    1. A pair of copper-infused arch supports that'll support your feet without hindering your range of motion. Reviewers swear by them for combatting pain from fallen arches, flat feet, bunions, heel spurs, plantar fasciitis, and arthritis.


    Promising review: "I put these on after they came in the mail and wore them for about one hour. Then, as I was resting on the couch, I fell into the kind of deep sleep that one only dreams of. This was the most epic, most restorative nap I can remember. The kind of nap Joey Tribiani and Ross Geller had in Friends they tried so hard to recreate. I am kinda afraid to take them off now. I wear them with my flip-flops, under my socks in tennis shoes, and to bed. My feet feel great. As for whether or not they contributed to my most perfect nap, I don't know for sure, but I'm rolling with it." —Texas Sandra Dee

    2. A foot file to shave away dry skin so your heels are scrumdiddlyumptious and soft. This rasp is no joke, so be gentle or you may accidentally shave too far down.,

    Promising review: "AMAZING!!! I'm seriously beyond impressed with this product. I've never had dry or cracked heels until recently and I've tried everything I could find to get rid of them! This is all you need!!! I literally opened the box and did this in less than a minute! I'll never use anything else! Even better than professional pedicures!!!" —Kindle Customer

    3. A tea tree oil foot soak for beating foot funk. This one's made with epsom salt and essential oils, including tea tree oil, an anti-fungal and antibacterial agent that can help treat athlete's foot and other fungal conditions.

    Promising review: "I wear boots every day to work for a total of 16 hours a day. I used a pretty standard foot spray and changed out the insoles of my boots on a regular basis. However, after using this foot soak after just a few times, I've noticed a drastic change in my feet in a great way. The cracks are starting to heal. The funk is going away. My feet feel lighter and softer, and are beginning to be a pleasure to stand on again during those long hours at work. Now that I've gone there, I will never go back. For any hardworking man, I cannot recommend this foot soak enough at least twice a week. Trust me, your feet will never be the same again. There are multiple days during the week where I look forward to soaking my feet in this. I can't recommend it enough!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    4. A pack of gel heel protectors so you can say goodbye to plantar fasciitis pain. They're designed to absorb shocks so you can run and play all day. Plus, they're made of breathable silicone so you won't be slipping and sliding inside them.


    Promising review: "I recently had torn Achilles surgery. The surgeon had to completely re-attach the tendon to my heel leaving a noticeable ridge that in the early stages is quite tender and doesn't fill smoothly into shoes or in my case more importantly my hiking boots!!! I put these heel cushions on under my socks and they protect the tender and still heeling part of my heel. They are not bulky and fit so comfortably that I'm not even aware they are there other than I have no discomfort or pain with my heel. They are awesome!!" —celtic_hiker

    Get them from Amazon for $12.99.

    5. A pack of suede heel grips, because they'll basically solve all your shoe problems. Flats too big? These can help! Constantly sliding out of your shoes? Try these! Are the backs of your heels covered in blisters? Um, hi, hello, we're here for you!,

    Promising review: "I have very narrow heels so finding shoes that do not slip is incredibly difficult. However, since I have purchased the Pedag Stop Padded Leather Heel Grips, I have been able to wear all of my shoes. The heel grips are thick enough to keep my shoes from slipping in the back but not too thick to where it makes my shoes feel smaller. Also, the heel grips are made out of a super soft leather. Even through having sweaty shoes, the heel grips have stayed stuck to the back part of the shoe. Each set of heel grips is wrapped individually so it is easy to store the extras that I am saving for shoes in the future." —Derek

    6. A pack of metatarsal foot pads to cushion the balls of your feet. They stick right to your feet and won't slip and slide no matter how much you sweat.


    Promising review: "I suffer from chronic foot pain. Unbearable! My aunt is a big fan of these specific foot pads; she had tried a couple others she found on Amazon, but said the others don't stick too well when her feet get sweaty. She mentioned that these stick all day. I tried them myself and am a HUGE fan. Not only do they stick to my often moist feet without problems, they relieve so much pain! Will buy several more." —Roy Rosell

    Get it from Amazon for $14.58.

    7. A bottle of professional grade callus-removing gel for dissolving hard dead skin in literal minutes. (Seriously, reviewers say you should only let it sit for two to three minutes!) Then, give it a good scrub with a foot file and your heels will be baby bottom smooth.,

    Promising review: "I have the driest heels and this is the ONLY product that has ever worked. Before I used this my heels had some pretty deep cracks and now they're almost baby soft again. BUT please follow the directions...left it on my super dry thick calloused heels for only three minutes and the callouses were literally melting off! Wonderful product! So glad I don't have to go soak my feet in those tubs at the nail salon anymore." —Key2Del

    Get it from Amazon for $9.85.

    8. A foot peel mask with before and after photos that'll make you feel a bit queasy — but ultimately convinced that you *need* to add this to your cart ASAP.

    Promising review: "My poor feet have been extremely neglected ever since I was pregnant two years ago. This was the first time I really ever had very rough, hard heels and 'old' looking feet; they were so bad that I didn't even want to have a pedicure or wear sandals. Anyway, these foot peels were super easy to use and boy are they effective. It was the fourth day that my feet began to peel — very strange! Totally painless. The new skin coming through was very soft, like new. I would totally recommend. My sister and mother have requested their boxes." —Ally CHR

    Get it from Amazon for $16.95.

    9. A waterproof, sweat-proof anti-chafe roll-on cream to smooth the backs of your heels and reduce friction, thereby lessening your chances of getting blisters.


    Promising review: " This product is a miracle. I have VERY blister-prone feet, and it is so difficult for me to find shoes that don't rub me raw (I'm talking every kind of shoe — flats, sandals, heels, tennis shoes, etc.). I bought new water shoes that were supposed to be amazing for your feet, and they felt great when I tried them on, but the first time I wore them I had a blister on my heel within 30 minutes. (And I wasn't even in the water! Just walking around the house.) I went online and bought this product that night. Let me tell you, the next time I wore those water shoes with this product...NO blisters, AT ALL. Not even a sore spot!! I am in awe. I've now tried this product with several other shoes that used to rub me as well, and same thing! This is my new best friend. Thank you, SportShield!" —Matthew Leonard

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    10. A cult-favorite pain-relief cream you can apply just about anywhere to relieve discomfort. There's a reason this cream has 19,000+ five-star ratings.


    Promising review: "I have plantar fasciitis and stand on my feet all day for work and I cannot live without this in my life. It works great and is worth every penny." —jwais

    11. A foot elevation pillow to reduce swelling in your feet and legs and encourage deeper, more restorative, pain-free sleep. You want to keep your feet six to 12 inches above your heart for the best results.,

    Promising review: "I have only used this product a few days, but that is all I need to give a two thumbs up review. I am mostly up on my feet all day; my legs are tired for sure. Now when I get home I lie down and my legs go right up on this pillow and I can do exercises like ankle rotations or leg extensions. Within a half hour my legs feel fine. I want to thank the makers of this product because I really didn't know what I was going to do. I was thinking of reducing my work hours to reduce the soreness in my legs and feet. But between this product and my weight lifting regime, I can keep doing the work I enjoy and feel physically fit." —Nikki.

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99.

    12. A pair of moisture-wicking compression socks that'll apply pressure to your legs and feet and may help with circulation issues and swelling.,

    Promising review: "I'm a nurse with varicose veins, (no pain or swelling from it) but I work 12+ hours a shift and my feet are killing by the time I go home. I have tried different compression socks and these are by far the best... At the end of each shift, I can honestly say I don't have the foot pain like before, and I do have more energy." —Jasmine Nicole

    Get them from Amazon for $14.82+ (available in sizes S–XL and 10 styles)

    Check out our full review of Physix Gear compression socks.

    13. A set of compression sleeves so you can still reap the circulation-boosting benefits of compression socks without having to wear a pair that go up to your knees. These are short enough that you can hide them in shoes and no one will even know.,

    Promising review: "I have been wrestling with severe right heel pain for more than a year. I hesitated to try these, because it just didn't seem to make sense that a compression sleeve would work. However, the price was affordable and I knew I could return them if I didn't like them, so what the heck. I have been very pleasantly surprised. From the first night I wore the sleeve, my heel pain began to decrease. Within four to five days, I was able to walk pain-free as soon as I awoke. I still have pain during the day, but even that seems to be decreasing. I am thrilled with these results." —Kimmelane

    Get them from Amazon for $16.95 (available in four sizes and four colors).

    14. A foot roller that'll massage away the pain of a 12-hour shift — no partner needed!

    Promising review: "Wonderful piece of equipment. It's perfect for people who work jobs that require them to stand on their feet all day. I would absolutely recommend. It's easily the most effective $20 you'll spend on foot pain." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.95 (originally $29.95).

    15. Dr. Scholl's massaging gel insoles with cushioning that absorbs shocks so your joints don't bear the brunt of it. Plus, the arch support is clutch for anyone with flat feet.


    Promising review: "This is what true comfort is. Walk all day, stand all day, laugh at the people with sore feet. All shoes should come with these from the factory." —Steve Schulz

    Get it from Amazon for $10.88+ (also available in a two-pack).

    16. A pair of fleece-lined memory foam slippers, because we're pretty sure wearing them is *basically* like walking on clouds.

    Buyers recommend sizing up if you're a half size.

    Promising review: "These are so comfortable! I think I've worn them every day since I bought them! The memory foam is nice and thick, and they're so cozy, and cute on top of that! I think I will easily wear these out purely because of the frequency with which is wear them... And then I'll buy another pair exactly like them!" —Amanda H

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99 (available in women's sizes 5–12).

    17. A natural shoe deodorizer spray you'll wanna spritz on your shoes before bed so you can slip into fresh-smelling shoes tomorrow. It's made with essential oils and smells like lemon and eucalyptus so we don't blame you for spraying it around the rest of your house.

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing! I used it for stinky shoes that I use all the time for commuting and it knocked out the odor overnight. Leaves a pleasant essential oil smell on the shoes while they're drying. I didn't notice it while I was wearing the shoes and it's not overly strong. SO much better than a chemical nasty scent or aerosol sprays!" —Jessica Haworth

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    18. A pack of air purifying bags to absorb any questionable odors that are coming from your shoes, because there's nothing more awkward than trying to figure out where the stink is coming from...and then realizing it's your shoes.


    Promising review: "I have a pair of black leather flats that stank so badly my husband would yell at me if I took them off anywhere near him. But I love the shoes, so I had to find something to make the stench go away without leaving me with an allergic reaction. Mini Moso was the answer. I honestly couldn’t believe it. A few days after placing them in my prized off shoes I took a whiff from about a foot away. Nothing. I got closer. Nothing. I stuck my nose practically in the shoe. Ok, maybe that’s pushing things, but I’ve got to tell you that 95% of the broken-in leather grossness was gone. So happy!!!" —Erin

    19. A leather cleaning brush so you can stop crying over your favorite suede booties that were destroyed by rain and mud. This lil' guy can be used four different ways to clean scuff marks, water spots, and invisible dust.

    Promising review: "BUY THIS THING! I got mud on my new suede boots and thought for sure they were ruined, but this brush completely restored them. I was shocked. I even used it on an old pair of boots from college that I have considered 'ruined' for several years and it did wonders on getting rid of the filth on top of the suede. I was so impressed! It's absolutely worth getting and trying for yourself! Scuff marks take a bit more time to improve but they do look better after brushing them." —Gaby Scott

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    20. A pack of no-tie shoelaces, because yet, they may seem silly at first but they're actually huge time-savers. (I have a hunch that I will die after tripping on my untied shoelace and tumbling down a set of stairs, so I should probably get these!!!) They're also great for anyone with mobility issues who struggles to tie regular laces.


    Promising review: "All I can say is that these shoelaces saved me about 25 minutes every morning with my three kids! Great quality, very nice colors, and super easy to use. Never worry again about tightening shoes in the middle of the street! Recommended 1000000%" —ColorMeLife

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in 12 colors).

    21. A roll of KT tape that'll simultaneously reduce pressure on your joints and muscles and support them so you can go about your day with less pain. They're designed for athletes and are made of a breathable moisture-wicking fabric, however you don't have to be training for a marathon to wear them. And! You can wear them for four to seven days to maximize the value.

    Promising review: "Soooo helpful!! Really! The best!! Kinesiology therapy tape provides light support, prevents injuries from getting worse, and relieves pain. It provides flexible support that's not immobilizing but better than no support. Look at insert or online to learn how to apply it; when done correctly it's sooo incredibly helpful. I've used it with injuries in my wrist and hand, shin splints, ankle pain, foot pain, and more." —Sunshine Jenna

    Get it from Amazon for $16.63 (available in 13 colors and styles).

    22. A foot wrap so you can relieve the pain of being on your feet all day. The gel cold pack fits perfectly under your foot's arch, but you can also use it anywhere that aches.


    Promising review: "I have plantar fasciitis in my left foot. I use this twice a day and it is wonderful. All I do is put the insert into the freezer and when it's ready I put it into the wrap and wrap it around my foot. Now I sit or even lay down too. It's perfect." —Susan Woods

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    23. A foot rocker for achieving a deep stretch in your foot and leg muscles. (This helps reduce your risk of injury.) The gentle rocking motion is also designed to lessen foot pain and increase circulation, which has the added benefit of helping you get to sleep faster.

    Promising review: "I came down with a great case of plantar fasciitis, and a friend who is physical therapist said 'It's about stretching out that calf muscle!'"

    Rather than go through the usual stretching contortions in the hope of focusing in on the calves, I started looking at these kinds of devices. All I can say is: This one is easy to use and is also good for hamstrings and other potentially troublesome muscles that need stretching in order to avoid problems (especially as one ages...). I used it daily and my plantar troubles were gone within a couple of weeks. I don't know if other such devices work better, but this one gets a 100% rating from this aging being." —Honest American Reviewer

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    24. A toe stretcher to help you spread your lil' piggies after trapping them in too-tight shoes all day.

    Promising review: "I bought one for myself. I have double plantar fasciitis. It effects my entire body. I use YogaToes every day for 20 minutes. It does relax my feet and body. I am hoping it will help more as time goes on. I also have high arches and know that it prevents hammer toe and other issues. I bought a pair for each of my sisters. My older sister used them three times before she noticed it was straightening her crooked toe." —Robin

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $29.95.

    25. A pack of scented foot pads that'll not only make your feet smell fresh, but may also promote circulation to your feet to relieve pain and make it easier to sleep.

    Promising review: "I am 40 years old with behavioral and sensory challenges. I am 100% convinced the foot pads are helping me. I apply them bilaterally right before I fall asleep. I have noticed every time that I wake up HAPPIER, less moody, less irritated, more receptive, and more energetic. I have used this product for one week almost continuously. The nights that I have forgotten to apply the foot pads, next morning I can tell the difference in my behavior." —The reviewer

    Get a box of 20 from Amazon for $19.97.

    26. A pair of Birkenstocks, because your tired feet deserve a shoe that's actually comfortable. Birkenstocks are designed with proper arch support and a deep foot cup so your 1,000th step is as comfy as the first.,

    Promising review: "I have purchased several brands to try to rid myself of the pain of plantar fasciitis, but this is the first that did it by just putting it on. I love that the straps are adjustable, too, and that there is great arch support as I have high arches. The deep heel cup and the toe grip make them very easy to wear all day and walk in everywhere I need to go. I will probably buy more Birkenstocks as my legs and feet continue to heal." —Tru2My Style

    Get them from Amazon for $89.95+ (Many styles and colors available in various sizes.)
