Why do Your Feet still Slip Even Wearing Custom Yoga Socks?

As the main tool to help yoga practitioners reduce the probability of slipping in the process of exercising, custom yoga socks become an indispensable part of yoga practitioners' life. However, we can often hear people complain, "this pair of yoga sock looks very beautiful, but after putting it on, the feet slide immediately. It's not anti-skid at all. " Some people say, "the socks are anti-skid to the ground, but not to the soles of the feet. So it's not skid resistant as a whole." It's very important to find anti slip socks for yoga. Now let's talk about the influencing factors of skid resistance. After buyers understand these reasons, they can easily choose the ideal custom yoga socks according to their own needs.

Skid resistance is divided into two aspects: one is between the custom yoga socks and the ground, the other is between the sole of the foot and the custom yoga socks.

1. The skid resistance between the custom yoga socks and the ground

There are PVC particles and silicone particles commonly on the market. In general, silicone is better, but the cost is also higher. Moreover, the material itself has its own good and bad points. PVC also have good and bad grades, so does silicone. In addition, the fullness and shape of particles, the distribution and area of particle area will also affect the anti-skid effect. Some custom Yoga socks only have particles on part of the sole area, some on the whole sole. Theoretically speaking, particles on the whole sole will be better for skid resistance.

2. The skid resistance between soles and custom yoga socks. 

At this point, there are three small factors that can affect the skid resistance between soles and socks.

(1) The material and knitting of custom yoga socks. If the knitting or the elastic fiber is sparse, the quality of the elastic fiber is poor, or the elastic fiber is not added at all, any of these factors will affect the fitting degree of socks and feet, thus affecting the anti-skid effect. There are some yoga socks in the market added elastic fiber in the middle of the arch, forming an elastic zone. But the more advanced method is to add elastic fiber to the whole body of socks to make them fit the feet well and increase the friction between socks and soles to the greatest extent.

(2)The style of custom yoga socks will also affect the anti-skid performance. The style here mainly refers to the structural design:

  • Open-back and non open-back style. Physical structure characteristics determine that some forms will inevitably weaken the fit and friction of custom yoga socks, such as open-back style, which is the price of pursuing beauty. The anti-skid effect of open-back style may be worse than that of non open-back style, especially in the exercise with high frequency or large amplitude.

  • Split-toe and non split-toe style. There are many people who are not used to split-toe socks and use non split-toe socks instead. The anti-skid effect of non split-toe socks is generally worse than that of split-toe effect. If you care about skid resistance most, try to get used to split-toe socks. We can offer cozy toes socks for you to find a brand new experience.

(3) There are also a few styles on the market, which use different ways to improve the friction between the soles of the feet and socks: silicone is also used in the inside of the socks, so as to increase the skid resistance between the soles of the feet and the bottom of socks.
