Barefoot workouts are all the rage these days, but, let’s be honest, sometimes your feet need a little extra help with traction—or protection from dirty studio floors—when hitting up a yoga, Pilates, barre or martial arts class. So from preventing slipping to keeping your feet warm and germ-free, we’ve rounded up three of the coolest barefoot socks around! Which is kind of an oxymoron, but whatevs.
Puretoes are kind of like my secret yoga weapon: I throw them in my gym bag and then, no matter where I am, I can do yoga! Because they’re basically like having a yoga mat attached to your feet—without, you know, actually having a yoga mat stuck to your feet. That would be cumbersome. Light-weight and comfy (there’s plenty of room for my wonky toes to be wonky!), the non-skid soles provide just enough traction to help prevent slipping without interfering with performance. You get protection from dirty floors, and the fabric doesn’t irritate toes (at least not mine!). Available in fun prints and solids for the men, women and youth of the world (so, ahem, everyone), these go for $19.99.
