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.
…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.

My husband has been a diabetic for 45 years, so we know first hand the importance of good socks and shoes. These socks are great for his daily walking exercises.

My husband has foot problems due to nearly 70 years of type-1 diabetes (that is correct, 70 years). Thorlo Padds are the only socks he will wear because they are padded in the right places, are not binding on the ankle, and there aren't any rough seams to irritate his feet.

So far we have been very pleased with the Thorlos socks.

Got these for my 89 year old father, he said best socks he has ever owned, though difficult for him to put on by himself. Thanks

I bought these socks for my husband who complains about his feet hurting all the time. They made his feet not hurt, but his shoes ate them. I gave them to my daughter who also complains about her feet and she loves them I reordered antifatigue over the calf socks for my husband and he loves them. Rarely does he complain about his feet, legs, or back hurting since wearing the socks. I would highly recommend.
