best socks for stick mobility

Are you looking for the perfect socks to help you power through your next Stick Mobility session?

Look no further than hipSwan.

Our socks are designed to enhance your Stick Mobility routine, providing superior comfort, support and grip as you exercise.

Look for these 5 Key Features in a Superior Stick Mobility Sock

  1. Pure silicone grips - in addition to being more eco-friendly than the PVC alternative, silicone grips have superior tackiness.
  2. Generous cushioning - since Stick Mobility is generally performed without shoes, a generously cushioned sock will be more comfortable.
  3. Organic combed cotton yarn - choose socks with a natural yarn like cotton over socks that mix in a large % of polyester. The best eco-friendly socks will use GOTS certified yarns and a high needle count (168N+).
  4. Interior heel grips - borrowed from a key feature in no-show socks, the best Stick Mobility socks feature an internal heel grip to help the socks stay put when doing stretches on the floor or mat.
  5. Compression arch band - a compression arch band promotes circulation and support, giving an overall feeling of coziness during the activity.

What is Stick Mobility?

Stick Mobility is a unique fitness modality that integrates joint mobilisation, strength training, and functional stretching using a flexible stick.

This training system aims to enhance mobility, stability, and overall body strength, benefiting athletes, fitness enthusiasts, and individuals seeking improved movement quality.

The main goal of Stick Mobility is to enhance overall physical performance and well-being by improving flexibility, mobility, strength, balance, and coordination.

By using a flexible stick, Stick Mobility exercises target joint range of motion, muscle stabilisation, and body alignment, helping individuals move more efficiently and effectively.

What Exercises do you do During Stick Mobility?

During Stick Mobility sessions, participants perform core exercises such as:
  • shoulder dislocates for shoulder mobility
  • overhead squats for full-body strength
  • hamstring stretches to promote flexibility and reduce muscle tightness
  • thoracic spine rotations to enhance core strength
  • lateral lunges and hip flexor stretches to improve balance and flexibility

Additional exercises include kneeling thoracic stretches, ankle mobility drills, single-leg deadlifts for strength and balance, and the cat-cow stretch for spinal flexibility. These exercises collectively enhance flexibility, strength, and overall physical performance.

Stick Mobility vs. Pilates

Stick Mobility focuses on enhancing flexibility, mobility, and strength using a flexible stick as a tool. It involves exercises that improve joint range of motion, muscle strength, balance, and coordination.

The main difference between Stick Mobility and Pilates lies in focus and equipment.

Stick Mobility emphasises enhancing flexibility, mobility, and strength using a flexible stick, targeting joint range of motion and muscle stabilization. In contrast, Pilates focuses on core strength, flexibility, and overall body conditioning through precise movements, often using specialised equipment like the Reformer.

In summary, Stick Mobility is centred around joint mobility and muscle stabilisation using a stick, while Pilates focuses on core strength and overall body conditioning using mats and specialised equipment.

Great grip
Purchased these for Stick Mobility class when we are often on the gym floor & bare feet / regular socks just won't do the job. These are perfect! Great grip & fit.”

No more slips!
What a difference these socks have made. No more slipping during my pilates classes. Just recommended to a friend who has ordered three pairs.
- Dorothy L.

I love these comfy socks!
The grip is fab, they also have grippy bits inside the heels so they don't slip off while doing Pilates/Yoga exercises like downward facing dog.

How to Choose the Right Size

Feet come in all shapes and sizes :) Luckily, the inherent elasticity of socks allow them to feel comfortable in a wide range of feet.

Better brands will go further by offering different sizes, which are generally defined by the sock length in centimetres.

Choosing the right size of sock for Stick Mobility can be a tricky business. Here are a few key factors to consider when selecting the right size:

  1. Measure your feet: First, you should measure your feet in order to determine the size that fits your needs best. To do this, simply stand on a ruler and measure the length of your foot from the heel to the longest toe. Knowing the size of your foot will make choosing the right size of sock much easier, as the length is the only objective measure. Tables that map length measurements onto shoe sizes are not standardised.

  2. Consider the thickness: hipSwan socks are more generously cushioned to provide better comfort compared to other brands and since they are generally worn without shoes. Keep this in mind if your personal preference is for a thinner sock.

  3. Read the sizing guide: Once you know your feet size and which thickness you’d like, it’s time to check out hipSwan’s sizing guide. The guide provides a range of different sizes that correspond to your foot size, but it's only a guide.

    If you're new to hipSwan, it's best to purchase a single pair first in order to confirm your size. If you're at the margin, it's generally better to size down as you'd probably desire a more snug fit for an activity like Stick Mobility.

Choosing the right size of sock for Stick Mobility doesn’t have to be hard when you know how. With these tips, you’ll be able to select the perfect pair of hipSwan socks for a comfortable and supportive workout every time.
