When it comes to picking the best gaming chair, there are a lot of factors that you need to look at. You have the price, material (which determines the durability), and, of course, comfort.
One feature that most gamers look for in gaming chairs is the footrest, which is the part of the chair that allows you to put your feet up in a relaxed position.
This can go a really long way to promote a healthy spine.
If you are looking for a chair that has a footrest, this is the article for you. So, kick back (no pun intended) and check out the top gaming chairs with the footrest feature.
Ficmax Ergonomic Gaming Chair
The first gaming chair on our list is this Ergonomic chair from Ficmax. Ficmax Ergonomic Gaming chair comes with a speck of dirt and fades resistant leather, which makes the chair very durable for anyone seeking the most durable gaming chair.

However, as you may have noticed, this chair is quite pricy, so you need to have a higher budget if you want to buy the Ficmax.
Respawn 900 Style Gaming Recliner
The second chair on our list comes from a well-recognized brand, Respawn. The brand has been known for its years of making quality recliners, particularly for gamers like you and me.
For gamers that are looking for a chair that will give you a unique experience different from a typical gaming chair, here is the recliner you should try out. If it seems like I’m running away from the term “chair”, it is because I am. This is more of a recliner than a chair.
It comes with thick padding that is designed to give you the maximum comfort, which is further backed up by the removable headrest pillow.
Besides providing comfort for your neck and back, this recliner comes with a footrest, to keep your legs positioned in any way you like.
This recliner can be adjusted to about 35 degrees, which makes it very flexible. On the left armrest, you have a cup holder where you can put your refreshments, and you will also have a pouch, in which you can place your controllers. This recliner has it all.
Dimensions: 51.18” x 30.71” x 44.88”
Homall Gaming Chair, $150
Next up, we have the $150 gaming chair from Homall. I would say that this is the chair that offers a great balance between an inexpensive price and great quality. If you want to buy a gaming chair without spending too much money, this is the gaming chair for you.
It comes with a large cushioning, which is covered by a very attractive leather, so you are assured that you will be comfortable. The issue that gamers mostly have with thick cushioning is that it can really feel hot, especially when you are gaming on a hot day.
To allow air circulation, the chair has holes, so you will kept cool under the hottest summer temperatures.
While the armrests are not adjustable, the rest if the chair is. It is said to tilt to about 160 degrees, which is fair.
Just like the footrest in the Ficmax model (number 1 on our list), the Homall’s gaming chair has footrest that can also be adjusted based on your preference.
Overall, I would say that this is a very good chair that will give gamers the best comfort and base stability that they need. You will never go wrong with this gaming chair.
VON RACER Gaming Chair, $120
On number 4, we have a gaming chair from VON RACER. The VON RACER chair is a great choice for people that are looking for something that will be easy on your wallet without sacrificing the quality of the product.
While the Homall gaming chair can tilt to about 160 degrees, this VON RACER model can only reach up to 135 degrees maximum.
The other difference between these models has to be the padding. The VON RACER chair has thin padding which can’t be compared to that of the Homall gaming chair.
However, the cushioning in this chair isn’t as comfortable as that of, let’s say, the Homall gaming chair. As such, it is not suitable for very long gaming sessions because you can really feel uncomfortable- So I guess some quality is sacrificed by the lower price after all.
Despite the thin padding, this is one of the most durable chairs that you can find, particular at that lower price. Also, you are provided with a footrest that will put the comfort of your legs at ease.
On top of that, this chair is fully customizable, so you can adjust it in the best way that gives you comfort.
Overall, I would recommend this chair to you if you are looking for something within a small budget.
Homall Gaming Recliner, $160
Here, Homall comes with yet another product. For gamers that prefer to play games on a console than a PC, this is the recliner that I would recommend to you.
To allow the chair to be durable, the Homall recliner comes with a quality PU leather lining, which also gives it a smart appearance.
This chair can recline to a maximum of 180 degrees, which makes it perfect for when you want to take a nap in your chair.
The best feature that comes with this recliner is the footrest. It is very comfortable for your legs and spine. Also it is foldable, which means you can simply fold it when you don’t feel like using it.
However, the chair can only hold a weight of up to 265 pounds, which is less than what most chairs can hold. It could be better though.
Overall, the recliner comes at a good price and it is an excellent choice for you if you are looking for a more a-f-fordable gaming chair- if you know what I mean. As I said earlier, recliners are always perfect for people that use gaming consoles and opposed to those gaming PCs.
Next up, we have the Pulaski Recliner which, as you might have seen, comes at a ridiculously high price. However, don’t get me wrong, I’m not discouraging you. If you are not worried about the price and are just looking for comfort and the best gaming experience, congratulations! You found yourself a match.
Just like the Homall recliner that we talked about earlier, the Pulaski recliner is a suitable choice for console players.
In terms of the quality, the Pulaski chair is covered in a faux leather, which makes this recliner very durable, so you this recliner will last a really long time.
What about the comfort? In terms of the comfort, the price clearly speaks for this recliner. It comes with a very thick which, along with the dense cushioning, gives you the comfort that no other gaming chair will ever give you.
Also, the cushioning is airier, which means that you will be provided with the best air circulation to keep you cool during the hottest days.
The chair comes with a wall outlet slot and USB ports, both of which are built in the armrest storage compartment.
With these outlet features, you can charge up to three different peripherals, such as your laptop, phone and even your gaming controllers of course. You can do all this at once while you’re playing a game, which makes this a very suitable chair.
In terms of the footrest, it has a thick cushioning and it is foldable, allowing you to use it just when you need it. With a weight capacity of up to 300 pounds, this chair is simple the best.
However, the price is just way too high. This is the chair that you can buy when you have a really high budget. When you do buy this chair, you will certainly find the comfort… uplifting. It is worth the price.
Respawn Fortnite OMEGA-Xi

This chair comes a black color and has orange as well as silver accents. Also, I should point out that the “Fortnite” in the name came because of the color scheme.
That being said, this chair has a great appearance and stylish colors that make it look simply stunning.
To ensure that you receive the best comfort to your neck and back, the chair has segmented padding, so no matter how long your gaming session is, you will still be left feeling comfortable.
