Yoga can get intense—especially hot yoga—and it can become difficult to not slip on your mat while posing in all sorts of pretzel formations. Yoga socks are designed to help keep your feet stable, thanks to the little grips on the bottom, and help stop you from sliding across your mat, regardless of how sweaty you might become. Here are our favorites to help you achieve a more stable workout.
Purchasing Yoga Socks
What’s the most important part of making a good yoga sock purchase? There’s really only a few things to keep in mind, besides personal preference:
- Bottom Grips: Without these, your yoga socks are, well, just socks. Make sure they have bottom grips so that you stay stable.
- Style: There are various styles you can choose from, like knee-high, toeless, toe separators, or ballet. It comes down to the intensity of your workout and personal preference.
- Toe Separators: These are great for relieving pressure on your feet after being squeezed in shoes all day. They can even help correct foot issues like plantar fasciitis, bunions, and hammertoes.
- Toeless: If you don’t want your feet completely covered, spring for toeless socks.
- Comfort: You want socks made from soft and breathable materials to stay comfortable while working out.
