Clinically-Tested Padded Socks For Feet That Hurt

NEW! Padded Foot Protection (athletic socks) for Cleated Sports Footwear: Excellent Protection for Football and Baseball Cleats

Your Feet Are Your Power Plant 

Your feet are your power plant. Every play you make starts with your feet. Regardless of your position on the field or whether you’re playing offense of defense, your feet are a personal launch pad. When your feet are compromised, everything else in your game suffers.

Cleats Are No Friend of The Foot

The rugged construction of cleats allow them to withstand a beating. On the other hand, the insoles tend to be thin, providing very little protection from impact and pressure points when cleats are worn on hard fields. Whether your foot lands on a hard spot or goes through repetitive pounding during two-a-days, you’re at risk for a sore or—worse yet—an injured foot. Sore feet are unacceptable because sore feet result in slow feet, something you just can’t risk when you’re competing for a starting position or are in the midst of a critical play in the fourth quarter or final inning.

Protect Your Feet with Thorlos Padded Foot Protection (socks) 

Thorlos® applied everything it knows about protecting the foot in the design of this new Cleated Sports padded foot protection (athletic sock). Like all Thorlos padded sport socks, the protection starts with protective padding on the ball, heel, Achilles tendon and over the toes of the foot—padding that’s been clinically-tested and shown to:

  • Reduce Foot Pain
  • Reduce Blisters
  • Reduce Impact Pressures
  • Reduce Moisture

To assure a perfect fit, the over-the-calf-length product CPOU is designed to promote circulation. A custom spandex band is sewn around the arch and instep to help prevent slipping inside your cleats.

For moisture and foot temperature management, Thorlos Cleated Sports padded foot protection (athletic socks) are made with our proprietary THORLON® yarn to wick moisture away from your foot and to maintain the resiliency of the padding from the start till the end of your workout.

No Pain Equals Big Gain

When your feet feel good you forget about them.  This allows you to put your full focus and attention on the play. As a result of taking care of your feet, you can be there completely for your team mates when the game is on the line. That’s the benefit of Thorlos Cleated Sports padded foot protection (socks). Thorlos Cleated Sports also provide excellent cushioning for turf toe.

Don't cheat your feet. Protect them with Thorlos.

Lite Padded Socks

If your feet don’t hurt during or after playing football or baseball, we recommend Experia®. These padded sport socks provide more ball and heel protection for your feet than any regular thin socks on the market. The pads feature THOR•WICK®COOL yarn, which very effectively wicks moisture away from your feet. Experia is available in a variety of colors and in mini and micro-mini styles.

30-Day Brand Promise Guarantee

Our brand promise: Your feet will feel better or your money back®!

    Best socks I have ever worn

    08/20/16 | By

    I wear these socks every day with steel toed boots. They are the only socks that I have ever owned that stay up all day long. I have worn them for 8 months and they haven't stretched out.

    wish the foot had more padding. the leg part goes over the calf like they are suppose to do and stay up all day. helps with the leg pain in the calf muscle . they also helps keep leg swelling from getting real bad.

    Truly Helpful!

    These socks are unequaled when it comes to the ability to provide cushioning without inhibiting performance. That's why I'm so heartbroken that they aren't offered in navy blue yet -- but I'm still holding out hope!!

    I wear them with boots I need them to stay up, they do that.

    05/14/16 | By

    They are socks, so, they do what socks are supposed to do. Make my boots more comfortable. They do that from top to bottom. Socks should be invisible. I put them on, I take them off, with nothing in between. I just wanted socks to stay up. This they do all day. In addition there is no painful indention at the top at the end of the day when worn properly.
