Experia Experia® Multi-Sport socks

Experia Lite Padded Socks—Stay Active and Comfortable

Experia is a high-performance padded sock that is designed for people whose feet don’t hurt during or after activity and who love to stay on the move, whether it’s running, biking, light hiking, fitness training, distance walking, recreational golf—just about any sport you can think of that puts low-to-moderate stress on your feet.

 “These socks have padding in all the right places. However they don't add bulk to the entire foot to make your shoes tight. Love them!”  Monique F.

Experia stays with you as you push yourself and push the competition, keeping your feet comfortable, cool, and protected as you jog to the gym, fitness walk, run on the treadmill, weight train, cross train or interval train.

 “Wore these socks for my first marathon and loved them!”  Maria L.


Experia: Lite Padding with Aerodynamic Fit

We use a thinner sculpted version of our engineered padding in Experia Lite Padded Socks (LPS) in the ball and heel to protect against shear and impact forces, providing more protection and comfort than regular thin cushion socks. Experia features an ultra-lightweight mesh polyester frame to provide maximum breathability and an aerodynamic fit for less weight than Thorlos clinically-tested padded socks. It also provides a lightweight Achilles tendon pad that protects against rubbing and chafing while also functioning as a heel lock. The result is the ultimate padded performance sock…beyond all other performance socks.

Two Different Styles: Featuring THOR•WICK®COOL and Merino Wool/Silk

Experia Lite padded multi-sport performance socks are made in two styles:

Experia THOR•WICK®COOL (XCCU)                    

Features include sculpted thinner padding, made primarily with THOR•WICK®COOL to wick moisture away from your feet to the outside of the padded socks, where it can evaporate quickly, keeping your feet cool and comfortable.

Colors: white, black, royal blue, pink,turquoise, navy, berry, electric/neon, yellow, and green.                        

  “I bought these because I love the Experia white low-cut socks that I wear for walking in the summer. I bought these to take to Europe this fall. I have tested them out while doing day long chores that required me to be on my feet. They are just what I hoped for! They are in the suitcase ready to go.”   Linda R.

Experia Merino Wool/Silk (XWCU)          

Features a unique blend of merino wool/silk that adds a bit of warmth (especially for your toes!) during cold weather activities.

Colors: charcoal, chestnut brown, forest green, celery, khaki, pink and blue.

“I wondered about the design and the use of wool and silk in the same socks but after wearing the first three pairs, I ordered three more. They are the most comfortable socks I have. The wool pads the contact points and the silk wicks away moisture.”   Gary W.

 Why Experia LPS?

Experia multi-sport, performance-engineered LPS are the perfect choice for active people without foot pain or other foot problems and are engineered for activities where less weight and an aerodynamic fit are important. They provide just the right amount of padding in the feet’s strike zones, giving you a competitive edge and, at the same time, the most protection possible without a change in shoe size.           

 “Best socks I have ever used when distance running. Able to run more often and for longer distances without my feet hurting!”   Jeffrey C.

If your feet hurt during or after running/jogging, we strongly recommend our clinically-tested padded running socks. To learn more click here.

    best socks for summertime


    the socks are light weight and cool, which is what i wanted for a summer sock. My only concern is that they seem to run smaller than the other socks I have ordered, as such I would probably order a larger size. As a diabetic I need less constraint. Other than the stated concern the socks are great, love the color. Once again, I love Thorlo socks.

    Great Running Socks!


    As a person with foot issues, I was concerned the padding may be a little to much in all the wrong places. I ran a downhill half marathon on Saturday and "WOW"! Pleasantly surprised. No irritating rub, and my feet felt fabulous! Great product.

    To loose


    Hello, I am a real fan of the extra padding of the Thorlo socks. These new socks look great BUT they are too loose and they slide of the foot while walking and running. They are not tight enough. They need improvement. Again, design and colors are great. Cheers, Sandra

    Work socks


    A thread was torn or sticking out on one sock. Wasn't sure if it would hold up

    Best socks in the world


    I wear these socks in the spring summer for work, on my feet for 12 hour shifts, for walking, working out, and relaxing. They are super comfortable. I don't wear any other socks but thorlos. In the winter it's the military style. Best socks ever made and they last for years. And they are made here in the USA.
