Great Toe Socks For Yoga or Barre-a-holics
on November 30, 2012
These are the best and only toe socks that allow me to have the cool yoga gear, do my cardio barre classes a few times a week, and not have to be constantly doing laundry. I bought 6 or so pairs.
The price is incredible and would merit a much lower quality product. You can't get any grippy socks for anywhere close to this price, much less cute, black toe socks.
I would definitely buy these again. But will write some pros and cons to help others decide:
Thickness - these are about as thick as regular women's ankle socks (think Hanes) or thicker dress socks. They are not as thick as regular gym socks or the grippy socks that some places like Bar Method or Pop Physique or Pure Barre brand and sell in their studios. Pros: don't need to take off your socks to put on flip flops after! Score!
Grippiness - little black nubbins on toes and soles keep your feet in place during planks and downward dog. I've washed these several times and the grippy nubbins still work great.
Toe sock blues - know that when you're buying toe socks, the toe holes for the big toe are larger than the small toe. This means you have a "right" and "left" sock and have to remember to grab one of each from your sock drawer. The socks aren't labeled so you'll have to make sure you pick the right ones. Also, toes can pull out of the toe holes when you're doing extreme moves like planks or push ups. Not too big a deal and doesn't happen too often.
