If you're thinking of upping your yoga game, a pair of yoga shoes is a must for your workout wardrobe. As you progress into the more complex poses, these specially crafted shoes will help keep you stable, so you can concentrate on your form.
Reminiscent in their design of ballet slippers, yoga shoes are created to sit in line with the natural curve of your feet. They cling securely to your skin, allowing your feet to move naturally and freely. Customarily made with thin soles and flexible fabric, they're designed to give you some extra grip on your toes and heels. So from downward dog to tree pose, they will keep your feet firmly where they need to be, whether that's on the yoga mat or balanced against your thigh. Typical features include breathable fabrics that help keep your feet cool, padded arches to keep your feet protected and extra wide straps to keep your feet in place.
If you're channeling some yogi master styling, yoga shoes will ensure you look like you mean business. Bring your yoga outfit up to scratch with a great pair of yoga leggings. Choose yours in a lightweight fabric with a thick waistband for a comfortable fit. Finish the look with a yoga bra so you're supported all the way. A sports bra style sits in line with the recent retro sports look, but look to the latest strappy designs for a contemporary ballet style look. Don't forget to finish your ensemble with an exercise hoodie or zip up jacket, especially for those end of session relaxation routines, when you can get a little chilly. Namaste.
