Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed products and single out the most convincing. While we’ve covered the best standing deskslaptop stations, under-desk ellipticals and cycles, and mats for standing desks, here we’re zeroing on the best foot rest cushions on Amazon. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)

Best foot rest cushions

“I’m short (5’2”) and was stuck with an office chair that wouldn’t go low enough to the ground for my feet to reach the floor properly. I had been using a large footstool from my living room, but it was just too large to be practical or comfortable. My knees were starting to suffer from the extreme discomfort of it all, not to mention being in need of some fidgety stretching. Being able to flip this footrest over and roll it back and forth provides that extra help to relieve some tension in the joints. I’m used to hard plastic footrests, so I was leery about this one. I was happy to find the density of the foam to be spot-on with what I needed. I have since acquired an office chair that lets my feet go flat on the floor, but that has only added to the effectiveness of the Smart N Comfy. I am quite pleased with this product.”
