7 Foot Massagers That Will Make Your Tired, Sore Feet *So* Happy

Pre-COVID, the cause of most of the foot soreness I experienced came from wearing all kinds of hot-but-impractical shoes during nights out with friends, drinking cocktails in crowded bars and flirting with strangers. These days my footwear is predominantly fuzzy slippers and this particular pair of Havaianas flip-flops, and I spend most of my day on my couch staring at my computer or in bed staring at my phone. So basically, while my feet don't get sore as frequently, clearly I could use some self-care. Regardless of the reason your feet are sore—or you're tired, or sad about life—a foot massage can be game-changing—as I've recently discovered during my quest to find the best foot massager. Another thing I recently discovered? The amount of people who will post reviews, including pictures of their feet. At-home massagers are also wonderful if you're weird about feet (like I am) and don't want another human to touch them, or have been isolated inside your apartment lacking human touch for a year (also like I am).
