Nike Studio Wrap Review: Nike Yoga Shoes (Nike Bar Method and Nike Ballet Shoes)

1
00:00:00,000 –> 00:00:02,190
hi I’m Brett Larkin today we’re

2
00:00:02,190 –> 00:00:06,830
reviewing the Nike studio rap yo ratio

3
00:00:07,760 –> 00:00:10,050
for those of you that don’t do yoga with

4
00:00:10,050 –> 00:00:12,420
me online I’m a yoga teacher but I also

5
00:00:12,420 –> 00:00:14,820
am obsessed with the bar method so I’m

6
00:00:14,820 –> 00:00:16,320
reviewing these shoes from the

7
00:00:16,320 –> 00:00:18,330
perspective of a yogi and a bar method

8
00:00:18,330 –> 00:00:20,609
student the nike studio rap shoes retail

9
00:00:20,609 –> 00:00:23,369
for around $55 with tax and then they

10
00:00:23,369 –> 00:00:25,019
have another version win which the

11
00:00:25,019 –> 00:00:26,760
studio shoe fits in a little ballet

12
00:00:26,760 –> 00:00:28,349
slipper that you can wear while walking

13
00:00:28,349 –> 00:00:30,660
around outside that version retails

14
00:00:30,660 –> 00:00:34,140
closer to $100 here are some photos of

15
00:00:34,140 –> 00:00:37,260
me opening the shoes and what I found

16
00:00:37,260 –> 00:00:39,360
inside so what you get is two shoes and

17
00:00:39,360 –> 00:00:41,160
one carrying case bag which I actually

18
00:00:41,160 –> 00:00:43,079
used and found helpful the shoes

19
00:00:43,079 –> 00:00:45,360
themselves bend a lot on the bottom side

20
00:00:45,360 –> 00:00:48,989
they have lots of little gripper dots so

21
00:00:48,989 –> 00:00:50,760
there’s really good traction with these

22
00:00:50,760 –> 00:00:53,460
shoes and then the heel is smooth one

23
00:00:53,460 –> 00:00:55,110
thing to know about the studio wraps is

24
00:00:55,110 –> 00:00:57,449
that they come in small medium and large

25
00:00:57,449 –> 00:01:00,030
there’s not normal shoe sizes that

26
00:01:00,030 –> 00:01:02,100
really surprised me I ended up getting a

27
00:01:02,100 –> 00:01:03,899
medium which I was told was right for me

28
00:01:03,899 –> 00:01:05,700
as an eight eight and a half nine I

29
00:01:05,700 –> 00:01:07,590
found them tight at the beginning the

30
00:01:07,590 –> 00:01:08,790
first time I wore them they were

31
00:01:08,790 –> 00:01:11,100
definitely snug yet the more I wore them

32
00:01:11,100 –> 00:01:13,350
they really began to mold and fit my

33
00:01:13,350 –> 00:01:15,360
foot to a point that when I started

34
00:01:15,360 –> 00:01:17,820
doing yoga with them I didn’t even feel

35
00:01:17,820 –> 00:01:24,180
the studio wraps at all so in Bar Method

36
00:01:24,180 –> 00:01:25,799
one of the things I really liked about

37
00:01:25,799 –> 00:01:28,530
these shoes is that I actually felt like

38
00:01:28,530 –> 00:01:31,409
I was more barefoot than I am wearing

39
00:01:31,409 –> 00:01:33,390
socks because my toes were completely

40
00:01:33,390 –> 00:01:35,700
exposed and parts of the top of my foot

41
00:01:35,700 –> 00:01:37,770
were exposed so you think wearing

42
00:01:37,770 –> 00:01:39,090
something like a shoe would make you

43
00:01:39,090 –> 00:01:41,009
feel more covered up but I actually

44
00:01:41,009 –> 00:01:43,560
found the opposite I felt like my feet

45
00:01:43,560 –> 00:01:45,329
and my toes were a lot freer because

46
00:01:45,329 –> 00:01:47,280
they were out in the open when I had the

47
00:01:47,280 –> 00:01:49,530
shoe as opposed to socks at my bar

48
00:01:49,530 –> 00:01:51,960
method studio the mats are very small so

49
00:01:51,960 –> 00:01:53,729
when you do forearm plank with your toes

50
00:01:53,729 –> 00:01:55,950
curled under you’re always slipping on

51
00:01:55,950 –> 00:01:58,350
the wood with these shoes I had great

52
00:01:58,350 –> 00:01:58,740
grip

53
00:01:58,740 –> 00:02:00,570
I didn’t slip at all meaning I could

54
00:02:00,570 –> 00:02:02,670
work my abs more and then I loved how

55
00:02:02,670 –> 00:02:04,320
the heel was smooth and I could slide

56
00:02:04,320 –> 00:02:06,180
out into split and other stretches

57
00:02:06,180 –> 00:02:07,740
during the stretching portion of the

58
00:02:07,740 –> 00:02:09,810
class I loved that I felt more barefoot

59
00:02:09,810 –> 00:02:11,970
and that I wasn’t wearing socks so we

60
00:02:11,970 –> 00:02:13,270
covered bar method let’s hop

61
00:02:13,270 –> 00:02:16,870
over to yoga I don’t know if it’s just

62
00:02:16,870 –> 00:02:18,610
me but when I do yoga I kind of go to

63
00:02:18,610 –> 00:02:20,500
this other place when I was doing yoga

64
00:02:20,500 –> 00:02:22,120
with the studio wrap shoes I actually

65
00:02:22,120 –> 00:02:24,820
completely forgot I was wearing them I

66
00:02:24,820 –> 00:02:26,740
have to give Nike props for this because

67
00:02:26,740 –> 00:02:28,810
if their goal was to make a shoe feel

68
00:02:28,810 –> 00:02:31,360
like bare feet they did a great job with

69
00:02:31,360 –> 00:02:33,130
this I completely forgot that I was

70
00:02:33,130 –> 00:02:35,920
wearing them and I was only reminded if

71
00:02:35,920 –> 00:02:38,500
I physically have to grab my foot or

72
00:02:38,500 –> 00:02:40,540
look down at my feet during my practice

73
00:02:40,540 –> 00:02:43,420
now that being said I don’t really feel

74
00:02:43,420 –> 00:02:45,970
like they enhanced my practice either I

75
00:02:45,970 –> 00:02:47,740
definitely had great range of motion and

76
00:02:47,740 –> 00:02:49,510
could do all the yoga poses I wanted to

77
00:02:49,510 –> 00:02:52,450
do everything felt very normal but I’m

78
00:02:52,450 –> 00:02:54,940
not sure if you’re just a yogi if it’s

79
00:02:54,940 –> 00:02:57,310
worth it with two exceptions if you’re a

80
00:02:57,310 –> 00:02:59,200
germaphobe and you’re renting public

81
00:02:59,200 –> 00:03:00,760
yoga mats a lot and you don’t want your

82
00:03:00,760 –> 00:03:02,770
feet touching the mat I think these are

83
00:03:02,770 –> 00:03:05,650
a good option for you if you sweat a lot

84
00:03:05,650 –> 00:03:07,120
and you’re really worried about slipping

85
00:03:07,120 –> 00:03:08,680
and sliding maybe you use one of those

86
00:03:08,680 –> 00:03:11,140
yoga towels I also think these shoes are

87
00:03:11,140 –> 00:03:12,790
a great option for you because they

88
00:03:12,790 –> 00:03:14,830
really do provide extra traction if

89
00:03:14,830 –> 00:03:16,840
you’re a yogi who’s not a germaphobe and

90
00:03:16,840 –> 00:03:19,030
doesn’t have the slip and slide problem

91
00:03:19,030 –> 00:03:21,220
to the extent that you need shoes you

92
00:03:21,220 –> 00:03:22,780
might also want to invest in them if

93
00:03:22,780 –> 00:03:24,370
you’re also going to bar method because

94
00:03:24,370 –> 00:03:26,320
you can use them in bar method and you

95
00:03:26,320 –> 00:03:27,880
can use them in yoga if you feel like it

96
00:03:27,880 –> 00:03:29,140
or you know you’re going to be renting a

97
00:03:29,140 –> 00:03:31,330
public mat all in all I’d say the nike

98
00:03:31,330 –> 00:03:33,490
studio wrap shoes definitely improve my

99
00:03:33,490 –> 00:03:35,530
bar method experience I much prefer them

100
00:03:35,530 –> 00:03:37,900
to socks and didn’t really move the

101
00:03:37,900 –> 00:03:39,760
needle for me on my yoga practice a

102
00:03:39,760 –> 00:03:41,470
fellow teacher pointed out to me that if

103
00:03:41,470 –> 00:03:43,330
you had the nike studio wrap shoes and

104
00:03:43,330 –> 00:03:45,100
then some sort of similar glove you

105
00:03:45,100 –> 00:03:47,140
could actually do yoga without a mat so

106
00:03:47,140 –> 00:03:49,180
I don’t know if Nikes planning on coming

107
00:03:49,180 –> 00:03:51,130
out with gloves anytime soon but

108
00:03:51,130 –> 00:03:53,050
something to consider let me know in the

109
00:03:53,050 –> 00:03:54,520
comments below what you think of these

110
00:03:54,520 –> 00:03:57,490
shoes for either bar method or yoga do

111
00:03:57,490 –> 00:03:59,170
you think it’s crazy that people are

112
00:03:59,170 –> 00:04:00,640
even trying to sell us something like

113
00:04:00,640 –> 00:04:02,440
this for yoga I want to hear what you
