These no slip socks are a great slipper alternative. When I don’t have time to put on my leg braces, (quick trips to the bathroom or when letting my dogs out) I throw them on and feel secure I won’t slip and fall. I also use them for pilates class. The non-skid material doesn’t hurt my feet and they come to mid ankle. Bonus Tip : If your orthotics tend to move around in your shoes, stop them from moving by wearing non-slip socks like these.
