MEDIA ALERT: Z-CoiL® Donates 800 Pairs of Shoes
The corporate Z-CoiL® footwear store in Albuquerque, NM is generously donating 800 pairs of gently used, pain relieving shoes to veterans. To honor deserving veterans, several corporate representatives will be on-hand to custom fit the veterans in Z-CoiL shoes.
There are many veterans who are already benefiting from wearing Z-CoiL footwear. Tom Lopeman of Walker, AZ, began wearing Z-CoiL shoes after a double leg amputation. Tom had laboratory gait testing done with the shoes, and the results revealed that Z-CoiL® footwear significantly reduce the shock of impact where the sockets of his new prosthetics attach to his own legs. “They provide cushioning and stability. I can stay on my legs for 20 hours at a time now as opposed to 8-10 hours pre-Z-CoiL® shoes,” says Lopeman.
Civilian Contractor Warren Hearn of Houston, TX, purchased his pair of Z-CoiL shoes just prior to leaving for Iraq. Hearn says of the shoes, “The shoes are the most talked about and most noticeable footwear on the base. I get at least eight to ten inquiries from clients, co-workers, and just about anyone that sees me wearing them.”
The custom fittings are on a first-come, first-served basis, so veterans should arrive early for their fittings.
