San Marcos Daily Record: Z-Coil footwear good for walkers, but how about runners?

San Marcos Daily Record: "The San Marcos Runners Club will meet this Tuesday, May 3rd at the San Marcos Activity Center at 7 p.m.

Even if you are not a club member the meeting is open to the public and there is no fee to attend.

This meeting will be of interest to any individual that walks, jogs or runs and knows how important getting the right pair of shoes is. Two representatives from Z-Coil Pain Relief Footwear as scheduled to be the guest speakers.

As David Alexander, the club president, mentioned in his notice to club members if you are not familiar with these shoes it will be worth the time to find out about them. You can look up information about them on the web at:

The representatives will have shoes at the presentation and even let you try them on to see how they feel and if it is a shoe you might want to consider buying.

If you have not seen these shoes you will recognize them immediately if you see someone wearing them. Instead of the normal heel cushion that you see on running or walking shoes these shoes have a metal coil leading from the shoe itself down to the sole of the shoe. It looks like you are walking with a bedspring attached to your shoe." (more)
