For most women, the fact that athleisure apparel is not just becoming more widely accepted as fashion, but is also becoming fashionable, is a huge relief – and so much fun, too. As women, we really do run the world, from the house to the boardroom to schools and studios, which means we’re busier than ever. Mix in our desire to stay comfortable and practical, and day-to-day dressing used to be a nightmare. That is, until the brilliant invention of athleisure, those perfect wardrobe staples that allow you to literally get everything done without ever having those uncomfortable “I’m-so-sorry-I-just-came-from-the-gym” encounters, which leave you wondering why the universe always puts important people in your path when you’re sweaty and dressed in old sweatpants!

Athleisure is no longer just a trend. It’s a paradigm shift in the way women think. It’s liberating. It’s beautiful. And it’s super comfortable. But, until recently, there was one daily staple in the world of athleisure that had been sorely neglected: socks. Unattractive, uncomfortable, hot, and smelly, socks, in general, have been laundry outcasts for decades, and for good reason. Stockings, footwear’s saving feminine grace, are far from comfortable and belong nowhere near a gym or yoga studio. (Can you imagine downward dogging in footed tights?) Thankfully, athleisure wardrobes are finally getting a “soleful” upgrade, and it’s all because of SHASHI®, the maker of the “ultimate performance sock”.
Natalie Sudit, the founder of the up-and-coming footwear brand that is currently taking the athleisure world by storm, was, like most active women, hopelessly lost when it came to finding socks that checked all of the boxes: attractive, comfortable, cool, grippy. As an equal aficionado of Barre, Pilates, and style, Natalie’s frustration ultimately led her to create SHASHI®, every woman’s answer to the foundation of the athleisure look.
