The designers of California-based footwear line ToeSox know a thing or two about working out in style. Not only that, but working out with the utmost care for your feet and personal well-being. The health-conscious brand makes socks, leg warmers, sandals, and gloves for keeping you in the zone while running, practicing yoga, or just going about your day. We dug into the brand’s history to share more about how the unique design came to be and look at how the owner’s daily life inspired the products.
Created in 2004, ToeSox was founded by Joe P., who had an epiphany when leaving yoga class. Tired of cold feet and slipping soles, he thought socks with grip could prevent slipping during yoga, Pilates, barre, and dance class while still maintaining the integrity of bare feet. As for the five-toe design, he stresses that wiggling and spreading your toes helps strengthen the feet, increase blood circulation, and align mistreated toes. Not to mention, you can avoid blisters by eliminating moisture and friction between your toes.
As the company grew, so did the product line, all in the name of supporting natural movement while flashing your style in bright colors. The knee-high socks and leg warmers are stylish, cute, and oh-so-comfortable. Brighten up any look with these babes tucked under tall riding boots or structured oxfords. The casual collection is the ultimate fusion of function and fashion.
You’ll quickly fall in love with the super soft organic cotton feel, no matter how you decide to style them. New Year’s resolutions to work out more just got a little bit easier. We’re ready to break out the yoga mats now.
