I wore them all night at work, and every time I had to walk somewhere, it felt really exciting and fun. I can’t wait to run in them!" —Ahna Kolts

    Reviewer's socked feed on the textured wood roller

    Promising review: "Seemed kind of counterintuitive to put my poor tender feet on hard wood with ridges and knobs on it, but by starting gently and working up to more pressure, this gives marvelous relief to sore, tired feet. Usually, those first few steps in the morning are the most painful. This morning, I did the TheraFlow Roller for just a minute or so (gently) and those first steps were much less painful. I like the idea that it is treating my entire body at the same time through the reflexology points." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.95+ (also available in an XL size).

    3. A foot file so good at gently removing dead skin, you'll gasp at your newly-soft heels that were once callused and cracked.

    Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "I would highly recommend this foot file for anyone looking to safely get rid of foot calluses. I've tried several pumice stones and foot files and none were worth the money, until I found this one. It is professional quality like the ones used in the salons and really gets rid of the dead skin, gradually but noticeably. I use it daily in the shower and my feet are so much softer." —Daisy Lukow

    Get it from Amazon for $8.95.

    4. A rose foot soak that'll get you excited for your next foot bath and soften your tootsies. Packed with essential oils and rose buds, this treatment will leave you feeling relaxed after a long day.

    Amazon / Via, Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "After a week of using this product I was shocked! I was walking my dog through wet grass since it’s rained all month and I didn’t realize I caused a toe fungus. What a shock when it was almost clear after seven days, looks every bit better after 14 days!!! Buy this product, you need this if you need help with toe fungus. It’s affordable and works fast but 100% real." —Mia R.

    These compression sleeves have copper-infused nylon and are designed to give your feet optimal support *and* comfort.

    Promising review: "I love these. Out of the blue I developed some pain that I assumed was plantar fasciitis. I was dreading wearing clunky shoes and insoles around the house. Enter these bizarre little bands. Whatever hocus pocus is going on here, I'm a believer. I wore them faithfully for a week or so and my pain is gone. Maybe they aren't for everyone, but they sure worked for me." —frankenmuth

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $18.95.

    7. An anti-fungal foot odor spray that'll help your stinky feet after long workouts. Thanks to a blend of eucalyptus and lemon essential oils, your heels and toes will be odor-free and smell so fresh.


    Promising review: "Even with the great reviews, I was convinced there was no way this would touch the stank in my son's shoes. I was forced to try this with the nasty yard shoes. OMG: After one soak in this stuff the smell was gone! I sniffed hard to find that underlying stank that I was sure would be there. Gone. He's been wearing the newly revived demon shoes for a week at summer camp, spraying every day before he puts them on, and the smell is still gone. Completely!" —Broncodriver

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    8. Supportive insoles to place in trail sneakers and hiking boots. With shock-absorbing tech and good cushioning, your heels and toes will feel so good when you're walking outdoors.

    Amazon / Via, Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "I received the insoles before my new work boots came in, so I took them out for a test ride. Usually half way through the day my feet will being to ache, but that was not the case. When my work boots came in, I put in the insoles and had the same result. I work 12-hour shifts in a production environment. That means standing on concrete long hours. These insoles cost a fraction of the price and so far been superior in comfort and support." —Jamin M.

    Promising review: "I stand on my feet all day long and have been suffering from foot pain since I started my career. My toes were curled toward the big toe and my heels hurt so bad. At the end of each day, the cramping was so horrible that I couldn't walk. I tried this toe separator and I'll probably use it for the rest of my days. After one week, my toes are straight and the pain is gone. I will forever swear by YogaToes!" —Amazon Customer

    Get a pair from Amazon for $29.95.

    10. Suede leather heel grips because wearing cute leopard flats or leather pumps sometimes hurts your feet. These little helpers provide cushioning and prevent chafing at the same time. A pillow for my blistered heels?

    Amazon / Via, Amazon

    Promising review: "These are really a lifesaver. I bought the most adorable pumps that became incredibly painful and cut into my heels after about an hour. I thought I couldn't wear them again, and these were my last hope. I put them in and what a difference! They have some padding — which I definitely needed — but not so much that they make the shoes too small. They are nice and large so they wrap all the way around the heel. They can also be trimmed as needed. The adhesive is really strong, so it is a good idea to expose just a little bit to get them into place. The leather is very soft and doesn't snag anything. I love these things!" —G.G.

    Get three pairs from Amazon for $7+ (also available in pairs of 5 and 10).

    Promising review: "I purchased this to do basic leg stretches per the recommendation of my physical therapist. However, since then, my wife and I have used it for shoulder stretches, groin stretches, feet stretches, and on and on. While it is 'just a strap' it is a still an incredibly useful tool to stretch out your body in a ton of different ways." —J.W. Snyder

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95.

    12. A pair of cozy round-toe loafers that'll feel like you're walking on clouds, thanks to memory foam insoles. Can we also take a second to appreciate how many colors they come in?!,,

    Promising review: "Very cute and comfy. I stand all day in a pharmacy so comfort and support is super important. A little wider but that's OK because my feet swell sometimes anyway." —MrsPharmD

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes 4.5–11 and in 30 colors).

    13. A heated foot massager because you'll love taking a break after standing all day long. With six massage heads, 18 massage nodes, and a heating function, this little gadget is all you'll ~knead~ for a little pain relief.

    Promising review: "This massager is a gift from God. Not too long ago I started a job that's a 12-hour shift standing on my feet. I'm flat-footed and on top of that walk heavy on the ball of my foot. This hits all the necessary spots from your toes to the ball of your foot. It gets in deep. It is able to bring my feet back to life. After 30 to 45 minutes of using this, I'm able to walk around with no issues." —Elizabeth

    Get it from Amazon for $55.99.

    Promising review: "I love this product! Typically when I run more than two to three miles I get some hot spots, irritation, or a blister and this made my whole run enjoyable! I got one of my best times during a 5K while using this product. I could focus on doing a great job rather than worrying about my feet." —A. Adams

    Get it from Amazon for $8.

    15. A shoe stretcher that'll break in new shoes or your old ones that are a tad too tight. They'll work great for heels, flats, sneakers, sandals and more footwear you'll wear again and again.

    Amazon / Via, Amazon / Via

    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." —Linda

    Promising review: "I have been having trouble with badly cracked heels and I have tried vaseline in my socks overnight, but I would get hot and end up taking them off. These provided great breathability all night and in the morning, my cracked heels already looked a million times better. If you are looking for a product that softens your heels and starts working away at those dry, cracked areas immediately, I would recommend these." —Victor Farrell

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in three sizes).

    17. A foot bath because your heels and toes could seriously use some pampering while you're OOO. With a temperature setting and four massage rollers, your feet will be in heaven and not ache anymore.

    Promising review: "I am super rough on my feet, so I needed something that would relax and pamper them. This foot machine is amazing! It bubbles, and heats the water. Has foot-shaped scrubbies in the bottom, and comes with a dual pumice/scrub brush for taking care of all the rough skin on my heels." —Cathy Fu

    Get it from Amazon for $56.99.

    Promising review: "After knee surgery, I’d been trying to elevate by using weird makeshift inventions from stuff around the house (obviously a flawed plan). I finally caved and bought this pillow specifically to properly elevate my knee and reduce swelling. It was all I wanted and more. Proper angle for elevation for circulation and it’s still comfortable while providing firm support. I highly recommend this product." —Sam

    Get it from Amazon for $33.90.

    19. A foot peel mask for your cracked and callused feet that have seen better days. Coconut and papaya extracts help relieve dryness and roughness, especially around heels, toes, and arches. You'll be shedding quite a bit of dead skin, but it'll be worth it when you have smooth, velvet-like digits a few days later.

    Amazon / Via, Amazon

    Reviewers said it typically takes four to five days for the peel to activate!

    Promising review: "I had terrible calluses because of long shifts working on my feet and being super ticklish, causing me to avoid pedicures. I soaked my feet for about five minutes for two nights before I got some major peeling, after about a weekend of shedding like a snake, I have very little calluses on my heels but the all in all my feet look 100x better. 10/10 product!" —Ashley MacHugh

    Two sets of feet with various toe protectors on different toes

    Promising review: "I had originally purchased some that went over your whole toe area or the whole ball of your foot but they were so big and bulky I couldn't get my shoe on. These work so much better. They get right to the spot and don't take up much room. I hardly even know they are there. Wore them all day and they didn't slide off or move around. I cut a few of them across so I can wear them with my sandals." —Amazon Customer

    Get a variety pack of 12 from Amazon for $12.99.

    21. A foot buffer that'll make you feel like you're getting a pedi and take care of rough feet. It's infused with olive oil and shea butter to help soften up cracked skin and get rid of dirt.


    Promising review: "Love this product! It's pre-filled with a softening foot soap and extra scrubber for rough soles/driest of feet. I'm a huge flip flop wearer year-round, and these are a godsend, especially between pedicures. Smells delicious and my feet always feel so luxuriously soft after using, easily buffing away the dirt and grime, layers of dead skin." —Samantha Rose

    Get it from Amazon for $5.59+ (available in two colors).

    I've used Beurre's Raw Shea Butter on my legs and feet and it feels so good! I work out a lot and my heels are very rough and dry (raise your hand if you do cardio *a lot*). This shea butter cream is so moisturizing and makes my feet feel super soft after a long exercise session.

    Promising review: "I’ve always wanted the Arizona style Birkenstocks, but wanted a fun color other than the classic brown that everyone else has. They are of course so comfortable, true to size, and go with everything." —Free People Customer

    Get them from Free People for $125 (available in women's shoe sizes 5–10.5 and also in green).

    24. Corn-remover pads to cover and help treat painful corns that are an eyesore on your feet. These medicated pads cover affected areas and will stay on while you wear socks.

    Amazon, Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "Did a great job taking away my corn. The bandages are extremely flexible and made of strong fabric. My corn was in a tight area near my toe, on ball of foot. Even so, since the bandages are strong, I was able to keep these on the area for the time needed. I am also on my feet all day and it stayed in place, never had a problem with it." —Amazon Customer

    Get a 42-pack from Amazon for $19.99+ (also available in an 84-pack).

    25. And athletic socks because it's about time you gave your heels and toes better cushioning for running. They each have a heel tab design (buh-bye blisters) and are made with breathable material. You can ~go the distance~ and not deal with stinky, sweaty, and irritated feet.

    Black, blue, red, and white Saucony athletic socks with heel tabs

    Promising review: "So you know that problem when your running socks slouch below your shoe, and WHAM! Blister. This does not happen with these socks. That little tabby-thing in the back is amazing for preventing sock slippage, and these are awesome. They're not too heavy (which is great—dude, I hate bulky socks!), but they're hefty enough that you don't feel like you're going to put a hole in the sock after the first few runs. I'm crazy prone to blisters, and these are perfect." —Amy
