The difference between regular socks and toeless ones is that they are specifically to benefit the yogi’s form and comfort. The separation of the toes they provide allows your toes to separate more easily to achieve “yoga toes.” They are lightweight and easy to fit into a small bag and carry to class so storage is easy.
They are also a great barrier between your feet and bacteria on floors and yoga mats if you are concerned with sharing yoga mats because of the risk of fungal infections that can spread from one persons feet to another. Toeless ankle socks can reduce your risk to foot fungi because your feet are not exposed.
Another bonus is the nonslip sole can help with posture and form for poses such as the warrior pose and downward facing dog for a maximum stretch.
Don’t worry about clashing with an outfit because toeless ankle yoga socks come in many cute designs as well as solid colors to match any workout outfit.
There are often different sizes to choose from so do not worry if you have particularly large or small feet there is sure to be a size that is right for you.
