Our Store is closed effective Sept 17, 2016.

Unfortunately, after 13 years helping people lead a pain free life, we lost our lease and were forced to close our store.

You can still order Z-CoiL Footwear online but they will not be adjusted.  If you purchased from our store before, we probably have fitting notes on you and can help you adjust a new pair of Z-CoiL's.  If you have not purchased from us but have Z-CoiL's, we may be able to determine your adjustments from photo's and customize the shoe from you.  Contact us via email and we will check our records to see what we can do.

We have arranged a discount code for our customers when ordering online at zcoil.com.  At checkout, you will see a box for Coupon Code.  Simply enter zcoilsj in that box and you will get a 10% discount!  It would be best to send me an email first so I can look at any adjustments needed.  There is a good chance I can tell you what to enter in the comments box to have headquarters adjust the shoes before they ship them.  We are still looking at other ways to be able to help our customers and we will send an email out if we figure something out.

We can be reached at (408) 558-9596 or send an email to sales@ez-shoes.com.

My heartfelt thanks go out to all of my loyal customers that allowed me to pursue my passion for as long as I was able.  I wish you all the best in the future!

Z-CoiL® Technology

  Built Differently

  To Treat You Better

 Built-in Orthotic


  1. Better fit: The Z-Orthotic cradles each foot's curve for equal pressure distribution.


  2. Better stability.


  3. Most important: reduces your chances of getting heel spurs or plantar fasciitis (pain in mid-foot).

Adjustable Coil
for Over-Pronation
and Supination

Extra Forefoot Cushioning


    1. Primary factor in reducing forefoot pain.


    2. Superior longevity



Spring Suspension System

The Z-CoiL Spring is the primary factor in reducing skeletal pain and absorbing shock.

Flex Line

Your foot should only bend in one area — the ball of the foot. Z-CoiLs assist this natural flexing point with a permanent flex line.

The Shocking Truth


  • Walking Impact = 2 to 3 times your body weight

  • Running Impact = 3 to 5 times your body weight

Excessive impact is a major cause of foot, leg, and back pain.
Each step is a collision that sends shockwaves up your body.

Z-CoiLs reduce impact!

Here is how:

  • Four times more cushioning than any regular shoe.

  • Over 1 inch of heel cushioning (26 mm).
       - The steel coil is extremely "active" and counteracts all ground forces at lightning speed.

  • Over ¾ inch of forefoot cushioning (20 mm).
       - Neoprene based rubber is incredibly soft and stays resilient over time.

Z-CoiL footwear provides much greater shock reduction and better pressure distribution, when compared to conventional shoes.


 Rigid Support | The key to preventing foot pain.

Lack of forefoot cushioning can cause fractured metatarsal bones.

Achilles tendon can become sore or can tear with a lack of cushioning.

These two plantar ligaments can be stretched, bruised, or torn if there is poor mid-foot support.

Heel spurs, caused by the plantar ligaments pulling away from the heel bone, are a result of poor support.


Chances are you will experience foot pain several times during your life. This pain is often caused by plantar fasciitis or heel spurs. A rigid platform under your mid-foot and heel can prevent this.

The rigid Z-Orthotic prevents the plantar ligament from stretching, which causes mid-foot pain or plantar fasciitis. It also prevents the plantar ligament from detaching from the heel bone, the sole cause of heel spurs and the cause of most heel pain.

 Rigid Support: The key to preventing foot pain.

Z-CoiL Footwear: engineered around a rigid orthotic:

¾ length: extends from the heel to the metatarsal heads

  • Injection molded for:
         - Tremendous strength
         - Anatomical contouring for an
    amazing fit
         - Weight reduction

    Why rigid support?
    The plantar ligaments in your foot are prone to stretching and irritation that cause heel spurs and plantar fasciitis (mid-foot pain), when your arch is left unsupported.
