A Great Way to Get & Stay in Shape
There’s no doubt about it: walking is the safest, simplest form of exercise that can help you trim your waistline and improve your health. The problem is, sore, tired, achy feet can keep you on the couch. That’s where Thorlos clinically-tested padded socks (CTPS) for walking can help. They’re specially designed for walking, with padding clinically shown to help protect your feet from blisters, pain and soreness, as well as the pressures and moisture that can cause other serious foot conditions. The result: feet that are protected, profoundly comfortable and ready to go walking tomorrow.
“I wear orthotics and my feet need to be cushioned. These socks don't bunch up and keep the sock smooth so the bottom of my feet don't get sore.” Kathy G.
So it becomes easy to take a brisk half-hour walk five days a week, which is all you need to meet US national physical activity guidelines. Do more—more time, more distance, more intensity—and the benefits to your heart, cholesterol levels, blood pressure, weight and mood increase exponentially.
“Love my new magic socks! Like walking on air and they stay put, too. No sliding down into my shoes.” Gaye P.
|While incorporating Thorlos hallmark ball-and-heel padding, Thorlos clinically-tested padded walking socks are lighter in weight to make your walks effortless. These incredibly comfortable socks also have a unique feature: added spandex in the arch for support and a lace pad on the top of the sock to protect against “lace bite”—the pain and irritation caused by laces cutting into your foot.||.|
|Women who are into distance walking will want to try our most protective walking sock, the DWMXW, made with our proprietary THORLON yarn. These socks have a compelling story behind them. Originally, they were designed specifically to meet the needs of women committed to participating in the Breast Cancer 3-Day, a 60-mile walk benefiting Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the National Philanthropic Trust (the event is now known as Susan G. Komen 3-Day). Learn more about our Breast Cancer Donation Program.|
Our design philosophy is all about protection from the shearing forces that cause blisters and from the pounding and impact that cause general soreness and foot fatigue, If 3-Day walkers wore Thorlos, we reasoned, they would enjoy their training more and, as a result, they would be more prepared to enjoy the special experience of walking with thousands of new friends. So the THORLO Company not only became an official sponsor of the event, we designed a new padded sock for distance walking and named it HEROs®in honor of the women who have battled and are battling breast cancer and the women who will wear them while they walk for the cause.
“I just finished walking in my third 3-day, 60-mile walk for breast cancer. This is also my third year wearing Thorlos WMM socks. They are like heaven on my feet! I couldn't have made it without these socks.” Tonya M.

If you don’t experience pain during or after walking and prefer padded socks with both maximum comfort and an even lighter weight, try our Lite padded socks. Choose from four different styles, all made with THOR•WICK®COOL.
- Men’s Thorlos Thin Padded Walking (LWXM, LWMXM): Features Lite engineered padding in the ball and heel as well as lace pad to protect against shear and impact forces common in walking.
- Women’s Thorlos Thin Padded Walking (LWXW, LWMXW): Features Lite engineered padding in the ball and heel as well as lace pad with a smaller heel cup and toe box to accommodate the anatomical differences in a women’s foot for an optimum fit.
- Everyday Walker (EWH): Just like our LWMXW but with pink ball and heel pads to signal your support for the fight against breast cancer.
- Experia®: Features a lighter, more sculpted version of our engineered padding in the ball and heel to protect against shear and impact forces. Experia provides more protection and comfort than regular thin cushion socks.
Longer Walks, More Enjoyment
The benefits of walking go beyond physical health. Regular walks at a more leisurely pace allow you to decompress and contemplate, especially if you’re walking in nature. Walking is also a terrific social activity—easy to do with family, friends and pets! Thorlos padded walking socks will keep your feet off your mind, allowing you to walk longer while enjoying the environment and the camaraderie.
“These socks are unbelievable. I no longer have friction in areas that used to make me sore or create blisters.”George L.

“Purchased them specifically because I was going to spend three consecutive days in Disneyworld with my daughter and granddaughter. My feet say ‘thank you.’" Eileen L.
”My feet used to hurt or get hot after a long walk when I wore ordinary socks. Since I’ve been wearing Thorlos clinically-tested walking mini crew socks, my feet no longer hurt! Thorlos provide sufficient padding, comfort and protection, but not too much bulk. They also keep my feet dryer and cool, which I like.” David McBride, Marketing
Reviews for Thorlos WALKING

The WX socks are amazingly comfortable. I recently wore them for an extended period of time during which I would usually have comfort issues and experienced no such issues. A truly amazing sock.

Thorlo socks have extra padding at the ball of your foot and in the heel area as well, making them ultra soft and comfortable. I try to walk at least 10,000 steps every day and these socks have made it easier to reach my goals! Check them out....you won't regret it!

I think the pad on top does a great job of protecting the foot from the laces yet does not extend to parts of the foot where it is not needed. I have some I have worn for a year or more and the support cushion on them is still comparable to the new ones I ordered.

The black socks are larger than most so it is easier to draw each over the vascular hose underneath, and the more difficult part, easier to remove each. The bulk serves as a cushion and do not feel warmer than others. I plan soon to get another pair.

I like how they feel on my foot, especially in the arch area.

As long as it's not over 70 degrees or below 30 degrees and if I purchased new shoes, the answer would be great! When I filled out the pre-purchase survey, it never occurred to me that I would receive such thick socks. I have been walking about 12 miles per week in various countries for 2.5 years in the same style of Keen shoes. I purchased the shoes while trying on less thick socks - such as Smartwool type which aren't so padded. I didn't try these Thorlos until it warmed up here in Colorado. On our first really warm days of 2015, the socks felt too uncomfortable and moist while walking. Now my shoes are a bit stretched out and the socks padding feels good with no problem of blisters. We used to wear this type of padded Thorlos for hiking and wore them until they no longer padded. Thanks for giving me the chance to use the DWMXW. Would appreciate a solution that is not quite so thick.

I have fibromyalgia and foot neuropathy. My feet and ankles cause me pain long into the night. I can tell a major difference when I have worn these socks vs. others. My feet still burn and hurt but not near as much. Not to the point of wanting to cry. I ordered 4 more pair to keep me going. I don't want to be without the DWMXW again and they feel so great I don't want to try any of the others. They give true cushioning.

These socks make your feet feel very comfortable in a running or walking shoe.

I walk a couple of miles a day and my feet didn't hurt and were really comfortable when used these socks.
