Clinically-Tested Padded Socks For Feet That Hurt

Protect Your Feet With Clinically-Tested Thorlos PADDS

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.

…my feet feel great all day. I wouldn't ever think of having any other brand of sock in my sock drawer! Well worth a little extra cash, especially since they last almost forever! Craig P.

American Made Craftsmanship

All Thorlos are made in the USA.

"I will never own another pair of socks other than Thorlo. They are comfortable, supportive, and durable."  Aimee B.

    Not for me

    | By

    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.
