Some time ago, I wrote an article Make $600 a Week From Home. A Practical Guide How To Sell Feet Pics. I thought I covered it all, and the topic is closed. At least for me, but…
Since then, I have got a ton of feedback. Among other things, questions about Instafeet came up. Basically, I can summarize it as: “Rit, you indefatigable Renaissance man. You did not cover Instafeet in depth! Is it any good? Is it safe? Is it legit?!“
I admit, I touched on the topic of Instafeet just in passing, and I explained the reason why in my previous article. But only by looking at the amount of incorrect or misleading information about this matter, I realized that I cannot ignore this. I just have to go back and dive into the fascinating world of feet pics hustle once again.
So, all my kinky people, let me illuminate you. This is a detailed Instafeet review.

What is Instafeet?
Instafeet.com (also operates under the domain Sellfeetpics.com) is a subscription site that lets feet kink content creators monetize their “work.” Their business model allows creators to upload their feet pictures and charge a monthly subscription for their content. Insatfeet try to mimic much larger adult content subscription site Onlyfans.
The domain was registered back in 2012, but the site is active only since 2018. It is a relatively new and not very popular resource compared to other places where you can sell feet pictures.
How does Instafeet work?
According to information available on their website, there are 5 steps for content creators to get started:
- Create a profile.
- Post content.
- Set subscription price.
- Get Instafeet profile link.
- Promote it on social media.
Though it is recommended below $10 /month, content creators can set up any monthly subscription price for their content. From that, Instafeet is taking their 10% cut.
It is also stated that all content creators must be approved by an admin.
Curiously, there is basically no information or help topic for potential users about registering and using the site. But honestly, if you are interested, you will figure it out by yourself. It is only 2 steps:
- Create a profile.
- Choose a creator to follow.
Note! Users must also use the same sign-up form as creators.
Is Instafeet legit?
Short answer – no. Compared to legitimate sites, there are a lot of so-called “red flags” on Instafeet.com. – no contact page, broken links or not valid links, poor grammar and spelling, outdated social network pages and bad online feedback.
Internet security experts always underline that reputable and legitimate companies will always list “about us” page and ways to get in touch with them. So, that’s one of the first things you should look for.
Instafeet’s “about us” page is not linked to any other page, and you can access it only if you type it directly in the browser. Information given there is vague and very generic.
They have stated in their “Terms of Service”, that SiliconCamp.com operates Instafeet.com, but SiliconCamp.com is an expired domain, and it is currently for sale.
In section “Privacy”, there is a remark that for further information about your rights and how to make a formal complaint you should contact Information Commissioner at telephone: 0303 123 1113.
I have checked the number. It belongs to ICO – The UK’s independent authority set up to uphold information rights in the public interest, promoting openness by public bodies and data privacy for individuals. I am not sure how it is related to Instafeet.com customers.
And finally, you simply cannot oversee poor grammar and spelling.
Besides, there are some other concerns. On the website, it is stated that Instafeet has 87315 Creators and 8407 Subscribers, but there is now way to check these figures. However, it goes in contradictions with Alexa site metrics for Instafeet.com
Still, I could not find any hard evidence that Instafeet is a scam (in a sense – take your money and run).
Who actually owns Instafeet?
According to the data-first engagement platform, Apollo.io Instafeet is a “one-man” company located in Santa Clara, California, and run by Fabian Lejsek.
I was able to track down Fabian’s Lejsek Linkedin profile, where he basically confirms his ownership.
CAUTION. WARNING. You probably should know that according to MyLife, Fabian himself DOES have Court, Arrest, or Criminal Records.
This leads us to the next question.
Is Instafeet safe?
Even though feet pics are not considered pornography, Instafeet.com asks for users to upload their ID. They claim that it is necessary to confirm your age and identity. Later you have to give them also your payment information.
Considering all information given above, I would be not comfortable to share my personal information with Instafeet, besides there are some alarming comments on TrustPilot.
Instafeet: fake reviews
Similar to many other lower-tier adult entertainment sites, Instafeet practices dubious marketing techniques to promote itself.
Quick google search reviles several copy-paste articles with super positive reviews articles about Instafeet published on different platforms (see examples here, here or here).
Another thing that you will notice shortly after collecting in-depth information about Instafeet is this fascinating, but fake story about how some Aussie girl Rachel made a lot of money on this platform.
And the same in written form here.
Real User reviews about Instafeet
Although probably Fabian does his best, this platfform still feels like a very discounted version of Onlyfans.
You don’t need to be a detective to realize that it is still one man’s project. For example, the site is created in WordPress and still uses the WP icon.
Instafeet webpage is buggy and with some strange limitations. That’s one of the main users ’ complaints.
The site is extremely slow; According to information given on the website, it can take from 1 to 3 weeks to approve the user’s account.
On Trustpilot, there are 6 users reviews about Instafeet. All negative.
Alternatives to Instafeet
There are many alternatives to Instafeet. Most common niche sites are Dollarfeet, Feetify and Feetfinder. Feet sellers also widely use social media platforms such as Twitter, Tumblr, Reddit and Instagram as well as adult oriented sites like Onlyfans, Justfor.fans and Chaturbate.

Instafeet customer support
It looks like customer support simply does not exist for this project. This is also confirmed in several real customer reviews about Instafeet. You will not find any contact forms on the Instafeet webpage. Event not an email.
The project has social media profiles on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, but those are not very active. The last post on FB is from February 2019.
Last tweet – March 2020.
So, I would think twice before entrusting any of my payment or personal details to such a website.
Before we jump to conclusions, let’s summarize.
Pros of Instafeet:
- The site tends to provide one of the easiest ways to supplement your income.
- It forms a ground for cultivating long-lasting friendships.
Cons of Instafeet:
- The site is full of bugs.
- The website does not have an About Us page.
- The site does not share any contact details.
It seems like everyone is scrambling to find a way to make money online in today’s world. Unfortunately, unlike other bloggers, I can’t say that this is a safe and legit platform to trade your feet pics. There are many safer ways and better venues for that.
But, the times are hard, and I appreciate an entrepreneurship spirit in people.
Even when I think that Instafeet is totally not worth your time, I still believe that dudes like Fabian deserves their chance. So, Nice one, Fabian!
