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.

    So Awesome and Comfortable!

    | By

    I've always enjoyed nice, cushy socks and discovered Thorlo sports socks years ago for playing racquetball. Once I started using the Thorlo I never had any raw, blistery or any foot problems from sports activities, and actually was an advocate for them with my regular group, especially when they groused about foot problems. I didn't think much about other styles of Thorlo's until recently when I learned of this sock. I’m so glad to have found this sock style so I can use them for non-sports use. Now, if they would only have them in a dark brown color, too, utopia!

    Good for Sneakers

    These are good socks for low cut shoes such as tennis or running shoes. If worn inside boots they tend to slide down and bunch up around the toes. I prefer the MPT1100's for wearing in boots. They stay pulled up and still have adequate cushion.

    Great for bad feet

    | By

    Two podiatrists and a primary care physician cannot diagonse my problem, so I decided to live with it. These socks make it possible! They stay up well without cutting off my circulation, and they cradle my sore feet so that I can do things again. Wish they came in colors other than black & white.

    Near Perfect

    | By

    These socks did not disappoint. The material was very comfortable and thick. The construction was top notch. I didn't "feel" the socks which means they seemed like they were part of my person instead of an addition. As I stand for an 8hr day, I love me some quality socks!
