    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

    Capre Antiperspirant Foot Lotion

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

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

    Get it from Amazon for $14.45.

Long story short, I had to hike about 30 miles in wet boots in hot, humid weather. Among a host of other issues, I got athlete's foot. Fast-forward like a feet are still itchy and it's bad. Like, skin cracking and falling off bad. Eventually I tried this and a month later, I'm cured. 10/10 would recommend unless you hate your toes." —Sam

    7. An eight pack of moisture-wicking socks, because wearing fresh, dry socks is the golden rule to preventing skin irritation on your feet. If you've suffered from foot fungus because your socks haven't let your tootsies breathe, these just might help prevent you from ever getting it again!

    Promising review: "These are top-notch quality. This is not a 'thin' sock. It effectively rocks moisture from the foot (and I’m not sure if that’s its claim to fame)! By far, this is my favorite athletic sock!" —EMillerofKC

    Promising review: "The picture without the shoe was taken before I started using the product. The picture with the shoe on is two weeks later (pictured above). The product definitely works. I've tried many products for years dealing with toenail fungus and this definitely works. I wash my feet two times a day and apply the product after both cleanings — when I wake up in the mornings after my shower and then after my shower before I go to bed. Apply this to clean, dry nails and it definitely works." —Pepa

    Promising review: "I wear boat shoes for most of the summer. Without this powder, my boat shoes are so SMELLY and funky I am NOT allowed to bring them in the house; so I leave my boat shoes outside to deter the raccoons from hanging out near our house at night. Since I've used this powder, my boat shoes smell as good as new for most of the season, and oddly enough, the raccoon population has increased in my neighborhood and my garbage is regularly destroyed by these critters at night. If only I saved an old pair of boat shoes to leave outside!" —iamnoman

    Promising review: "I don't have the nicest feet. Ever sense I was little I have had toenail fungus. I read online that tea tree oil is good for nail and fungus so I have been giving it a try. It's been a little bit over a month and I have noticed a little bit of a change — the yellowing of the nails has gone away a little bit, but there's still some fungus. The size of the bottle is nice and the sent smells good. I like that it came with the eye drop sucker, it's great because you don't waste the oil when applying it to the nails." —Ramiro Florez
