Grip socks have exploded in popularity in recent years, as they allow users to push their limits while still minimizing the risk of slips and falls on smooth surfaces. The specialized socks typically feature non-slip silicone grips on the sole, and can be customized to reflect a user’s style or specific workout needs.
The specialized socks can also be used on trampoline, where the grip design is optimized for trampoline use (typically in the form of dots or lines). They are often made from a breathable and moisture-wicking material such as cotton, polyester, bamboo/spandex, spandex, and elastane.
Unlike the socks sold at the counter at Pilates, barre, or yoga studios, where a mark-up is added, custom grip socks are available online and can be designed to suit any exercise or gym environment. A shopper can even have their own logo or slogan knitted into the sock.
Shape’s testers wore grip socks during a variety of classes at local studios, and each pair was tested for breathability, durability, fit, comfort, and grip strength. We also compared the socks with regular ones in similar styles and materials, to see how well they worked when doing common exercises like a low Pilates lunge or full-thigh stand on the ballet bar. The results: All of the grip socks we tested passed our strict testing standards, and each pair was a good option for its intended use. custom grip socks wholesale
