Most yogis practice in bare feet. This allows an awareness and connection to the ground. However, there are some people that could benefit from wearing shoes during their practice. Buy I am not talking any old athletic shoe. Those would be too clunky and cumbersome for yoga. I am talking about Leguano barefoot shoes. These lightweight, flexible minimalist shoes are ideal for yoga.
Let’s look at why you could benefit from wearing these shoes to your next class.
- Protect your feet from possible fungus and infections
This is a real scenario if you show up to class without your own mat. Using a mat provided by the studio has a danger of carrying icky skin viruses left by others. I wonder how often those mats are cleaned? The solution is to slip on a pair of Leguano shoes which allow you to still feel like you are barefoot. The flexible sole and expandable upper still let you to spread your toes and feel the ground but protect you from any nasty surprises.
- If you sweat a lot
If you find yourself slipping all over your yoga mat, then throw on a pair of Leguanos. The anti-slip sole will keep you in place in your downward dog. The upper material will allow your sweaty feet to breathe. The snug fit will keep you safe and secure in all your moves.
- If you get cold feet and toes
Leguano barefoot shoes can keep the heat in if you suffer from cold feet. Who wants to do yoga when you can’t feel your toes?!
- If you are embarrassed of your feet
Ugly hammer toe keeping you from attending a yoga class? Leguano shoes will keep your secret but still allow the small muscles to engage for perception and balance.
- Outdoor yoga
If you are taking your practice to the park, wearing Leguano shoes makes sense. You will still feel the ground beneath your feet, but the thin sole will protect you from any sharp objects such as twigs and stones.
Leguano barefoot shoes are so flexible that you can roll them up and keep them in your gym bag. They are anti-bacterial and odor resistant but when they do need a wash, just throw them in the washing machine and then air dry. They are quick drying, so they’ll be ready for your next class. Namaste!
