Lite Padded Socks For Feet That Do Not Hurt

Dress Shoes Designed for Fashion, Not Comfort

Most tight-fitting dress shoes will torture your feet, especially if you are unlucky enough to be a “pavement pounder” or spend hours making presentations on concrete business convention floors. Thorlos promises to make your feet more comfortable in any dress shoes…that's our brand promise guarantee.

“These are the best dress socks I've owned in 60 years of wearing suits.”  S. Li

Unfortunately, most dress shoes are designed to look good, but not necessarily to be comfortable. Traditional designs use leather uppers, leather outer soles and a minimal amount of padding in the shoe. And if you need to spend lots of time on your feet in dress shoes, it’s a good bet that your feet will hurt because most dress shoes are not designed for extended periods of standing or for walking long distances. Thorlos engineered padded dress socks can help.

 “Out of all the expensive dress socks I've purchased for my husband, these Thorlos are his absolute favorite!”  K. Randall

Thorlos Engineered Padded Socks Make Dress Shoes Comfortable

Thorlos incorporates its foot protection technology into its thin padded dress socks, designed for feet that don’t hurt during the day (If your feet do hurt, we recommend our MORE Casual Comfort). Thorlos dress socks have Lite padding in the ball and heel to protect the foot in hard-soled and less flexible shoes. This protection will make a world of difference in the way your feet feel, but won’t change your shoe size. A little bit of padding goes a long way in a pair of dress shoes.

“This sock is perfect for wearing in dress shoes- the padding at the ball of the foot is really a plus for "older feet". The quality and fit is good and we have yet to see a pair wear out.”   J. Mares

The Lite padding in the ball and heel will reduce the shearing and impact forces that cause foot pain and aches (foot fatigue) as well as blisters. The arch is designed with a special flat knit for a better fit and added comfort. THORLON yarn wicks moisture away to further assure a healthy environment for your feet.

“The cushion helps his feet stay comfortable and the socks don't slide down-don't bind either and are American made! We buy them 8 pairs at a time!”  G. Kilgore

“I love these black dress socks because of the longer length and the extra cushion the socks have.”  J. Watson

With Thorlos padded dress socks, there is no need to resign yourself to the idea that dress shoes are  not comfortable. With Thorlos, your feet can look good and feel good at the same time. What Pantherella* socks are to style, Thorlos is to comfort. So if comfort is what you seek, look no further than Thorlos padded dress socks.

Thorlos Over-the-Calf Dress Socks Stay Up 

Thorlos padded dress socks come in two lengths: DLT over-the-calf (also called knee-high) and DLTX crew length. Both are designed to stay up all day long because nothing is more aggravating than socks that slip down.

“I really like the support of over-the-calf foot wear. These socks are also beautifully woven.”  W. Lally

“The socks feel great and I'm glad I bought them. I must admit, I was apprehensive at first due to price so I first bought a trial pair and then came back for more :). They are my favorite dress socks. Also, they stay up better than average socks but not the best I've seen.”  J. Davila

If your feet hurt during or after wearing dress shoes, we strongly recommend our More Casual Comfort socks that feature our clinically-tested padding.

    Good socks for cool weather.

    I prefer cotton socks for warm weather. But finding cotton socks for my size 15 foot is difficult.

    Great socks, just won't stay up

    | By

    I used to rave over these socks after having owned dozens. My latest order (Feb 2014) has disappointed me a bit. The padding on the heels and foot ball is excellent, but the elastic in the calf area is basically non-existent. Constantly having to pull them up.

    Best Dress Sock for comfort and appearance

    | By

    I wore Thorlos for years for sports. As I got into my 50's, my feet didn't like the pounding they took wearing dress shoes. I found out Thorlo made padded dress socks and I've worn them exclusively ever since. They look dressy, are very soft, and wear like iron, far longer than the Gold Toe socks I was wearing. They are not cheap, but they really are a great value.

    Did not fit well. I have large calves and the socks wouldn't stay up so I returned them. Good return service - no questions asked on return.
