Health & Wellness Padds® socks
Thorlos PADDS provide foot protection and comfort to people with diabetes whose feet are not at immediate risk of ulceration or amputation (If your feet are ulcerated or at immediate risk of ulceration or amputation, talk with your healthcare or foot health professional immediately regarding appropriate sockwear and footwear). They’re also recommended for people with arthritis or low-to-moderate foot pain and/or foot conditions such as blisters.
"I am a diabetic and your new PADDS socks are what I have been looking for for years. I love all lengths of the PADDS but I am partial to the Mini-Crews. They are so comfortable and protective. Thank you for developing them." Ann J.
In ground-breaking studies, Thorlos padding was clinically shown to reduce blisters, pain, pressures and moisture that could set the stage for serious diabetes-related foot conditions such as ulcers that can lead to foot amputation. It does this by absorbing the impact of every step you take, lessening the effects of the friction forces that are generated with more vigorous activity and keeping moisture at the proper level for optimal foot health. PADDS are part of our clinically-tested padded socks (CTPS) product line.
"For those with neuropathy in the feet, these are the most comfortable socks I have found." Terry J.
Thorlos unique padding provides dense cushioned support to cushion and protect the bottom of feet that have lost soft tissue—particularly fat pads—something that occurs naturally with time and activity. Our padding is positioned in exactly the right anatomical places to provide protection for the ball and heel so your feet feel profoundly comfortable.
Watch our Thorlos PADDS design video to see how we engineer comfort, resilience and moisture-wicking properties into every pair of Thorlos PADDS.
"These socks are heaven. They help me stay on my feet longer and get more done." Joy B.
Fitting is Critically Important to Your Foot Health
Be sure to wear your Thorlos PADDS casual socks when you shop for new shoes, and bring any orthotic recommended by your doctor or a foot health professional with you to ensure an integrated fit. See our fitting video to learn more.

Reviews for Thorlos PADDS®

Getting than on was a struggle, and wearing them for several hours a numbing experience. If they don't loosen up after several wash cycles, I intend either to exchange them or to reorder in a larger size.

I feel like I'm walking on cotton!

I felt that the padding wasn't thick enough.

Thorlo socks are wonderful. Thank you so much for giving me an opportunity to try them free of charge. That's the best promotion ever! I've tried so many different brands. But HRX is soft and the socks don't lose their shape. I'll be ording more.

I feel like I'm loving my feet. They are so comfortable.

Thorlos Padds give you back your mobility. For sufferers of neuropathy you can forget sometimes that you have it. The socks must be treated right: fabric softener when they're washed or the padding will bristle. It's just take a little care for a luxurious reward. They bring you what few things in this world do: relief.

I very much wanted to like these socks and was delighted that Thorlo offered to let me try them for $5. I was also very pleased to see they were made in the US. Alas, they did not seem to me much superior than other socks that cost a third of the price.

My mom has severe Rheumatoid Arthritis. Working 6 hours a day has become incredibly painful for her. The amount of relief just wearing these socks has brought her is absolutely amazing!
