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.

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.

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

    Absolutely the best golf socks

    06/25/16 | By

    I purchased these after my regular socks were allowing me to get a blister on the heel of my foot. At the time, I didn't know it, but my Mum also sent me some FJ socks to help as well. I'd play the Thorlo's over the FJ's every day. They are that good and comfortable. When I first got the Thorlo's, I thought they were kinda cheap looking. But looks are deceiving. I've worn them several times and they aren't showing any signs of fraying. They FEEL AMAZING and protect my feet very well. It's like walking on clouds. They don't slide down because the roll top WORKS. My FJ's just slide down and I have to constantly hike em back up. If you are on the fence, get the Thorlo's. You won't be disappointed!

    Two Week Hiking Trip

    06/24/16 | By

    I purchased 3 pairs of the XCXU Experia sock for my Badlands, Rushmore, YellowStone, Tetons hiking trip. I wore the socks multiple times over the course of 2 weeks letting them dry out every evening. No blisters, no hot spots total comfort! The socks held up very well without washing and just rotating them every day. Each pair of socks has probably 50 miles on them and they still look good.

    Feel like walking on carpet. Would be great for summer if thinner body version is available without sacrificing the thick support for the soles!

    All the Thorlo I've had were well made and lasted. I don't expect these to be any different.
