Nobody has perfect feet. Nobody. We put so much pressure on them with all our walking, shopping, working out, etc., not to mention expecting them to wear horrible footwear that looks great but could be more, um, ergonomic? Sandals in the summer, wool socks in the winter – those dogs of ours are under assault all year, and we have to care for them. They are family, after all! Oh For Feet Sake by Bar Maids can turn your little piggies from a source of shame to a claim to fame in two weeks or less. Those tootsies deserve better. Let Bar Maids give them some love, boys and girls! Infused with Tea Tree oil and natural moisturizers, it’s healing and protection that your feet can feel. If your trotters are REALLY feeling the strain, go to for the simple Bar Maids Tootsie Rx recipe. Show those babies some love and attention, because, let’s be honest, you’re never gonna stop walking all over your feet.
