Toeless Yoga Ankles Socks:
When looking to improve the experience of your yoga practice toeless ankle socks can be a great additive to help improve form and comfort. These socks encompass your feet and ankle but have holes for your toes to poke through so that your toes are free for grip and balance.
What are the Benefits?
The difference between regular socks and toeless ones is that they are specifically to benefit the yogi’s form and comfort. The separation of the toes they provide allows your toes to separate more easily to achieve “yoga toes.” They are lightweight and easy to fit into a small bag and carry to class so storage is easy.
They are also a great barrier between your feet and bacteria on floors and yoga mats if you are concerned with sharing yoga mats because of the risk of fungal infections that can spread from one person’s feet to another. Toeless ankle socks can reduce your risk to foot fungi because your feet are not exposed.
Another bonus is the non-slip sole can help with posture and form for poses such as the warrior pose and downward facing dog for a maximum stretch.
Don’t worry about clashing with an outfit because toeless ankle yoga socks come in many cute designs as well as solid colors to match any workout outfit.
The Different Kinds of Toeless Ankle Socks
There are crochet toeless ankle socks that have the added benefit of comfort and are very warm compared to other materials. However, socks made with this material do not give separation for your toes and do not offer quick dry so this is not ideal if you tend to sweat more. Additionally, crochet toeless yoga ankles socks do not have a grip on the sole so it is easy to slide around since the support is not provided.
Toeless Yoga socks that are of cotton or polyester materials often have a non-slip design on the bottom for comfort and control. The very form fitting and whisks sweat away so feet stay dry, this can be especially important during hot yoga practices.
