Dress Socks

Dress Shoes Designed for Fashion, Not Comfort Equal Best Dress Socks

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 socks can help.

 “Out of all the expensive ... 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 socks, designed for feet that don’t hurt during the day (If your feet do hurt, we recommend our MORE Casual Comfort). Thorlos 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

Best Mens Dress Socks Assured with Proprietary Yarns

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 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 socks.

Thorlos Over-the-Calf Dress Socks Stay Up 

Thorlos padded 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.

    Finally a Thorlo dress sock!!!!

    My hubby has been waiting patiently for Thorlo to make a dress sock! I purchased one pair to see if he liked the thickness. This sock would not fit in his snug fitting dress shoes but it fits in most and makes them super comfy!

    Husband's new favourite socks

    10/10/16 | By

    My sweetheart loves that the socks fit smoothly into his dress boots and still offer lots of padding on the sole for long days standing. Ordering three more pairs as he is so happy.

    Great dress socks for hard working feet.

    10/01/16 | By

    I love the ECCXW but they only come in black. I purchased the khaki and brown in the XDXW to wear with my brown slacks and khakis. They keep my feet dry and comfortable. I work in a hospital and am on my feet many hours a day on hard surface floors. I look professional and my feet are happy. These are not inexpensive socks but: 1) They last forever; I have a pair of Thorlos hiking socks which are 10+ years old and still going strong. 2) They are made in the USA. Make sure you turn the socks inside out when washing and use fabric softener and you will love these socks for many, many years. P.S. Please consider navy blue as a color choice.

    That's the problem. I could not get them on. I have large calf's and they would not extend up to fit them. Otherwise they would be wonderful, but only if you are average or petite man or woman.

    Great When Thin Socks Required

    I have some shoes that need a thin sock. These are perfect. Still have some nice padding for comfort, but very little bulk.

    I liked the fabric and colors, but they were too long. I want my socks snug like athletic socks.

    Like I am wearing a cheap crew sock with insufficient padding.

    These would be a last resort for me, lacking padding, not much different from other dress socks

    09/04/16 | By

    I would not use these if you need padding, or want comfort. I wear boots all the time, and found these were too thin to be useful for me. My feet sweat alot, and I have orthotics, and these were so thin my feet stuck to the orthotics as I walked. Not a favorite, would not recommend if you want the benefit of Thorlo comfort padding.
