People tend to associate yoga or pilates with being barefoot. However, the right socks can increase your grip, helping you to nail each pose and improve your form. These socks are an option whether you are taking your first yoga class or are a regular at pilates. So what makes a good pilates sock?
The main reason for wearing pilates socks is the grip. A high grip sock will help to ensure that your feet don't slip when holding each pose. This tends to be achieved with rubber or silicon dots on the sole of the sock to increase that non-slip grip.
A sweaty sock is not only smelly but can be distracting and affect your form. That’s why, just like with the rest of your workout clothes, your socks need to be breathable to ensure that your feet are kept dry as you exercise.
Mindfulness is an important aspect of yoga and pilates. Therefore, if your socks feel comfortable, you’ll have one less possible distraction. Features like arch support, a cushioned heel and seamless toes all add to the comfort. With the right pair, you’ll never want to take them off!
Ok this one might not be as important but hear us out... If you look good, you feel good, which means you’re more likely to power through when you're struggling with a workout. Choose socks with a design that make you feel confident.
Our pilates socks here at STRIDIES were specially designed for maximum comfort when doing pilates, yoga or a barre workout. Our Comfit Arch along with Seam3Toe and Twiston Cotton technologies make them perfect for you to wear when you do pilates. Not only that, but whenever we sell a pair of socks we donate a pair to homeless shelters across the UK, meaning that buying socks from us does not only help you find your zen, but it helps those in need too!
