Clinically-Tested Padded Socks For Feet That Hurt


Don’t Let Cold or Needlessly Wet Feet Spoil The Hunt 

You plan for months and reserve a few special days for the trip. Don’t let achy, cold, wet or uncomfortable feet distract you from the hunt—or worse, send you home early. Whether you’re stalking or hunting you need to take care of your feet. In the winter, keep your feet warm and dry; in warmer weather, keep them dry and cool. Thorlos has the answer, no matter what the conditions.

“I’m tellin ya what, these are the best socks ever, it’s fun to wear them, I have never had a pair of socks that were so comfortable. I will never be without my Thorlos.”  Rodney K.

Clinically-Tested Padding for Protection & Comfort

Thorlos clinically-tested padded socks (CTPS) for hunting have been designed for feet that hurt during or after a hunt and to help prevent any foot conditions from occurring in the first place.

How?  Engineered padding that has been clinically-tested.

Thorlos places padding where you need it:

  • padding in the ball and heel to protect against  shear, friction and impact forces
  • padding in the ankle, shin and instep to protect against boot pressures
  • thin padding in the arch for a better fit

Thorlos padding ensures profound comfort for your feet and a fit that assures your CTPS don’t fall down or bunch up in your boot.

“These socks strike me as actually "constructed" with thought and care.”  William L.

Thorlos clinically-tested padding has been shown in independent research to reduce:

  • blisters
  • foot pain
  • pressures
  • moisture (the catalyst for a variety of foot conditions, including wet feet)

“These socks are unparalleled in fit, comfort, and durability. Perfect.”  Joshua V.

Foot Protection For Every Weather Condition

There are three different styles of Thorlos padded hunting socks, because the wrong socks mean cold or wet feet, sore painful achy feet, and usually blisters. 

Extreme Cold Padded Hunting Socks (HEOU)

For sub-zero hunting conditions. The padding features Thorlos exclusive wool/THOR•LON® blend for maximum warmth and superior wicking. The toe area is made with 100% worsted wool for maximum warmth.

“Best socks for cold weather, 8 degrees outside now.”  Harry S.

  “These and my Irish Setter hunting boots keep my feet warm in -40 F(C) weather tracking through snow.”  Rob M.

“I recently purchased a pair of the extreme cold socks for hunting. I can tell you that these socks were designed with cold weather in mind. Very comfortable and warm. Price wise they are a little higher than that of other cold weather socks, but they are worth the money!”  Mike H.

Cold Weather (TF)

For moderate-to-cold weather hunting conditions. The padding features Thorlos exclusive THOR•LON® for superior wicking.

“I now own about every sock Thorlo makes. They truly are the best quality socks made. I am able to wear a pair of boots (high dollar) that were giving me blisters. The socks truly make the difference.”  Andrew S.

“I just got back from hunting mountain goat in BC, hunted in these socks in the snow and very steep terrain for 7 days and never got cold feet or blisters.  Ken W.

"My feet always got cold even with low temp rated boots. I was out in 28 F weather for 5   hours and my feet stayed warm!”  Julie S.

Warm Weather (TFW)

For warm-to-hot weather hunting conditions. The padding features Thorlos exclusive THOR•LON / THOR•WICK®COOL fiber blend  for superior wicking.

“The only sock I wear hunting. I hunt often during the heat of the Texas summer. I never have to worry about my feet!”  Paul G.

“These are not just socks. They are fine adjustments to any foot wear. Between using different thickness insoles (Superfeet) I am able to adjust my hunting boots so that they fit perfectly. And my feet don't sweat even in 90 degree heat. Thank you so much for developing these!”  Duane L.

“These are great socks PERIOD.I bought these for an upcoming Sheep Hunt in the Brooks Range and if you depend on your feet you should depend on Thorlos.”  Dennis D.

Curious but not yet convinced whether Thorlos CTPS can help you address your foot pain? We invite you to try your first pair free…just paying shipping and handling.

Because of the demands placed on the foot needs during a typical hunting trip, we recommend that you wear only our clinically-tested padded socks (CTPS), not our Lite Padded Socks (LPS), for this activity.

30-Day No-Risk Brand Promise Guarantee

Try Thorlos for your next hunt. If you don’t agree that your feet feel better than when wearing other hunting socks, we’ll refund your money.

“I have been impressed with the quality of the socks, a little more expensive but worth it.”  Deron L.

    Best socks for all around outdoor use in California

    Feet don't get sweaty and they don't get cold. Plus with the extra cushioning in the right areas, they are comfortable all day. If they last as long as my last Thorlos lasted, through years of weekly machine washing, then I can rest assured that my money was well invested in my foot comfort.

    My son has a plumbing business and loves these socks! I have worn Thorlos for many years and decided to order some as Christmas gifts - now they are requested!!! For the working men in my family, Thorlos are perfect! The socks stay put, have an excellent wicking system and are comfortable all day long.
