We are a proudly Canadian company.
The PigaLite stability grip socks offer light to medium support and feature an elastic behind the heel for easy on and off, and can be worn in shoes. The PigaOne stability grip socks offer medium to firm support and feature a velcro behind the heel to adjust the level of arch support, but cannot be worn in closed-toe shoes.
Yes, you can! Our PigaLite and PigaOne models are both suitable for loose fitting shoes, providing additional support particularly in those that lack support. For tight fitting shoes, we recommend using the PigaLite model. Additionally, you can wear either model in tongs or Crocs for extra support.
Medium to high intensity with PigaOne and Low to medium intensity with PigaLite. Use them on land or in the water such as barre, Pilates, yoga, dance, paddle board, martial arts, and much more!

Yes, you can! Our socks are made of bathing-suit like material and dry fast. You can wear them whether indoors or outdoors on any non-abrasive surface to protect the non-skid sole. You can also wear them in your flipflops or running shoes on your way to your favorite sporting activity.
They are made of stretchable fabric, similar to leggings. The German-engineered fabrics keep you cool and dry, for maximum comfort and support. The blend of spandex/nylon of these top-of-the-line quality fabrics provide super soft peach-like feel and excellent recovery properties.
Both PigaOne and PigaLite integrates our patented PostureForce System featuring a soft arch-support band that literally ‘’lifts you up’’ by supporting your feet. But the benefits don’t stop here. Our socks also provide a compressive effect that stays put while you move and take care of sweaty feet. What makes them truly unique is that they can also help prevent or recover from different types of foot injuries that may sometimes hamper your training.

Our socks feature a dual action mechanism that improve balance by repositioning the center of gravity for less upper body sway and improving ground anchoring by enhancing the feet’s weight-bearing areas. The result, improved stability!
Our socks are the result of several years of effort with a team of experts focusing on a novel approach leveraging your body’s innate self-correcting mechanisms. Our socks awakens your feet by engaging your body’s unconscious reflexes from the bottom up your muscular chain to reach your balance zone.
PigaOne has been tested throughout the prototype development process with cohort of women doing yoga. The clinical trials that followed demonstrated improved balance in 90% of the participants.
We are proudly Canadian and our socks were designed in a Quebec-based innovation research center. PigaOne was developed in collaboration with a US-trained doctor in podiatric medicine utilizing novel biomechanics approaches in her clinical practice.

Our socks should be cleaned by hand or machine-washed in a wash bag (you can purchase one on this site in case you don’t have any at home). No bleach nor fabric softener should be used. Hang or lay flat to dry in just a few minutes! Do not tumble dry as heat alters the spandex, which provides compression and support to our socks.
