Changing People's Lives with Pain Relief Footwear is the Z-CoiL motto, and our mission. Our ultimate goal is to bring relief to everyone, everywhere, who suffers from foot, leg, or back pain.
It all started when Alvaro Z. Gallegos, an avid runner, began to experience a great deal of knee and back pain. Al realized that he needed some sort of protection against this type of pain and injury, so he embarked on a journey to develop a shoe that would not only cushion the shock of impact to his body, but could also be adjusted to compensate for other foot, leg and back problems. After many years of research and experimentation, Al created Z-CoiL footwear-and found he had launched a whole new Pain Relief Footwear industry.
In no time, the Z-CoiL Footwear company Al founded began to expand rapidly. Independent Z-CoiL dealers were opening their own stores around the country, most of them devoted customers eager to bring to others the same amazing pain relief they had experienced themselves.
It was because of the special pain-relieving properties of Z-CoiL footwear, in fact, and the importance of achieving a personalized fit, that the company chose to sell its shoes only through dedicated retail stores by authorized Z-CoiL dealers who were trained in our custom-fitting process.
Ultimately, Z-CoiL Footwear made the decision to offer opportunities to develop retail
stores in order to increase awareness of the Z-CoiL brand, as well
as improve operational consistency throughout our distribution network. Many of
our existing dealers have since adopted our unique retail model, while
enthusiastic new retailers continue to open additional
Z-CoiL Pain Relief Footwear stores. We now have over 200
distributors nationwide and in
Al Gallegos' persistence and his determination to bring Pain Relief Footwear to the world has inspired many of our distributors to join the Z-CoiL family. We hope you will join us in our quest to build a business that changes people's lives.
