Yoga Socks to Help You Hold Your Pose
Yoga Socks: Sliding around while trying to Downward Dog in your yoga flow is the freaking worst. Rather than focusing on your breath, feeling the stretch, and connecting with yourself, you end up focusing on keeping your feet from slipping, and your hour of calm is replaced by pure agitation.
While you may like going barefoot in your barre, pilates, kickboxing, dance, or yoga class, you might also want to keep in mind that wearing appropriate footwear, like socks, can protect you from viruses on the floor or mats that can cause unpleasant things like plantar warts. Yikes. For this reason, some gyms also require that you were sticky socks.
Yoga Gloves And Socks
We’ve rounded up the best socks to protect your toes and to keep you grounded (a.k.a. zero slip) so that you stick every single pose during your next class. These breathable, sweat-wicking socks are perfect for hot yoga. They have added cushioning and grippy soles, so feet don’t slide while you’re sweating it out in Bikram.
Non-Slip Yoga Socks
Silicon dot technology on the bottoms of these low-cut socks gives you more control in barre and yoga. We love that they come in a variety of bold solids, ombre patterns, and prints, and are hand-dipped with eco-friendly dyes.
Arch support and grippy bottoms make these soft, lightweight socks even more comfortable and effective on slick studio floors. Also good? They have an anti-blister heel panel to prevent excess rubbing.
Yoga Grip Socks
Environmentally-friendly PVC patterns on the bottom of these grippy socks helps you nail your form in pilates, barre, and yoga. They’re amazing at keeping your feet in place when planking, too.
These stylish socks have sparkly mesh panels for added breathability and polka dot grips to prevent skidding during your workout. Plus, the right and left socks are designed with the shape of each foot in mind, so your socks fit like a glove.
Socks For Men
Being able to spread your toes naturally in these organic, no-slip socks helps you to find your balance, whether it be in yoga, barre, dance, or kickboxing class. And the two-toned colorway is anything but boring.
The eco-friendly, stay-put grippers on these cute socks are made from super thin PVC to help you nail Downward Dog with zero slippage. The fabric regulates temperature and wicks away moisture, so your feet don’t get all sweaty, and cushioned blister tabs prevent chafing. And with every pair of Bombas socks purchased, one pair is donated to someone in need.
Yoga Toes Socks
If you’re ever without a yoga mat, pull on these full-toe, non-slip socks to practice your vinyasa flow. Great for traveling, you can easily pop these in your carry-on and get your om on wherever you are.
Two is always better than one! This two-pack of non-skid socks are machine washable (yay for no handwashing!) and give you the grip you need for barre, yoga, or pilates.
