Clinically-Tested Padded Socks For Feet That Hurt

Lite Padded Socks For Feet That Do Not Hurt

Foot Protection is Our Game

Regardless of how often or how intensely you snowboard, with Thorlos, it’s all about protecting your feet. We focus on protection with our engineered padding so you can have as much fun as possible.

Our clinically-tested padding is put precisely where you need it:

Calf padding: protects lower leg from boot pressure and shearing forces = more comfort

Ball and heel padding: protects against shearing forces = more comfort

Shin, instep and arch padding: lighter padding for better fit = more comfort

“These socks were amazing! Kept me warm, dry and comfortable when I boarded 4 days in a row, 8hrs each day!” Kyle M.

Thorlos CTPS: Comfort Fit for Recreational Boarders

Recreational boarders by definition don’t get out on the mountain very much. The last thing they want is their feet to hurt or get cold. Thorlos SNB clinically-tested padded socks (CTPS) for snowboarding provided more protection than regular snowboarding socks and will keep you comfortable and out on the snow. This padding has been clinically shown in independent studies to reduce blisters, pain, pressures on the feet and moisture. They also were designed to provide a comfortable fit with rental boots for boarding on easy-to-varied terrain.

The more dense padding in the SNB is an excellent choice for women in particular, as a woman’s foot is usually smaller in the ankle and has a higher instep than a man’s foot. The ankle padding and spandex arch support are perfect for these anatomical differences, ensuring great protection and the best possible fit. Warmth is assured by the use of a blend of THORLON and wool yarns.

“Gave as a gift. She wears them every time she goes snowboarding.” Meredith C.

In the end, more protection equals more comfort, which means you can snowboard to your heart’s content.

Thorlos LPS: Performance Fit for Competition Boarders

For experienced boarders and those who race or are competitive freestylers, we make our XSNB performance-level snowboarding socks with lighter protective padding and less protection. At this level, you want absolutely no “slop” inside your boot so you can cleanly and quickly transfer your foot actions to the edge of the board. You need a Lite padded sock (LPS) that doesn’t get in the way, yet protects in a way that complements professionally fitted boots. This is our XSNB—where the X is for extreme.

We use a blend of THORLON® and THORWICK® in our thin-padded XSNB snowboarding sock for superior wicking to keep your feet dry because a dry foot is a warm foot. THORLON maintains its resiliency so the cushioning will last all day long.

“The Thorlos snowboarding socks were so much better than others I bought at a board shop because they stay up, don't bunch up in your boots and really keep your feet warm and they are soft, not like itchy wool.” Linda S

Brand Promise Guarantee

Try Thorlos padded snowboarding socks with no risk. If you don’t agree that with Thorlos snowboarding socks, your feet feel better than when wearing regular snowboarding socks, we’ll refund your money.

    Keep warm


    Do you work in a factory with cold cement floors in the winter? Try wearing these socks in your safety shoes/boots. No more cold feet! Stay warm and toasty no matter how cold those floors are. Great for inside winter boots for long walks with the dog as well. Best solution for cold feet that I have found.

    He loved them!!!


    I gave a pair of these to one of the guys at work who loves to snowboard. When he came back from his snowboard trip, he was so excited to tell me that "they were the best socks he's ever worn!" He said they stayed up well, kept his feet warm and he was not as fatigued when he finished for the day. Pretty sure I made you a new customer for life! Great socks

    Great work sock!


    These socks actually fill a dual purpose. I work in a food warehouse, mostly in the colder places and I found that these snowboard socks fill the bill for warmth and also hold up super inside of my steel-toed boots. The second advantage is the support that I get from these socks and at 69 years old and on my feet most of the day, my legs are as good as a person half my age.

    Great for working 12 Hours in 36 degrees.


    Spending 12 Hours in 36 degrees and sitting on a forklift for 6 hours out of the 12 with not a lot of movement these socks are great at keeping my feet warm. My feet sweat a lot and it is hard to find socks that keep your feet warm and dry even in such cool temperatures.
