Clinically-Tested Padded Socks For Feet That Hurt

 

*See Below for more information.

Padding Clinically Shown to Reduce Foot Pain for People with Arthritis 

Thorlos’ uniquely constructed padding has been clinically shown to provide pain relief and reduce pressures that plague feet affected by rheumatoid arthritis. If you are among the 50 million Americans with rheumatoid arthritis, you will appreciate the guaranteed benefits of clinically-tested Thorlos padded socks, with padding clinically shown to reduce blisters, pain, pressures and moisture. According to the Arthritis Foundation, arthritis—in all its forms—is a more frequent cause of activity limitation than heart disease, cancer or diabetes, and one in three people with arthritis experiences work limitations. Countless more are in constant pain.

The structural changes to the foot that accompany the progression of arthritis — e.g., joint damage, foot deformity, hammer toes, bunions — make feet vulnerable to pain and further damage even with mild impact. Thorlos unique padding acts as a protective shield against jarring impacts, which can be painful, from walking on hard surfaces as well as up and down stairs. While the pain-reduction research results were based on rheumatoid arthritis sufferers, we have a large amount of anecdotal evidence that the padding reduces foot aches and pain generally.

Thorlos CTPS Will Help You Stay Active

Arthritis often causes foot pain and other problems that severely restrict mobility. Thorlos clinically-tested padded socks (CTPS) help you stay active and function to the best of your ability. With Thorlos, your walking/mobility program—a key to maintaining function and reducing arthritis foot pain and other symptoms—will be easier on your joints, and potentially more enjoyable.  

Satisfied Wearers Say It Best

Here are what some of our customers with arthritis are saying about Thorlos CTPS:

“I have terrible feet, with many problems such as arthritis, bunions, hammer toes, martin toes and neuropathy. I am prone to blisters, calluses and pressure points on my feet. Since wearing these  socks ,my problems have been alleviated considerably and generally just feel better. These  socks allow me to do more physical activity because my feet don’t poop out on me.” John S.

 “I bought these to wear with my CROW boot AFO which I wear for my for Charcot ankle/foot. They are perfect, fit to knee and great padding on the Achilles tendon. Help my poor old worn out arthritic foot also by providing padding and wicking away of moisture.” Terri M.

 “I purchased these for my daughter, an assistant store manager for large grocery chain, when she was diagnosed with reactive rheumatoid arthritis in her feet and hands. They helped immensely during her long recovery time, which confirmed my love of these  socks. She is sold on these  socks forever now.” Regina C.

“These socks are a major comfort for my feet which suffer from arthritis among other problems. The soft, springy construction provides buffering as well as support. They are comfortable in summer and winter and are so durable that the initial cost is easily justified.” Helen M.

Recommended Products

Every person’s arthritis manifests differently,  so it’s not possible to recommend an “arthritis sock” per se. What you can do is identify where your pain tends to be, and how your daily and recreational activities impact that pain. Then you can choose the right clinically-tested Thorlos for you.

If you need:

Ball – Heel Protection:  Clinically-tested Thorlos PADDS will protect and cushion the bottom of the foot.

Ball – Heel – Instep Protection:  Thorlos clinically-tested padded walking socks will protect and cushion the bottom of the foot, and provides extra padding protection for the top arch area of the foot.

Ball – Heel – Top-of-Toe Protection: Thorlos clinically-tested padded tennis socks will protect and cushion the bottom of the foot and the top of toes…provides extra toe protection for those with moderate/severe hammer toes.

Ball – Heel – Achilles Protection:  Thorlos clinically-tested padded basketball socks will protect and cushion the bottom of the foot…provides extra padding from the heel up through the lower Achilles tendon.

    Not for me

    I liked the socks, but they were not as cushiony as the basketball socks I usually get from you. I thought I might like the shorter "lighter" socks for the warmer weather - but no, back to my favs!

    I can walk without pain

    | By

    I am 70 years old, weigh 340 lbs (I'm 6'1") and have diabetes. The pads of my feet have been thining with age and walking has become uncomfortable. I have used Thurlo socks with success for decades so I thought I would try the socks they designed for problems like mine. I also purchased a pair of Brooks sneakers designed for my problems that they named "the beast". The socks combined with the shoes did the trick. Walking is much more comfortable now. If these new Thurlo socks are half as durable as the ones I' be been wearing for so long I will recommend them without reservation. Great socks.

    These are the very best socks. I highly recommend them.

    I have worn Thorlos socks for about 15 years and I have really enjoyed them. I have extremely narrow feet ( 4A and 5A ) width shoes. I never did have a lot of padding on the bottom of my feet. As I have aged , I have lost even more padding . I can't always find narrow width shoes my size, but I do the next best thing. I wear SAS and New Balance shoes with my Thorlos. They give me padding for the bottom of my feet and they help take up the extra space in my shoes. I discovered that the Padds are not only thicker on the balls, but also thicker on the heel. I will buy these when I need more. The're Great.

    Good choice for diabetics with neuropathy.

    | By

    I have Multiple Sclerosis and diabetes, and moderate to sever foot pain is an almost daily occurrence due to the ravages of these two diseases which destroy nerve functions.. Clearly, good high-quality socks are paramount to foot comfort, and Thorlos socks are very comfortable--amongst the best I've tried. And I can honestly say that I've tried most of the brand that are advertised for diabetic patients. Most of those brands were disappointingly inferior. But the Thorlos socks are so comfortable, and I will certainly buy additional pairs. Sadly, I am only able to afford one or two pairs at a time, but I will continue to be a long time consumer of your products!

    Comfort at last!

    My husband took advantage of the Free Pair Offer and got a pair of these for me to try. My feet are crippled from arthritis and walking was painful. These socks provide some degree of relief when worn alone around the house or with shoes when I go outside. The Thorlon fiber provides amazing padding in the soles yet is not bulky in any way. I would definitely recommend these socks to others with my condition
