Yoga Socks

Your yoga practice is your time to do something beneficial for your body and mind. As you move through the poses and focus on your breathing, you can build flexibility, relieve stress and burn calories. If you want to get the most out of every yoga session, you need the right gear and apparel, and Walgreens has a selection of yoga socks and accessories from top brands like Gaiam to ensure that you're appropriately dressed right down to your toes.

What Are Yoga Socks?

Yoga socks are a type of footwear that is designed specifically for wear during yoga practice sessions. Typically, yoga socks are produced using fibers like spandex that are able to stretch and conform to the shape of the foot. This makes it easier to flex and point the feet when assuming poses. The bottoms of yoga socks are usually covered with raised stripes, dots or swirls that have a rubbery texture. These rubberized patterns produce friction, allowing the yoga socks to grip the yoga mat to reduce the risk of slipping.

Why Wear Yoga Socks?

Traditionally, yoga practices are done in bare feet, as shoes are usually too constricting and can interfere with full flexing and pointing. Still, many people who participate in yoga do not like the idea of exercising barefoot. Some find that they feel too cold when they do not wear any type of covering on their feet and that the discomfort distracts them from their yoga sessions. Others are concerned about hygiene and do not want to contract an infection from walking around without shoes and socks. This is particularly true of individuals who participate in yoga classes outside of their homes. Wearing socks can help to keep the feet warm and provide protection from germs; however, ordinary socks are not usually suitable for wear during yoga. They can be too slippery and limit one's ability to hold difficult poses as a result. Yoga socks are the perfect compromise. They cover the feet and are designed to improve one's grip against the mat, making them the safer option over ordinary socks.

Sizing Yoga Socks

Selecting the right size of yoga socks is important to ensuring a successful practice. Ill-fitting socks can reduce flexibility or pose a risk for tripping. The manufacturers of yoga socks offer styles in a variety of sizes. Typically, sizes correlate to men's and women's shoe sizes with yoga socks fitting a specific range of footwear sizes. Reading the product descriptions will help you determine which size is right for you.

Choosing the Best Style for Your Practice

There are many other features of yoga socks to consider beyond size when you're shopping for the perfect pair to wear during your practice. You'll need to decide whether you prefer to wear toe socks or toe-less socks. Some yoga socks come in multi-packs that contain more than one pair of socks. These multi-packs can be very handy if you practice yoga more than once per week and do not want to have to wash your socks frequently. The color of the yoga socks can also be taken into consideration as you shop.
