Clinically-Tested Padded Socks For Feet That Hurt

Lite Padded Socks For Feet That Do Not Hurt

The Importance of Your Feet 

Your feet are incredibly important when playing golf for two simple reasons:

  • Every swing begins with your feet, and
  • The game is more enjoyable when you walk.

And that’s why we took Thorlos engineered padding and created the GX, GMX and G Thorlos golf sock.

The Feet: The Foundation of Your Swing

The famous professional golfer Mickey Wright—whose swing was admired by the legends of the game such as Byron Nelson, Ben Hogan and Tom Watson as having the best swing of any professional golfer, male or female—says:

“Every great swing begins with a good grip and the correct  use of the feet…that is the working of the weight back and forth across the inside of the feet.”

Mickey entrusted her feet to Thorlos clinically-tested padded golf socks (CTPS). In a tribute to their importance during her career, she had a pair of her Thorlos placed in her USGA exhibit. Mickey is the first woman to be honored by the United States Golf Association (USGA) Museum, joining Bobby Jones, Ben Hogan and Arnold Palmer--the only other honorees.

Thorlos Clinically-Tested Padded Golf Socks Protect Your Feet

Thorlos clinically-tested padded golf socks (CTPS) were designed for feet that hurt during or after a round. They utilize clinically-tested padding, which starts with THORLON® acrylic yarns specially spun to maintain softness and resilience as well as to better wick moisture (foot perspiration) away from your skin. The testing has shown that Thorlos padding helps reduce blisters and reduce (buffer) the pressures that are created from the approximate five miles of walking and the weight-shifting during the swing required by the game.

Properly protecting your feet is no different from protecting your hands with gloves, your eyes with sunglasses and your skin with sunscreen.

Walking Beats Riding (except on Rainy Days)

Walking becomes a joy with Thorlos CTPS golf socks. Besides reducing blisters and pressures, Thorlos padding has also been shown in clinical research to reduce foot pain and aches, and moisture. When you are walking, you get to enjoy all the beauty of the course and the company of the three other people you are playing with.

Golf was meant to be a walking sport. Thorlos help make that possible.

Rolltop on a golf sock

The Rolltop Golf Sock

Thorlos CTPS golf protection comes in GX crew, GMX mini-crew and the G rolltop, which the company originated and for which it was one of the company’s original patented designs. It was designed at the request of Cynthia Sullivan, who later became a four-term president of the LPGA. She asked for a sock that would not come above the ankle but would stay up. Short socks of the day just would not stay up. She said it was a continual distraction to be constantly pulling her socks up. So the G Rolltop was designed. It would stay up all day and with the clinically-tested padding, it provided protection and comfort.

Curious but not yet convinced whether Thorlos CTPS can help you address your foot pain? We invite you to try your first pair free…just paying shipping and handling.

Caring For PGA Tour Caddies’ Feet

All caddies, fitness trainers and any interested players are given the opportunity to a have a free foot screening conducted by Jerome Gallenstein (Thorlos on-staff Certified Pedorthist) and a fresh pair of Thorlos CTPS.

Try Thorlos padded golf socks for 30 days. If you don’t agree that your feet feel better than when wearing regular socks, we’ll refund your money.

Employee Favorite 

“I love my ancient leather-soled golf shoes. The “G” rolltop has great padding on the ball and heel area to make my shoes feel like new. It also allows me to keep my tan line at the top of my golf shoe. The extra fabric that makes up the rolltop protects my ankle from the rough leather on the top of the heel of my old golf shoes.”  Jeff Lawson, Analytics

    Good Gym Socks

    04/24/16 | By

    I got these because I wanted some thinner gym socks than my current ones, and these were an awesome choice. Padding in the ball of the heel and the toes, I don't tend to run, but for a ten minute warm up jog, they did amazing in that department too, not just for weight lifting. It says it's not recommended to wear these if you currently use the medium to heavily padded socks from Thorlo, which, I wear the medium padding for my work crew socks, but I haven't noticed any bad side effect. Nonetheless, these are amazing all around gym socks. I would totally get another pair if I needed one.

    Fantastic Running Socks!

    I have recently resumed running after a bout of cancer last year and these socks are wonderful! They have enough cushion to absorb some of the pounding, but not too much to make then feel squishy or soft. Fantastic!

    Most lightweight (decent padding though) and snug out of all the Thorlos varieties I've tried.

    These socks are nice for walking, but they are really hot. Supposed to have cooling properties, but not so for me. Also, I've only worn them 4 or 5 times, and they are already coming unraveled.
