What is Pilates?

Pilates is a type of exercise that emphasizes proper posture, alignment, and movement. It is often done on a mat but can also be done with specialized equipment.

The whole scenario may sound daunting, especially if you aren't used to exercising, but Pilates is actually a very gentle and effective form of exercise. And because it is considered a low-impact form of exercise, it is ideal for people of all ages and fitness levels.

Benefits of a Pilates Workout

Regularly practicing Pilates brings many benefits. For example, they can help to strengthen your core muscles and improve your flexibility. Additionally, they can help to increase your endurance and stamina.

Other benefits include:

  • Improved circulation
  • Increased muscle tone
  • Improved joint mobility
  • Reduced stress levels
  • Improved posture and alignment

As you can see, there are many benefits to working out with Pilates. However, to get the most out of your workout, it is essential to wear the right socks.

Best Type of Socks for Pilates

There are many different types of socks on the market, so it can be difficult to know which ones are the best for Pilates. However, here are a few things to look for when choosing socks for your Pilates workout.

Compression socks

Compression socks are perfect for working out and provide support for your muscles and joints and can help to improve your circulation. Other benefits of compression socks while working out include less swelling in your feet and ankles. In short, they can bring a lot to your Pilates game.

Performance Compression Socks made by TRUEENERGY® are a great option. They are made with innovative technology and special materials that help to increase blood flow, improve circulation and reduce swelling.


If you have flat feet or high arches, it is important to find socks that support them during Pilates. And doing so will help reduce pain and fatigue in your feet and legs.

TRUEENERGY® Low Cut Performance Ankle Socks feature arch band compression and support to help you stay comfortable, letting your focus remain where it needs to be—on your workout. Additionally, the arch band on the low cuts keeps them comfortably in place.


Have you ever been working out with thin socks and experienced sore feet? Ouch! For a good Pilates session and to avoid that misery, you'll want to choose socks with proper cushioning. This measure will help protect your feet and joints from the impact of the exercises and keep you from forming blisters.

TRUEENERGY® has designed socks with the cushioning you need for activities like Pilates, yoga and running. We also make infrared technology Athletic Ultra Light Liner Socks that are perfect for when you want the comfort and performance of a sock, without cushioning that you can wear for everyday use.

Infrared Energy

Having a little infrared energy in the socks you use for Pilates never hurt anything. In fact, these unique socks can help increase blood flow and improve circulation, elevating your performance. Additionally, they can help to reduce swelling and pain in your feet and ankles.

TRUEENERGY® socks are made with infrared-infused yarns that are activated by your body's natural heat, helping improve blood flow and circulation.

Moisture Wicking 

No one wants the distraction of swamp feet while trying to get a good pilates workout in. To best avoid it, choose socks that are made from moisture-wicking fabric.

All TRUEENERGY® socks boast a specialty blended fabric with moisture-controlling properties, natural breathability and softness. Additionally, they feature mesh venting for improved airflow and anti-microbial properties. This will help to keep your feet dry and comfortable during your workout.


You'll also want your Pilates socks to have a high enough back to prevent the sock from slipping while cushioning your heel and preventing blisters. Again, TRUEENERGY® has you covered with our Hi-Vis Cushion Low-Cuts. They have a backing that hits the Goldilock's spot—meaning they're not too high and not too short. In a nutshell, they provide just the right amount of cushioning and support while you work out.

Now that you know what to look for in a pair of socks let's discuss how to choose the right size.


It is important to choose socks that fit well for Pilates—or any exercise really. Socks that are too tight can constrict your movement and cause pain.

On the other hand, socks that are too loose can cause blisters and chafe. So when trying on socks, pay attention to the way they feel on your feet. You should also check the size chart to find the right sock size for you.

TRUEENERGY® socks for men and women come in a variety of sizes, so you're sure to find the perfect fit.


When it comes to color, there are no hard and fast rules. However, you may want to choose a color that complements your workout clothes. TRUEENERGY® socks come in a wide variety of colors, so you're sure to find the perfect pair.

For instance, you can get men's athletic infrared low-cut performance socks in black, white or gray. Or, if you're looking for something a little more fun, try our women's no-show socks—they come in 8 pairs to a package and feature an assortment of trendy animal prints and solid colors.

No matter the color, all TRUEENERGY® socks use NASA-inspired technology to help promote circulation and cellular regeneration while giving soothing pain relief.

The Takeaways

Pilates is a great workout for people of all ages and levels of experience. Meanwhile, if you want to get the most out of your workout, it is important to choose the right socks.

The best socks for Pilates are supportive, cushioned and moisture-wicking. Additionally, they should have a high enough back and a grip on the bottom if you are going to use Pilates equipment.
