Pilates Products: Shashi Pilates Socks (Giveaway!)

I thought I’d seen it all when it came to Pilates sock innovations—grippy bottoms, separate toes, slippers. That’s why I wasn’t expecting much when a box of Shashi Socks hit my desk promising a “cool treat” for my feet. I tossed a pair into my bag and didn’t have a chance to wear them for several weeks. When I finally tried them out, I felt a little sheepish—they were really great and caught the eye of every instructor at the studio.

Shashi Socks creator Natalie Sudit had been doing Pilates for over 15 years but didn’t like practicing in regular socks, so she created her own. Yes, they’re grippy on the bottoms—nothing new there. But what’s unique about Shashi is the breathable mesh fabric that covers the top of the foot. It kept my feet from sweating and made the socks feel like they were barely there. I literally forgot I was wearing them. If you like to practice barefoot but want the sanitary protection of a sock, these are for you. They’re well suited for warmer climates or summer months when the thought of regular socks makes your brow glisten.

Split-Toe Shashi SocksShashi Socks come in white or black, with more colors promised soon. A split-toe version can be worn with flip-flops. Each pair costs $12.50, and Sudit also offers volume pricing for resale at studios.

Enter the Giveaway!
Natalie is offering five pairs of Sashi Socks as a giveaway to Pilates-Pro.com readers! To enter, sign up for our enewsletter or name one bone of the foot in the comments section or on our Facebook page. We’ll draw the winners in January.

I have a pair of Shashi and love exercising in them! They are fantastic. I can't wait to buy a pair in white.

As I live and train in the Czech Republic, I am sure it is impossible to get the Sashi Pilates Socks - but I love them at first sight. My colleague Pilates trainer has them and I know they are superb.
