It is wonderful to be barefoot during a Pilates session, but many people prefer to have something on their feet. Whether it is for warmth, cleanliness, comfort or to avoid slipping, there are many options available these days for covering the feet.
One of the options in our industry is called TheShu. TheShu is a lightweight and comfortable slipper-like foot covering that is made in the Philippines. It is geared toward indoor sports to help with performance while maintaining a barefoot feeling. Their Athletic design, made of Lycra® or other similar fabrics, has a skid resistant sole. They also have an eco-friendly option, which uses Bamboo or Cotton and Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) for the non skid sole.
There are two styles, Athletic or Ballet. The Athletic is higher cut with a tapered sole, while the Ballet style has a lower neck and full-cut sole. For those who like more than basic black, both styles come in a fun, designer line featuring several different designs and colors.
TheShu is priced from $26 to $36. They are certainly worth a try if you are looking for something to cover your feet during Pilates or Yoga. Definitely check out the many options www.anabelfitness.com.
