Kushyfoot Product Review

The Details

Kushyfoot bills their product as “the first brand in women’s hosiery to incorporate the ancient healing art of Reflexology.” To do that, they add a 3-dimensional padding – or what they call “massaging sole” – to their hosiery which cushions the feet. The Kushyfoot® sole helps relieve tension and discomfort in achy feet, thereby helping to relieve stress and fatigue throughout the entire body.

Their sport socks also come with arch support in the form of a band that is a bit tighter.

Reflexology is based on the ancient healing principle that everything is connected. By creating socks, hose and sandals that integrate a massaging cushion designed by Reflexology experts, Kushyfoot claims their hosiery will relieve tension and discomfort in achy feet—and even stress and fatigue throughout the entire body!

On their site, there is a section where you can click on the diagram of a foot and it will tell you the reflexology relation of that spot to your foot and how Kushysocks will help.

They offer a wide variety of hosiery, from foot covers to be worn with stylish shoes, knee highs, tights, and many sock options including athletic, casual, and even yoga! They also carry toe pads for a minimal coverage while still getting support, and Flats To Go®, which are lightweight and convenient for on-the-go wear, while still being supportive.

Their 2014 Fall collection has fun new styles and trendy colors, with more than 20 foot and toe cover looks.

I received Kushyfoot’s Lace Foot Covers, Yoga Socks, Sport Foot Covers, and Athletic Socks to try for this review.

 

The Experience

I have to say, when I first opened the package I thought, “Socks. Meh.” But that was partly because the first thing I noticed is the athletic socks I received were white and I, um, don’t ever wear white socks. (It’s just a weird thing with me.)

But you can’t judge a sock by its color, so I put them on.IMG_0704

Either I’d forgotten or I didn’t realize these socks are designed to “massage your feet with every step,” so I was surprised, and a bit skeptical, when I read that. But then I tried them on and wow! That extra padding is great!

I love shoes. Scratch that – I adore shoes. Especially high heels and other non-sensible footwear. And MY OH MY have I had my share of bad days after wearing unsupportive footwear.

Take my brother’s wedding for example. I had on a the most wickedly awesome pair of shoes. (See photo.) And I wore them ALL NIGHT.
Through the wedding, through the long break between wedding and reception, through the reception, even through HOURS of dancing.
Where other women changed into flip flops or discarded their shoes all together on the dance floor, oh no, not me.
I wore those kick-ass shoes until I dumped myself into bed at 3am.

And holy shit did my feet hurt the next day.

Yes, it was worth it.
Yes, I’d do it again.
Shut up, those shoes were HAWT.

And now I realize wearing a pair of Kushyfoot foot covers with those shoes would’ve been AMAZE-BALLS.

Padded sole – nice! And black lace – fancy!

(I’m sorry I said AMAZE-BALLS.)

The pads of my feet hurt so badly the next day. And I’ve noticed that after wearing other heels for long periods of time, too.

As soon as I put on the Kushyfoot foot covers, I knew I’d found my high heels enabler. Where other people give unhelpful advice like, “Just wear comfortable shoes,” – uh, NO – Kushyfoot comes through with “If you’re gonna wear those shoes, here – you’ll want THESE to help.” Finally – helpful and welcome support!

 

The foot covers I received came in white cotton to wear with any shoes, and black and nude lace, which are more sheer to wear with dressy shoes.

The yoga socks are very similar to the ones I already own by another brand. They’re the kind that separate the toes, which is supposed to be good for your feet (and good to wear while getting a pedicure!), but what I don’t like about my other yoga socks, and what I don’t like about these, is how high they go on your ankle. I like high-HIGH shoes and low-LOW socks. But, these are handy for travel when you don’t want to take along your yoga mat because the anti-skid sole provides grip and helps with balance.

Use

Yoga Socks. Too big!

The athletic socks are my least favorite when it comes to looks, again because they’re white and because the ones I got aren’t super low-cut, but still, I tried them on and was pleased to find that the arch support really does feel good, as promised. This might be a really great option for those in need of arch support and those who engage in any dynamic exercise.


The Verdict

Pros:

  • Padded sole adds comfort and support
  • Arch support band
  • Hosiery in a variety of styles and colors
  • Prices are very reasonable
  • Additional information on reflexology is helpful

Cons:

  • I don’t care for the white color or the higher ankle, but that’s just my personal preference
  • The yoga socks did have a bit of fraying on the edges.
  • Socks come in one-size-fits-all, so the yoga socks were a bit too large for my feet

I like these products and I will wear them!

My Recommendation:
Buy Kushyfoot Hosiery
at their website so that you, too, can wear terribly unsupportive BUT HAWT shoes!
