To Sock Or Not to Sock

To Sock Or Not to Sock

Open up almost any fitness magazine and you will see an ad for socks - dri-fit, compression, no-show, non-slip, etc. It seems there is a sock for almost every sport! In fact, more and more studios are beginning to require clients to wear non-slip socks during classes. What is this new sock trend all about? Here is the scoop on non-slip socks: First, wearing non-slip socks is for safety. Studios do not want clients to slip and fall during a Pilates or a Barre class. Once you start to sweat, your feet can slip on the floor or on the equipment. This could lead to big injuries. Traditional athletic socks can be very slippery on wood floors, gym floors, and Pilates equipment. Non-slip socks provide more grip and traction on slippery surfaces.

Another reason for wearing those non-slip socks is hygiene. Let's face it, our feet sweat. When you are in the middle of an intense barre, yoga, or Pilates class, you are sweating... that means your feet are sweating too! Think of how many places and things your feet have come in contact with during any given day! Less germs spread around means healthier - and happier- students!

So, embrace the sock revolution! With so many varieties out there, you can choose one that fits you perfectly. Some styles feature a sock-like fit, others cover each toe like a glove, some cover the foot but leave the toes open (think of the 80's fingerless gloves - but for your feet), and others even have a padding on the bottom of your foot for extra comfort during barre and dance classes. Pick out the style and the color you love best, put on your favorite Splits59 outfit, head out to class with a smile on your face, and put your best foot - or sock - forward!
