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 socks ever!

    Plenty of support and cushion. The new style of top edge is a good improvement. Not too tight, yet very reinforcing. I've always liked Thorlos ... and I see no reason to change! Life-long customer.

    I only wear these socks!

    10/07/16 | By

    I have three colors of these and only wear the MB socks for everything, dress up, dress down, shorts, etc. My feet have never been better. I am a 10.5, and the 10-12 still has a little extra fabric that comes at the end. If this was a scale of 10, I would rate a 9.

    Great socks for Law Enforcement

    These socks are perfect except for one thing...they make my feet sweat. My 5.11 socks are awesome to wick the moisture away and not leave my feet sweaty, but I really like the compression and the thickness of these socks. They never fall down my legs.

    Time to order more!

    These are nice cushy socks! I think I first started wearing the crew socks and switched to the over-the-calf ones because they DO stay up! All my black socks have had it after a couple years' use. I ordered 4 pairs of white ones about 15 months ago. They're still holding up, but they show dirt too easily, so I will be switching to black from now on. Love that springy cushiness when I wear these socks! The cushiness and "stay-up-ability" make them worth the price.

    Best OTC socks ever

    09/23/16 | By

    I feel good. I've searched for OTC socks that actually stay up & are comfortable for years. These are the only ones I've found that do what socks should do. I plan on wearing these until I die of old age and even then I want to be buried in them.

    I purchased these socks for a Sailor in DC who is in the Ceremonial Guard as a casket bearer and he Absolutely Loves them. He said his feet no longer hurt or burn while participating at funerals. He would highly recommend them! GO NAVY!
