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.

    I have arthritis in a number of joints including my feet and hands. These socks are truly amazing as they provide comfort for the joints in the foot, easy to put on (especially if you have arthritis in the hands), and do not bunch up like some socks. I highly recommend these socks.

    I have neuropathy (constant pain) in both feet and ankles, these socks are awesome, they are not tight around my ankles and they are soft and warm. My feet are constantly freezing, these socks provide soft warmth. I love these socks, if you can't have anything tight around your ankles, try these. If your feet are cold, try these. If you like comfort, these socks!! They are awesome

    Simply, the best!

    I have permanent deep vein thrombosis/swelling in my left leg that requires blood thinners. My cardiologist says I should wear compression, non-binding socks "more often than not" to prevent dangerous clot migration.These socks are by far the best combination of both top-shelf athletic footwear AND perfect compression I have ever worn. And they're less expensive and better cushioned than any nylon compression dress socks at the drug store. Aside from the significant medical benefit to me, they just feel fabulous and energize my aging legs! I'll be wearing them for life......

    I bought these socks for my diabetic husband. He loves them and wears them to work every day. If we get behind on laundry he wants the socks done in the first load. Guess I need to get a few more pairs!

    These socks are comfortable but not so superior to other socks to warrant such a price
