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®!

    Live up to my expectation!


    I have soreness in my body in general, including my feet and calves. I got these socks to have more paddings for my soles and support for my calves. They do the job very well. I did a 1.6 miles brisk walk without any problem. These socks are comfy. If they are priced less, I would buy more.

    I do not like them


    I have ordered several of your socks before, but I do not like these. I thought they would be like the basketball socks that I ordered a year or so ago. These are way to small and I ordered size 13. I am very disappointed. I liked the basketball socks.

    These socks were made for my feet.


    With my foot conditions these socks are perfect for me. I was on kidney dialysis for almost one year During that period of time and during all the years that I was type-1 insulin dependent diabetic, took a major toll on the soles of my feet. I lost all the padding on the bottoms of both feet, leaving me with a very painful condition when walking or doing just about any sport involving my feet on the ground. I love walking and hiking and these Thorlo cleated socks have all the right protection in all the right places. Thanks Thorlo for creating a sock just for my foot type and the type of malady that I suffer with. R.B.

    Socks are ok....


    Socks are comfortable. I bought the scarlet color and I would rather have the padded areas match the color of the sock. On the scarlet socks the padded areas are black and I would like them to have been red so the entire sock matches. The black stands out and does not look good on the socks. The black socks are fine as the black in the padded areas match... not so on the scarlet.
