Experia Experia® Multi-Sport socks

Experia Lite Padded Socks—Stay Active and Comfortable

NEW CREW STYLE IN COOL "JET" COLORS

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.

New Crew  Length

Experia now comes in a new crew length style that provides additional moisture management during your activity,  and our new “jet” colors: red, orange, green, turquoise, white, royal pink, berry. Like all Experia padded socks, this style features COOLMAX® fiber technology.

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 COOLMAX and Merino Wool/Silk

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

Experia COOLMAX (XCCU)                    

Features include sculpted thinner padding, made primarily with COOLMAX 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.

Employee Favorite 

 “I was introduced to Experia at a marathon expo.  I initially purchased Experia for running, but 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 COOLMAX and my feet don’t feel as wet”  Wendy Hogan, Account Service Representative

    My feet are a U.S. Men’s Size: 10, medium to narrow with and I need good arch support and cushioning for comfort and to take up some volume for a good snug proper fit, I am an ex-Soccer player so I love a glove like fit regarding my footwear. I where Nikes sneakers, Asolo Hiking Boots, SIDI Cycling Shoes & Motorcycle Boots, and Atomic Ski Boots. I Like the XWCU Experia Micro Mini-Crew they are great for all spring and late summer activities and are great technical casual wear as well, love the Color: Charcoal. But I LOVE the Discontinued :( XWXU Experia Wool Silk Crew, Color: Charcoal = Hiking, Fall/Winter Trail Running and Casual Awesomeness! even more because you can use them for more seasons. I where these socks in Men’s Thorlos Sock Size: 12 = USA Shoe Size: 10.5 to 11.5 and they fit perfect. I have owned and worn Thorlo’s SLW Ski Wool/Silk Socks for years they last and last. I also sold tons of them when I worked at a Ski, Snowboard & Boat Shop, that is the most important piece of gear when going skiing - a great pair of Thorlo’s, again another one of my classic favorites the SLW Ski Wool/Silk Socks have been discontinued :( I am so bummed out that Thorlo just discontinued my other favorite adventure socks :( listed below. Thorlo PLEASE bring them back!!! XSKI Extreme Ski, Color: Charcoal/Black = Skiing, Shoveling Snow & Winter Motorcycling Awesomeness! Discontinued :( XCXU-12-073 - Experia Crew, Color: Black/White = Spring/Fall Hiking, Spring/Fall/Winter Trail Running and Casual Awesomeness! Discontinued :(
