Reebok True Studio Slipper Review

If you know me, you know that I spend a lot of time practicing yoga, whether at home or in the studio. That means a lot of yoga pants and tops. Why not add shoes to the mix?

Recently, I had the opportunity to test out a pair of Reebok True Studio Slippers – an ultra-lightweight shoe for studio classes like barre and yoga.

I have to admit that I was a little reluctant at first. They reminded me of the grippy socks you wear in barre classes. I wasn’t sure I liked the idea of wearing anything on my feet while practicing yoga. I like feeling the mat underfoot and when I practice, I often roll over my toes when transitioning between poses like upward-facing dog to downward facing dog. Would the slippers get in the way?

But I was curious. I hate slipping around on my mat when I practice yoga and these studio slippers are supposed to provide a barefoot feel with a little extra grip.

I’ve practiced in my Reebok studio slippers several times at home, and I was really surprised at how quickly I forgot that I was wearing anything on my feet. I was worried that the elastic top line would be tight or cut into my foot but it was comfortably snug and secure. The grip on the bottom of the slippers felt secure too and offered a good amount of traction. I didn’t feel like my feet were going to move around much on the mat.

What I liked:

  • Very comfortable and super lightweight
  • Snug on my feet but not confining or restricting
  • Grippy feel under the mat
  • Barefoot feel that made my foot feel grounded

What I didn’t like / would change:

  • The slippers run small. I ordered up a half size.
  • My feet did start to get warm but there’s Concona woven coconut fiber lining that helped to naturally cool the feet. It’s also supposed to provide odor resistance too.

Bottom line:

While I liked the Reebok True Studio Slippers, I’m not sure that I would wear them to a yoga class. I still prefer to practice barefoot. However, I would wear them for other studio classes like pilates or barre where it’s also helpful to have a little bit of grip and traction under the foot.

Have you tried slippers for studio classes?

    I’m such a barefooted that I doubt I would use these, but I do like the idea of having them for just a little warmth in the house, while still giving that barefoot feel! I’m sure this is NOT how Reebok intended them, though. You are the perfect person to test drive these.

    I have not seen these! I am a fan of bare feet all the way, too, but did try Shashi socks recently and they are cute but they DO slip around and drive me a little nuts. So I wear them sometimes but not very often, as a result. These look like they at least don’t slip OFF your feet. Maybe I shall try!

    I love the LOOK of them and would probably get a pair to just wear around the house in the summer :-) IF and WHEN I ever get back to my mat, I may have to look into getting a pair.

    Off subject but what is the plug-in you used for that awesome Tweet producer at the end of your blog? LOVE IT!

    What a good review! I would use them for a barre class for sure. I like the idea of not getting gym floor germs on my feet-I’m super weird that way, I have to wash my feet as soon as I get home, so I can see how these would be good that way.
