Copper Fit Zen Step REVIEWSThe actual Copper Fit Zen Step user reviews contradict the claims made by the Zen Step manufacturer.
Zen Step Insoles Do not Work as ClaimedMany buyers got sucked into buying the Copper Fit Zen Step assuming it relieves foot pain, but the majority of the buyers report that “Pain Relief” is a false claim. The Zen Step insoles hardly relieve any foot pain. They do not do what they claim to do. The insoles are overrated, providing no better support than the normal insoles. Cheap copied version of Dr. Scholls. Copper Fit Zen Step is a good insole if you use it for casual walking around the house and garden. don’t expect it to help you with pain relief if you are doing standing 8 hour job. Buyers suggest buying the “Memory Foam” insoles which offer the kind of support and pain relief, claimed by Copper Fit Zen Step.
Nodes are IrritatingCopper Fit Zen Step insole users mention in their reviews that the nodes do not provide any massage at all, in-fact many users find them irritating.
“Not Much Cushion”Reviews mention that the Copper Fit Zen Step advertising is misleading and the insole fails to provide the required cushion as they are very thin. The Zen Step has less padding than other similar insoles in the market. As per the reviews, Copper Fit Zen Step fails to provide any cushion under the ball of the foot. One review mentions that the Copper Fit Zen Step insoles are not very useful on flat shoes, they work better on shoes with heels.
Not Much Support EitherPeople report that pain is still there after putting the Copper Fit Zen Step insole in the shoes. Does nothing to reduce heel pain. User reviews say that you feel a need to insert one more insole below the Zen Step. No support to the heels either. Many users point out that there is not much gel in the Copper Fit Zen Step inserts.
Wears Out QuicklyThe small cushion bubbles last only for a few months [some reviews even mention 1 month] and then they almost flatten out. Of-course this is after heavy daily use, but that is what the Copper Fit Zen Step is meant to be used for. People have reported that the Zen Step insoles lose their “bounce” in about a few weeks. One the “dots” wear off the inserts are pretty much useless. “The more you walk, the sooner the dots disappear. No cushioning or massaging effect at all” – one Zen Step reviewer mentions.
Walking on the Marbles, Pebbles, Cobblestones, Gravels & FuzzballsMany Copper Fit Zen Step reviewers mention that it feels like walking on the marbles when the inserts are new. After a couple of months of daily use, the marbles flatten out. One user reports that the Copper Fit Zen Step inserts feel like wearing socks filled with fuzzballs. If you are a lightweight person you might enjoy the “bumps” you get from walking these inserts but not of much help for a “heavy” person. One user who has sensitive feet reports that it feels like walking on the gravel. Wearing thicker socks reduces the feeling of bumps, one reviewer says.
Misleading ClaimsUser reviews reveal that the Copper Fit Zen Step does not rejuvenate and energize your tired feet. The TV ad is misleading where it shows people engaged in various activities like sports, work etc. But based on the actual reviews the fact is clear that the Copper Fit Zen Step insert does not help for people doing activities that involve walking.
Not Suited for Heavy-Duty WorkOne user who works 8 hours on concrete and asphalt says that the Copper Fit Zen Step did nothing to relieve pain. “In about an hour the insert flattens out owing to the weight and the pressure from the below, no support of any kind”. “These Zen Step inserts are not suited for heavy-duty work, maybe they are OK for office work where the flooring is carpeted”, he says in the Copper Fit Zen Step review. Go for memory foam inserts he suggests. Another Copper Fit Zen Step user mentions in her review that she works in a warehouse and does a 10-day shift. “The Zen Step inserts offer some relief from the pain for a couple of hours early on, but that is it. The pain is back again again and lasts all day long. She recommends Sr. Scholls inserts in place of the Copper Fit Zen Step.
One Size Does NOT Fits AllThis is a major disadvantage of the Copper Fit Zen Step – “One Size Fits All”. While it does fit for most people, there are a sizable number of users who Zen Step users who complain that they had to cut the insole to make it fit in the shoes. Some people have reported that if your shoes fit you perfectly, then the Copper Fit Zen Step would make your feet feel cramped.
