Promising review: "This little gadget is heavenly! I've been suffering from chronic pain on my right foot, and I couldn't figure out what was happening. I'm a server and I tend to work five to ten hour shifts, but my foot pain has been steadily decreasing since I started using this. It's super easy-to-use and, by using it maybe once or twice a day for a few minutes, I can guarantee that I have no plantar fasciitis pain." —Mia

Get it from Amazon for $7.95.

3. Super fuzzy socks because "cold feet" should only be an expression used before major life events, am I right? Your feet should never actually be cold.

Promising review: "DEAR GOD, THESE HEELS ARE THE MOST COMFORTABLE HEELS EVER! I'm very picky with heels, but these are soooo cushion-y on the inside. The heel itself is the perfect height and you just can't go wrong with them. I need to get them in every color now!" —Amanda R.

These shoe stretchers don't work for boots, but they work for pretty much any other shoe you have in your closet. Heels, sneakers, wedges, etc. Promising review: "This shoe stretcher works like magic! I inserted the stretcher into my leather flats and followed the simple instructions on how to use it. On the second day, It made such a huge difference! The leather stretched out nicely and I was able to wear my flats with no more pain because of the narrow width." —LindaGet a set of two from Amazon for $20.55.

Get it from Amazon for $13.16.

7. An electronic foot file to give your heel the kind of smoothness that even a baby's butt would get jealous of.

Psst, this foot file comes with batteries included. Promising review: "OH MY GOODNESS!! AMAZING! I had back surgery, so for about five months, I couldn't bend down to scrub my feet like I normally do every day in the shower. I eventually got very dry feet that were calloused. I have tried different scrubs, soaks, and creams, but nothing has worked as well as this machine! Within five minutes, it scrubbed off so much dead skin that my feet felt better than they had in a long time. This machine is very affordable and worth every penny." —Angel M.
