Clinically-Tested Padded Socks For Feet That Hurt

Lite Padded Socks For Feet That Do Not Hurt

Stay Fit with Thorlos

What do you do to stay fit? Whether it’s weight training, cross training, Zumba® or other group fitness or conditioning classes, the padding in Thorlos clinically-tested padded fitness socks will help protect your feet from blisters, pain and soreness, as well as the pressures and moisture that set the stage for other serious foot conditions.

“These socks are comfortable for all activities. They keep my feet from sweating, are easy to maintain, and worth the cost.”  Dane L.

Available in men’s and women’s styles, these engineered padded socks are specially designed to accommodate the differences between men and women’s feet so that both are well protected and comfortable. Research has shown differences with respect to such characteristics as ankle circumference, circumference of the ball of the foot (greater in men) and circumference of the instep (greater in men). We take these and other differences into account when designing these activity-specific padded socks.

“I like the wonderful soft material and the cushiony feel of these socks while I work out at the gym.”  Richard W.

When your feet feel better, your workouts will be better and you’ll reap more benefits from engaging regularly in the fitness activities you love.

Thorlos Fitness Socks—Like No Other Activity-Specific Socks

Spandex around the arch of the foot—that’s the defining difference between Thorlos foot protection for fitness and Thorlos other activity-specific padded socks. That band of spandex provides support and stability—extra protection during the twisting and lateral movements that are part of most aerobic dance and other group fitness classes. Add that to moderate cushioning in the heel and thick cushioning in the ball of the foot for maximum shear/friction, impact and shock absorption—and exclusive THORLON® fiber that rapidly wicks moisture—and you have a winning combination for all of your fitness activities. These padded socks are especially beneficial if you have narrow feet—they stay in place and don’t twist around during those “cool moves.” 

Two Types of Foot Protection

Thorlos clinically-tested padded fitness socks are for you if you cross train by engaging in various sports and activities, but have experienced foot pain, discomfort or injury—or if you want to do all you can to avoid foot problems in the future. If you participate in high-intensity aerobics or other fitness activities that create high foot stress, you’ll want to wear these comfortable yet resilient and long-lasting Thorlos.

For maximum protection: Men’s XT and Women’s AX, ARX,AMX—all made with THORLON®, THORLO’s patented, moisture-wicking fabric. 

“No other sock fits, wears and holds up as well as these do. Do not even try any other sock.”  Polly P.

    Great comfort!!!

    I LOVE these socks -- I had so many pairs but they were very old and finally ordered 12-more pairs and threw out the old ones. They last a long time; are so very comfortable; these are the only socks that I wear and plan to order 12-more to keep on hand! Can't say enough about how wonderful these socks are to wear and to work out in.

    So far so good

    I ordered these (5 pairs) when we were at our place in New Zealand. I've just returned to Canada and have worn them 3 times for golf. I do like how light they feel whilst still providing the padding on the balls and heels of the feet. I'm concerned that they may not stand up to the wear and tear of golfing or hiking on a daily basis. Time will tell. Cheers.

    I love Thorlos, but hate the Experia

    | By

    I am a huge Thorlo fan. I love the products, I love the company, I love the made in USA quality thorlo delivers. But I can not stand the experia socks: There is zero padding between the ball of your foot and the heel. There is thick padding on your heel and the ball of your feet. To me, it feels like I'm walking on something all day. I can feel where the padding stops right at the arch of my foot. It's a little bit annoying and a little but painful. After hours of research and contemplation, I have narrowed down exactly what I want. I want a mid-weight padded walking sock made with coolmax. The difference between a walking sock and a running sock is in a walking sock there is padding across the top thorlo calls " shoelace protection". Unfortunately Thorlo does not make a walking sock made with Coolmax.

    Was having soreness at the ball of my foot. No more problem. When workout shoes go on so do these. Great socks.

    Best socks for very long walks

    These are the best socks for super long walks of 12-17 miles. We don't step out the door without these on our feet.

    I ordered these socks whilst in New Zealand. Your delivery process works great as I return to Canada tomorrow and the socks are already at my North Vancouver home. I will write a note about the socks when I actually wear them.. Cheers.
