We chose to feature the Pedi Perfect Wet & Dry Foot File because it offers the convenience and versatility of being able to use in the water or dry. The ergonomic soft grip handle makes it comfortable to hold, and the 360-degree spinning head rotates at your choice of 2 speeds for gentle buffing and callus removal. The only real downside? Some users complain that the buffing action is actually a little too gentle, meaning that it may take more than one session to achieve desired results. On the other hand, this could actually be a good thing, because you know you won’t be able to file away too much skin at once – certainly not so much that it will leave your feet uncomfortable.
Besides the 2-speed spinning head and soft-grip handle, features include:
Don’t forget that replacement rollers are also available, so this product should have a pretty long life.
You might be surprised to learn that Microplane makes kitchen and woodworking tools in addition to foot care implements. What would a company that sells graters know about foot health? As it turns out, they know quite a lot. Using their understanding of how zesters work on the surface of fruit, the people at Miroplane adapted the concept of grating and zesting to the thick, often rough skin on the feet.
This foot file and buffer almost looks like a grater, but you shouldn’t expect it to be rough. In fact, the XL-Pro removes calluses and rough skin quickly, effectively, and gently. The long handle makes it easy to manage, although the wide, flat shape can make accessing harder to reach areas somewhat of a chore. For the larger areas of the foot though, the XL-Pro works like a dream.
This is a simple but effective tool that includes these features:
The CL-Pro is also very easy to wash and maintain. Simply rinse with soap and water after use. Under normal use, the cartridges should last a good amount of time, and they are easy to replace when they do wear out.
Naturalico products are designed to help users improve their heath, comfort, and appearance naturally. Products include gentle anti-aging serum, heated shiatsu massager, and foot care tools like the one we’re featuring.

We chose this particular foot file because of the high level of customer satisfaction, the simplicity of the product, and the overall value. If you don’t need a mechanical file, or one that serves multiple functions, this will do the trick just fine. The coarse side should be used on dry skin, while the smooth side can be used wet. To clean, you can rinse, or purchase a sanitizer for that purpose.
If you haven’t used a foot file before, this could be a good one to start with. The price makes it a low-risk purchase, and it’s super simple to use.
Salon services can get expensive, and making the trip is a daunting task on its own. But did you know you can get a little TLC (tender, loving care) right in the comfort of your home? Whether it’s applying nail polish for your prom, using a microdermabrasion machine to improve your skin’s lustre for your high school reunion, or detoxing your body with an ionic foot spa, there’s all sorts of self-administered care on hand. And now filing and buffing your feet is just as easy with a high quality foot file.
Before you set out to buy the best foot file, it’s important to consider the functions you want and the type of skin you’ll be working with, whether wet or dry. Furthermore, you should give some thought to where you’ll be using the foot file – at home or on the road – because some models are manually powered, and others are battery driven. Bring home the pedicure tool your feet will love you for!
Foot files are inexpensive foot care tools for the most part, but there are a few models that are on the higher end of the spectrum. Considering it should last you for years on end, buying a cheap foot file shouldn’t cross your mind. If you don’t need a lot of bells and whistles, a model that lives up its job description will cost you roughly $8. But if you want to be the Heidi Klum of your block, you’re going to have to up your game a little and opt for a feature rich foot file, one that will pamper your feet just the way to like it, and wherever and whenever you’d like to give your feet a makeover. To give you a rough idea, the price of foot files can range between $8 and $30+ for a premium, rechargeable model that will allow you to experience luxurious, salon style treatments.
A foot file, foot buffer or foot scraper is designed to help you get the best foot treatment possible, but there’s a world of a difference between using a pumice stone and a foot file for cracked heals.
That said, here are a few factors to consider when shopping for the best foot file for your needs.
First things first—you should decide on the type of roller you need – or will a double sided, wooden foot file be just right for your foot care needs? With regards to type of roller, common options include a dual speed system, removable and closed heads. To break it down for you, closed rollers clog easier but are ideal for exfoliating skin, whereas removable models don’t clog as much, and are easy to clean by detaching the roller from the device. You might want to opt for a dual speed system if you have a serious callus issue or want to work on both sensitive and harsh skin.
Whether manual or electric, most high quality foot file devices are easy to haul around discreetly wherever you go. Electric pedicure devices can be electric power supplied, battery powered or rechargeable, and the type you choose truly depends on what your needs are and how much time you need to service your feet for.
Foot files can be had with several accessories. Some are included in the package while others will have to be bought separately, such as additional attachments and heads. Speaking of rollers, it’s a good idea to consider their density. If, for example, you have thick calluses, you will need extra coarse rollers to tackle them well and not soft rollers. Even if you’re buying a basic manual foot file, you should buy one that’s built to last such as one made from high quality wood for long service life. Foot files generally are easy to use, and some can even nourish your feet in wet conditions like the shower. Furthermore, most high quality foot files offer the convenience of USB charging, and some even come with a docking station that does both – store and simultaneously charge the device.
