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.

    I do not have a title

    They are warm but they do not provide the cushioning I need on the bottom of my feet, The muscle pads have deteriorated and I am walking on bone. I don't know which of your products can provide some comfort for me and ones that I can get shoes on. I cannot tolerate the pain just from standing so walking is brutal. I've been told there is nothing that can be done for me. I am using a thin cusion that covers the area where the muscles were and this fits on my second toe with a loop. I think your products are great and I can see where people can find help. If there is something else you have that might work, please let me know. Thanks.

    Not for Cold Weather

    03/23/15 | By

    Thorlos similar to these that I have purchased before have been really warm. I confess I buy them for every day use not running. My previous socks have had a higher thread count and been warmer. My guess is that the thread count is not as high. I love Thorlos but not this type.

    I think these socks are great, but really wish they had even more padding in them. Thorlos, please try to make socks with even more padding for those of us with fat pad atrophy!

    great sock for elerly

    I bought these socks for my 88 year old dad in memory care. I specifically bought them because they have a gentle crew top elastic. Other socks left impressions in his skin, PADDs do not.

    Perfect socks for peripheral neuropathy sufferers

    03/22/15 | By

    I have been suffering from peripheral neuropathy for about 10 yrs (both of my feet are numb, with occasional tingling and pain), and these socks have been a lifesaver. When I have them on, I don't have that horrible "walking on sharp rocks" sensation that I experience when I am barefoot or wearing thin socks. I also love the nice compression these high socks provide for my calves -- it definitely helps with the circulation in my lower legs. I highly recommend these socks.

    Great socks!

    Over the calf, great support, stay up all day, helps keep swelling down in legs and ankles. Padding on heel and bottom of feet area in these socks greatly help reduce foot pain. Pricey, but worth the cost if they hold up well.
