Self-care gear to make your feet feel good.
Take good care of your feet. That was the first thing my mother said to me when I asked her for life advice. If you can’t bare weight or if it hurts to bare weight on your feet, it’s much harder to move forward in life.
I’ve taken her advice to heart. If you do Pilates & classes then you know most of my classes have exercises that will stretch and strengthen your feet. One of my teachers starts her classes with foot exercises using the Franklin balls. She’s quite a few years older than me and is still in fantastic shape. She continues to be an inspiration for aging well. So you’ll likely the balls in my Pilates & classes.
I’ve been using and gifting the products below and felt that they are worth sharing with you too.
Five self-care foot products worth the money:
1/ Neuro Ball
Similar to the Franklin balls, the Neuro Ball will help stretch and stimulate the nerves in your feet. It’s especially good for those experiencing balance issues and/or neuropathy. A short YouTube video will show you how to use it.
I wear SuperFeet insoles for sports and love them. If you visit their website, do the assessment to help select the right insole for your foot and sport. New customers save 10% off orders purchased direct from their website.
SuperFeet is a mission driven company that gives a portion of their sales to an initiative important to you and selected by you. They are embracing the B Corp model of doing well and doing good.
3/ Naboso Neuro Insoles
I discovered these insoles from a physical therapist in my network and later learned that they were developed by a Podiatrist. For those with balance and/or neuropathy issues, the Naboso Neuro Insoles are a good option.
Similar to the Neuro Ball, the insoles are designed to enhance your balance by stimulating the nerves in your feet. They are expensive but worth the money especially if they give you or a loved one more confidence to move or prevent a fall. Movement is essential to health and life.
The brand is still recommended by foot specialists because the footbed is designed for foot health and wellbeing.
For many, Berkenstocks are a summer essential. The sandals are easy to slip on and off quickly as you transition between indoor and outdoor venues as well as comfortable for standing in place at a BBQ or summer concert.
If you haven’t already, the Birkenstock web-site is worth visiting. There are more styles for more seasons than you might realize. Plus they have a skincare line with products specifically formulated for hands and feet.
5/ Conair Foot Bath
The Conair Waterfall Foot Pedicure Spa is big enough for those with longer than average feet and has several tools and features for softening skin and stimulating your feet. If you don’t like baths or professional pedicures, this a good option for maintaining the skin on your feet.
