Clinically-Tested Padded Socks For Feet That Hurt

.

Working Hard Means Stressing Your Feet

Working a 10-,12- or even 24-hour shift on concrete floors in steel toe boots or safety toe boots can be torture on your feet. This kind of foot stress is true for a trade worker, construction worker or steel worker The same is true of a production worker, someone who works in a warehouse environment or operates heavy equipment or anyone else who spends extended periods of time on his or her feet at work. We know these jobs don’t just pound away at the feet; the repetitive impact has a ripple effect through the ankles, knees, hips and to the spinal cord and back. Over time, it all adds up to multiple problems. Thorlos will help.

“I bought these for my husband who works 24-hour shifts. He says that usually by dinner time his feet are hurting but he really noticed a difference wearing the Thorlos, Thanks!”  Teresa B.

Thorlos Clinically-Tested Padded Socks = Protection & Comfort

We make six different styles of Thorlos clinically-tested padded socks (CTPS) to help protect your feet from the pounding they receive during a hard day’s work. All are designed to address the foot aches and pains that surface during the day and help prevent foot conditions from occurring in the first place. Thorlos engineered padding has been clinically shown to reduce foot aches and pain. Its moisture-wicking properties move moisture away from your feet. Thorlos padding has also been shown in independent research to reduce blisters (excessive moisture is the catalyst for blister formation). Reducing blisters, pain, pressures and moisture means your feet will be more comfortable—and better protected— throughout a long day at work.

“Best uniform socks available. Period. Stop looking; you won't find anything better. These socks make the difference in comfort, and last for years. They wick away moisture from perspiration and give you all-day-long comfort. I literally just got home from a 14- hour tour of duty and my feet and calves felt like first thing in the morning. I even wore a pair of these 3 years ago with those god-awful rental tuxedo shoes for my daughter's wedding. No blisters, no pain, and danced the night away. I've been wearing Thorlos for years both on and off duty, and while they can be costly, you can find sales if you shop wisely. You get what you pay for, and with Thorlos, you actually get more.”  Timothy K.

“These socks are comfortable to wear, giving the soles of my feet the padding I need to get through the day. I recommend them!”  Margaret E.

Thorlos Protect Your Feet From the Steel Plates in Steel Toe Shoes 

It’s impossible for a regular tube sock to protect your foot from the steel plates and steel shanks in a steel toe or safety boot. Here, too, Thorlos do the job.

“I wear heavy, steel toe, leather boots to work for 12 hours. These socks are amazingly comfortable.”  Robert L.

“My husband wears steel toed work boots all day and LOVES these socks. More cushioning and awesome moisture wicking make his feet happier!”  Deanna G.

Thorlos places its clinically-tested engineered padding in precisely the right places for maximum protection and comfort.  Here is a brief review of the six styles:

“I am a machine mechanic in a manufacturing plant. I walk from machine to machine and then I may be stationary on my feet to repair a machine or its sub components. I have in the last 4-years purchased as many as 3 sets of boots per year thinking it was the boots. I was always trying to find a better fitting boot and that is costly. Now after just slipping on one pair of the Thorlos, my prayers are answered. I am 50 years old and I will be working until 65 years old and I no longer have to worry about how I am going to walk in those next 15 years. Thorlos socks will enable me to me to stand and walk with ease and comfort for the next 15 years of employment. :-) Thank you!” Terrence E.

“I am hooked on Thorlos Industrial Uniform Steel Toe WLST model. It’s designed to protect my feet from the steel shanks in my safety boots.  I tried them on…they felt so comfortable, so I bought 2 pairs.  Now, I wear nothing but the WLST model at work. I especially like the length and my feet feel great after long days.” Wayne Weston, Thorlos Carolina Brand Ambassador

    was expecting big things from these socks in terms of relieving the pain i have near the balls of my feet as i work on concrete floors almost exclusively. did not notice any difference from ordinary socks. glad i only paid $5 for these socks. At $15 I would certainly feel ripped off

    Unlike wearers of all-black socks, the owner of Thorlos WSX Uniform White Toe Socks may rest confiedently in the knowledge that, when said socks are removed from his feet after a long day of trodding and treading, no unsightly black debris will appear to have been trapped under the corners of his big toenails. Tragedy averted!

    Comfort and support all day, everyday.

    I've been wearing the same 16 pair of Thorlo hiking sox almost everyday for over 20 years. They're finally starting to wear out at toe & heel. As I retire these sox I'll be replacing them with new Thorlos. These socks are worth every penny.

    These socks are worth the money spent on them..I have very worn out feet and the cushion in the bottom of the sock keeps my thin feet from hurting. They also wash really well.

    They are kinda thin not like the Thorlo experia athletic ankle socks that I cannot like without. I bought these for my nursing school uniform and they are just an average sock. Wish they make a crew sock in the experias in white:/

    I wanted to try the WGX for one simple reason. I was tired of having to continuously stop what I was doing at construction sites or at our plant's yard and pull up my socks as they continued to bunch and gather at the toes in my work boots. They did exactly what I needed them to do, stay in place all day long. I usually have my work boots on for 12 plus hours a day. I will be purchasing more Thorlos very soon. By the way, I've already told my boss that he needed to order his free pair and give them a test drive!
