A number of clients have asked me where they can buy Pilates socks. With their special rubberised grip soles, Pilates socks are useful when exercising on cold, slippy wooden studio floors. Here are a few recommendations…
Cheap and cheerful
At £2.89 including postage, Fitness Basics offer a good budget pair of Pilates/Yoga socks. They are available in a range of colours and in both the five-toe (as shown above) and regular sock design.
Good brand, mid-range price
The Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute (APPI) socks are specially designed for Pilates and have the benefit of a seamless toe and a unique reflexology point non-slip sole. A well-designed sock requiring a bit more of an investment than the budget pair – £7.99 plus £2.95 for postage and packaging.
High Street Brand with a price to match
Specially designed for Pilates with a nifty over-foot elastic to keep it in place throughout the class, Sweaty Betty‘s Pilates socks cost £12. Available in a range of colours, they are currently on offer – two pairs for £20. Home delivery is of course extra (£4) or free if you visit their Bristol shop at 59 Queen’s Road, BS8 1QL.
