While I loved the look & feel of the Blake Brody studio shoes my hesitation was two-fold:
My answers were NO and NO.
I should know myself better than to think I would care what other people thought (*cough* misfit *cough*). I brought the shoes. I slipped em on. No one said a word (till after class when a few women asked where Id gotten them).
I also found they did NOT inhibit my ability to feel as though yoga was grounding me. I didnt feel the sense of having ‘shoes on’ and more than anything wasnt distracted by the studio shoes either.**
I adored them.
What didn’t I love?
My first inclination was to say the price ( they arent cheap ) yet the fact Ive perused the online boutique over and over and DROOLED is an indication —at least for me—-they’re not too overpriced.
Are they necessary?
Heck no. That said, Im all in for anything which helps me look forward to yoga in a way I dont normally. Some of you may not need props and prod’ings—-I do. Im not there yet.
Would I recommend them?
I really would. They’d make a fantastic gift —-to a woman in your life or
**I havent done hot yoga in the studio shoes yet. Im a sweater. I wonder if I shall drown my poor lovely heart topped shoes during the 90 minutes of poses? Ill keep you posted. The shoes are treated with anti-microbial & anti-odor so there’s that BIG saving grace…
