Clammy feet on slippery mat, NO MORE!
on January 9, 2012
I recently started taking yoga and on the first day I wore just regular socks knowing my clammy feet would be an issue, but NOT knowing how unsturdy on the mat I was in cotton socks, trying to hold positions like planking or downward facing dog. Then I tried taking a class without any socks, but again it was difficult doing the positions previously mentioned because my feet sweat and I was slipping all over the place. Embarrassing...
Though I didn't purchase this item from Amazon (I saw them in the yoga/pilates aisle at Target), I wanted to post a review anyway for anyone else that may want to purchase these socks for a similar reason.
I am a Women's size 10 1/2 W (sometimes a 10, sometimes an 11) and the Small/Medium fits great, not too big nor small (to my surprise!). I stick like a fly on the wall with these socks. They're comfortable, the sectioned toes don't dig into my skin, my feet don't get hot (they don't get too cold either), and they conform nicely to the shape of the foot. I will say, though, that I don't completely lift my feet when transitioning so they sweep along the mat a little, so sometimes the toes or heel may get a little twisted (which isn't uncomfortable and EASILY fixable) but bottom line: They STAY ON! I read some reviews where the socks are slipping off their feet? Geez... unless they're break-dancing, I can't see how.
Anyway, the size, the fit, and the stick do the job magnificently. I would recommend these socks for people with clammy feet or for people who just need a little extra grip to their mat.
