Besides the obvious – THEY KEEP YOUR FEET WARM – yoga toe socks are very good for your feet. More specifically the ones with the awkward little individual toes and the sticky bumps on the bottom. This type of sock gives each toes their space and helps to correct all of those years of crushing the little toes into tight shoes and high heels.
It takes a while to put them on. And I know, they feel a bit uncomfortable at first. However, doing yoga in toe socks can help to alleviate a variety of foot problems –
- joint pain
- foot cramps
- athletes foot
- tired feet after long walks or shopping in the sales
For obvious reasons we need to have a good grip on the sole of the yoga sock – to stop us from slipping on our yoga mats! However, there’s an added bonus to using the socks in yoga postures because the toes are forced to spread out and this gives us more surface area to balance on.
So have a thought…TOE SOCKS… great idea and not just for yoga.
A wide variety of toe socks can be found on the Yogamatters website.
Or you can buy Toe Socks from me in class – they are £5 a pair and come in a range of colours. Have a look at my shop window here to see the socks and other items I can get for my students…
