We know … you don’t need shoes to do yoga. Still, some practitioners aren’t comfortable going barefoot at certain studios, and some studios are even requiring footwear, says Michelle Erbs, senior marketing manager for Ahnu®, which will debut its women’s on-the-mat yoga studio shoe, dubbed In-StudiOm, this summer (they're planning a men's version down the line, but it's not yet in development). The super-comfy, slip-resistant shoe (it feels more like a slipper) is ultra-light, breathable, and anti-microbial, plus machine washable and made using vegan materials. Available July 15th at Ahnu.com ($49.95), as well as at select retail stores and yoga studios across the U.S.
