GARDENING is Good for You

A Salute to Nurses

National Nurses Week: May 6-12


National Nurses Week logoDid you know that more nurses wear Z-CoiL shoes than any other group of

professionals?  In recognition of their dedication to helping others, Z-CoiL is honoring these caregivers during National Nurses Week, which is celebrated annually from May 6 through May 12. (May 12 is the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing.)


Nurses love their Z-CoiL footwearFor many nurses, long shifts spent walking and standing on hard floors really takes a toll. Crippling foot and back pain may even force them to change careers. Happily, many have discovered that wearing Z-CoiL shoes can help them stay in the jobs they love.


Read their stories and see the best Z-CoiL styles for nurses here. 


Z-CoiL Pain Relief Footwear is also exhibiting at the NTI/AACN Critical Care Nursing Show in Chicago, May 3-5. Come see us!


The Cancer Prevention Rainbow

Many of the cancer-preventing "phytonutrients" in foods are what give vegetables and fruits their distinctive colors. Try eating a rainbow of fruits and veggies every day to stay healthier:

Customer Testimonial


As a nurse working 12-hour shifts, my knees and feet were the first to tell me the day was long and laborious. I saw several waitresses and nurses wearing Z-CoiL footwear, and they all had wonderful things to say about them, so I put them on my Christmas wish list a year ago. My wonderful husband bought me a gift certificate, and I was amazed at how great they felt. Since getting them, they have been on my feet constantly when I work, play, shop, or just hand around. Why wear anything else? My grandchildren call me Grandma Tigger. Although I cannot jump as high as Tigger can in the Winnie-the-Pooh books, I can smile and laugh like he does because I feel good.
