Cool or Not: Z-CoiL Sneakers

Z-CoiL Sneakers ($189.95) are made to help relieve foot, leg and back pain by reducing impact to the body. These interesting shoes claim to help prevent Achilles Tendinitis, Arthritis, Bunions, Plantar Fasciitis as well as back, ankle and foot pain. You can walk and run in them, so the sky's the limit. The coil technology is also supposed to ease tension and stress in your feet, which is a promise most shoes do not offer. Sounds comfortable, but they look like some sort of moon-hopper's shoe. Of course I am interested in what you guys think - are they cool or not?

My mom owns a store that sells these and I wear them everyday! I'm only 20 but they make my life so much easier...its like you're not even walking on the ground! They actually have some cuter styles if you're looking for something to wear's not for the close-minded, fyi.

Interesting. I'd actually want to try them out! But it looks like you would mostly be hopping around than actually running. :?

I'd be willing to go for a run or a brisk walk in these, what with my flat feet - but it's going to be at the crack of dawn on a deserted street. No way I'm walking around in broad daylight, among mortals, with these on...

I have seen a couple doctors wear them - but I am not to sure I would want to hit the local gym in these. They just seem a little too far fetched for me. Maybe once they hit the main stream more.

I have Plantar Fasciitis, so I'm intrigued, but they do look goofy.

mimiscial - I just wrote a similar comment (but it got flagged because I used the wrong word to describe him). But I totally feel you on this!

Does anyone remember the episode when Kramer is mistaken for a retarded person because of those sneakers? Thats what this reminds me of!

Does this bring that Seinfeld episode where Kramer wears crazy sneakers with round pads in the front to mind for anyone else? I know that's a bad description of the Kramer shoes, but I can't remember them very well. But there's definitely a connection between these those and the ones in Seinfeld!

While I think these shoes are ugly as sin, apparently they're great for your posture and anyone with foot pain. I guess sometimes you have to sacrifice style!

This would have been nice BEFORE I got Achilles Tendonitis. Let me tell you what...a cortizone shot in your not cool, or fun. anyone else know what I am talking about? although these are not cool looking, it would be worth it sompared to the alternative of not being able to stand on my feet for more than a couple hours or not being able to walk propperly in the morning or having that needle plunged directly into the most tender spot of my achilles tendon....*shivers from the thought of the pain* _________________________________________________________ Why don't you wear the face you have when I am not around?
