.



Nurses and other hospital workers with plantar fasciitis issues have testimonials about the benefits of wearing Z-CoiL shoes while providing patient care. Medical professionals have to be on their feet for most of the day, and many nurses easily log more than  10,000 steps  during the workday alone. To make matters worse, the floor surface of most hospitals is hard and unforgiving. But these shoes can help make your feet more comfortable. A padded shoe can reduce impact, while a metal coil in the heel provides maximum cushioning.

For outdoor use, there may be issues with coils picking up leaves and debris from the sidewalk, grass, or when walking on nature trails. However, you can buy versions of these shoes that have a covered spring, or upgrade to a pair that has an enclosed spring.

Inside, the Z-CoiL shoes have a rigid orthotic which may be suitable for some people, but certainly not for everyone. For chronic plantar fasciitis sufferers, this shoe is worth a try.

One of the biggest downsides to this product is the high price, which can range from $150 to $300 or more depending on the specific style. That said, it’s probably worth the money if you have significant foot pain and the shoes work for you. Plus, the manufacturer offers a risk-free 30-day trial, so you can get a refund if they don’t work for you.


Other spring and coil shoes

Spira shoes  also use a coil for impact cushioning and are highly recommended by foot care experts. The wavy coils used by this shoe brand are completely encased within the sole, and the shoes look no different from other running, walking, or casual shoes. They also don’t weigh more than typical shoes (as some Z-CoiL shoes do) and are available through a variety of vendors.
