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.

    Comfortable but so poorly made!

    | By

    So, these socks are well padded and comfortable to wear but the quality is probably the worse I've ever seen in a sock. It really looks like the socks are unfinished or they just took a long sock, cut it short with a pair of scissors and mailed it to me. There's no real border or stitching to define the top of the sock, it's the same as the body of the sock, so because there's no elastic or anything at the top, they tend to slide down past my ankle. Also, I ordered a smaller size than I would normally wear for my size 10.5 shoe and they still bunch up, slide around and want to slouch and fall off my ankle if I'm walking a lot. For the money I paid, these socks should be top quality, and they just aren't. I won't be ordering them again.

    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

    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!
