New Toe Sox & Shashi Socks

Grip socks provide a better workout for the legs and protect the bottom of the feet from getting rough. I have tried many different styles of foot wear for Barre classes and these styles are the most functional, best looking styles around. They can be used for Barre, Pilates, Yoga or Dance. Socks are $18 each plus tax. Check out the styles available only in Canada and place your order by March 15.

  • Five toe socks allow toes to align for increased balance
  • Patented non-slip sole provides superior grip on slick surfaces
  • Hygienic alternative to bare feet
  • Arch band provides gentle pressure to lift and support
  • Well defined heel cup prevents bunching and twisting

    We work the feet quite a bit in Barre Workouts and wanted to share some more exercises you can do at home or for those who can't attend class but would like to improve their foot health:If you feel any foot pain, it’s important to determine the cause and the proper foot care steps. Many times we take our feet for granted, but using proper foot care leads to good foot health which supports whole-body wellness.

    Foot Care Tips:
    1. With feet flat, lift and spread your toes. Repeat 10 times.
    2. Move your feet in the fight direction! Image courtesy of
    3. Now curl your toes under as though you were raking leaves with them. Repeat 10 times.
    4. Stand on a hard surface with your toes on the edge of a hand towel. Gather the towel under the arch of your foot with your toes.
    5. Lift your big toe, keeping the littlest toe down flat. Repeat 10 times.
    6. Reverse the previous exercise and lift your little toe, leaving the big toe down. Repeat 10 times.
    7. To stretch, sit on the edge of a chair with a firm seat. Bring your foot onto the opposite knee and pull all the toes down with your hand until you feel a gentle stretch. Then push the toes up.
    8. Stand or sit on the edge of a chair. Press into your toes, lifting the heel until you feel a stretch in the arch of the foot.
    9. Put the tops of your toes on the ground and gently press forward until you feel a stretch in the top of the foot.
