My new pair of Blake Brody In-Studio Footwear!

Lucky me, I got a pair in the mail earlier this week. I am a yoga gal myself, so I gave them a whirl yesterday during a home practice. These little babies are very grippy and do nicely in a pinch if you just do not feel like rolling out your mat. Also, I think they will be a welcome addition to my gym bag for the moments I wander into a new studio and find the floors are less than clean. The one draw back I noticed is that it is a bit difficult to lift and separate your toes when they are completely covered, a common move in yoga. Although I was not able to fully lift and separate my toes, my balance was not affected. I may test drive them in a Pilates class, the style and design of the shoe is perfect for pointing the toes.

Be aware they do run a bit small, you may want to go up a half size when purchasing a pair. I wear a size 9 shoe, but picked up a 9 1/2.

Head out to the truck show this evening from 4:30 - 8:30 p.m. for 25% off all styles.
