Solafeet Foot Tanner Probably Doubles As A Foot Warmer

solarfoottanner

By Chris Scott Barr

I’m one of those people that always wears socks. No, I don’t wear sandals with socks, I just don’t wear them at all. I’m generally happy with a nice pair of Chucks, regardless of the weather. This does mean that my feet are pretty white in comparison to my legs. That might be something that would bother some people, but I wouldn’t be one of them. If you’re more sensitive about the whiteness of your feet, there is a solution.

Apparently it is such a large issue to have white feet that someone decided to create a special device to tan them. Essentially, the Solafeet Foot Tanner is a box that blasts your feet with light. It will supposedly take only 5-10 days of using it for 15 minutes to get your feet to the desired color. If you’re really that worried about your feet, you’ll need to throw down $220 on this contraption.

    I could totally see someone using that thing too much and ending up with ridiculously brown feet.

    wow

    I see this being a bad thing. Someone falls asleep in it, and gets wrinkly brown feet. It mentions nothing about a timer, or intensity setting. Seems like a little bit more work is needed before it can go main stream.

    ha! This is practically how tanning was invented.
    The hand and foot tanner…
    I do have tanlines on my foot- flip flop tan lines that peek out from beneath my pant leg… but I wear this more as a badge of honor rather than something I need to tan out.

    that doesn't sound dangerous at all. nope. no fires will start because of this thing.

  • cirez

    Not a fan of tanning, or this. But im sure some people are excited.

    As a fair-skinned ginger, I can't help but feel this will simply add freckles to my currently freckle-free feet. All this for only $220? I'll get my credit card!

    Has any of you used this? Of course it has a timer and it conforms to FDA regs. No one tans their feet only with white legs. Are you all over the edge? I play golf and have tan legs and I use to have very white feet. Now I have the same color feet as my legs. This helps a lot when I change into my open-toed shoes and sandals. Some of my friends use tanning lotion on their feet. Now this would be a useful discussion. Has anyone ever used this stuff without looking like they “oranged out” with nice brown cuticles? And why talk about cancer when you've just been in the sun for the last 4 hours? If sunscreen worked so well, how come you're so tan on your legs? I wear sunscreen and I tan my feet to match. I also laugh like hell when I see those white feet!
