Today I treated my feet to what I hope to be pain free days ahead. I invested in a pair of Z-Coil shoes for work. I’ve worked with two people in the past year who SWEAR by them and my feet have really been bothering me over the last week so I figured no time like the present to give them a try.
A few years ago I developed plantar fasciitis in both feet as a result of wearing shoes for way longer than I should have. Once I recovered I vowed to myself to replace my work shoes every 4-5 months. My ASICS were due to expire so I went in search of the Reebok toner shoes but couldn’t find them. I opted for the New Balance tone shoes which looked and felt great. After the first day in those new shoes I felt exhausted and my feet were killing me. By the end of the week I was starting to have some foot pain. On Sunday morning I woke up and couldn’t stand it anymore. I looked up the nearest Z-Coil store, but sadly they were closed. I then planned to go right after work on Monday.
When I woke up this morning my feet felt as though I’d run a marathon and I had only walked from my bed to the bathroom. I knew it wasn’t going to be a good day. By 9:00 am I had decided that I wouldn’t make it to the end of the day. I had to do something NOW. I waited for the store to open at 10, I called to make sure someone was there and off I went!
I know that sounds crazy, but the fear of the plantar fasciitis returning was enough to make me not want to wait one more minute. So I am now the proud owner of 2 pairs of Z-Coils. One for work and one for play. I’ll post again in a week or so and let you know how they are working and how my feet feel.
Here’s a picture of the work shoe…..sexy! LOL
and from a different angle –
The best part – they were on sale. So if you’ve been considering buying a pair, now would be a great time! Tell them Jenn Smart sent you!
