Why do my feet slip when wearing yoga socks?

Some yogis like to wear socks to do yoga movements. Some wear ordinary socks and some wear professional yoga socks. If you want to wear it, it is recommended to wear yoga socks, because the bottom of the socks will be treated with anti-slip.

First look at the anti-skid between the socks and the ground:

PVC dispensing and silica gel dispensing are common on Non-Slip Yoga Socks manufacturers the market. Generally speaking, silica gel is better, but the cost is also high.

1. The material itself has advantages and disadvantages. The same is PVC, there are also good and bad grades. Silica gel also has advantages and disadvantages.

2. The fullness of the glue, the shape of the glue point, the distribution position and size of the glue area will also affect the anti-skid effect. Some styles only dispense glue on a part of the sole of the foot, and some dispense glue on the entire sole. In theory, the entire glue will be more slip resistant.https://www.ylsocks.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/9-1.jpg

Let's look at the anti-slip between the sole of the foot and the socks:

1. The material and knitting of the socks. If the knitting is sparse, the elastic fiber is sparse, the quality of the elastic fiber is poor, or the elastic fiber is not added at all, any one of these factors will affect the degree of fit between the socks and the feet, thereby affecting the anti-slip effect. There are some socks on the market that add elastic fibers in the middle of the arch to form an elastic zone. However, a more advanced method is to add elastic fibers to the body of the socks to make the socks fit the feet well and maximize the friction between the socks and the soles of the feet.

2. The style of socks will also affect the anti-slip performance. The style here mainly refers to the structural design:

(1) Backless and non-backless. The physical structure characteristics determine that certain forms will inevitably weaken the fit and friction of the socks, such as the open back. Let's assume that this is the price paid for the pursuit of beauty. The anti-skid effect of the halter may be lower than that of the non-back, especially in high-frequency or large amplitude movements.

(2) Separate toes and no toes. Many people are really not used to split-toe socks, and instead use split-toe socks. The anti-slip effect of non-split toe is generally lower than that of split toe. If you are most concerned about non-slip, then try to get used to split-toe socks.

3. There are very few styles on the market that use different ideas to improve the friction between the soles of the feet and the socks: silicone is also used inside the socks to increase the slip resistance of the feet and socks.
