Arebesk ™ gripper socks were created in 2017 to compliment upscale, street-smart athletic brands. Designed as the first “gripper” socks with unique silicone patches, for extra traction, and the first gripper sock to have silicone inside the heel of the sock. The colorful line of Pilates/yoga and bare/dance socks are mandatory apparel for mainstream, high-powered workouts.

Fusing style and substance, Arebesk ™ gripper socks are adorned with white or black fishnet accents, to offer breathability and an edgy-beauty to the flexible cotton/spandex design. Two half-circle, non-slip patches of high-grade silicone on the heel and ball of the sock provide extra support and traction which was lacking in competing brands. Add a unique, third silicone tag to the inside of the heel of the sock to further prevent painful slippage on the floor or mat.

Arebesk ™ are notable due their thick, high-raised “a-shaped” silicone grippers conceived to prevent wear out after washing. The meaning of AREBESK™ which is originally spelled “Arabesque” is a standard Ballet move where the body is supported on one leg, with the other leg sweeping backwards. This move is also used in Pilates and other workouts. AREBESKS triangular logo/symbol also emulates the ‘V shape’ of classic Pilates form. Each pair is easy to wash/hang dry.

Designer and Pilates enthusiast Leana Shayefar conceived the idea for Arebesk™ after being unable to find a design that offered her real style and trackage. The designer is the first to add an easy-to-carry mesh, drawstring bag that comes with every pair of AREBESK™ gripper socks for extra hygiene and convenience! New colors and styles will be available each season, with black fishnet/gray, black fishnet/black, white fishnet/pink and white fishnet/aqua socks debuting in the January 2018 online and in Pilates, dance, yoga and barre studios across the USA.

Los Angeles based designer, Leana Shayefar was a fashion entrepreneur before she was twenty years old. Her design and marketing of a handmade floral headpiece with an invisible elastic band sold out at RAMPAGE stores inside a week. An account she got by walking into buying offices herself and making the deal happen. Over two hundred retail accounts later, the teenager was beaming when her camouflage headband design was seen on superstar Beyonce on the cover of CosmoGirl magazine.

Bitten by the business bug, Leana pursued her next endeavor, a never-before-seen corset-styled sleeveless tank top. The sexy, feminine tank top collection immediately thrilled fashion editors and customers with its edgy, unconventional design. Leana Couture Tank Tops were showcased in the media coast-to-coast, with celebrities like MTV’s Vanessa Milano, Eva Longoria, Ashley Simpson, Nicole Ritchie and more choosing to wear them.

After proudly becoming a young mother of two, the Angelino quickly found success consulting on-trend fashion houses in L.A. and NYC. Obtaining solid marketing experience in NYC and Los Angeles, mixed with a role organizing high-profile events for celebrities, brought vital lifestyle and entertainment industry insight to the young, talented designer.

In 2017, Shayefar instinctively fused her innate love of fashion with her new life passion- Pilates! Understanding what a Pilates/yoga customer holds important in an effective sock, her newest company, Arebesk ™ was born. The line of colorful, high-grade cotton “grippers” infuses a surprising fashion flare- Fishnet fabric !-into an athletic “traction” design that appeals to women of all ages and races, interested in dance, bare, yoga and Pilates. # # #
