Now I can walk!

Lisa Burkenhagen, NT (posted on 24 October 2019)

I bought my first pair of Springy Feet shoes at the Perth Royal Show in September 2017. My husband and I were walking thru the display sheds and we walked passed the Springy Feet stall initially then I walked back to have a look and made a few enquiries. From that time I had been suffering with a heal spur for around 5 months and was in a lot of pain and was struggling to find a pair of shoes that I could actually walk in with no pain. From the moment I put on my first pair of Z-Coils and took a walk around I could not believe the relief I felt. I was so happy I could have cried. My job as a Police Officer was no longer in jeopardy. I could finally walk pain free. Now I'm just about to buy my second pair, I wouldn't buy any other shoes now. Thank you so much!

I thoroughly enjoy my Zcoils and wear them every day, the black ones to work and the grey ones at the weekend. I'd like to think that I have influenced a few people to investigate springy feet but I'm not sure they follow through.

Fran Hyde, WA (email received 3 Sept 2019)

The shoes are FABULOUS, have lived in them since purchase. The dragging pain between the (replaced) knee and hip, has improved immensely. The shock absorbent effect is very comforting. 

Margaret G, WA (email received 25 August 2019)

At the moment I'm travelling around Europe with my springyfeet and you should see the reaction. I've been stopped in the street, literally, numerous times with people asking about my shoes. Although the language is a bit hard to understand, the message of my shoes is not!

I've got the sandals and wear them with socks if the weather isn't quite so warm. I'm very comfortable wearing my springyfeet especially over the uneven footpaths of Tallinn, Riga and Vilnius. I'm only 1 month into my journey with 2 more to go. Exploring is a breeze. Thanks, Nikki.

Regards Margaret Gardner, a happy customer.

ankle fusion and bone transplant. these shoes gave me instant pain relief. Nikki was fantastic with her customer service. I can not recommend these high enough.

After being in a head on collision 20 years ago I ended up with some muscular skeletal problems and found walking difficult because of limping and increasing pain. Not only have Springy feet and their Z-Coil's given me the best comfort but have reduced limping and pain.

Thank you for selling me the best shoes ever. ​

I'm loving these shoes and socks!!!! My Plantar Fasciitis is now cured and my Morton's Neuroma is not activated by my springy feet hikers and fucia runners at all.
Thankyou so much for your fabulous customer service and your help in finding my right size and which shoe types would be suitable for my needs.
I don't even like taking them off because I am so comfy in them! I'm walking kilometres per day now and and am so grateful that these shoes have been invented and that you have brought them to Australia .
Kind regards Jenny

After 3 years of podiatry & physio to come across Nikki M (springy feet) the Z-Coil's have enabled me to pretty much do what I want without pain . Soooo Grateful to Nikki for spending the time to help me with "My Left Foot" Cheers Trevor.

After 11 years with a torn hip joint and avoiding surgery, Z Coil are the only shoes I can wear without being in pain. After an hour in my normal sneakers with expensive orthotics I experience quite severe pain in my hip. I now have 4 pairs and they are all I wear. I can walk my dog everyday and am pain free. They have saved my life.​

Murray M (posted on Word of Mouth, 2 July 2019) 

3 months after having foot surgery I was still having trouble walking. The Z Coil shoes gave me immediate relief by at least halving the pain I was experiencing. It is now about 7 months post op and although I still have pain when I walk while wearing the Z Coils the pain is much worse when I use other types of shoes or boots. I can't recommend the Z Coils strongly enough and thanks to Nikki for her advise.

Ben F (posted on Word of Mouth, 2 July 2019)

After having an ankle fusion I found the z coil work boots to be excellent for long hrs at work and can comfortably walk 10km+ in hard terrain with no issues 3.5 months post op. I just purchased the hikers to enjoy the outdoors, springy feet have been a pleasure to purchase from.​

Maloutou, New Zealand (posted on Word of Mouth, 2 July 2019)

I've had my boots for a few months now and absolutely love them. After 16 years of foot pain n no luck with any of the 6 podiatrist I saw n trying that many orthotics with no success. I am pain free in my left foot and about 80-90% pain free in my right foot. I work in the security industry standing alot so I need good shoes. Just bare in mind if standing still for long periods you will feel a little bit of pain, but it will pass if you move side to side or walk around. Springy feet worked wonders for me. Big Thank you n Awesome customer service.​

It was a pleasure meeting Nikki and discussing the Z Coil shoes. Choosing the style of shoe and getting the right fitment was easy and comfortable. These shoes are great! I started out with 2 pairs for about 6 months, then went back to add to my collection. They have enabled me to be on my feet for the whole day and not suffer for it. I would thoroughly recommend these shoes to anyone who has heel pain, or who just wants some fantastic support. I will not buy any other type of shoe from now on! Thanks Nikki.

Barry Evans, WA (posted on Word of Mouth, 14 May 2019)

The shoes are a good fit, service was great and the quality is good value for money. I would recommend them for anyone suffering Plantar fasciitis or heel pain. After trying numerous therapies, I found that these shoes are the best to give long-term relief.

Linda J, WA (posted on Word of Mouth, 20 April 2019)

I have had problems with my feet for years, starting with heel spurs some years ago. This was treated with anti-inflammatory medication and cortisone injections – neither made any difference.

Then my feet were hurting in other areas and I was diagnosed with planter fasciitis. Again medication, visits to podiatrists where I had orthotics, dry needling and more pain killers, all with no lasting effect. Then I ended up with Morton’s Neuroma in both feet. I tried all sorts of injections and more medication before resorting to surgery. While the surgery helped, the pain was still there and I was only able to stand/walk for an hour maximum before the pain took over and I have to ‘rest’….my life consisted of timing myself, whether it was for house work, shopping and at times even working. Thankfully I work in admin, so sitting was the relief I got to be able to sustain my job.

I heard about Springy Feet via my wonderful lady who I see for cranial balancing. She suggested I check them out. I met with Nikki and haven’t looked back. My feet are in a comfort zone with these shoes that they have not experienced for years. I am now able to live my life as ‘normal’…..walking is no problem at all. It is truly amazing. I was very sceptical to say the least, but willing to try anything that might offer some relief. I was not expecting to feel such comfort and ‘no pain’.

Nikki was wonderful, she spent so much time with me to make sure my feet were comfortable and pain free before leaving her premises. She does not rush you to make a decision, or make you feel like you are taking up her time. She had to adjust my shoes a few times before they were comfortable, but once they were done, I haven’t looked back.

My sister was in the same, if not worse situation as me. I recommended she try these shoes and she is the same, has not looked back and running around totally pain free in her springy shoes.

Thank you Nikki for the care you have given me and nothing has been too much trouble for you.

I’m so grateful and so lucky to have come across these wonderful shoes that have been life changing.

The best comfortable shoes I’ve ever had!
Cannot wear anything else after this experience !
Customer service second to none !!
Will be an embassedor for the brand with pleasure !️️

Nikki provides excellent service, the shoes are unbelievably comfortable and have helped my feet heal while going about my normal daily routines. I tried everything else before purchasing Z-Coils. I now have three pairs ( sneakers, sandals and boots) and don’t wear anything else. Definitely worth every cent!​

FJA, Winthrop, WA (posted on Word of Mouth, 4 February 2019)

I purchased the Outback safety toe back in October 2018 via recommendation from a friend and yes great shoes my legs and feet do not ache like they used too. The only negative is and it is stated on the pamphlet that care must be taken when climbing a ladder other than that they are great shoes. Nikki was so obliging when I originally purchased the wrong size shoes she immediately sent the correct size shoes even before I returned the wrong size shoes.​

Dawn, W (posted on Word of Mouth, 18 October 2018)

I was sceptical at first. I thought the shoes were no more comfortable than my sneakers, but when I stood up the next morning and the familiar pain in my heel wasn’t there, I was blown away!

After a long day at work my feet still ache, but the acute pain has gone!

Pauline Miles, WA (posted on Word of Mouth, 18 August 2018)

Even with my inserts in my shoes I still have a lot of pain by the end of the day. Z-Coils took that pain away instantly. I wear my springy shoes ALL the time and at the end of the day my feet don't have the pain I used to experience. People see these shoes and ask me about them, I even give them a try and they are amazed. I tell them " you know that song I will walk 1000 miles ", well I can walk 5000 miles haha. These shoes have been a godsend. I love,love,love,love them.

Colleen Langlois, WA (posted on Word of Mouth, 28 June 2018)

My experience has been totally awesome. I have had immediate relief, all over, feet, legs, back. Burning feet subsided within a few hours. I am now able to walk the length of my local shopping mall without pain. Absolutely wonderful!!!

Patricia C, WA (posted on Word of Mouth, 13 May 2018)

I have the Sidewinder sandals and the Oilivia boots. They are amazing. I do a lot of walking on concrete at work. Without Z-coils my feet really ache. With Z-coils, my feet just don’t get sore or tired. They are also my go to for any event where I know I will be standing for a long time. I can feel they change my posture and support my knees and hips too. There is just so much support. It’s like suspension for your body. Nikki provides a great service, she really knows her stuff. If you get achey, sore feet for whatever reason, do your body a favour and put it on some z-coils! ;-)​

Mark, Bunbury, WA (posted on Word of Mouth, 17 April 2018)

the shoes have been the best purchase. not only very comfortable but pain free achillies. can't rave enough​

Lloyd, WA (posted on Word of Mouth, 17 April 2018)

My old pal, Osteo Arthur-itis, has been with me for over 10 years, causing stiffness and pain in both knees. I also suffer lower back pain and scoliosis as a result of a shorter right leg. I have spent a lot of money on various types of footwear including custom made and off the shelf orthotics, and relief only seems temporary, and I have been determined to try any non-surgical procedure, for as long as I can bear the discomfort of Mr Arthur-itis.

After reading Nikki Miller’s article on Z-Coil pain relief footwear, in the Fremantle Herald, I immediately contacted Nikki for an appointment to try out a pair of Z-Coil shoes - I came home with two bought pairs of Z-Coil shoes, the Sidewinder and Freedom Black. Now I can walk confidently knowing that each step with my Z-Coils provide a lot of relief from pain and stiffness in the knees and lower back. In fact, I can now walk longer and at a quicker pace pain free with the Z-Coils than with my many collection of the ordinary shoes.
Z-Coils are brilliant shoes…excellent shock absorbers! I do not require to wear orthotics, and Z-Coil heel lifts are fitted to my right shoe for my shorter right leg....couldn’t imagine the improvement it provided with a simple and cheap device.....Awesome! Awesome!Awesome!

I am so fortunate to have met Nikki Miller of Springy Feet, who is always helpful and patient. Nikki provided me with lots of encouragement and confidence.
I gained more confidence in this non-surgical treatment for my arthritic knees and lower back pain, as I am not yet ready to live with ‘orthobot’ knees.

Many thanks Nikki.

SAVED A MARRIAGE! (As stated by my wife) No more sore feet.
I purchased the Outback Hiker shoes with the enclosed heel and a Z-Fit custom arch insole.

Anthony Menchetti, WA (posted on Word of Mouth, 6 April 2018)

I've been fortunate enough to buy many good things throughout my life but one of the greatest and most valuable towards good health and comfort are these spring shoes and sandals that have been introduced to me at a stall at the Camping and Caravan Show and to-date I've blessed the day I found them.

Elaine, S (posted on Word of Mouth, 20 December 2017)

Springyfeet shoes provided me with shoes that helped support my feet and reduce the pain I had in the ball of my left foot and enabled me to walk without pain. Thank you for your assistance in doing that.

Stephen, Qld (posted on Word of Mouth, 2 December 2017)

I have been suffering from Achilles tendon insertion and heel pain for probably 1.5 years now - to the degree that I had to stop running and dreaded getting out of bed in the morning. I tried all sort of running shoes, night splints, podiatry treatments, and nothing really helped.
The various pairs of Z-Coil shoes that I bought so far did not miraculously completely cure my heel pain over night. But I can walk - and even run again - without serious pain. In the morning and after periods of inactivity there is still stiffness and pain, but it disappears quickly when wearing the Z-Coils. With the very effective shock-absorption that the Z-Coils offer, the continuous micro-traumatisation stops and the inflammation finally has a chance to heal.
So far, I have purchased 4 pairs: Freedom classic and enclosed, Outback open, and Sidewinder open, and I try to wear them as much as possible. Running in Z-Coils is a bit different; the shoes are heavier than normal running shoes, and the coils do seem to absorb some energy, so I can't run at my usual pace, but the important thing is that I can run again without having to fear that my heel pain will be worse over the next couple of days.
The shopping experience at Springy Feet itself is fantastic. Nikki is very passionate about Z-Coils, and she will not tire to work with you, tweak and adjust things, until you have achieved the best possible outcome.
If you suffer from any form of lower limb or even lower back pain, give Z-Coils a serious consideration.

I have ankle and heel fusions too both feet which restricts my movement considerably, springy feet have given back my mobility walking on uneven surfaces, steps and general walking has increased two fold thank you guys you have taken me back to 15 years ago​

Pearl Wootten, WA (posted on Word of Mouth, 2 November 2017)

I can’t believe how much ZCoil shoes have turned my life around. I struggled to walk 5 kms with normal sports shoes because I suffered with severe shin splints along with osteo arthritis in my back and hips. I would moan and complain the whole time. I can now walk/jog 6km in 45mins (I’m 51 and not fit) and I have no pain. My walking partner can’t believe I don’t complain at all now! I do have good pain afterwards from working my muscles but that’s all. I bought the sandle style first and after realising how amazing they were after about 2 months I was back for the Freedom trainers. I cannot recommend Springy Feet shoes more highly. They’ve given me back my Freedom literally, when it comes to exercise.​

I love my boots I bought, they are fantastic, very comfortable, very grounding and can be worn casually or even with a dress.

The sandals I'll wear again in the warmer months but they are very comfortable & springy. They are the black velcro open spring type, very zany but groovy.

Happy with my purchases and happy to recommend

Katherine H, WA (posted on Word of Mouth, 21 September 2017)

Thanks to Springy Feet I'm still springing around Venice after 2 weeks, walking between 7 and 10 kms, sometimes more, each day!​​

Michael Brown, VIC (posted on Word of Mouth, 21 September 2017)

After limping for 6 months I learnt I had bone fragments in my ankle joint, and my cartilage had completely worn away. My ankle was very swollen and I was in a significant amount of pain. The diagnosis is severe osteoarthritis in my ankle, and I now wear an Ankle Foot Orthotic which stops all movement of my ankle. I work on a farm with uneven ground, steep inclines, and I hop in and out of machines all day. I was finding that a rocker shoe was not giving me the movement that I needed, and work was becoming increasingly difficult, some jobs I was unable to do. I have started wearing the Prime Work Boot with composite toe. It reduced knee and hip pain by absorbing shock. I can now walk on slippery grass, mud and steep batters and the shoe moulds to most angles. The shoe allows me to have a normal gait, rather than limping, which is important to me. I have Dubbin Waxed them and they are now completely waterproof. I have also glued on toe protectors to protect the leather on the steel caps. They are very comfortable and I highly recommend them for anyone with similar ailments.​​​

I have had these shoes for nearly a week. Yes they are expensive, not a fashion statement and a bit ungainly.. but my feet don't hurt anymore.. for me, at least..its worth it..​

Claire J, WA (posted on Word of Mouth, 21 September 2017)

Loving the shoes. Receiving lots of positive feedback on the appearance but of course, the most important thing is how they reduce the pain I feel in my feet. They never come off my feet. No more barefoot in the house... And they are left outside the shower..... maybe I should just shower in them!​

Helen Hewitt, Fremantle WA (posted on Word of Mouth, 21 September 2017)

I love these shoes! Walking had become painful due to heel pain and general feet ache. Wearing these shoes has resolved all those problems and I feel like I've got an important part of my life back again.​​

Mark Kimberley, WA (posted on Facebook, 6 September 2017)

We were doing the Security work at the field day and the G and I bought a pair each. I have notorious flat feet and busted legs from motorbike smash's and the GF has a bad back. What a difference! within ours I was refreshed and walking comfortably and I couldn't believe the difference they have made to our lives. Thanks guys! It was well worth shelling out the bucks for the ability to be on my feet again!​

Jacqueline Elizabeth, WA (email 5 July 2017)

I want to buy another pair Tofflers with the enclosed heel but will have to wait a bit longer for finances to manifest - shortly I am sure. the shoes are wonderful and have generated several conversations and comments. I have been called 'devil woman with those shoes', as Astro girl, Zebedi (from the magical roundabout) and the shoes have been called moon boots. Nonetheless they are wonderful for my feet.

Robert Ambrose, WA (email 26 May 2017)

I was suffering from severe pain in the arch area of my right foot and after seeing a physiotherapist and podiatrist was diagnosed with Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction (PTTD).

I spent a lot of money on orthotics, which helped, but my job involves continuous standing and walking all day. In conventional work boots I was always coming home limping and in pain. Gradually, the pain was getting worse and I was getting desperate for a solution as none of the conventionally prescribed solutions worked.

I heard of Z-CoiLs by chance and thought I’d better check them out. I hummed and hahhed at first because I had already spent a lot of money and the boots are not cheap but eventually I thought I’d give it a go. And from the first day I wore them – a complete revelation – a complete reduction in pain and difficulty. Within days I no longer limped and was pain and symptom free and that’s just from wearing them during the working week! The benefit even continued over the weekend when I was not wearing them.

Thanks to Springy Feet and Z-CoiLs I have been able to go back about my life as I did before.

Here is a picture of my boots – they are standing up very well to a tough work environment.

I am happy to talk to any of your potential customers about my experience and tell them about this amazing product.

T. McNeven, QLD (email 25 November 2016)

The boots turned up yesterday thanks. The fastest parcel to ever turn up at your expense thank you. The boots are exactly what I wanted and are a perfect fit with my orthotics, inserted and with my stockings and sleeve on. Perfect.
