Thanko, a Japanese company that specializes in producing computer hardware and funky USB gadgets, recently released the Thanko Foot Coolers to help prevent tootsies from smelling stinky.

This strange, but useful device is USB-powered and is hooked up to a tube that can be discreetly strapped onto your leg inside your pants. The tube is then inserted into your sock or shoe, it’s your choice. This versatile contraption is designed to drive cool or warm air into your shoe, which can be used to cool sweaty feet or underarms in the summer or dry wet socks in the spring. That way, if you’re off to an important meeting or to someone’s house with moist, squishy socks, you can eliminate the potential of unpleasant odors. The best part is that this fan can even be plugged into your phone so you can have dry feet on the run.

Not a fan? You can also try other ways to use the pump, like inflating party balloons too. Stats for Foot-Specific Cooling Fans Trending: Older & Mild
