Natalie Lerch Sudit loved practising Pilates and Barre to keep fit but couldn’t find the right footwear for her workouts. The options available left her feet feeling hot and sweaty, or didn’t offer enough grip. Equally important was style – they needed to look great in and out of the studio. So Natalie went to the drawing boards and designed her own solution, creating Shashi Cool Feet Socks. Her design is now patented and the innovative socks have earned fans across the globe.
Fabrics and designs
Shashi socks are designed with performance in mind. Mesh inserts or cutouts offer excellent ventilation, keeping your feet much cooler than a traditional sock while still delivering coverage and protection from equipment and flooring. They’re crafted in a Coolmax moisture-wicking fabric that helps feet stay dry and comfortable. On the sole, plenty of large grips give you excellent traction and stability on all types of studio flooring – perfect for executing that demi plié. And just like your feet, Shashi socks have a contoured left and right foot shape so that you don’t end up with uncomfortable bunching and excess fabric around your little toes.
Shashi Cool Feet Socks come in three sizes – small for shoe sizes 5.5 to 7.5, medium for 8.5 to 10 and large for 10.5 to 12.5. If you’re in between sizes or unsure, we’d recommend sizing down for a better fit as Sashi’s socks do run large.
How we wear our Shashi favourites
While they’re prefect in the studio for workouts, we also love wearing Shashi socks around the house too. They give us a bit of extra grip which is great for hardwood and ceramic floors. Shashi socks transition easily outside too. We’ll slip them into a pair of ballet flats or Mary Janes and head out the door without fuss.
Why buy Shashi?
Barre and Pilates routines won’t feel the same once you’ve tried a class in Shashi socks! The grip and traction can really add that extra edge you need to hold challenging poses and movements, so you can concentrate on getting the very best workout.
