Tucketts is a women-run business with a love for sustainability and a passion for spreading the message about the foot-brain connection. They create high performance socks that are not only stylish, but are also functional and tailored with science in mind.
Tucketts patented non-slip, grip socks allow your toes to have complete sensory contact with the ground, which helps strengthen your foot muscles, in turn, preventing tendon overuse injuries. Allowing your toes the freedom to connect with the mat or machine also helps you get the most out of your workout! Tucketts are a great alternative to barefoot workouts (yoga, pilates, barre, martial arts, etc.) because they give the foot additional support.
Tucketts offers a wide range of vibrant designs, colors, and styles, including anklet, ballerina, knee high, and leg warmers, as well as closed toe socks, and men’s socks. Want a real treat? Add some lavender & magnesium Peace Feet Cream & Liquid Soak to your order!

More about the foot-brain connection:
The importance of healthy feet is often undervalued. In fact, the health of one’s feet is often neglected. Constrictive or ill-shaped shoe wear, like high heels, can lead to foot dysfunction. Agile feet can help to improve one’s balance, posture, gait, and movement. However, feet do not function independently of the body or brain. In fact, extensive research points to a definitive foot-brain connection, which is so dynamic that when activated, it allows us to move with calm, certainty, and security.
This foot-brain connection empowers us to move in space. Feeling our stability, we gain confidence for more unbounded action and movement patterns, without it our mobility becomes restricted and diminished. Maintaining foot health, and avoiding injuries from overuse are vital to fluid movement and optimal performance.
Exercises for feet to improve flexibility, mobility, and strength are important, while the most significant practice in achieving better foot health and ensuring the foot-brain connection is going barefoot, but we since we can’t always be barefoot, Tucketts are the next best thing!
Fun Fact: Did you know that your feet can recognize objects through touch using somatosensory perception and proprioception? This is called Haptic perception. Scientific evidence demonstrates a link between haptic perception and body movement.
