A pair of
insoles so you can treat your heart and your ~sole~ to a surprisingly comfortable hike whenever you need a break from the chaos.
Promising review: "I'm a bartender at a high volume waterfront restaurant. I'm on my feet for eight to 10 hours a day on average. I previously used different gel work insoles until I bought these. There is no comparison. For someone with high arches the support level of these is unmatched, even after hours of standing. I highly recommend these to all my fellow service industry workers." — Fabio
Price: $39.95+ (available in sizes 4.5–17)
A natural, antibacterial, and anti-fungal
foot odor spray for anyone with sweaty, stinky feet who knows the sweet smell of success is the smell of nothing at all.
Promising review: "Even with the great reviews, I was convinced there was no way this would touch the stank in my son's shoes. While headed to town as a family we were struck with the stench of his shoes. It was so bad we turned the car around, drove 10 minutes back to the house, chucked them into the yard, and went to buy him new shoes (which also stunk after he wore them once). He lost the new shoes in three days, which was just enough time for this spray to arrive. 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
A pair of
compression socks to help improve blood circulation, support your Achilles heel, and help your feet finally feel as rested as your body does after a full night's sleep.
Promising review: "I was about to go on a 28-mile hike on the Appalachian Trail with my 15-year old son when my left foot started killing me (planter fasciitis). My doctor said the best thing to do was get some compression socks. I thought that sounded like a silly idea but I was desperate, so went online and found these socks. Holy cow, what a HUGE relief. I literally got the socks the day before my hike and spent 8–10 hours/a day stepping across rocks and over boulders with no foot pain. I can honestly say that without these socks I wouldn't have been able to do the hike." — C. Sisler
foot file that'll give your scratchy feet some silky smooth results worth drinking to!
Promising review: "Don't even hesitate!! If you're in search for a foot file, get this one! It is amazing. It only takes a couple of minutes to work off the dead skin and you will be shocked after the first swipe on your foot. I feel like I just got a pedicure done — a REALLY good one!" — RaSDow
Price: $8.35+ (available in two styles)
A pair of moisture-wicking,
blister-proof socks with year-round temperature control and a friction-preventative seamless toe to make your next big run, well, seamless.
Promising review: "I'm a long distance runner. Last year I experienced a very painful bout of blisters while on an 18-mile run. Since then, I have tried all kinds of socks, mole skin, sports lubrication, foot sleeves etc. to avoid getting blisters, to no avail. I skeptically ordered a pair of these to try them out. They are AMAZING! They are the most comfortable pair of socks I have ever worn and I have not had any new blisters since I started wearing them. I would highly recommend them!" — Gloria Ochoa-Bruck
Price: $12.95+ (available in 17 colors and sizes S–XL)
Gel toe dividers for anyone who knows it can be a real ~stretch~ to find something that relieves toe pain after wearing pointed heels all day.
Beautiful shoes are worth it IDC.
Promising review: "This is something that everyone should have. Great for arthritis, lower back pain, vein problems, bunions, hammer toes, and the list goes on. I use this between one to two hours a day. It has improved my posture, my protruding veins, and my all around health. That's how effective they are. I use them everyday, no matter what." — Nurit L.
brace band — prepare to ~brace~ yourself for how amazing your feet are gonna feel once you finally have some proper arch support.
Promising review: "Wow! I rarely write a review for anything but I must say, I am extremely satisfied with this purchase. Being in the service industry and being on my feet 6-10 hours a shift, my feet are often aching and just killing me. But as soon I put these on I could really feel the difference. I don't wear them all the time, but mostly when I get home or when I wake up in the morning as a recovery and relief. I'm definitely going to be sharing this tip with my co-workers." — J
anti-fungal wash that helps with athlete's foot, ringworm, toenail fungus, and foot odor so you can finally start keeping your feet free of funk.
And it's cruelty-free!
Promising review: "I have a smelly infection on the soles of my feet from excessively sweating. The forefoot or the heel of my foot becomes white with clusters of punched-out pits. This product is actually curing my feet. The first picture (above, left) is from the day I received the product and before starting to wash them. The next picture is from a week after using the product. I'm so amazed. After the first day my feet stopped smelling. It was really embarrassing having to hide my feet all the time, but I don't have to do that anymore thanks to this soap. I am forever grateful!" — Dave
pumice stone for softening your skin when your feet can't handle a file, but still need something to stop feeling hard as a rock.
Promising review: "I just got these today and I'm already in love with them. I have horrible deep cracks all around my heels, the balls of my feet, and the bottoms of my big toes. I have tried every other product with minimal to no results. So I wasn't expecting to find something that actually works. I soaked my feet for about five minutes, then went to town scrubbing. I expected that I'd probably see no results (since this is the first use). Holy moly was I wrong. I got immediate results. After this one use my feet are already smoother. The cracks are still there but they are significantly less. This is just after ONE use. I'm buying more. I'm really really impressed!!" — Heather Bopp
deep-kneading foot massager that'll be the simplest and most luxurious way to give yourself some genuine self care at the end of the day.
This beauty has deep kneading, vibrating, rolling, and heat functions, and is set with five different pressure settings that'll perfectly hit your pressure points.
Promising review: "This is truly the most amazing and wonderful foot massager I have ever had the extreme pleasure of using. This thing gives an awesome massage with very good pressure. My feet feel better than they ever have. I highly recommend this!" — KatK
wooden foot massager to ease your foot pain (without putting a strain on your wallet) so you can let the good times ~roll~.
This simple device has over
2,500 five-star reviews! Promising review: "This is amazing!! I've developed very bad foot pain and after researching and reading reviews I decided to give this a try! It feels so great and it targeted all the pressure points that were killing me. After a few days of using it I am literally pain-free!! No gimmick here. It really works. I highly recommend this and I hope many people find the relief that I now feel. I just ordered another for my dad." — Missy Phillips
A cold press
foot therapy wrap for letting your aching feet chill out at the end of a long shift.
Promising review: "I love this product!! I have plantar fasciitis in both feet and when I come home from work my feet feel like they are on fire!! I can sit on the couch with this wrapped around my foot instead of having to lay in bed holding a big ice bag on my feet!! I think I am going to order another one so that I can do both my feet at the same time!! — Darlene
A pair of pain-relieving
cushions so your feet can have instant relief even while walking. With these, you won't have to lift a finger (or your feet) to stop the pain of overworked pressure points.
Promising review: "I had my doubts about this product but with my metatarsal problems, I was willing to try just about anything short of surgery. I wore these with Teva sandals and enjoyed walking 15 miles over two days, pain free." — AMR
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
heel sleeve version for anyone whose toes can't stand the feeling of glove-like socks.
Promising review: "I just put these on my feet and I am in love. Now I'm giving these as Christmas presents! When I put them on and could feel the gel on my heel, I swear my eyes rolled back into the back of my head in bliss. They are super lightweight, so your feet don't get hot. And I have very hot feet, so I don't like to wear socks around the house or anything like that. I might as well be wearing comforting air when in these. If you have dry heels, or if you just like to feel pampered, do yourself a favor and get a pair of these!!" — Amazon Customer
A pair of heavy duty
toenail clippers that'll take care of thick, ingrown nails and quickly prove that they're a ~cut~ above the rest.
Promising review: "Used this clipper set for my recurring ingrown big toenail (pictured above). My toe was hurting really bad and swelling, and these were able to go right in and cut out the bad nail without pain. Highly, highly recommend." — A
A pair of cozy
Ugg insoles you can throw in an old pair to restore 'em without buying new ones (or to put into a similarly shaped shoe so you can secretly wear slippers wherever you go).
Promising review: "These insoles were somewhat of a 'Hail Mary' for me, after I bought a pair of non-refundable winter boots that were not well insulated and were slightly too loose. So I got these. They are one of the best purchases I've ever made in my life. The boots not only fit perfectly now, they are SO COMFORTABLE and warm. I can walk around in them all day and they keep my feet warm and dry. My feet are in between sizes, and based on the reviews I went with the smaller size, which was perfect. I'm contemplating buying another pair to have on hand in case I want to add them to another set of boots. :)" — janesays13
Price: $17.95+ (available in sizes 5–12)
foot hammock that'll let you literally put your feet up and relax, even at the office.
Promising review: "I am 37 weeks pregnant, just started a new position in a cubicle, and this is by far the best investment I have ever made. It was easy install (less than two minutes), and it doesn't ruin furniture." — Maria
callus remover for when you're ready to take ~charge~ and heal your dry, cracked feet once and for all.
This product requires two
AA batteries. Promising review: "My husband and I both use this (we have our own individual rollers that we switch out). The best part about this tool is the fact that you keep it charged by plugging it in the wall. There are no batteries to replace! I had a problem with some very bad calluses that prevented me from wearing any shoes other than sandals. My podiatrist had to shave one of them and told me I needed to get regular pedicures to get rid of the other calluses before they got too bad again. That's when I bought this miracle tool! I use it several times a week. My feet look like the feet I have always envied! My husband's feet were so bad that he had shredded a new fitted bed sheet one night. That was it, he had to do something. Now his feet are almost as soft as a baby's butt! — Cathy
anti-blister balm for anyone who finds that new shoes *always* rub them the wrong way.
Promising review: "I thought this stuff was a bunch of BS, I was like 'pssh what a waste of $8 ON AMAZON FOR THIS LITTLE THING.' Well, I put it on today on spots where my flats rub on my skin. My feet survived an entire day, INTACT! Highly recommend. This product made wearing shoes that rub on your ankles/backs of your feet doable!" — Jamie
A massively moisturizing
foot cream so your feet no longer have to be as dry as your humor.
Promising review: "This is amazing cream! I had just about given up on finding anything to help my poor feet, but this stuff did the trick. I was floored at the difference and it’s only been four days! I did exfoliate my feet with a pumice sponge during these four days but only once. The rest is all the cream’s doing." — C.L.M.
A teeny tiny
massage ball that'll fit in your bag in case you need a stress relieving mid-day foot massage.
Promising review: "One of the great benefits — this is portableI I use this at my desk at work for my plantar fasciitis and then I slip it in my purse and use it at my computer desk at home or while sitting and watching television. I find these much better than using golf balls, which are about the same size, because this doesn't slip, doesn't roll away, and it doesn't feel quite as hard against my heel bone." — katjane
A pair of natural
air-purifying bags sure to deodorize your shoes so your toes can stop holding their breath every time you shove on a sneaker.
My BuzzFeed coworker wrote all about how
these are the solution to your smelly-shoe woes. Promising review: "I get told by my boyfriend quite often that my leather work boots could wilt flowers. Even after one night, there was a noticeable difference. After a weekend, they were almost brand-new-smelling with no artificial scents. Every night after work I come home, take off my boots, and throw these in overnight." — Dude495
anti-fungal polish for anyone who can no longer stand the site of their fungus-filled nail art.
Promising review: "This is a wonderful product. I was doubtful that a non-prescription would work, but this has. In about two months, the infected nails have peeled off and new nails have grown. All I did was put a layer over the toenail every night before going to bed. Highly recommended!" — Amazon Customer
A bottle of
Carpe antiperspirant foot lotion that just might finally get your perpetually sweaty feet dry...aside from the tears of joy they'll be crying when you put this on.
Promising review: "Bought this for my boyfriend who is on his feet all day and was always complaining about how sweaty his feet got. He usually had to bring at least one extra pair of socks to change into during the day. He also had to buy shoes more often because of how they smell. It would be impossible for us to get out the smell. Since he began using this product, he can't believe how dry his feet stay ALL day. His socks don't even smell after a full day of work. He's now obsessed and it's become a part of his daily routine." — Amazon Customer
tea tree oil foot soak made with some deliciously nourishing essential oils. This is worth getting if a future with foot fungus would be the final ~nail~ in your coffin.
Promising review: "These Epsom salts have literally changed my life! I love a good foot bath and I love essential oils, so naturally I was intrigued. My toes tend to be on the sweaty side and because of that they can smell sometimes. I try to use this stuff once or twice a week and it helps SO much. Very relaxing too. I will absolutely be buying this product again and again." — Amazon Customer
peppermint cooling spray to revive your feet after your boo asks you to dance and your heart says yes but your feet say "time to break up."
Promising review: "This is great stuff; I have become obsessed with it because it's so nice and cooling in summer. I use it on my feet and as a body spray. It's nice to spray on if you need an afternoon clean up ( armpits included), especially in summer ( alcohol kills smelly bacteria). I also spray this on when getting into bed each night. It is calming and soothing and is a natural bug repellent in case any spiders come along in the night. A fantastic spray for body and feet." — A. Scott
And a pack of six
ankle socks so you can wear a ~sneaky~ design under your work-appropriate loafers.
Promising review: "The best 'shoes' anywhere! I am a 30 year wheelchair user and cannot wear regular shoes. Now I have shoes – these are just perfect and I no longer get asked, 'Where are your shoes?" because, with these on, nobody notices that I'm not wearing shoes. LOVE THEM!!! They are perfect!!!" –
Price: $5 (also available in 22 other styles)
