The innovative Nike Studio Wrap Pack was designed to help you make the most of workouts typically done in bare feet, like yoga, dance and barre. The three-part footwear system consists of a wrap, a ribbon and a flat shoe. It combines a barefoot feel with protection, traction, support and style.

With the rise of studio-type workouts from yoga and pilates to the ballet-inspired barre, women are getting fit in their bare feet more than ever. It’s great that women get to use their feet to bend, flex, squat, rotate, push and pull, but bare feet have some limits. First, uncovered feet are not always allowed in gyms and studios for hygienic purposes. Also, the bare foot can sometimes slip right in the midst of the most Zen moments. Socks slip too, and while socks with sticky grip on the bottom seem like the obvious solution, they can also scrunch up, move around and aren’t always the most flattering to walk around in. This is exactly why Nike created something they’ve never done before.

Nike’s Ballet-Inspired Flats Help Prevent Slipping During Yoga

It helps prevent slipping, offers hygiene protection and provides customizable support and durability. There is also a silicone traction pattern on the studio wrap for good grip on indoor surfaces.

The pack includes a mesh garment bag and washing instructions for long-lasting wear and it is packaged in a drawer-like box for convenient storage. Check out the Nike Studio Wrap in the video below:
