'A cloud for your feet': Turn your desk into a spa with this bestselling cushion — on sale for $21

What is it?

The BlissTrends Foot Rest is designed to make long hours easier on your body by repositioning you to better support your feet, knees, legs and hips and, ultimately, your back. How much time do you spend sitting each day? Whether you're strapped to the computer for work or you have a sitting-intensive hobby, a bit more comfort is always welcome. Right now this No. 1 bestseller is on sale for just $21 (down from $30) in black at Amazon. It'll provide an assist for a variety of body types, but if you are vertically challenged, it can be especially useful.

This device will take a load off your feet, knees and back; its sale price will be very light on your wallet.

Why is this a good deal?

This little foot-focused miracle doesn't go on sale terribly often, and this price is one of the lowest we've seen. Between the on-page coupon and the existing discount, it's basically 30% off.

Why do I need this?

Designed to improve posture, this cushion includes two supportive layers. The bottom one is two inches thick, while the upper layer is almost double that. The top is curved to provide more ergonomic support and is meant to be enjoyed sans shoes. This puts it about five inches off the ground, so if your legs don't normally reach the floor, this is a great way to keep something solid beneath your feet.

The cushion has a zipper-removable cover that makes it easy to take off and wash. Underneath is a layer of high-quality foam that will hold its shape while providing continual support to your feet.

Your imagination is the only limit to what this thing can do. Take it with you on a plane or in the car (if you are a passenger, of course) for a comfortable ride, or use it at the couch. You can even take the top layer and put it under your knees in bed, or flip it over on your lap to use as a portable desk.

What reviewers say

Nearly 2,000 Amazon reviewers have given it a five-star rating, praising the comfort it provides.

"A cloud for your feet in the concrete jungle," one poetic reviewer said. "Alright, folks, let's talk about the unsung hero of the office environment: the footrest. More specifically, the BlissTrends Foot Rest for Under Desk at Work. This little piece of ergonomic heaven is like a personal cloud for your feet, and let me tell you, it's a game-changer." The fan goes on to say, "It's like walking in a field of marshmallows, but without the sticky mess."

Another user said, "I've got knee issues and it helps to have my feet propped up while sitting at my desk, as well as on my couch. This footrest is comfy when using the rounded side, but I also really like using the flat side for some reason. Maybe I just like being able to rock my feet back and forth. In any case, it was a good purchase!"

"Literally the best thing I've bought all year," said this restless raver. "This thing is a game changer. It is soft and smooth, and being able to set it to rock or be flat gives me a fidget option that doesn't distract from meetings the way twisting in my chair feels."

Even gamers had something to say: "Didn't know I needed this, but it adds so much comfort and I'm looking forward to long gaming sessions."

Supportive yet soft, this ergonomic wonder is designed to keep your body aligned.
