    Shoes with the big springs on the heels...
    Lots of people around my area are wearing them...
    kinda costly but if they work then its worth it...

    The web site says they are great for fibromyalgia...

    I googled Z Coil / fibromyalgia

    although you are right, if they work for you then they are worth it.

    If you would purchase them, see if they have a return policy and from what i read on reviews they usually have a $25 restock fee. Maybe wear them around in the store before purchasing to get the feel of them on your feet. I hope they work for you. Please post again if you do get them. Oh heck, post even if you don't purchase them, would like to hear your opinion of just trying them on.

    Hello

    My sister is a store clerk and is on her feet 8-10 hours per day had a lot of pain in her lower back her DR told she should try the Shoes and she did but within 2 week of using them she fell and broke her RT hip due to & the shoes her ortho who replaced her hip last week said he has treated 13 people in the last 1 yr in her age group 45 yrs. With either Hip,knee, and broken ankle's so be careful when thinking about these shoe's .

    Take care

    Thanks for that horrible info...
    I never thought about that....
    That would be like trading one pain for another....

    I read only good about these but this put a new perspective on them...

    Also I pasted you reply on the chit chat board
    on a post over there about these shoes...
