I love to walk in my bare feet indoors. Outdoors not so much, for obvious reasons. But when I’m home working, relaxing, working out, or doing whatever it is I do in my home, the tootsies are always the happiest when they’re not forced into sock, slippers or shoes. My go-to choice when I lived in a warm climate was flip flops.
Realistically, though, since I have moved to the Midwest in winter, the feet are almost always encased in the aforementioned entrapments that keep them warm, but not necessarily feeling loved.

So when I was given the opportunity to try Tucketts – Freedom for Toes as an option for a barefoot workout, I was thrilled. I had never heard of this brand or product, so was curious as to how they would look and feel.
You may remember that I’m dedicated to a morning dance workout with Body Groove, and as such I whirl and twirl my way around the living area, which is carpeted, and the dining/kitchen/hallway, which is a wood-like laminate flooring. That floor can get a bit slippery at times.
This is my experience using Tucketts. It’s my honest opinion, and although I did receive a pair for free, I received no additional compensation for my opinions.
The first thing I did, of course, was to try them on when the package arrived. The best way to describe these little cuties is they are like mittens for your feet, with a lot more support and function. 🙂
There is a right (red R) and a left (red L) as indicated on the sock. I know…my feet are crossed so they’re on the opposite side.
The big toe has it’s own place, and the rest of the tootsies share a space. The elastic on the sock holds it in place, but not so tight that it feels constricting. As an added benefit, the open toe design helps me keep my balance. That’s a big plus for me, as I was not born with the graceful gene.
The bottom of the sock has grippers that work very well. I noticed it immediately as I danced my way across the laminate floor. No slippage at all.
As I wore my Tucketts more, they continued to provide a comfortable, secure method for me to protect my feet and prevent slippage. They are the perfect way to complete your Pilates, barre, yoga, martial arts or any other barefoot fitness activity you enjoy.

Hi Candi what a great idea. I have seen these type of non resistant socks in hospitals for patients but this is a different way to use them. It can be so easy to slip even on a yoga mat and wearing these would give you peace of mind. 🙂
Yes, Sue, these socks are wonderful. I’ve been wearing them for about a week now during my barefoot workouts and they do a great job of keeping my feet from slipping. If I don’t wear them now it seems like something is missing. 🙂
I’m always bothered by cold feet when I am doing yoga! And I also do not like wearing shoes during workouts….these could really work for me! Thanks for the tip!!!
I love these, Lisa, give them a try and see what you think!
