Experia Experia® Multi-Sport socks

Experia Lite Padded Socks—Stay Active and Comfortable

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.

The special frame of the sock 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 Socks: Lite Padding with Aerodynamic Fit

We use a thinner sculpted version of our engineered padding 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


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.

Merino Wool/Silk Design (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 High Design Socks?

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.

“I was introduced to them at a marathon expo and initially purchased them for running.  But I discovered this is the perfect sock for everything, from golf to tennis to a walk in the park with my dog. I no longer get blisters when wearing the Experia with THOR•WICK®COOL and my feet don’t feel as wet” Wendy Hogan, Account Service Representative

    Good Gym Socks

    04/24/16 | By

    I got these because I wanted some thinner gym socks than my current ones, and these were an awesome choice. Padding in the ball of the heel and the toes, I don't tend to run, but for a ten minute warm up jog, they did amazing in that department too, not just for weight lifting. It says it's not recommended to wear these if you currently use the medium to heavily padded socks from Thorlo, which, I wear the medium padding for my work crew socks, but I haven't noticed any bad side effect. Nonetheless, these are amazing all around gym socks. I would totally get another pair if I needed one.

    Fantastic Running Socks!

    I have recently resumed running after a bout of cancer last year and these socks are wonderful! They have enough cushion to absorb some of the pounding, but not too much to make then feel squishy or soft. Fantastic!

    Most lightweight (decent padding though) and snug out of all the Thorlos varieties I've tried.

    Foot padding & a breathable fabric

    04/08/16 | By

    Recently began wearing compression socks to help reduce everyday RA swelling in joints. I purchased several other brands of compression socks in the same price range that month. Look at Thorlos because I’ve was pleased with their walking socks. Although I wanted knee-highs, the XEOU Experia® Multi-Activity over-calf sock was the only compression sock I found in the price range with some built-in foot padding to help protect metatarsal joints and other joints making walking more comfortable for me. Compared with the other brands I purchased, they are incredibly breathable (even in the hot, humid Gulf Coast climate). The socks’ durability, so far, is better than the other brands (no snags, keeps shape in toes and heel). The socks are great as is, but a wider top band would be a nice comfort improvement. If this sock came in knee-high, it would be my daily compression sock of choice. I would buy these again.

    Socks save the bottom of my feet. They do not make my shoes tight when wearing.

    Great for everything

    These are probably my favorite socks and I have tried smart wool, darn tough, and several other $15/sock brands. They stay put and are snug. A little extra padding but not thick.

    I don't exercise or walk my usual 3-5 miles without my Thorlo socks! I have them in all colors and have also given them to friends as gifts. Thank you!
