Clinically-Tested Padded Socks For Feet That Hurt

Thorlos: The Original Western Boot Sock

Thorlos got its start creating a padded sock to be worn in western boots or cowboy boots. Jim Throneburg, the founder and owner of THORLO, met a gentleman who operated several western product stores in Tennessee. After Jim told the store operator that he designed padded socks as functional solutions for specific problems, the store owner asked Jim if he could solve a problem his customers were having. The problem was that in a western boot, in order for the person’s foot to make the “turn” at the heel, he had to give them a size or two larger than their dress shoes. When they stood up and walked around, their heels slipped around in the boots, which was very uncomfortable. People may have loved the way the boots looked, but they didn’t fit properly and weren’t comfortable. The result: lost sales.

After lots of discussion, Jim came up with the idea of an engineered padded sock with an extra- thick heel pocket that would allow the foot to make the turn, but would then fill up the space, making the foot feel both secure and comfortable. This became the first padded sock designed specifically to be worn with a western or cowboy boot, and THORLO was awarded two US patents for them. Justin Boot Company first marketed the padded sock and together both became “standards” in western boot wear.

“I would recommend these socks to anyone looking for comfortable dress socks to wear with cowboy boots.”  John L.

“I’ve tried all brands of boot socks but none of the others compare to the Thorlos. They are awesome!!!!” William T.

Protect Your Feet With Thorlos Clinically-Tested Padding

Thorlos western boot socks will help protect your feet during Western events, equestrian events, everyday casual wear and on the ranch (for cowboys)--and they work in both traditional and fashion boots. While originally designed for fit and comfort, the clinically-tested padding used in the heel and in the ball of the forefoot has been clinically shown to reduce foot pain and pressures. The padding is knitted with proprietary THORLON yarn that has superior moisture- wicking properties (moisture/perspiration is a catalyst for blisters). The padding also has been clinically shown to reduce blisters. Wearing Thorlos clinically-tested padded socks (CTPS) for western boots is an excellent way to help prevent foot conditions; they are exactly the padded socks you need if you currently experience foot discomfort or pain when wearing boots.

“For months my boots were killing my feet. I blamed it all on the boots. Tried these Thorlos Western Socks and no more sore feet even after being on them 12-14 hours! I love these socks and just bought several pair to give to my friends! Thank you Thorlos!” Maureen M.

“I used these socks along with Thorogood Boots and it solved my foot problems. These high quality boot socks along with proper fitting boots eliminated all the issues. I now wear these socks every day.” Roderick. M.

“These are without a doubt the best socks I have ever worn. They are so comfortable and do not fall down into your boot.” Judy L.

“These have the best cushion in the right spots. These are the only boot socks I'll ever buy.” Dawna S.

Thorlos Stay Up – All Day Long

Thorlos CTPS are also designed to stay up all day long and not wrinkle at the ankle. Being boot lovers ourselves, we know there is nothing more aggravating than having to constantly pull up your socks. This is never an issue because our western socks are made with spandex in the top portion.

“Wearing boots for over 30 years and pulling up my socks was a pain. I found these socks in a western store and bought 1 pair then went again and got 2 more then I ordered 5 more. These are the only ones I will wear in my western boots, have never had to pull these up because they stay up.” Norman B.

They are available in two styles:

            Style TWD The original designed for Western boots.

            Style TWW Designed to be worn with Lacers and Roopers.

“I only wear Thorlos socks. I just bought some Justin Ropers and needed boot socks terribly. So, I bought 2 pair of western dress socks. Yep, they really do stay up all day long. I love them and they are not too tight at the top.” Kathy L.

    "new" design?

    06/09/16 | By

    I wore a couple pairs of these out as dress up socks with my suits. I was really upset when they dropped the brown color. Needed a new pair, got knee high instead of mid calf like old, but that is ok. Still need something for my brown suits.

    In the past I have purchased both hiking and western dress socks for comfort and support. Another reason is they are of very good quality.

    Make great horse riding socks and all around boot socks

    06/02/16 | By

    I bought these for using for horseback riding. They give the great support one has come to expect from Thorlo socks. I used them while wearing my rubber muck boots. Normally, I can't wait to get these non-padded, no support boots, but when I wore them with these socks, I was so comfortable and my feet were so happy, that after 2 miles of roadside pick up (picking up trash along the highway) I felt great! I came home and continued working around the farm with them and my feet never complained. Great product! Great service!

    not the same socks I had been getting

    05/27/16 | By

    I reordered the same socks I have always ordered and Thorlo has changed them. They now have an uncomfortable lip on the top. They had always been smooth and would stay up all day.

    Hoped for better

    03/31/16 | By

    The socks were nice the first time I wore them, but they turned pretty average after the first time through the wash. I wear them with Justin boots that are snug and they are OK, although they do slip down off of the calf occasionally. I tried them with Ariat Roper boots that are a little looser and the socks don't provide enough cushion and slip more frequently. I won;t purchase these again.

    Best socks to wear with western boots

    03/23/16 | By

    They feel great. They have a cushioned sole and are super comfortable when I wear my boits. They are longer than I thought as they go above my calf but it is because my calves are not very big.

    Western boots to nurses feet!!

    03/05/16 | By

    I bought the Western over the calf dress socks. I was amazed at the softness but especially the cushion. Shortly thereafter my wife whom has been a nurse for 35-years was commenting that she wished she could find cushiony socks? I ordered her 2-pair of the Thorlo over the calf Western dress socks. She said they are abosutely the most comfortable and supportive socks she has ever warn!! Happy wife....happy life!!! Thank you. Thorlo
