Every single component in a pair of Z-CoiLs has been carefully engineered to relieve pain and make walking more comfortable. An extra thick forefoot dramatically relieves the pressure on your metatarsal joints in your forefoot when walking and standing. Nearly an inch of soft cushioning protects the metatarsal heads every time you take a step.
The forefoot is home to sensitive structures, including the metatarsal bones and nerves, and is a high-impact area that absorbs a significant amount of force during activities like walking, running, or jumping. Z-CoiL's thick cushioning in the forefoot helps to absorb and distribute the impact, reducing the stress and pressure on the bones, joints, and soft tissues of the foot, allowing for a more enjoyable and pain-free walking experience.
The quality cushioning materials in the forefoot of every pair of Z-CoiLs offer energy return properties, meaning they compress upon impact and then release stored energy to help propel you forward. The cushioned forefoot improves the efficiency of your stride, making walking or running feel easier and more efficient.
The cushioning in the forefoot also plays a role in preventing injuries, such as stress fractures, metatarsalgia, and plantar fasciitis.
The thick forefoot cushioning helps to absorb shock, reduce the repetitive impact on the foot, and minimize the risk of overuse injuries. The thick cushioning in the forefoot of our footwear provides an additional layer of stability and balance, helping to create a more even distribution of weight across the foot, which allows for a more stable and secure footing. This can be particularly beneficial when walking on uneven or challenging surfaces.
