High Instep

Understanding the Instep and Foot Instep Height

The instep of your foot is the bony structure on top of the foot, running from the back of the toes to the front of the ankle. In contrast, the arch of your foot curves under the foot, between the heel and the forefoot. The arch runs from the back of the toes to the heel.

What is a High Instep?

A high instep refers to a foot structure where the top of the foot is elevated more than usual. This condition can make finding comfortable footwear challenging, as the standard shoes might not provide enough space or support.


High Instep Solutions with Z-CoiL

At Z-CoiL, we understand the unique needs of individuals with a high instep. Our shoes are designed with extra depth and width in the instep area to provide the necessary room and comfort. Our innovative pressure-free, flat lacing system helps minimize irritation and soreness caused by traditional laces crossing over the foot's top, which has little natural padding.

If you have a high instep, achieving the right fit is crucial. Generally, lace-up shoes are preferable for high insteps, as they allow you to adjust the lacing according to your specific instep needs.



  "In 2007, I was in an auto accident and sustained a spinal cord injury. I was paralyzed and bedridden until December 4, 2008. During that time, I developed a dropped foot. After my surgery, I began walking again, but due to my extremely high instep and very wide feet, I tore the ligaments in the bottom of both feet. No matter what I tried, they would not heal, so my podiatrist suggested I try Z-CoiL shoes. I was absolutely surprised and delighted with the very first step I took in them! I had retained some residual back and leg pain after my car accident surgery that would not go away until I wore Z-CoiL shoes; and now it is much better! I completely recommend these shoes to ANYONE with foot, leg, or back pain!!!! Thank you, Z-CoiL!" - Janice Maxwell
