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. But for ladies that don’t like the idea of going barefoot, the Nike Studio Wrap is a functional and minimalistic alternative.

The Nike Studio Wrap acts to hygienically cover the feet, and is said to offer a better-than-barefoot experience in a three-part footwear system (wrap, ribbon and flat). The Nike Studio Wrap was designed to give women an elevated workout in the studio.

There’s no dirty, sweaty or slippery feet and no bunched up socks. The ribbons wrap around the ankles similar to the pointe shoes that a ballerina wears. Get a studio workout done without worrying about what germs may be clinging to your feet or slipping off the mat. When you’re done, just wrap them up and throw them into the mesh carrying case.

The Nike Studio Wrap will be available from Spring 2013.
