Grip Sock FAQs
WHAT ARE GRIP SOCKS USED FOR?
Grip socks are a versatile fitness companion that are used in a variety of activities and in everyday life. The best-known use for them is in studio fitness classes like Pilates, yoga, and barre, where hygiene is a priority but regular socks would just slip and slide. They are also commonly used in hospitals, physical therapy spaces, or any place where the surfaces are smooth and you need a little extra grip.
WHY WEAR GRIP SOCKS?
Many Pilates, yoga, or barre studios require grip socks for hygienic reasons. Grip socks enhance your grip, balance, and stability, helping you to make the most out of your workout. Grip socks can also offer you a little extra support in your day-to-day, aiding you on all kinds of slippery surfaces like tile, hardwood, vinyl, and laminate.
