Thorlos® CTPS: Protective Gear For Your Feet

When your job is protecting your country, the last thing you need to be thinking about is your feet. Nevertheless, foot issues follow ground, air and combat service support elements throughout all encounters.  In the field, feet are prone to getting and staying wet from sweating, crossing canals and streams.  The skin will get soft and easily blister if not properly cared for. In winter, you might be patrolling in the frigid mountains where your feet can get cold or even frostbitten. Experience has taught us you can’t afford go barefoot or get blisters or infections on your feet in the field. Combat troops should not have to carry someone who could have taken better care of his or her feet. That’s the job of Thorlos clinically-tested padded socks (CTPS) for military boots.

“My Marine son says these are the best boot socks ever! Whether wearing his jungle boots or combat boots, he loves these socks for the comfort, length, durability and elasticity to roll up skivvies. The Marine Corps has taught my son the best thing you can do every day is take care of your feet with clean socks. They may wear the same clothes for 7-10 days straight in the field, but are always told to air out their feet and change their socks. If my Marine is happy, Mom is happy!”  Patty M.

Our mission is to provide unprecedented foot protection and foot comfort in support of the critical role combat infantry and special operations forces play in military operations. As such, we designed Thorlos clinically-tested military boot socks to be protective gear for your feet.

Thorlos core technology is engineered padding that has been clinically-tested and shown in independent studies to reduce:

  • Blisters
  • Pain
  • Pressures
  • Moisture

These benefits make Thorlos part of your protective gear for your feet.

“I'm currently going through basic training and I recommend these to anyone who needs to wear a heavy boot all day. I've never had a problem with them staying up and after 9 weeks I still have healthy, un-damaged feet (no blisters, ever!) Great buy!”  Barrett F.

“These socks are super warm, fabulous, and cushiony!!! Love the extra coverage and protection against the spots that usually get blisters. My other boot socks do not compare!”  Jeffrey C.

Thorlos Trusted by The Best of The Best

Thorlos clinically-tested padded military boot socks have been put to the ultimate test by Recon, SEAL teams and Special Forces Units. The ST (Mountaineering boot sock) was the sock of choice of the Special Forces units of the U.S. military for cold weather operations in Afghanistan, and it is the official sock of the Indian Defense Forces. They chose Thorlos because these CTPS provided added protection and comfort while they were deployed, especially in mountainous areas where the terrain features rock faces so sharp they can cut through boots. Your buddies have your back; let Thorlos have your feet.

“Sent these to my stepson, a Navy Seal, stationed overseas. He wrote us ““Those socks are seriously amazing, if it weren't for the color of them I'd wear them with my civilian clothes lol... they're like floating on air in your boots...”  Joy R.

Thorlos Customers Committed to Active American Forces

We have developed a program whereby our customers are invited to donate Thorlos CTPS combat boot socks to troops in the active theater. They can purchase our Thorlos clinically-tested padded military boot socks at our manufacturing cost. We then work with other supporting organizations to get the donated socks to our troops. It is truly the cause we are most proud of supporting.

Curious but not yet convinced whether Thorlos CTPS can help you address your foot pain? We invite you to try your first pair free…just paying shipping and handling.

Because of the demands placed on your feet during military duty we do not make Lite Padded Socks (LPS) for this purpose. You need the foot protection provided by our clinically-tested padded socks (CTPS).

Brand Promise Guarantee

For a job this serious, we know there is no such thing as a trial period…there are no rehearsals in military services once you cross the forward edge of the battle area. On the other hand, we know money is tight and company supply socks are free. So we stand behind our product. If you don’t agree that with Thorlos, your feet feel better than when wearing general issue socks from the company supply, we’ll refund your money. No questions asked.

    Best sock!


    I'm fireman and always look for a comfortable sock (having to wear both in a duty boot as well as a bunking (fire) boot). I've purchased the normal combat sock and have liked them. I decided to try these and will buy nothing else from this point forward. I'm amazed how good they feel after wearing them all day. Normally the high (full calf cover) sock gets a little bothersome at the end of the day, but these you forget they're even on. If you have excessively large calves I can't say how they'll fit 'cause they go on really snug, but feel great. Definitely worth giving one a try.

    Best leg support


    I put these socks on in the morning and when I take them off 10 - 12 hours later. My legs feel like I just put them on. I can't recommend socks enough. They are fantastic.

    Anti Fatigue Socks


    These are not as cushioned or as comfortable as Thorlo anti fatigue socks previously purchased. They feel as it they were from a different manufacturer.

    I'm 67 been wearing these for about 15 /18 years. Very comfortable with great support. The only negative is the price.

    Best boot socks for runs and humps


    The socks are very thick and fill out any dead space in your boot preventing your feet from sloshing around. That tight fit along with thorlo's material helps prevent blisters! The length of the sock easily comes up to the knees so your shins are well protected from any rubbing. These socks are the best kept secret.

    Best socks EVER !!!!


    These socks are worth the money. I've tried just about every sock brand I can think of & nothing comes close to my Thorlos . I'll never buy anything other then Thorlos Brand Socks.

    Not What The Picture Showed


    These are really, really heavy socks. I have been trying to find the socks I wore for 20 years in the Navy and 10 years after that. They were over the calf boot socks that didn't fall down. These are not the right ones. They may be great for combat but they don't serve my purposes at all.

    Best boot socks, EVER


    I wore these for the last decade of my military career. Nothing compares to these, hands down. These socks made all the difference while at sea and wearing heavy steel toe boots for 14 - 18 hours a day in the Persian Gulf. Well worth the price!
