I was recently contacted to help promote the newest sock styles from Kushyfoot. If you’ve never heard of this company, they specialize in making super comfortable socks and legwear, at a ridiculously affordable price. Think, the $9.99 ish range! Their legwear is “reflexology-inspired with a foot-massaging sole” and their product line ranges from knee-high socsk to athletic socks, and foot covers to tights. They’ve pretty much got their bases covered when it comes to footwear for us ladies, so I was excited when they graciously sent me four of their newest products to test out and share with my readers! A girl can never have too many socks, right? Especially a girl living in a house with a big dog who also likes socks. Not to name names or anything, but somehow my sock collection tends to dwindle rather quickly.
When I buy socks, which, I don’t do all that often, I typically buy them out of practicality first and foremost. Are they right for the activity I’m thinking about? Are they the right material and will they give me blisters? Will they fit in my shoe? Are they comfortable or too bulky? The socks that Kushyfoot sent me are all very practical, and seem well thought out and executed. Above practicality though, their quality felt fantastic! They sent me a pair of their athletic low cut socks, a pair of yoga socks, a sport foot cover, and a set of extreme low cut foot covers (perfect for ballet flats or heels!).
The timing for testing out their athletic socks could not have been more perfect as all of my laundry was dirty. Woohoo! The socks were super comfy, and had plenty of cushioning in the heel and ball of my foot. A huge plus when you take into account the pounding that your feet take when out on a run! There was also just enough compression in the midsole that they fit nice and snug. I wore them out on my 3.5 mile run last night, and was pretty impressed with them! I will probably wait to wear them again until later this fall and winter when the temperatures drop because they are a bit on the thicker side compared to most of my running socks. They also are cut just a little bit higher than I generally prefer, but, with all of that being said they were very comfortable, and did not cause any blisters or rubbing! And considering how affordable they are, they really are a great sock if you’re needing something basic! I will definitely be rocking these all fall and winter, both for my workouts and even in my favorite fall boots!
The foot covers have both a cushion and a heel guard in place to help prevent slipping, and for comfort in general. I think these would be perfect for ballet flats, or even heels where your heel might slip a bit! I tend to have a problem with my feet sliding around in heels, so these will definitely come in handy. They are “extreme low cut” as well to help prevent them from showing. But even if these do show, they are made of a cute lace fabric, so no worries there!
Now, the yoga socks. Who even knew that yoga socks existed? I sure didn’t. I’ve seen toe socks, Barre socks, and Janji’s, but never socks dedicated to yoga. Maybe I’m just behind! Needless to say, I was pumped to try these!
I think they are a genius idea though, and I would have loved to have worn these to hot yoga a few weeks ago! They have special grips on the bottom to help you stay firmly planted on your yoga mat, or yoga surface of choice. I imagine these being a life saver when I’m slipping and sliding around during hot yoga! Since your toes stick out, you can still keep your balance and grip firmly in tough poses. They may look silly, but sometimes you have to think practical over style, peeps!
These are also made for pedicures! WHAT! Pedi-socks?! Where have I been?! I think I may need to treat myself to a pedicure just to try them.
I tested them out on my yoga mat as well as our hard wood floors, and they are definitely “grippy!”
The only problem I had with them is that my toes are evidently shorter than the average person’s toes? The fabric kept slipping down past my toes, so I’m thinking they were a bit too big. Other than that though, I am sold on the yoga socks! I will be a happy, happy girl during my next yoga sesh!
Luckily, Truckee also approved.
Thanks Kushyfoot! I will definitely be recommending you for future sock purchases!

What do you look for most in a sock? Do you prefer socks or barefoot? Have you heard of Kushyfoot before? Do you own yoga socks or any “specialty socks?”
