Fitness Socks

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.

    Fantastic socks for many, many miles of running. I have been wearing these socks for years and I will not wear anything else for working out. Now I have my daughter wearing them too!! (this is getting expensive!!)

    While not listed as running socks first on the website, I ordered 6 pair because I could not remember what running store I had found my original two pair in. The only socks I want to run in. So excited to have discovered color choices (my first pairs neon yellow).

    best socks - for walking / workouts & golf

    I have been a fan of Thorlo socks for many years......recently I stumbled upon the XCCU after having purchased a couple of new pairs of walking shoes (New Balance). What initially attracted me to the XCCU's was the amazing assortment of color choices / combinations. They left no stone unturned and covered the entire gamut of color matching both my walking and golf shoes. After an initial misstep in receiving the wrong size (which customer service resolved within 2 days to my door), I received my order which was 17 pairs (2 for the wife). As you can see I have many different shoe options to choose from.......a perfect marriage when picking out a color match of shoe / sock. They look great, feel great, and are exactly what I expected, and more. Kudos to Thorlo for offering an out of this world assortment. I will no doubt be back for more.

    I never realized that socks could make such a difference when working out, but a friend insisted that I try one pair and see the if I noticed any difference....needless to say. I am writing this review telling you that I love these socks!!!

    My feet felt fabulous. No hot spots or blisters...and they don't slip down at all. I would definitely buy them again.
