3 Ways Tucketts Supports Barre Lovers

Tucketts toe free socks are super unique in the grip sock industry because they offer freedom to the toes and some of the designs are specifically designed to support the arch of the foot. (For more details on our design, check out our blog post on Tucketts and Feet.) It’s no wonder that many of our customers love to wear our socks when they step up to the ballet bar. Our well-crafted features make Tucketts toe free socks an excellent addition to any Barre workout.

Participation in Barre classes has grown by almost 1 million people between 2013 and 2017. This surge in popularity can be attributed to a number of different factors. First, Barre exercises combine movements from many different workouts, but specifically dance. Second, the movements are small and precise, so they target small muscle groups to optimize muscle activation. Finally, barre exercises require little to no equipment, so they can be performed anywhere and by anyone!

Because of the close relationship between dance and barre workouts, the feet are an essential component in executing them to the fullest. In fact, one of the greatest benefits to practicing dance and barre exercises is an improvement in overall balance and flexibility, not to mention leaner muscles. Without proper foot placement, and a good deal of grip and support, finding this centering in the body would not be possible.

So, let’s look at three ways Tucketts toeless socks can help you with your Barre exercises.

Tucketts Grips so You Won’t Slip

The BPA-Free grippers on the bottom of our toe free socks are designed to hold you solidly in place with each step. This key feature is beyond important in barre exercises. In barre exercises like Arabesque, Rond de Jambe, and Arabesque Fly, the body needs a strong foundation starting with the feet. Our grips will prevent your supporting leg from slipping while your action leg works to the music.

Also, the toeless structure of our socks enables barre lovers to grip the ground with each toe. The freedom to open and spread your toes increases your support and guarantees better alignment in each standing exercise a barre class has to offer.

Tucketts Supports Your Arch

Barre exercises place a large emphasis on stretching and extending the foot through the arch. In exercises like Releve, Plie, and Passe, movers lift up through the feet and raise their heels from the floor. In these movements, having a solid arch support prevents the tendons and muscles located on the arch of the foot from pulling. This is where Tucketts can help.

As mentioned before, the weave of our Anklet and Knee High Tucketts hug and support around the arch and over the top of the foot. This compression keeps the fascia connected and prevents strain. In our taller socks, the design also includes strong ankle support. The ability to keep the ankle from folding and buckling during these types of barre exercises also prevents sprains and other injuries.

Tucketts Protects Your Feet

People often turn to exercises like those found in Barre to improve weak or painful feet. The impact of daily life, from shoes to regular movements, can weaken and restructure the tendons and bones in the feet. Exercises like those mentioned above in barre can help to change that and having strong material around the foot only makes the movement more effective.

Wearing Tucketts socks also helps protect the feet from sensitivity. This can eliminate injury from impact and prevent blisters that may form during different barre exercises.

Barre exercises put the feet front and center, and Tucketts toeless socks are the perfect addition to these movements!

What Customers are Saying

Great Socks for Pilates!

By ilaria on June 26, 2017

Style: Allegro - Solid Grey Dot

I noticed Tucketts on a colleague of mine, they looked great and I decided to try them. They are great!
Functional, fun and elegant! I’m a real believer of the importance of the barefoot connections. As a Pilates Instructor I know that as you workout on the mat and mostly on the apparatuses the balance, the stability and the feedback that the feet give to your body is key. Tucketts are the BEST workout socks because of the freedom that they give to the toes! I love them and my clients love them too.
I highly recommend them to anybody who practices disciplines like Pilates, Yoga, Silks, Gymnastics, Gyrotonic… anything that requires bare feet.

Wow!

Style: Anklet - Classic Black

I’ve been doing yoga for a long time, and have many different styles of yoga socks, but I just bought these and wow! I love how there is no restriction on my toes! Very comfy. I haven’t seen any other styles like these. I’ll probably order another pair in the near future!

Great for barre and working on Pilates equipment

Style: Anklet - Cosmic Essential Black

I'm a size 8 and these fit great. These have the best grips too. These are my second pair of Tuckettes and I wear them at least 3x a week in Barre and workouts on Pilates equipment. I have had these for about 3 months and they still look pretty new. Will be purchasing more.

I do a pilates based barre class and we do a lot of work that involves grip and stability and there is no other product that balances the need for me to have my feet covered yet still providing the grip of having no sock on. I love these the quality is second to none and I get so many compliments on them... I think this is going to be my go-to gift item for the holidays for my fitness loving friends
