Reviews for Thorlos 84NRCM
best socks i've ever worn!
05/13/15 | By Derek R.
i really like the arch support. never had that in a sock before. padding's great. i thought these were the shorter roll-down socks but the comfort and feel make up for that. i wear these for bicycling and will still get the roll-down socks. again, best pair of socks i've ever worn. thank you, thorlos. i've been buying and wearing thorlos for many years and wear them almost exclusively. i'll agree with another review on here that online ordering is much better than in store. limited quantities and styles... thank you very much. i cannot recommend this product more highly. fantastic!
Extremely Padded Socks
04/28/15 | By Greg L.
These socks feel great but are so padded that i cannot wear them. My shoes do not fit with these socks on. I would need 1.5-2 size bigger shoes. Unfortunately i cannot buy all new running shoes.
Really solid sock
04/27/15 | By Chris M.
My feet are very comfortable, and the pads are the best I've experienced on Thorlos thus far. The ONLY reason I didn't give this a 5 is because the sock comes up just a little too high at the ankle. I prefer the cut of the Experia better, but feel that this sock provides more cushion and softness of the Experia. If you could combine the height of the Experia with this sock, it would be completely perfect for me.
best socks ever
04/27/15 | By Chuck S.
Awesome for runners
04/26/15 | By Kunal K.
The padding is just fantastic. I am hooked !
Best marathon/ running sock on the market...
04/25/15 | By Bill V.
Right thickness, great quality...excellent for marathons. Just ran Boston; no blisters this year.
Great socks in many ways !
04/25/15 | By Curtis E.
This sock is soft with lots of conditioning, were it needs to be. Light weight in other areas.
Feel Great Running In These
04/25/15 | By Gene S.
These socks are fantastic. They fit your feet perfectly and provide exceptional cushioning.
04/25/15 | By Patrick C.
So far...the best socks I've tried for running
04/25/15 | By John D.
I haven't been able to run multiple times in these socks, but so far, they are the best socks I've found for running.
My feet love you
04/25/15 | By Gregory H.
Best socks I have ever owned. Only ones I will buy from now on
Good running socks
04/21/15 | By Darrell L.
These socks help to lower the impact on my joints when I run. I'm considered to be obese, BMI charts. So, I need all the help I can get. I'm working to shed the extra pounds, ~45 so far, a long way to go.
VERY COMFORTABLE SOCKS
04/20/15 | By Naoya T.
I am used to wearing thin, dress socks. I wore these for daily around the house and also walking my dog. I was surprised how comfortable they are.
Great socks for running or when you plan to be on your feet for a long time.
04/18/15 | By Darrell W.
very comfortable and great padding
too much padding for me
04/17/15 | By Michael Y.
I feel that they are to thick
04/16/15 | By Laura G.
Nice padded sock for running. Sturdy and washable too.
Good replacement for the discontinued Level 2 roll-top
04/03/15 | By Michael G.
I have run in Thorlos since the early 80's and found the Level 2 roll-top to be almost perfect for my needs. When Thorlo discontinued that product I shopped many other sock companies but could not find a replacement. The 84Ns are as close to the old socks as I have found.
What a difference!!!
04/02/15 | By Gene M.
I feel much more relaxed and my running form has improved.
03/26/15 | By Michael H.
The socks creep down my foot. I have a size 14 foot. The docks are not big enough. Maybe for a 12.
03/23/15 | By Raymond D.
Great arch support and cushion
03/22/15 | By Gary S.
Running on air!
Better than the LRMXM-11
I like these socks better than my old LRMXM-11 Thorlo's. The padding is much thicker and seems to be holding up well with a week of use. I thought the colored band circling the foot arch area was a support but it's just cosmetic. I have decently high arches and over long runs my arches start to hurt so having more support would be awesome.
Best ever, no others match these.
Great for Trail running
I am grateful a friend told me about these socks. These socks have been the best and have helped provide much relief when I am trail run. Highly recommend for pain, rehabilitation and overall comfort.
best socks for running
03/15/15 | By Troy G.
Good But I like my older ones better.
03/15/15 | By Ted S.
I feel ok.
Love them socks
Awesome! These feel great and sturdy.
Amazing. Thorlo makes the best socks in the world.
Good for all day comfort
03/14/15 | By Michael B.
i usually like thinner socks for running and working out, but for a day of walking and work they are great! Love the fit, cushioning, and all day comfort.
Very supportive and comfortable.
Great socks for all sorts of wear!
The cushioning and the dryness I feel when I have these on superb. There will be many good miles of running to be had in these socks.
03/11/15 | By Norman L.
Very comfortable cushioning.
These are super comfortable socks that will make your feet feel better whether you are running or just bumming around the house.
Good regular socks but not Experia
03/11/15 | By Tom D.
i am a huge fan of the Experias so I figured I'd try these. They are basic, average socks with a bit more padding. Not worth the premium price. Experias, however, are worth the money, and they get my highest recommendation.
03/09/15 | By Thaddeus D.
Great running socks
03/08/15 | By John B.
I love the comfort of these socks, especially in the harsh midwestern winters. They also work well in shoes that feel a little wide, making the shoe fit better (less heel slippage).
Great for everyday
03/08/15 | By Helmuth M.
It feels like extra cushioning for my feet which gives me great overall comfort and support when walking.
03/08/15 | By Brian C.
once I finally got used to them I was actually very impressed with the socks
03/07/15 | By Edward Y.
Thorlos are really the real deal. I just starting walking/running. I was wearing regular socks (big mistake) while exercising and would get massive blisters. That is until a friend recommended some Thorlos.
Never received the socks
03/05/15 | By Jeremy L.
never received these socks even after checking with the post office. I will always wear Thorlos but will not buy them online again. Best sock company around.
great running socks
03/05/15 | By William T.
very thick in the right places, my feet don't hurt when I wear them...
Cushiest socks I've ever ran in
03/02/15 | By Seth F.
Super soft, intense cushioning, nice shape that hugs your foot
Ran a 5K in them
02/28/15 | By Julie C.
Excellent cushioning! Very comfortable.
Use for running
02/28/15 | By Thomas H.
Comfortable, cushioned and durable
02/27/15 | By D A.
Its funny these came in the mail for me and my son is like hey what are those? I explain what the difference was with these and normal socks. He was like hey I need to try these since I stand on my feet most of the day. Well that was last I saw those socks. He really likes them. Thank you!!
Great comfort for long-distance runs
02/27/15 | By Ross J.
I'm impressed with the quality and fit of these socks. I've worn them on several long runs (8-12 miles) with success. They keep my feet drier than do regular athletic socks, even after arduous trail runs.
Uncomfortable in the middle
02/25/15 | By Marc C.
Didn't like the feel of the "middle support."
02/19/15 | By Will B.
I love these socks. I won't run with any other socks from now on.
very comfortable sock
02/19/15 | By Steven O.
These socks are very comfortable as far as cushioning is concerned. However, they are so cushioned that it almost increases my running shoe size.
02/16/15 | By Edward F.
Socks were great
02/11/15 | By Cindy H.
I was leery to try a new sock. I was having problems with toe blisters after long runs ( 10+ miles). After wearing these socks, I have had no issues with blisters. Great Sock.
Best socks for a more comfortable ride.
02/08/15 | By Floyd S.
Theses socks are great if you want or need just a bit more cushion than the shoes provide.
Best socks for running
02/06/15 | By Dan M.
I will not run with any other sock. Thorlo's have been my go-to for over 15 years.
Provide great cushioning
02/05/15 | By Dennis D.
Socks are great even when shoes off
02/03/15 | By David N.
Lots of cushion.
My first experience with 84NRCM
02/01/15 | By Manuel R.
These are terrific socks, no make that outstanding socks. My feet have never experienced the support and comfort while running that they do when I wear a pair of Thorlos. I admit that there are other brands of running socks on the market but I have found none that match the comfort and support found in these socks. These are not clothing items but running tools. I truly enjoy them!
02/01/15 | By Arik E.
I only ran one time with the socks, they are soft and good for running, a little thick, but good with the extra padding. i would run in them again.
01/31/15 | By Jeff P.
very thick and comfortable. i got too big a size so not good to run in..
01/30/15 | By Joseph M.
I feel lighter, and more comfortable with each foot strike.
I save these sock for my long run day. Love em.
01/30/15 | By Paul G.
Like i don't think about my feet.
Performed very well in recent 10 mile road race
01/29/15 | By Emil W.
The 10 mile race started with a temperature of 16 def F and it was windy. 90 minutes later it was still below 20 deg F. My feet stayed comfortably warm even though I ran in mesh-topped running shoes (sneakers). I enjoyed the lush padding in the heel and toe area. I did not have any problem with blisters, which have bothered me for years in thinner socks in races this long. Since these Thorlos are short socks (no ankle cover), during the race I wore cut-off cuffs from old throw-away socks, and that worked fine for me. It would be great if Thorlos made a full ankle-covering sock with this thick padding, but they do not offer such a product.
These socks are worth a try for .... almost any runner having foot problems.
01/29/15 | By Gary L.
Just by putting these on, you can tell Thorlo is not just "blowing smoke" about their socks. These things feel amazing on my feet. They did not solve the problem for which I tried them out (rubbing on inside ball of right foot after longer runs), but I don't care.. I'll still use them for running. I immediately recommended my dad try some to relieve his plantar fasciitis and I think he wore them for 4 days straight! hahaha Great socks, give them a try and support a North Carolina company!
Great for the long runs
01/29/15 | By Ray K.
Love my thorlos. About all I use especially for half and full marathons. And they last forever.
I love these socks for running.
01/29/15 | By Larry K.
They are thicker in the right areas for comfort.
Not a good fit for me
01/29/15 | By Matt P.
Socks are so thick at the heel and toe - Makes my shoes feel too small. The socks also slide in my shoes.
Fantastic support and comfort!
01/29/15 | By Suzanne B.
The comfort and support of these socks is key to a long run. Plenty of cushion without too much thickness. Highly recommend these socks for any serious runner.
My best pair
01/29/15 | By James C.
These are the best cushionEd socks i own, of any kind,work,play or performance
Wear these all the time, not just for sports
01/29/15 | By Barry C.
Like walking on a pillow. Very, very comfy!
Like Running on a Cloud
01/29/15 | By John M.
These are the best running socks I have used. Nicely padded in the heel and toe area. They do a good job of keeping feet warm without making them sweaty. You won't be disappointed with these socks.
extremely comfortable for all day generally active people
01/29/15 | By Robert paul H.
Plenty of cushioning
01/29/15 | By Kurt R.
Good fit and comfort. Only issue is when I put them on the top material looks so thin that I will tear through it (has not happened just looks that way).
The perfect running sock!
01/29/15 | By David B.
My first time to use them and I will definitely be switching over! The comfort and cooling is ideal. I haven't had any hotspots or blisters in the first 30 days and my longest run in them has been 15 miles. Very pleased and look forward to stocking my running sock drawer!
Best socks for running!
01/29/15 | By Tom W.
These socks are super soft and comfortable. Love the extra padding and the breathability. Whether running outside (even in the chily winter air) or inside on the treadmill, these have become my favorite running socks by far!
01/24/15 | By Kevin M.
good for three mile runs or less, too thick for longer runs
01/24/15 | By Bj W.
Great until I put shoes on, after which the cushion is too thick. Nice sock for short runs, but too thick, sweaty for longer. Prefer smart wool.
Great sock for running and general comfort
01/23/15 | By Ricardo V.
When I bought the socks, I thought it was all hype. Once I wore them to train with I found I was wrong. Getting ready for a half marthon and these socks save my feet. Next up is a full marthon and I will be wearing Thorlos!
01/22/15 | By John B.
First pair of these and I love them! Extra cushion provides great comfort.
lower cut than I like.
01/22/15 | By Arthur A.
The top of these socks are lower cut than I like. They are very low cut, almost sockless look. I prefer quarter socks, The ball and heel have a lot of padding and the top is well ventilated. $5 for a trial pair is pretty expensive. The regular price of $13.99 is out of the question.
very nice socks.
01/22/15 | By Chris H.
These are nice and cushy on the bottom and thin and airy on top. I took them out for a 2 mile test run and ended up going 4 miles.
The ball of my foot was very sore
01/22/15 | By Steven H.
I don't wear them anymore and have passed them up in the stores when I bought better socks.
extremely comfortable socks
01/22/15 | By Mark G.
Use these socks exclusively for running and they are the most comfortable I've worn. They are thick, & might impact shoe sizing, but the comfort tradeoff is worth it. Do have issues w/ plantar fasciitis and the Thorlo's are more comfortable to run in than some Feetures socks I have which have extra support for the arch of the foot
01/22/15 | By Rick H.
I like the excellent padding in these socks.
comfy until I start running
01/22/15 | By Robert J.
The socks fit well and feel comfortable, but when I start running, they seem to shift around quite a bit. I would be concerned to wear them for long distances, as the friction from the movement may cause blistering. They need to fit tighter or have something that makes them adhere better to the foot.
Don't waste your money!!
01/22/15 | By Cassandra W.
The socks seemed like they were falling apart from the moment I got them. It seems as though the top of the socks weren't even finished. I have washed them twice and you can already see right through them throughout the middle of the socks.
Super comfortable/great cushion.
01/18/15 | By Jerri S.
Great socks with extreme padding-
01/16/15 | By James e. W.
My only issue I had with these socks is they are a little Too thick. Which makes for a very tight shoe fit and thus causing the foot pain that these socks are meant to to relieve.
On "YOUR" feet all day
Where is spell check when you need it?
Best socks if you are on yoru feet all day!
The 84NRCM socks are terrific for those of you that have to be on your feet all day. Lots of cushion and last a long time. I bought enough to wear them once week and they have lasted a year and a half...and counting. Worth it for your feet.
01/06/15 | By John C.
I have used the Therlo Expedit sock for years and like them very much. I tried the 84NRCM and found them to very thick with lots of cushioning. However when I compare the 2, I prefert the Experias
Best socks for running and walking
12/21/14 | By Gil B.
The socks make that shoes feel good.
I love these socks
12/17/14 | By Walter B.
I wear them all the time. They are so very comfortable. I wear them to work out and also just to hang out. My feet feel great.
Comfortable walk, insure for runs
12/14/14 | By Adrian A.
They are very comfortable walking around in. It almost feels like too much padding at the moment.
12/12/14 | By Vic L.
supportive and confident
Size runs small
12/12/14 | By Martin C.
12/12/14 | By Joel G.
Not thrillled, not enough cushion for bottom and heel ofmy foot, and should have ordered a little higher sock above ankle.
Best socks for jogging I have had
12/12/14 | By Paul A.
12/12/14 | By Angier W.
Faster than Michael Johnson. These socks seem to run a little bigger than the older version, at lest for me.
Just too thick for running
12/11/14 | By David B.
Echoing others' comments - these are cushy and soft socks. But they are so thick that the admonition that one must get larger shoes is absolutely true. I don't really feel like buying new sneakers just so I can comfortably wear these socks, so they will be relegated to loafing around the house shoeless.
12/11/14 | By Diane M.
I gave these to my son who is a dentist & runner although he has now quit running. He wore them while working & loved them.
Beware The Size If Used For Running
12/08/14 | By Jeffrey bub J.
Don't get me wrong, these feel like nice socks. The ridiculous part is the tag actually says you should buy shoes bigger so you can fit these socks into them. They weren't kidding. When I wore them with my running shoes that I've put 500+miles on, they felt snug but not uncomfortable. After a moderate 8 mile run, I removed my shoes to find the toes of the socks soaked in blood. I've never had my toes bleed so much! It's amazing these socks had this effect. I'd never buy another pair since I'm not going to buy new shoes just to accomodate them.
My new favorite socks!
12/08/14 | By Rafael E.
Comfortable. I'm 215 pounds and can run a half marathon in these socks without ever getting a blister.
12/07/14 | By Josh F.
I just love the thickness of the ball and heal with the perfect thin compression for the arch. These are great socks!
12/07/14 | By Trey G.
These socks are very comfortable, however they have one issue. If you plan on wearing with your current shoes beware.....you might need to go up 1/2 size. I can squeeze my foot into my current shoe, but since these are thicker than most socks I usually wear my shoes are very snug.
12/06/14 | By Wayne T.
Warm for the Winter Socks
12/05/14 | By Khang L.
I have been using the Thorlo brand for 8 years since discovering them in a running magazine. These socks are by far one of the best socks I have owned. I still have the original pair from 8 years ago. The wear and tear on them are noticible considering that I use them for extreme running. They still have the support I bought them for. The recent pair that was given to me by Thorlos are still in great shape. These socks can take a beating and are made to last. They are my specialty socks when I tackle anything extreme.
New favorite running socks
12/05/14 | By J D.
Very cushiony on bottom of feet, but still breathes well. Holding up well so far after 3 months of wear. Definitely my sock of choice for longer runs now that the weather is cold.
Good comfort and fit. Horribly made.
12/05/14 | By Al S.
I got this and from hearing about all the buzz could not wait to try. I used it ONCE with 2 houir run and when I took out my shoes it almost looked as if it will fall apart. All th threads seemed worn. I looked at the fit information and adjusted my socks but even the cheapest socks dont fall apart and show wear this quickly.
excellent right out of the package
12/04/14 | By Theodore C.
I have been wearing Thorlo socks for running for years. These are a great upgrade to the ones I have been using, which are about four years old now but still give great cushion.
One of the Best
12/04/14 | By Eric L.
These are some of the best running socks I've ever owned.
Great work socks!
12/04/14 | By Carol O.
Warm and fuzzy all over! These socks are really durable. It's the only sock I wear.
Good but the XCCU is the best!
12/04/14 | By Jj H.
Good but you have to try and wear the XCCU
Ran 26.2 with them
11/29/14 | By Kevin F.
Socks are soft and cusioned, the reason I bought them. I do get the draft people mention at the top of the foot occasionally, but my feet always get hot so it's a plus in my book. Great idea giving a free trial pair out. Probably wouldn't have tried them If not. Now I'm a long time customer.
For golfing too.
11/26/14 | By Santos G.
Total confort and support! Besides using them for running, I use my socks during my round of golf.
Best socks I've ever had.
11/25/14 | By Thomas C.
I bought these socks to wear in my first race. I trained in them and they felt good but I never ran the full distance of the race I was going to run. I ran the half marathon (13.1 miles) with them and finished fourth in my age group (62-65). All my muscles were sore but my feet felt great! This was such a surprise since my feet are prone to be sore and tired. I will never wear any thing other than Thorlos when I run. These are absolutely the best for running.
Great running sock
11/24/14 | By Skyler B.
There socks feel great when I run. My feet are cushioned and I feel like I can do more without discomfort.
great and comfortable
11/22/14 | By Robert K.
Great and comfortable
11/21/14 | By Jonathan C.
I have several pairs of the Thorlo Experia that I usually run with but thd 84NRCM ones I received have more cushioning. They are very comfortable and perform better on longer disgance runs than the Experia ones I have. I will be getting more of these for sure.
Nothing like them!
11/21/14 | By William B.
These are the only socks that enable me to run long distances. I am very thankful I found these Thorlo padded socks - I plan to use them for my first marathon in January.
good for cycling in hard sole bike shoes.
11/20/14 | By Robert W.
good, but the micro cuff is smaller than the mini crew cuff i got at the store. the ones at the store felt and looked better.
11/20/14 | By Gary C.
i've used thorlo for years. this is the best version thus far. I've ordered 4 more pair
New to socks
11/18/14 | By David G.
These add the right amount of padding for running. Make sure and wear them when you buy new shoes and these might bump you to a new size.
Great Running Socks
11/17/14 | By Donald N.
Great Socks. They fit exactly like advertised. Nice, easy to wear and good on the feet. Recommend them to anyone. Keep up the good work!
Padding where I needed it
11/15/14 | By James R.
Best socks I've ever used. Will buy again.
Best socks for comfort and cushion
11/14/14 | By Daniel S.
These socks do not stretch out and bunch in my shoe. They stay snug, so it wicks away perspiration and I do not even think about my feet till I get home. Then I realize the socks really did a great job, cause my feet sweat a lot. I also like the value, they last a lot longer than a cheap sock, that gets holes and falls down. If a person has foot problems, this can be one of the best experiences towards foot comfort and eliminating foot problems. Dan S Rochester NY.
best soxks i ha e ever owned
11/13/14 | By Scott B.
I have a heel spur and for the first time in a while my foot did not hurt after running. Awesome socks!
11/13/14 | By Richard D.
Nice socks. I may have purchased the wrong size as I prefer the higher coverage of a mini crew around the ankle. I am willing to try another size to see if the 84 will cover the ankles. Feet stayed dry and were very comfortable. I normally wear smartwool PhDs and these were very similar in comfort minus the ankle coverage. Richard D.
Great comfortable, cushioned ride.
11/10/14 | By Jim J.
Love Thorlo socks! In fact my dog Scout loves them as much as I, although he doesn't run in them. He just loves the cushy feel in his mouth. For me, they feel great when training or running in a race. They give me an extra amount of confidence when I am running a 5K race. Great socks=a great race!
11/09/14 | By Jerry L.
11/09/14 | By Keith F.
I am a store manager for a major sporting goods company. I have been an avid seller and wearer of thorlos for about four years now. And I have brought them into my family. I use them for everyone in my family from my diabetic mom, my sister with vericose veins, and even my dad wears a leg brace. The snowboard socks work great to reduce the chaffing on his leg. This is such a great brand and they make great product. Also made in USA. Thanks for the amazing merchandise.
11/08/14 | By James E.
Unfortunately, these socks are just too bulky to fit inside my running shoes. I'm sure they are comfortable, but there are useless to me because they are so thick.
great from first run
11/08/14 | By Theodore C.
Wore them for the first time today during a short run, little over 3 miles. Great from the first step to the last.
Nice fit..very hot
11/06/14 | By Jason H.
Comfort level is great, but they are very hot for Florida running. I noticed my feet sweat more with these socks.
i dont run without these now
11/03/14 | By Jeremy W.
The title says it all...whenever the free pair that I got wear thin, I'll definitely be coming back for a purchase.
Great socks for running
10/31/14 | By Sanford M.
The socks are very comfortable for running and I think they will actually extend the usefulness of my running shoes.
Great sock-does the trick
10/31/14 | By Bob B.
Privides the foot poretction I need, and I like the option to have a Thorlo in black.
Excellent Pair of Running Socks
10/31/14 | By James J.
The quality and comfort is excellent. I have worn Thorlos for many many years and the quality is the same or better now as it was then. I never worry about blister regardless of the number of miles
Thought they would be to big.
10/31/14 | By Ronnie C.
Most of my running socks are much thinner and I was quite skeptical they would make my shoe to tight. Pleasantly surprised and what a comfortable, soft, cushioning feel. Not sure about race day but for the long slow runs they are my go to.
Nice, but pricey.
10/29/14 | By Jason S.
These are very nice, but I'm sure they're worth the extra cost versus alternatives.
good cushioning, not too thick
10/26/14 | By Matt A.
These socks provide good cushioning on the bottom, but the top is very thin to reduct bulk and promote cooling.
greatest running socks
10/23/14 | By Sergio G.
i was looking for running socks bought these and the nike running socks . i like these a little better because of the cushioning . i run on pavement and have experienced some knee pain in the past and have not recently will probably buy more soon thanks
very comfortable but....
10/20/14 | By Richard B.
I wear these for running and the extra padding helps. The one thing is that after washing, the socks look like they are starting to shed. That makes me wonder how long they will last.
Too thick for my feet
10/20/14 | By Martin P.
The socks are well made and ideal for those who need or like lots of cushion. My feet are wide, and the shoes available to me do not have room for my feet with the added volume from a thick sock, especially in the plane of my metatarsal-phalangeal joints.
Great socks for long idstance running!
10/20/14 | By Jacob M.
These socks are great for long distance running. They offer great padding in the forefoot and heel and wick moister like no other. Also, the socks are effective keeping grit out with the tight band around the ankle. Great pair of socks.
10/20/14 | By Pat C.
Thorlo makes great socks. The 84NRCM does not have quite enough elastic at the ankle. They are brand new and feel like they are drooping. Nothing beats the feel a Thorlo sock inside a shoe.
Only socks I wear!!

Thorlos have been so good I am afraid to try any other socks. AWESOME PRODUCT!!
Excellent socks -- light weight, great cushioning in heel and forefoot, good arch support
10/19/14 | By William S.
These socks are fantastic. They have good cushioning for the long runs in the place I need it most --- the heel and the forefoot. There is good arch support in the elastic through the middle of the sock. And they are very light weight.
10/18/14 | By Jay B.
Very good sock
10/17/14 | By John P.
The padding on the bottom is a bit much for me, but there is nothing wrong with the socks by any means! Fit well, and like the title says they are very comfortable.
10/16/14 | By Kent S.
Comfortable with great cushion.
Good but not great
10/16/14 | By Katherine S.
I have another pair (my first pair of Thorlos) that must be a different style. I do not like these as well. Both provide cushioning in the heel and forefoot and support around the arch. These just don't fit me as well despite being the same size as my other pair.
Great socks for working out at the gym, running or walking.
10/16/14 | By Tom M.
Perfect for me.
10/16/14 | By Andy H.
These are my new favorites. They're incredibly comfortable and help recovery. Very well thought out design. I would highly recommend them to any runner of any distance.
10/16/14 | By Galen M.
very comfortable very cushioning not too thick to shoes
If feet could smile!!!!
10/16/14 | By Montreal W.
My feet feel a lot better while I am running and after my workout is done thanks to my new Thorlo socks.
Feel great, but...
10/14/14 | By Adam P.
Socks are really well made and feel great but they're too thick to wear with my running shoes.
Makes My Feet Happy!
10/11/14 | By Glenn G.
Ran 5 miles first time I tried them on and my feet loved them! Never found this version of socks before, but will definitely look for them now. Most of my running/sport socks are Thorlos; started about 10-12 years ago while still Active-Duty military.
best socks to run
10/11/14 | By Gerardo V.
I used them for the first time running my half marathon, very comfortable and my feet felt great after the run.
10/09/14 | By Jeromy R.
These were a bit thicker than the socks I had been using, making my running shoes a little more snug than I was used to, but after just about 1/4 mile of running on the treadmill I totally forgot about them (and that's a good thing!). Not a single issue with them creaping down or bunching up and I've run a bunch of miles (treadmill, road and trail) with them now. Love these socks and WILL be buying more!
10/09/14 | By Ken M.
I ran my first 5k in Thorlos and was comfortable throughout, they are my favorite pair to run in; I plan on ordering at least a couple more pairs!
Great for Crossfit
10/09/14 | By Yonatan G.
Outstanding soxs for Crossfit. Great padding at the forefoot (ball of the feet) and the heel.
Only use for running
10/09/14 | By Dan F.
The top messhy part seems very thin, therefor I don't want to wear them out not running.
Good cushioning, but I find them a little thick.
10/09/14 | By William C.
I am used to using a thinner sock, maybe I should try a different model
good walking around house and for shoes
10/09/14 | By John vallejo V.
my dirst time to uses socks from this company. at first I thought the sock would fall apart after a few washings. but they have not and are breaking in very nice. my feet run hot and sweet alot in shoes. the pading only were it is needed and airy rest of the sock works great for me
Makes me want to run more
10/09/14 | By Zachry W.
Helps cushion my feet better than my original socks. My feet are now less sore after a long run and much drier. I would def recommend these socks to all runners who hate sore feet!
10/09/14 | By Kris R.
I bought these socks for my son for cross country. I have used Thorlo socks for years, but this is his first pair. He loves them. Initially, he was put off by the "cushiness" but once he had run in them he was sold!
I really like them!
10/08/14 | By Steve C.
Unfortunately I lost one of the pair, so I will be buying more soon
Fluffy and Hot
10/08/14 | By Kevin M.
I have a couple pairs of Thorlo running socks that I bought from Campmor and they are great. I love running in them. I got these new 84NRCM socks for free through the offer on the Thorlo website. I have run in them 3 times (and washed them three times) and have found that they are very hot. In addition to being very hot the loose knit at the heel and toe seems to get snagged very easily. As a result one sock is already coming apart at the ankle. Lastly the toe and heel of the socks are extremely fluffy, which makes my shoes feel tight width wise.
10/08/14 | By Christian M.
easy on the feet
10/08/14 | By Bill H.
This socks have been a pleasure to own. I can be fussy about how well a sock is made. Many hype color or style but don't always fit well or feel good on the foot. From the moment I put them on I felt the quality and excellence in the workmanship. As a bonus they also illiminate the need to wear double socks in the cooler weather.
10/06/14 | By Wendell K.
These are winners. The best running sock that I have ever put on my feel. Very comfortable and well cushioned.
Great running socks
10/03/14 | By Keith B.
These socks are the most comfortable I have worn in some time. Great support in the arch and great padding too. Have thoroughly enjoyd wearing them!
Thorlo is my new running sock
10/03/14 | By Russ B.
The socks I bought are second only to the micro thins. The 84NRCM are a bit thick to rank as #1, but still beyond comparison to any other running sock I've ever tried over 20+ years of running. I'm looking forward to trying them for hiking some time.
10/03/14 | By Zachary S.
I need to get some more, these are great!!
Great cushioning for running
10/03/14 | By Adam C.
Socks are well constructed with ample amounts of cushion in the heel and toe areas. Elasticity in the arch of the foot and around the ankle hold the socks close to your feet. One of the better made pairs of socks for running on the market. You won't be disappointed in getting a few pairs.
Best socks hands down!
10/02/14 | By Thomas P.
I've had almost every brand of socks and none come even close to the comfort and durability of thorlos. Highly recommended to anyone who does a lot of standing, running, or walking. Other socks just don't stack up against the mighty thorlos!!
09/29/14 | By Darryl M.
These are not your traditional socks, whether I wear my Thorlo socks when relaxing at home or running around the track they are extremely comfortable to my feet.
Great running socks
09/29/14 | By Donald H.
Really lovin' these socks. Lots of cushioning and a big help for putting in a better time.
Very comfortable socks
09/29/14 | By Tosin M.
I got these socks during the promo and have employed them when I run. They are lightweight and have a unique desgin wih thicker layers around the frontal part, over the toes and heels. At this point, I can only replace like for like.
I wouldn't use these for running or walking.
09/27/14 | By David F.
Socks are ok, but they just don't appear that they'll hold up over time. The top elastic and threads are already beginning to unravel and loosen up to the extent that the socks slide down into my shoes. They are comfortable to wear around the house without shoes...and that's what I will use them for. Don't think I'll be buying another pair...so sorry thorlo.
Adequate cycling socks
09/26/14 | By Kenneth c R.
Where the Thorlo Pads (toe and heel) connects to the other fabric is failing after one wearing.
They could be good if they fit.
09/25/14 | By John P.
I like the feel of the socks but they are about one half size to small. They want to slip off my size 15 4e foot.
Best Orthotic Socks for Running
09/24/14 | By David A.
I've searched around for socks that have lots of extra padding in the most critical areas (balls and heel) to help reduce/eliminate plantar faciitis, and Thorlos 84NRCM are by far and away the best on the market; I've been using them for about a year for distance running and triathlon competitions, and these are clearly the best. Can't recommend them enough!
Better than advertised
09/22/14 | By Jeffrey S.
Just finished the Full Air Force Marathon in these socks. Not one mark on either foot. Not even the start of a blister. Amazing.
My favorite running socks
09/21/14 | By Mark M.
Very nice socks: very comfortable and supportive! Thank You.
Red and black thorlo men's sock
09/19/14 | By Sandrea D.
I like the sock for the cushion on the heel but not for running. I like my shoes light weight which means a thin light shoe. The sock took up whatever space I had in my shoe and made my feet feel constricted. I'm sure there was a better pair to try but this is what was suggested and it didn't suit my needs very well.
He loves them
09/14/14 | By George O.
Got these for our son who is a runner in the hopes he would have a better time with his feet. He just loves them and will be getting more so it paid for the free ones.
Absolutely the most comfortable socks ever!
09/13/14 | By William M.
While training for my first marathon I started looking for maximum cushion for my joints. I was training before work then going to my manufacturing job where I'm on my feet all day. My running gear lady pointed me to Thorlos, now I wear them all of the time! Thank you Thorlos for a great product made in the USA.
These socks rock!
09/12/14 | By Randy S.
I answered all the questions on the website and got fitted for the issues on my feet. Although I have not run a long route yet, the first two 5-mile runs were very comfortable. Can't wait to run a half Marathon in these. Need a little bit more experience before I can say these are the answer to all my foot issues.
These socks are so comfortable!
09/12/14 | By Patrick R.
These socks are the best! My feet don't feel hurt or feel sore after my run. I will buying several more of these.
09/11/14 | By John C.
I like the cushion that the socks provide. It helps ease foot pain. I recommend it.
Long Run 15m +
09/11/14 | By Markus M.
Great socks for long runs - living in Florida- it is hot - they get wet at mile 10 but that is made up by their comfort. I defiantly us them for mileage runs and will us them in the NYC Marathon. For shorter runs I use the Thorlo's Experia.
09/08/14 | By Tim C.
I've wore the socks for four races. Third overall in a marathon, 2nd overall in 10K, 2nd overall in 3.3 mile race and first in a 5K. FAST SOCKS!!!!
09/08/14 | By Brad C.
It took several weeks to get around to it, but I finally put these socks to the test. I had planned on a different make of sock for this race, much lighter, but within a few miles the my Nimbus 14's were rubbing my heel raw, so I stopped, pulled these out of my backpack, and ran the rest of the 100-mile race in them. My feet did extremely well. These socks are warm, but the protection to the heel and forefoot areas kept me from having to endure nearly any discomfort over all those miles of asphalt and gravel. This sock is unlike any I have ever purchased, and I'm at a loss as to how to describe it. It is very thick in the forefoot and heel area, covers the ankle well (very little debris got into my shoe). Part-wool and part thin wicking fabric, that is the best I can do. This sock saved my race this past weekend; I highly recommend this product.
09/07/14 | By Daniel H.
Lots of padding. Great for long runs.
09/06/14 | By Larry L.
Great socks. Very comfortable. I wear them to work as much as I run in them.
Tightens up the toe box
09/04/14 | By David B.
The socks are very comfortable, with the padding in all the right places. The problem I have using them, is it makes the toe box of my running shoes just a little tight. I stepped back 1/2 size on my shoes, which makes them perfect with a lesser sock, and i have a better stride with the current size. I will use the socks on shorter runs, and I am reasonably sure that they may lose just a touch of their bulk. If I went back that 1/2 size, it would work well. It's interesting the difference in socks.
Loved them so much I drove to the factory store!
09/04/14 | By Andrew S.
I started to have some foot issue for the first time. Researching led me to the fact I was probably wearing the wrong socks! I can tell you these socks and the science/research behind them are awesome. I made the ride to the factory store, met some highly knowledgable folks there and loaded up . Please don't change!
Use for running
09/04/14 | By Dennis P.
Probably the best running sock I have ever owned.
09/04/14 | By Casey B.
I love these socks. I had no idea about the Thorlos brand until my girlfriend introduced me to them. I wear them every time I run or even sometimes just to be comfortable around the house and I am never disappointed! I would highly recommend these to a friend! Of course it would be easier if I had a few more pairs to wear around!!
Great socks for a hurting foot!
09/04/14 | By Mark D.
I've worn Tholo's for years, but I have always bought the basic running sock. Your website recommended the 84NRCM, and they are the best! The moment I put them on, I knew this was a different kind of sock! Thanks.
comfy hug for your feet!
09/03/14 | By Robert D.
Great socks super soft and comfy, and don't hog shoe space. Was holding off on review to see how well they held up. So far doing great. Worth the price. Product proves you get what you pay for!
Great for running
09/02/14 | By Stephen K.
These socks provide super protection in the typical hot zones while running. Very comfortable. I will buy more.
Great For FEET!
08/30/14 | By Thomas M.
I am a large man who runs for about 45 minutes per day and often bought new shoes to try to make my feet feel better during and after my runs. I saw some information online and decided to try a pair of Thorlos Socks. WHAT A GREAT IDEA. After getting my pair, I wore them for the first time and my feet felt great throughout my run and for the rest of the day as well. I have worn them many times since and my feet feel great during and after every run. I have to get 6 more pair!
Very good socks
08/28/14 | By Rob M.
Stopped blisters and already bought two more pairs
a great update on a great sock
08/28/14 | By Matt P.
I have always like Thorlo socks and these are a nice update. Always improving.
Good running socks
08/28/14 | By James S.
I think the thickness of the sock adds a good amount a cushion, but warmer weather contributes to more sweating, which in turn contributes to more foot movement in the shoe. while running.
Too much toe padding
08/28/14 | By Dorrell H.
These socks were sent to me for black toe protection but caused sore toes on a 12 mile run. There is no need for cushining in the toe area. Most people do not run on their toes. The reason I suffer from black toe is because most socks fit too tight in the toe area and the fabric catches on the toenails at every step and pulls back on them. My only releif is from ultra thin socks that are one to two sizes larger that my reg. socks. giving no pressure on the toenails. Padding, Lycra,and any other inovation that makes the sock fit close to the toes is a big deficit to preventing blood blisters under the toenails. No one seems to get this and I am having a hard time finding socks that work for me.
My favorite Running (and hiking) socks ever.
08/25/14 | By Eric B.
First time my feet dont ache after a run or long hike. They are very comfortable. Thorlos are the only want for running!!!
Socks feel good.
08/22/14 | By Harry R.
The toe box and heel are exceptionally thick compared to other athletic socks that I've worn. At first I thought they were going to be hot because of the design. However the top of the sock and arch area are see-thru thin, allowing them to really breathe. There is no doubt that they help in cushioning your foot as you run. The 2 stripes that wrap around the arch area, give you a pronounced feeling of support. I would highly recommend these socks and will be purchasing a few more pairs.
Best socks I ever wore. Cheaper than changing running shoes and a better result!
08/21/14 | By Anthony S.
I loved these. Used to wear the experian thorlo but this is better
Thorlo is my favorite
08/20/14 | By Jerry P.
Thorlo is my favorite sock brand, but the product I bought was bought because I could not find the style in a 13-16 size that I wanted.
08/19/14 | By John J.
I had some blisters and these socks let me keep running and heal up.. No more blisters since using them!
great sock for golfers who carry & feet hurt
08/18/14 | By Larry C.
need all white ones too
08/15/14 | By Jairo C.
Very comfortable and cushiony. A cut above the rest for sure!
Not The Sock For Me
08/14/14 | By Brian V.
It's a nice comfortable sock, but it's not for me when I'm on a long run. I got a blister on both foot. I usually wear the nike anti-blister socks running and have never gotten a blister from them. Do you have anything closer to that?
Trying to adjust to the thickness
08/14/14 | By Roger W.
I am used to running in some very high quality Brooks running socks, and I really love them. I do really like the Thorlo's, but after about a month they are still a bit uncomfortable, as they have simply added quite a bit of 'bulk' into my running shoe. I am hopeful that my foot will adjust and I will eventually love them for their thickness...not quite there yet. Rog
08/13/14 | By Philip M.
These are the best socks I have ever put on my feet...and that is 60 years worth of sock wearing!
08/11/14 | By Jeff W.
I thought these were going to be too thick until I put them in and ran in them. They were comfortable and did a great job not feeling soggy even after an hour in high humidity and 90 degree heat.
Absolutely perfect running socks!
08/09/14 | By Patrick Y.
"Don't leave home without them"
08/07/14 | By Elliott A.
I have been a runner for a number of years and discover THORLO socks five years ago and would not run in anything else. I own several different iterations and usually by two pair of each at a time knowing how they "make my feet happy."
08/04/14 | By Greg C.
Was waiting to slide these on - felt great on my heel, toe, and mid-foot. Stayed firm in my sneaks and really supportive on the road. Nice wicking ability kept feet feeling dry and comfortable over a long period.
Great All Around
07/31/14 | By Johnathan N.
These socks are great for tons of different things. I've hiked in them, run in them, played basketball, football, and ultimate frisbee in them. They are also good for just walking around or normal day use. Well worth the money for em.
07/30/14 | By Chase K.
I wear these routinely during the weekend and they're comfortable, cool, and so durable. Glad I bought them!
Delivered with defect
07/28/14 | By T M.
I purchased these socks and they were delivered with a visible hole in the side. This is not what I expect from a pair of $15 socks.
07/24/14 | By Christopher B.
I can not say one bad thing about these socks! Fits great, feels amazing, and doesn't bother me on long runs. I would highly recommend these especially for a long run.
07/23/14 | By John R.
The socks are comfortable and seem well made, but they are so thick that my Skora Fit running shoes that fit like a glove with standard socks are now tight and somewhat uncomfortable. Unless you're willing to always wear these socks and size your shoe accordingly, I can't recommend them.
Running with pillows on my feet!
07/15/14 | By Richard O.
Soft, fuzzy, plush...just a few of the adjectives I came up with to describe my new Thorlo socks.
great socks for runners
07/14/14 | By Jeff C.
I was amazed after wearing these socks for the first time. At first, I thought they were going to be too bulky or thick, but after putting them on and running a 5K race in them, I was a big believer in their performance. My feet were so comfortable, and felt very good! I am very happy with the socks.
07/13/14 | By Matt J.
these are really awesome but they are very very thick. if you have a low-profile running shoe -- almost any expensive one -- they may be a little thick for the shoe. but no blisters, and that's worth a puffy sock!
07/12/14 | By Joshua G.
These are too thick to wear with normal running shoes, I suggest going with a thinner padded sock.
Great look, but they attract dryer lint and pill
07/11/14 | By Don E.
I suppose I could wash them by hand. I like the way they feel and the way they look, I just don't like the way they hold up with laundering.
Comfortable and never wear out
07/11/14 | By Dennis R.
I have been purchasing thorlo socks for a long time and they last forever.
Thinner then I hoped for
07/11/14 | By Paul K.
I prefer a more cushioned sox
Best Socks Ever
07/11/14 | By Bruce S.
No better socks on the market. Comfortable and protective, they make your feet feel great during and after any workout.
07/10/14 | By Darren B.
Comfortable but I feel the "ridge" between the thickness of the padding change in the forefoot and midfoot.
Very, very comfortable
07/09/14 | By Sara G.
I love these socks
07/08/14 | By David R.
A little bit thick, but very comfortable and great to run in. Make sure you have a little extra room in your sneakers for these socks.
Great for golf
07/08/14 | By William S.
This is the 3rd time I have ordered theses sock. The buy 3 and get 1 free work for me!! They are comfortable and do not make my feet sweat during the 18 holes on the course. HIGHLY SUGGESTED by yours truly :-)
07/03/14 | By Richard M.
Simply and clearly the best, long-lasting socks on the market.
The most comfortable, supportive running socks ever!
06/30/14 | By Jim K.
Just as important as selecting the perfect running shoes is the selection of the perfect socks to go with them. I've run in Thorlos for years because they are simply the best running socks made. The 84NRCM is the best of the best!
06/28/14 | By Chris B.
I really like them; but a little too pricey.
best sock ever
06/28/14 | By Refugio C.
Thank you for the extream high qulity and well designed running sock, this product make much more confortable the daily run, gearing up for my next 15k
Feel Awesome! Just a bit bulky.
06/27/14 | By Matt M.
I love how these socks feel on my feet, but I won't get much wear out of them; they're too bulky to be worn with my shoes.
06/27/14 | By Bill D.
Great Sock !!
06/24/14 | By David S.
Very comfortable and absorbing
Great socks for Diabetics!
06/22/14 | By Steven N.
I really enjoy these socks for my summer walks.
Pretty good running socks
06/22/14 | By Stephen C.
My feet do not ach as much as they did before these socks, but lack the cushion in the arch that my other running socks have. Would like to see Thorlo add this feature, otherwise keep up the good work Thorlo.
Cushoning way too thick
06/21/14 | By Kevin E.
I have not even tried to run with these socks as the cushioning is way to thick for me.
06/20/14 | By Robert S.
Too thick...little support
Just as thick
06/19/14 | By Gil B.
I bought these not knowing if they were as thick as the thorlo's I am used too. They are. I would get them again. Also, very glad to get them in black. Wish they still had the thorlo logo on the top.
06/18/14 | By Hassan R.
Not what I expected I'm in so called premiuem socks
Great socks for running
06/18/14 | By William B.
Socks are very comfortable for runners. I am hooked, I only wear Thorlos when running.
As always, Thorlos are the best!
06/18/14 | By Devin H.
Excellent cushioning with total breathability. Great new socks!
Great for a cushioned .
06/18/14 | By Jeremy M.
I thoroughly enjoy Thorlos socks. These socks have a very thick forefoot and heel cushioned material. The midfoot support is excellent as in all Thorlos socks. I found the socks to be heavy and make my foot feel hot on daily runs, as for daily activities my feet felt refreshed. Bear in mind I like a minimalist type of sock when running, like the Expdia from Thorlos.
Son Loves These Socks
06/18/14 | By Susan R.
I bought these socks for my son who wanted black socks, cushioned his feet during a run and held up after numerous washings. Thorlo's brand never disappoints him. Thank you. Now if you would make them in more feminine styles, I too would find them to be my favorite...
Best socks for every activity
06/18/14 | By Luis T.
I have been using the Thorlos socks for years the quality and the comfort are formidable.
good socks but way too thick for me to run
06/17/14 | By Fernando C.
the socks are very comfortable and keep my feet very comfortable but I prefer thinner paded socks so they do not work for me to run, but they are great for wearing around and walking.
Swing and a miss
06/14/14 | By Ryan H.
Thicker than expected
Great cushion and support, but a little warm
06/13/14 | By Jimmy P.
Great cushion and support from these socks. I have worn regular Thorlos for years, but this is my first pair with the midfoot support. I like them better than a the regular Thorlo running socks. These are great socks for most mild activities, but on a hot day, they are a little too thick and warm for a long run. I would buy these again for sure.
My every race socks!
06/13/14 | By Clint C.
I wore Thorlo's for the first time for the San Diego Rock and Roll Marathon. Not only do I have all my toenails but not one blister. Best socks ever!
Same Old, Same Old...
06/13/14 | By Mack E.
No matter how often I order from Thorlo, the newer upgraded products always perform better than expected! And, the same goes for the 84 NRCMs : great socks, great comfort, support and of course, great overall performance.
Not Best for Running as advertised
06/13/14 | By Kevin R.
I am a real fan of Thorlos and have worn them for years. But, I tried a new style that was advertised best for running (84NRCM). I don't care for these socks at all. They actually shunk after washing. After wearing them I threw them away and gave away the other pairs that came with my order.
06/13/14 | By Paul M.
These are especially nice on long runs. The added cushion can feel a little bulky at first but in the final miles you're thankful for it.
A great new find
06/13/14 | By Launie D.
I am quite hesitant in trying new socks, finishing a productive run and dealing with blisters is no fun. However, trying Thorlos socks for the first time all around a great fit, support, and best of all no blisters.
Really nice for sore feet!
06/12/14 | By Thom H.
Padded on the right places, but breathable on the tops.
06/12/14 | By Martin C.
Although I am not crazy about the color, they perform well.
Good running socks
06/12/14 | By Anthony G.
I sometimes get pretty bad callouses. The padding helped that quite a bit.
good for boot camp training
06/12/14 | By Josue T.
I go to a class at my local gym called boot camp training.These socks are the best. They help me perform better and help me get better result as far as my stamina.
great socks for running!
06/10/14 | By Gary S.
The Thorlo socks feel great and my foot doesn't slide around inside the shoe.
06/09/14 | By Michael K.
I tried them on a couple of shorter runs of 3 and 4 miles and they were comfortable. They have more cushioning than other brands I've tried and that's important for me because I sport a metal plate and screws in my right ankle. I still have to see how they will hold up on longer runs but I will definitely use them for anything in the 3-6 mile range. Right now I'd give them an 8 but that could go up if they do as well as I think they will on long runs
socks for running..who woulda thought!!!!!
06/09/14 | By James C.
I just started running again after a 5 year hiatus. Problems with foot pain (heel/arch). Bought a better running shoe and the problem was still there but not as bad. Used the running socks...........what a difference. I'm now going to purchase another pair for work. I'm walking on concrete all day.
06/06/14 | By Richard B.
Good socks but I'll stick with running socks in future
06/06/14 | By Verna D.
I love these socks. I have always run in Thorlos and recently bought this version. I like this style better than any others I have run in. Highly recommend.
06/06/14 | By Steve B.
Very thick padding at the heel and the toe area. Really supports your foot in these areas when you slip into shoes. Area between the toes and heel is thinner and vents very well. Expect to be like all of my other Thorlos socks and get years of service.
Really Love these Socks!
06/05/14 | By Kenneth J.
I run several full/half marathons each year and had issues with blisters on my toes and even lost a few toe nails. Since switching to these socks, I can honestly say I haven't had a single blister or lost toe nail. These socks are great and would highly recommend them to all runners. Ken
06/05/14 | By Keith P.
These are great socks! Very comfy.
Best Socks Ever
06/04/14 | By John K.
These look as if they will last for years, and given the comfort, that will make them my favorites.
The Best Running Socks By Far
06/02/14 | By James R.
I've been running in Thorlos for over 2 1/2 year now. It is the only sock I use. I've tried some other brands, Nike, Under Amour, Adidas, etc, but none have come close to the comfort and durability of Thorlos. I haven't had any blisters and I have 5 half marathons and all the training that goes with them under my belt.
Awesome Running Socks
06/01/14 | By Steven B.
The sock cushioned in the right places and also let your feet breath. I highly recommned these socks. I know the prices seem kind of high but they are worth it!
06/01/14 | By William P.
Excellent quality, comfortable,
Very comfy & breathable
05/31/14 | By Andre M.
I really enjoyed them. I have friends who swear by thorlos, and will only wear them. I normally wear nike dry-fit cushioned socks and these thorlos are very nice too; another option just at a higher price point. I would recommend them.
Great cushioning socks
05/31/14 | By Nate S.
Socks are some of the softest and most cushioned I've warn. They sacrifice a bit in feeling "fitted" or snug to feet.
Best socks for running!
05/30/14 | By Michael S.
I have been wearing these socks for about 30 days and can't say enough good things about them. Just enough cushion, compression and they wear very well. Can't wait to get more pairs!
05/30/14 | By Brendan W.
love the extra padding. Great for a long day on your feet. Seem to last much longer than most socks.
Excellent Socks for Running
05/30/14 | By Richard G.
They aren't my absolute favorite. I love the trail running socks because they are a bit thicker. However, these socks blow the other brands that I've owned out of the water. Nice thickness and really comfortable.
Great for walking, even workouts!
05/30/14 | By Martin L.
Very comfortable, not bulky, and breathe well. If only they were a bit more affordable!
Durable, durable, durable
05/30/14 | By T L.
So good, I bought a couple more from Amazon.
05/29/14 | By Michael B.
Super comfortable. Great wicking, my feet aren't all sweaty feeling. They are thicker than I typically like, they made my shoes feel a little tighter. But overall. Great socks! Thanks Thorlo!
cushioning where you need it
05/29/14 | By Thomas S.
make no mistake....there are some serious socks. its not your typical THORLO sock that is end to end. this has the cushioning on the heel and forefoot. the arch area is thinner and more supportive. you cannot go wrong with these.....
the best socks. period.
05/29/14 | By Gregory K.
I've run in thorlos for the last 30ish years. I wouldn't run in anything else. They are the most comfortable and the most durable socks I have found. They are expensive, but they easily last 4 or five times as long as other socks and in the end, they will not only save you money, but all the blisters in between as well!
Great socks - love the padding!
05/29/14 | By Stephen R.
I bought these socks about a month ago because of the special offer with Thorlo. VERY impressed. I generally suffer with plantar fasciitis, which running exacerbates. The design and the padding on the Thorlos have greatly reduced my pain after running. Great socks!
Very cushioned sock
05/29/14 | By Lyle K.
Love the extra cushioning in the toe and heel area, but overall I thought the sock was too thick for my like.
Super thick socks!
05/29/14 | By John D.
Extremely cozy. Super thick at the heel and on the pad of your foot. Very comfortable. They MIGHT be a little too thick, not sure yet.
Way too thick
05/29/14 | By Josef D.
Could hardly get my running shoes on over these supersized socks. Much too puffed up for someone who prefers next to nothing between skin and shoe.
Use them for every run
05/29/14 | By Franc W.
Add that extra layer of cush...
Wonderful quality running socks!
05/29/14 | By Jennifer B.
Thorlos are expensive, but these are wonderful quality running socks. They've held up well (minimal, if any, shrinkage) through several washings. These are my husband's first choice (of several in his drawer) when he goes on a run.
These are the best running socks I've ever had by far
05/29/14 | By Jaleel H.
Very comfortable. It's like walking (or running) on a pillow.
05/28/14 | By Nate C.
For the first time buyer's price, these were great. Nice padding in the heals & toes. Would have liked them a little shorter in height, but otherwise, I'm happy with the purchase.
Reasonable socks for running.
05/28/14 | By Richard D.
Reasonable quality and design. But there are better.
Love These Socks
05/28/14 | By Dwayne O.
The only improvement I can think of would be that they come in more colors. GREAT SOCKS!
05/28/14 | By Giacomo P.
I received a defective product and had to pay shipping cost to send it back to hopefully get a non-defective sock. Bad customer service
Nice fit, no lumps
05/28/14 | By James C.
The socks have a great fit and feel to them, with no rubbing on the inside from stitching, etc.
Running in Comfort
05/27/14 | By Bill G.
The banding around the arches is awesome. I run. As a whole, I don't enjoy it all that much (que beer and sporting events on TV) but I get out and do it. These socks have made running a bit more enjoyable. That's saying a lot in my world. It is a quality premium product. I highly recommend it.
very comfortable while running
05/27/14 | By Michael S.
I used these socks with a very cushioned running shoe and found them to be very comfortable.
Amazing, comfortable cushions!
05/27/14 | By Tim G.
I have other running socks I've used for years. They are thin but slightly padded on the bottom. I thought those were the best thing ever . . . until . . I tried these socks (84NRCM)!! These are thick but with a snug fit. I was afraid I would be "swimming around" in my shoe with these thick socks, but quite the opposite. They were extraordinarily soft, cushioned and comfortable. I just ran a half-marathon in them and my feet never felt better after a long run like this! Highly recommend them. Make sure to follow the washing instructions to get the most out of the sock every time you run!
05/27/14 | By Greg M.
These socks fit my feet perfect and don't slide into my shoe during my run. Very good product highly recommended.
Great for just walking around the house!
05/27/14 | By George C.
I love the cushioning in these socks. I just wear them around the house instead of bare feet. Very comfortable!
Good Socks for Running
05/27/14 | By Thomas K.
The socks are thick where I need the extra cushion.
Never thought socks could make the difference!
05/26/14 | By Ted M.
Prior to purchasing this pair of Thorlos, I stuck with what I now consider traditional, low cost sock brands. I noticed that after only a few uses, traditional socks began to lose their support and began to whither away. Thorlos, on the other hand, seem to retain their structure use after use to a much higher level. Though the price may seem higher than the traditional brands, a single pair of Thorlos definitely outlasts the other products, and provides a much higher level of comfort than you'll find elsewhere. From this point forward, I won't be skimping out on inferior quality!
Great for running or cycling
05/25/14 | By Kevin B.
I have found these to be very comfortable in the heels and forefoot while allowing the arch and top of foot to breath easier. These are really great in my cycling shoes as well. If they are like my older Thorlos they will last for years also. Highly recommended!
I like the Experia better
05/25/14 | By Keith K.
These are a bit thick for running. Thickest running socks I own so maybe in really cold weather, they will come in handy.
Comfortable socks that hug your feet
05/24/14 | By Peter L.
These socks were really nice and comfortable. Thick padding on the bottoms with a thin covering on top. They really do a good job of making your feet feel good. The thick padding on the bottoms of the socks do add extra thickness to your feet. My shoes fit fine, but it's possible if your shoes fit tight now, the extra padding will require wider shoes.
Surprised by the design
05/24/14 | By Kyle Y.
Got these socks to try something new, and was quite impressed by the different design. Very light weaving on the top allows for impressive airflow, which is something I have never seen on other socks. For running they are excellent; However, be warned: They are very padded on the bottom, to cushion for road running. If you have a close fitting shoe, these may make your shoes tighter than you prefer.
05/24/14 | By Amy M.
My husband's favorite brand of socks. Seemed to be larger than normal. I guess I picked the wrong height he preferred.
05/24/14 | By Paul S.
New socks always feel great, but these have a extra cush in the heel and toe and there is some stretchy material in the arch that feels supportive. Only had the socks for a month, but feel new after 3-4 washes.
Best socks for aching feet
05/23/14 | By Brad B.
Due to health issues, my feet are really compromised. Thorlo socks provide a support and comfort not available in any other socks I have tried.
05/23/14 | By Jonathan R.
love these socks...cant wait to add more to the collection. my feet never felt better after a run!
Nice thick cushioned sock
05/22/14 | By Ignacio R.
Great sock with excellent soft cushioning. A little thick for hot summer runs in South FL.
Great Padding & Lightweight
05/22/14 | By Monty K.
These r my fave running socks so far! They have excellent padding exactly where I need it and yet they r still lightweight! Will def buy a few more pair!
Great sock for warm weather
05/22/14 | By Kenneth S.
I've used Thorlo's forever, even combat boot socks; the best, and real foot savers. I will use nothing else.
Good Socks sholud last forever
05/17/14 | By Paul J.
These socks are a little thick. I have inserts in my running shoes and I am use to somewhat thinner sock.
Just Right !
05/15/14 | By Sidney S.
Cushion where you need it thin where you need it -- just right, Thanks!
05/15/14 | By Jimmie C.
They just don't feel right.
Good padding but nothing amazing
05/15/14 | By Chad R.
I do like the Thorlo socks more than Balega. They are comfortable but have not done much for my metatarsalgia. It may not be the socks fault but it is the truth. I did buy 6 more pair for everyday use since they are thick and soft.
Best walking socks I've every owned
05/15/14 | By Leslie D.
I walk about 35 miles a week and a very fast pace on an asphalt pavement. Since I began wearing these socks, my shin splints have gone way and my feet are not tired following my 7 mile stroll. In the past, I tried wearing double socks and walking socks from The Walking Company, but neither compares in comfort, foot and leg protection my Thorlo's.
These socks are awesome
05/14/14 | By Brett B.
these sock breath so well, yet protect your feet from rubbing inside of your shoes.
84NRCM Running Socks
05/12/14 | By Michael W.
I have two pair of these socks and love them. They have the cushion and support required for my feet and to accomodate my longer runs. Thanks Thorlo!!
Almost my favorite sock, almost.
05/11/14 | By John D.
These socks are incredibly padded and comfortable, actually they are too padded for my current need. While I still use them regularly, I've picked up another pair of Thorlo's which have slightly less padding, and are an overall better match for my running needs.
great cushion for my heel spur, when i play golf!!
05/09/14 | By Gary A.
great socks @ a reasonable price
Great comfort and wicking for running
05/08/14 | By James K.
Best socks I have ever wor. Provide great padding in the heal and toe for heal toe or flat foot runners. Excellent wicking and durability. Just ordered two more pairs.
05/08/14 | By Ryan K.
While I got fewer, I got blisters the first time I wore them. Thinking it might be because I didn't wash them first (duh) I wore them again during a long training run and my right foot was just one big blister. I still give the socks a 3 because they are comfortable and fit nicely.
Good extra padding
05/08/14 | By Emily P.
Probably too much padding for me, but I could see how this would be perfect for very long runs. I am more of a 5K and sprints runner.
Run in nothing else!
05/08/14 | By Mike C.
Thorlo are the only socks I care to run it. Best cushioning and foot protection. If you ain't comfortable, you ain't happy running!
05/04/14 | By Dave S.
Thicker than I normally run in but the change was a surprising positive experience! I will buy more!
05/04/14 | By Joseph C.
feel like they don't have structure and are stretchy and slide online.
05/03/14 | By Kurt S.
They are nice sox
Comfortable for running.
05/02/14 | By Jeff O.
Always a fan of Thorlos. These are comfortable for long distance running.
Great socks for the long run!
05/02/14 | By Gregg K.
These socks have great cushioning and have helped with the heel pain I was experiencing after long runs. I would definitely recommend these socks!
05/01/14 | By Paul B.
I am a beginner runner so I was looking for a comfortable sock. A friend recommended these to me so I thought I would try them. It was a great decision ! Thank you! Great sock!
Could be tighter for a running socks
05/01/14 | By Cheng L.
Very comfortable, but could be a little bit tighter for a pair of running socks, so it won't slip around in running shoes
Good socks for running
05/01/14 | By Michael H.
These socks have worked well for me. They keep my feet padded on 10-12 mile runs when I used to get sore feet using other socks. The extra material keeps my toes from rubbing together so they are preventing blisters on my feet as a bonus.
Best socks for everything
05/01/14 | By Cory M.
They are the best socks ever! I only have Thorlo socks I use them for everything I do work, walking/running, and military. They are just great socks !!!
good sock with good cushioning
04/28/14 | By David M.
These are a good pair of running socks, but I prefer the powered by thorlo pads better. These are a little thicker than I like for a running sock,, they are good for short runs though.
04/28/14 | By Nicholas P.
Nice socks but thin on top and thick on bottom for good cushioning
04/28/14 | By Nicholas P.
These socks have good cushion but lack breath ability on the bottom of foot. The top part if sock on the bridge is too thin almost transparent. I would like that to be a tad thicker.
Great running socks
04/27/14 | By Anne M.
Most comfortable socks for running all my long runs include Thorlos now.
Fun to wear
04/27/14 | By Wendell C.
as a runner of 40 years and now a walker of 7 years, have always loved the Thurlo brand. Especially the low cut with roll top. You must have a patent on the roll top because no other brand has anything comparable. Hate high socks that leave the high tan line and w/o roll top socks sliding into the shoe on the run are $#%%^&. Which can lead to blisters etc.
Great socks for my sweaty feet
04/26/14 | By Allan D.
As mentioned in the title they are the best. I hate them for giving me higher expectations for socks in general.
Solved my blister problem, but the thick padded areas weren't comfortable
04/25/14 | By Tommy A.
I got these socks because I was getting blisters whenever I ran. Wearing these socks solved the blister problem, but the padded areas are so thick that they are proving to be a slight discomfort. They don't impact my workouts negatively, i am just constantly aware that my feet aren't comfortable. No longer getting blisters is worth the slight discomfort, but I would prefer a similar pair that is not padded, allowing my my toes and heels to occupy more free space and for my feet to "breathe" and stay cool. All though my feet stay relatively dry, i feel constant heat which prevents them from being comfortable, and prevents breaking into that effortless feeling while running. Based on eberything else though, I am excited to try a comparable pair without the padding.
04/25/14 | By Ben S.
I got these as a freeby promotion from Thorlo. Unfortunately they are a little oversized. I prefer my Expiras for my long weekly run. I suspect these would be okay, but for me Thorlos sizing was a little off.
Great socks, superb quality
04/24/14 | By Eduardo E.
I am amazed with the quality of the Thorlos socks. I have three pairs that I bought many years ago, I used them regularly and they look almost as new as when I originally bought them. The support and comfort are great.
Really enjoyed these socks
04/24/14 | By Joseph S.
I really loved how thick the socks are on the bottom and thin on the top. I feel like they kept my feet comfortable and cooler than others. I am looking forward to see how they fair in the summer months.
Great Running Socks
04/24/14 | By Harold T.
These are great socks....comfy and very cushioned. If you DON'T like thicker socks then these aren't for you. But for most people, they will be fantastic. Can't think of a more comfortable sock for running and other activities. Buy 'em....you'll not regret it.
04/24/14 | By Jerry G.
Excellent cushioning and durability for running.
Excellent socks for running
04/24/14 | By Michael j N.
Great padding and comfort make this an excellent pair for running!
Oh so comfortaboe!!!
04/24/14 | By James F.
Awesome socks.....super comfortable.....durable. They make the difference beteween sore feet, tired feet and energized feet!!! Thanks, thorlo!!!
04/24/14 | By Kelly D.
These socks to this point are pretty good. I have been wearing Thorlo heavyweight socks for 15 years. They provide the cushioning that I need as a distance runner.
Great socks after my foot surgery
04/24/14 | By Stephen S.
I had metatarsul surgery last summer, and it is still uncomfortable around the ball of my foot when I run. These socks and the Thorlos crew sock are now my favorites, as they allow me to run longer (up to 3 miles/day now).
Best EVER Running sock............
04/24/14 | By Ed Z.
As always.....I counted on them.....and they came through in Boston.......very nice sock and great foot protection and comfort....... Thanks EZ
04/20/14 | By Stephen S.
Great for running!!
04/19/14 | By Mike N.
Good quality and very comfortable however I would prefer a thinner, cooler sock for the summer runs.
04/19/14 | By Daniel D.
These socks have great absorption while running! It's like you're running on pillows!
Absolutely the best sock for running
04/19/14 | By Lavaughn J.
I've always loved Thorlo socks from the first time I placed them on my feet nearly a decade ago. They were the best performance sock then and that still holds true til this very day. Keep up the good work creating stylish yet functional reliable footwear. AWESOME product.
Very good cushion.
04/17/14 | By William Q.
Great cushion but be warned, you need a half or full size larger shoe.
Great heal Padding
04/17/14 | By Stephen N.
Like running with two pair of sneakers on! I have ordered more!
very comfortable after a few washes
04/16/14 | By Benjamin H.
i really like these socks. the first few times i wore them they seemed to rub on my heel. It was not raw, but it was not comfortable. after 3 - 4 uses, they feel absolutely normal. i wear them when playing golf, which is a walking experience. given my fantastic swing, i cover 7 - 8 miles per round. i only wear these on the golf course.
04/13/14 | By Kevin R.
Very comfortable for running.
No more blisters
04/13/14 | By Mark A.
just completed my first 1/2 marathon, no new blisters since the time I got these!
Great for running
04/13/14 | By James M.
Most comfortable socks I've ever worn for running.
04/12/14 | By Reg F.
Padding in just the right places, with the thin middle makes for a great running sock. Can't say enough good things about these socks, and I've worn Thorlos for years!
04/12/14 | By Jimmie W.
I am a former rereational basketball player from the 80's and I still make exercise a vital part of my life so support and comfort for these large feet of mine are vital. I have since bought more Thor-los and I will continue to sell their value to friends.
Lots of cushion
04/11/14 | By Norman M.
Lots of cushioning, unfortunately a little too much. Made the feel in my normal running shoes a bit too tight for my comfort.
04/11/14 | By David L.
Great socks! Thick cushion without holding a lot of moisture. Great for a short or long run.
04/10/14 | By Andrew H.
Great placement of padding
No more blisters!
04/07/14 | By Billy A.
My second toe on each foot is longer than the big toe, and I have battled blisters on the ends of my toes for a few years now. I thought thinner socks would help, but they did not. At the advice of a good friend, I looked up Thorlo's information, and found this product. I have been blister free for over 100 miles now!
Not Blister free
04/04/14 | By Regge H.
After wearing them for a ten mile run, I had a huge blister on the top of my toe.
Simply the best socks for nearly everything.
04/03/14 | By Richard M.
I have been wearing Thorlo socks for several years. I no longer run, but I still walk and exercise at a nearby gym. I always wear Thorlos for those types of activities. My problem is that I cannot find the low-cut styles in extra large.
04/03/14 | By Cindy K.
This was my 1st time trying this style. I like the low cut but the mini crew seems to work better on my ankles; the top doesn't dig in as much. Still love these socks & would buy again. Love Thorlos!
04/03/14 | By Andrew Y.
These socks are thicker than the experia but are very comfortable on my 10 mile runs. I'd definitely get another few pairs.
Best for long walks!
04/01/14 | By Liz B.
I use these on walks of 15-17 miles. Love them!
firm and soft
03/29/14 | By Daniel P.
the first pair i got were the crew for runners. fantastic.like walking on a cloud,the second pair which i got free thru the website promotion was the short ones. these are not close to the first ones. they are okay for just walking around house but not for running or long walks.wasnt happy with them so i ended up buying another pair same as the first ones.so lesson here is,when you get them on sale or free research and get the right ones first time.i already told two friends about them who have sore feet.
03/28/14 | By Jose T.
The best running socks around.
03/28/14 | By Jose T.
The best running so socks around.
Best Running Socks!
03/28/14 | By Carlos M.
I must say, I was a little skeptical at first, especially when I got them and noticed how thin they are on the top of the foot, but they are amazing! The sole of the sock is thick enough to give you enough padding for your feet, and then tops are thin enough to not overheat your foot. Out here in Vegas, that's a bigger problem than you'd think. I got the black versions and never had the problem of my feet feeling hot during our runs. I will definitely be buying more!
03/28/14 | By Jonathan E.
I wore these for the first time when doing a 5 mile run (a week after running a marathon) and I really wish I wore these during the marathon. Comfortable, cushioned, warm, I really have nothing bad to say about these socks. Forgive the cliche, but it really felt like I was running on air with these socks.
Great socks for training!
03/22/14 | By Richard B.
I no longer run but use the socks in running shoes on an elliptical that I use almost daily. The pounding is not gone but a steady pressure and sweat are still present. The socks perform well and my feet seem to be in a cushion. Great socks!
03/21/14 | By Philip N.
These socks are remarkably comfortable. They kept my feet warm and dry through the coldest runs this winter. I've since purchased 3 or 4 more pairs. Great product and they wear well.
Pretty good so far
03/20/14 | By Herry L.
It's a little thicker than I'd like them to be. I've had minor blisters with these on the tip of my pinky toes, probably because of the front seam. Have yet to run on these for a long run / marathon.
Had to correct rating
03/20/14 | By Rick S.
I gave socks a 2 on a scale of 10 and the program gave 3 our of 5 stars on 1st rating. So rating socks and website as a 1.
Not the quality I would have expected
03/20/14 | By Rick S.
Socks were loose knit and short. They looked like they had a mfg defect on the inside of the sock, near the ankle. Figured they sent out seconds as samples.
Best socks for running/walking
03/20/14 | By Frank G.
I previously Owned a pair a few years back and I loved them. My feet thank you.
03/20/14 | By Glen R.
These socks will keep your joints and back intact for years, by softening the constant pounding that running hard surfaces takes on a body over the years. I am 60, have been running since I was 29, and Thorlos (plus ice and heat after) are the only reason I'm still in the game.
Comfortable & Functional
03/19/14 | By Tom G.
Thank you! I've purchased additional Thorlo's
03/19/14 | By Michael H.
I really love these socks. They have all the perks of big, thick socks without the feel and weight of them in your shoe. Great cushioning under forefoot and heel.
Great socks for running
03/13/14 | By J scott R.
So far so good!
Would buy another pair
03/08/14 | By Tom C.
Socks are appropriately designed for ultimate comfort in your run.
03/03/14 | By Kyle J.
I am an avid runner. I've ran one marathon and many 1/2 marathons and other distances. I have used these over a dozen times now and I can tell a difference in comfort. I am not someone who normally has foot pain/issues, but the comfort and wear/breathability is noticed. If you have issues I could see where these could benefit you but other than the comfort for me, I can't comment on anything else.
Very nice running socks
02/27/14 | By Walter C.
I spend a lot of time on my feet either at the gym or walking. I own several pairs of running socks. No running socks I own can compare to the comfort of my Thorlos. Thorlos are the best.
02/27/14 | By Aaron M.
not as thick
That Extra Cushion I Needed
02/27/14 | By Jeffrey M.
I'm training for a half-marathon and started to have discomfort in one of my legs. First, the outside of my foot started hurting. Then, the inside of the tendon on my lower leg near my ankle started to hurt, possibly from me trying to overcompensate to ease the pain in my foot. After thinking about the pounding my legs were taking in training, I thought an extra cushion sock might help absorb some of the shock. Sure enough it did. These socks are great! I have run up to 12 miles in one training session in these socks and the pain has subsided. These are great for both running and everyday use as they are extremely comfortable. I highly recommend you give these a shot.
Best running socks I've used
02/24/14 | By Patrick M.
I've used many types of Thorlo designs, aside from other brands (wigwam, under armour), and these take the cake for long-distance runs. The look is kind of odd and dated, but that doesn't matter since they are no-show socks. I use both the Experia's and these, and the 84NRCMs take the cake. I ran 8 miles in them this past weekend and had none of the symptoms of a typical long run. The extra-thick padding does wonders when you are running for over an hour, and I can't recommend them enough.
Best cushioned sck for running
02/23/14 | By Chuck R.
These are the best cushioned socks for runnung. My feet used to hurt after running 5 miles. After wearing the Thorlos my feet do not hurt. I went out and bought a couple more pairs and I have told all my friends to also buy them.
02/22/14 | By Neftali P.
I prefer other thorlo socks.
02/19/14 | By Mark S.
The sock is too thin on the top and all along the colored band (both top and bottom). I love the look of the black (w/ red band) sock and the white sock (w/ blue band)-- but my foots slips in the shoe. I noticed that other customers have said the same; I do not understand why it cannot be changed/enhanced.
Great material, but they need offer a tubular version as well
02/16/14 | By Winston .
Indeed, foot comfort is excellent for daily runs. However, for me running on dirt paths, the sock should cover the ankle and offer the light support for the ankle and the lower shin that regular crew Thorlos offer.
Comfortable running sock
02/14/14 | By Luis G.
Great cushion where you need it. High quality product!
02/14/14 | By Carson C.
I really enjoy running in these socks!
02/12/14 | By Steve P.
I love these socks. Very comfortable. Would buy these again.
So far so good
02/10/14 | By Scott B.
I've worn these socks about 10 x's and so far they are as good as advertised. Thick, which has been good for winter. I do have to say I haven't thought about any foot pain on long runs since I purchased.
02/09/14 | By Sergio L.
So far the socks feel great. I cannot wear them with my Nike Frees as there is not enought room. But with my Brooks Pureflow they feel great. I hope they last as a previous pair had some threading issues.
Not for me makes some good points.
02/08/14 | By Charles D.
Some time has elapsed since I received the socks so I had forgotten about some of the points that "Not for me" puts forth in his review. I, too, chose the no foot problems but was not given an option to choose the proper sock. I recognize the fact that the socks were free, time could have been saved by simply sending us the "free socks" and avoiding the overlooked responses to their questions. The socks aren't bad overall. They are thick, bulky, if you will, but well cushioned. As a stocky built runner, without foot problems, I like the socks. Maybe not as much as the Experian socks. They provide good cushioning without the excessive bulk.
Great sock. Great Cushioning.
02/08/14 | By Charles D.
Great sock. Great Cushioning. Buy them!
New to me.
02/05/14 | By Blaine M.
Feel great sofar in my running shoes, but the jury is still out.
Not for me!
02/01/14 | By Rich W.
I received these as part of the free sock trial. They are very thick and my foot slides way too much in them. There are loose threads throughout the inside of the sock and they are HEAVY. I indiccated I do not have any foot problems yet I was sent a sock that is meant for people WITH foot problems, apparently the voice of the customer was not well understood. Rather then wear them for running they work nicely in my boots when I am shoveling snow. The local running store sold me a pair of feetures brand socks that are absolutely OUTSTANDING, great fit, comfort and are very durable. Sorry Thorlos, your socks are not for me.

02/01/14 | By John C.
Bottom Line......the best sock I have ever run in!!!!
Great value. They last forever!
01/30/14 | By Dennis R.
A little expensive but they last for years. Wish I could find them locally.
best running socks in the market
01/28/14 | By Jason A.
After getting a free pair I ran a 25k the first of January. The course was mainly snow covered my feet stayed warm and dry thanks to my new socks. I am in the process of switching all of my running socks to Thorlos
01/26/14 | By Tim M.
this model was a little too thick for me. I've tried the thinner ones and love them.
Really comfortable socks for working out or riding my bicycle.
01/25/14 | By Stephen S.
Really comfortable socks for working out or riding my bicycle. The quality seems very high. I will definitely buy more.
Super cushy socks!
01/25/14 | By Steven L.
I love these things. There super cushy and make your feet happy!
Wow, my feet won't let me take them off of them even to wash them because they are now happy feet!
01/16/14 | By Karen R.
Thanks for letting me wear your socks. We need to nominate you folks for bringing the most happiness to the most people.
Great running or workout socks
01/14/14 | By Keith N.
Perfect fit!! Love these socks.
01/06/14 | By Robert A.
Very thick sock. Great if in between running shoe sizes or for sizing up for long runs. Too bulky if the shoe fits snug.
Best socks for running
01/05/14 | By Joahn U.
After I recieved this pair of socks I went to the gym and ran 5miles. I don't feel any pain on my calves and foot. Next I would try the Experia too.
great cushions/support for your feet
01/05/14 | By Joshua D.
i run in minimus shoes so these socks provide great comfort for when i run. i have a few pair now and wear them every run day.
Great for long runs!
01/02/14 | By Ronnie D.
These socks give that extra bit of cushion thats needed for long runs! Well worth the price!
Best socks for my storage
01/01/14 | By Jimmy L.
I was expecting great product but tremendously disappointed. Worst yet, I not sure what to do with it now.
for real runners only
12/28/13 | By Ray R.
I have rated the JMM model also. these socks are the same thickness as the JMM, but only in the heal and toe box area!! they are very thin in the arch and top of whole foot area. If you are beginning to run/jog, then they might be to thin in those areas to offer the support and cushioning that you may want. the bands/strips may be some sort of strengthening type device due to the thinness of material there. be sure you have strong/very good arch support in your running/jogging shoes if you purchase. and also be sure to try them on with those same shoes first because it might change the sizing of those shoes to your feet.
Best Socks Made
12/27/13 | By Janice G.
There are no better socks than Thorlos.
They keep their shape year after year.
12/21/13 | By Michele D.
Except for work, my son and I only wear Thorlo socks. The hold their shape wash after wash. Made in the USA is the clincher. I still have a few pairs from ten years ago.
Definitely worth the price.

Try them you will never wear any other athletic sock.

Very comfortable for walking
12/19/13 | By Michael B.
Great cushion in heels and toes
Kind of thin and as I walk in them the back of the sock rolls under my heel
12/01/13 | By Dave R.
I have to continually pull the back of the sock up from under my sole. my Thorlos with a higher ankle are much better. These were advertised as for sore feet but the heels are not as thick as the first pair I ordered.
stylish and comfortable
11/08/13 | By Harris D.
stylish and comfortable - used them to go anywhere and play tennis
84. N best socks!!!
10/06/13 | By Peter F.
I've been a thorlo customer for years . For me they are the best socks on the market. I love the 84 n. I live in Florida and the socks wick the sweat really well.
10/02/13 | By Marco C.
I have been wearing Thorlos for over 20 years and these new models are just as great if not better than some of the older socks they let your foot breathe better and just so comfortable. i wear my Thorlos everyday even for work because they are just so comfortable and the best part is that they last forever! you can buy a pack of socks for what one pair of Thorlos cost but those sox will not last anywhere as long as a pair of Thorlos, Thorlos are a quality product made to last and worth every penny!
08/27/13 | By Steve H.
Thorlo makes a great sock for every activity. Tennis, Golf, Skiing, Running, Walking. I have had at least one pair meant for the aforementioned activities and they keep your feet feeling the best they possibly can.
Beware of Sock Thieves
07/14/13 | By Rowan W.
I bought a bunch of these socks a couple of years ago, and I was down to two pairs, so I ordered some more. Just after I ordered, I was helping to get my teenage daughter packed for camp, and I discovered what had happened to my socks. I should mention that she hates wearing socks, but apparently not these Thorlos. Now I've got to order several more, in a different color, so that I can reclaim mine and keep them separate.
70 Year Old Feet Love Thorlo's
07/11/13 | By Doug K.
My 70 year old feet love all my 25+ pairs of Thorlo's, and these are a favorite for my strive classes at the gym.
06/28/13 | By Wendy S.
Great socks but prefer the styling of the EXPERIA® MULTI-ACTIVITY SOCKS
Great socks, comfortable.
06/28/13 | By Steven D.
Very comfortable socks. Just what I needed.
Another great sock!
06/24/13 | By Steve H.
I wear these for walking, running, and golf. They are fantastic!
Great work socks with shorts and New Balance shoes in hot weather.
06/24/13 | By Rick Y.
I live in a very hot climate and work outdoors(I am a farmer). These socks keep my feet dry and comfortable all day long!
Good protection, not vented, too hot
06/23/13 | By John M.
I feel the protection for your heel and toes us great, but when running longer than 1-3 miles, my feet overheat and the socks don't vent we'll. This may be a personal issue but I only use on short runs.
Best socks for Golf
06/21/13 | By James I.
Thorlos are the best no question about it. They perform better, they last longer and are made in the USA. I can walk all 18 even 27 holes when needed thanks to Thorlos.
Very Good Socks
06/20/13 | By Todd Z.
I have been using Thorlo for years for running. For Zumba, there is a lot of heel bashing and foot pounding. These do not just cushion fabulously, but the top of the foot area is sheer making them breathable (where no cushioning is required). The low black with red stripes goes well with black Bloch dance sneakers. The red stripes hold the sock around your instep securely. You thought of everything!
WITHOUT A DOUBT THE BEST SOCKS....
06/19/13 | By Kenneth V.
I have used Thorlos since they were first made. The best socks for all uses, well constructed, long lasting.
Not What I Expected.
06/17/13 | By Kent S.
I expected the blue band to provide somewhat tight support around my foot for my high arches. Not so. I noticed little additional support over the standard Thorlo sock...which I like very much. They look like they provide a tight band around your arch...mine did not and I returned them.
great socks for playing golf !!!
06/10/13 | By William S.
The cushion on the ball of the feet and the heel give great support while wlaking the golf course.
BEST sock for running on hurting feet.
06/02/13 | By Ernesto G.
The BEST there is! Ahhhh!
Best socks for running
05/29/13 | By Mike D.
I absolutely love these socks. They have aided in foot injury prevention by giving my feet a nice quiet ride. Since getting these socks and the JMM's, I have placed 1st place in my age group in two consequtive races. Not saying that the socks are the sole reason, but I haven't place 1st in over 2 years.
Best socks ever for running! Helped me finish my first marathon in New Jersey!
05/07/13 | By Ed Z.
The socks are terrific! I limped in my last 5 miles with my sore left foot, but thank goodness I had these socks on! Great first marathon 3:13:37 :) Eddy Z
Best socks for running overall!!!!!!
04/17/13 | By Ed Z.
My foot pains are gone!!! These socks are everything you all said and more. Great cushion and support. Feels like running on pillows!!! :) Thanks a million......Marathon in 2.5 weeks and going in pain free. Thanks....Eddy Z
04/15/13 | By Aaron S.
Great socks. I usually have to tape-up my feet when I run to prevent blisters. These socks however seem to have padding in all the right places. I went on an 8 mile run the other day and I didn't have any issues. I also like that these come in large sizes, it's hard to find socks for a size 14 foot. I still think this is alot to pay for socks, but I can't argue with the results.
I ordered 3 pairs of A4N Runner and wearing the same shoes one pair fit excellent and the second pair was uncomfortable and the third pair was so uncomfortable I could not wear them
Great running socks
Just finished my 1st of many half marathons for 2013 and could not have finished feeling so great without my Thorlo 84N Runner socks. My feet felt amazing. I have flat feet and the construction of the sock in the arch gives perfect support.
I run almost everyday and it takes a toll on your feet after a long period of time. I looked at these socks as an investment and they were well worth it. Soft, comfortable and durable. Built to last.
01/30/13 | By James W.
These are almost like those try-on "footies". I got them for golf. I have to continually pull them up. They are so low cut I can't wear them when it's cold. They allow even a slight wind to go up my pant legs. Maybe I'll appreciate them more in the summer. The worst Thor-Lo ever for a long time user of your socks.
Worst socks ever! from Thorlo
01/19/13 | By David S.
not comfortable, not padded, too thin, tooo small. I've been buying Thorlos for years, would not recommend these to an enemy.
01/14/13 | By Gerald P.
After hearing a presentation by your salesman, Mr. Weston, I ordered three pair of Men's Over the Calf Dress Socks. I found that they weren't comfortable on my calfs. Also, the extra padding in the fat pad areas of my feet bunched up. I haven't tried the free pair of athletic socks you were kind enough to supply me with, but I'm disappointed with the Thorlo dress sock.
Super comfortable socks but buy big because they will shrink a LOT in warm water/moderate dryer.
purchased as a gift
recipient liked/kept them. Think they will work well.
Too small for men's shoe size 9
My husband is a us size 9 shoe so on the advice of the person I spoke to on the phone I bought the smaller size as the large size went up to a 12 and she told me it would be too big. The smaller size was too small and so it's no good for him. I am using them instead they are fine for lady shoe size 8.
great quality and fit
12/27/12 | By Dan P.
Although I have only recently purchased these socks, they seem great. Thorlo might consider selling these runners in the long version for winter.
12/27/12 | By Sean G.
Most comfortable socks I have ever owned. MADE IN THE USA.
Super quality...excellent perforance
12/13/12 | By Mark E.
The workmanship is definitely superb and found them to be very comfortable while offering stability while running. I really like the dry breathing design.What more it is a US Product adding to the proud quality only Americans can provide..thank you!
A run in the clouds!
12/06/12 | By Ernesto G.
Best cushioning sock ever. With this sock you won't even feel you are in trainers. :)
Excellent forefoot cushion
Due to having chronic toe issues and being a chronic runner I found that these socks help the nagging dull annoying pain tremendously.
Best socks for my feet for long distance run
I no longer have plantar fasciitis in using these Thor-Lo socks, nor pain in my calves. Amazing cushion while I run both long distance and conducting my interval trainings. Highly recommended!
Was looking for a cushioned black sock to wear with golf shoes. I was disappointed to find these socks had no cushion in the arch area. I returned them. Thorlo makes great socks but these were not for me.
The best socks that I have ever owned! They have been running, golfing, hiking, and just walking around town/mall. Will never purchase other socks!
I am a marathoner and these socks protect both my heel and toes.
Best All Around Summer socks ever
08/08/12 | By Joel H.
Ever since I first tried them on these are the only socks I have worn this summer. For running, hiking, walking, playing golf. I ordered three extra pair after just two days of use!
All around great sock!
Great sock for many sport apps. Tennis, golf, walking, running and hiking. Comfortable for all day use. I've ordered two more pair.
My Feet Survived
Wore my Thorlos for the 39 mile Avon Walk for Breast Cancer and at the end my fee felt great..but a bit tired.
An OK sock but not as good as the TMX. Appears to me to be cheaply made. I want max cushion and the TMX is much better.
Best comfort sock
Blue bands are useless but still a good sock. I wish Thor-lo had more colors and styles available for dress socks.
Great for golf as well
Nice socks - not just for runners
It's 5 o'clock and my feet feel great!
Have you ever thought: "It's 5 o'clock and my feet feel great!" after spending the entire day on your feet? You will think this if you are wearing our new favorite sock - the "bands" enhance your foor experience.
06/29/12 | By Rick R.
I love thorlo socks, but these socks do not stay on my heel while running. Big problem.
Shoulda Ordered mini-crew LRMXM
06/29/12 | By John.& christel H.
For several years I've been trying to decide which Thorlo sock I 'wear' the best. Initially I ordered a set of three different styles; of those I 'wore' the 'mini-crew LRMXM' the best. With my last order I ordered 3-pairs of the 'micro mini-crew 84NRCM'. I find it so cushioned I have trouble with it 'rolling' up as I wear it. --next time I will go back to the ' mini-crew LRMXM!' --Thanks for asking, your socks are the best and I just ordered the wrong pair --if a swapout is possible, please let me know Sincerely, John
Best socks for running!
06/17/12 | By Robert C.
These socks are the best running socks out there! They provide the right amount of cushion, are extremely comfortable, prevent blisters, and just feel great on my feet!
Excellent socks for both support and sweat control
I run several miles in these socks each time I wear them. They support my feet and ankles great. They also help control the extreme sweat that comes naturally comes with running long distances.
06/14/12 | By Sean G.
I have been a Type 1 Diabetic for 50 years. These are great socks.
06/13/12 | By Gary L.
I wantd a thick sock but these are too thich.
Great low-rise sock
Excellent forefoot and heel padding, nice looking; lightweight.
i wear these socks for work, Thorlos as usual are the absolute best socks!!
Great socks for diabetic athletes
Great socks for running. Protect my feet from blisters. They have helped me prevent plantar fasciitis . Bought more
03/19/12 | By John S.
i use these socks for running and other exercise activities at the gym (spin class, weight lifting, stair climber, etc). the socks are very comfortable. i like socks with padding, and the thicker padding on this pair is quite welcome. Also, the sock is very breathable, so...1) my feet don't become too sweaty and 2) the sock does note become too wet with sweat. the only downside is that i wish they made the sock in the ankle-length style. right now, it's only available in the short style, i believe.
Great comfort, padding and durability. Best socks on the market.
Love the Thorlo socks. Have been wearing them for over 20 yrs now. comfort, padding and all around terrific feel. Thank you Thorlo.
02/01/12 | By John Y.
I use these socks for everyday wear and working out. My only struggle is which pair of Thorlos to wear!
I really like them! Honest!
01/16/12 | By Gary G.
I wear them every day. Not the same pair of course.
Bought as gift.
Want others to appreciate the comfort of a good fitting sock.
Prefer the XJ
12/30/11 | By Kathleen H.
Would really love to have my very favorite JMX available in gray or pink in the larger size
Cute Little Sock!
12/30/11 | By Trish B.
I normally do not purchase bootie socks, but thought I would give this one a try. They do not creep down into my shoes and are very comfortable to wear. I won't to hesitate to purchase more in the future and they are very sporty looking!
Best Socks Around
I bought these socks for my Husband for Christmas. He loves them! They are a perfect mixture of support and softness. Highly recommended!!
With Plantar Fascia problems, they are the "only" socks I wear
these socks fit & feel great
My son loves these socks!
My son is a big guy with very large feet (15 E). It is very difficult to find quality socks in his size. The combination of cushioning and arch support are absolutely indispensable for a 6'3", weightlifting runner.
worst socks produced by Thorlos
11/20/11 | By Jeremy M.
These socks are the most unfortunate raggedy dish rags that I have ever had the displeasure to dawn my feet.
Great Socks for Comfort
Best socks I have ever put on. Sixty miles a week and the feet feel great.
Do not fit a true size 15 foot. Had to return the order due to size issue.
Great Golf Socks
I was looking for a short sock that would protect my toes when playing golf. This is a great golf sock. It is made extra thick around the big toe and prevents toe holes. It's just what I was looking for.
Best socks for my feet
I am a tennis coach all day on the court. The socks help me a lot
The best socks I have ever owned, period!
The best socks I have ever owned, period!
Straight to the Triathlon
this pair with its lighter top side but superior cushioning worked great for your not so average sized (6'6" 235 lbs.) triathelte. Out of the package and they went on quickly even on my size 15 wet feet. Transition time cut down by at least 4 seconds. I still placed 39th in my age group however. Should have swam in them.
Given the type of running I do, I'd like the soles to be thicker... and because I run on grass whenever possible, I'll go back to the longer (higher) Thorlos, so the backs of my legs don't get coated with grass cuttings!
great for running on asphalt
great mix of comfort and stability
Best socks for my feet!")
Best socks for my feet!")
Great for running
Very comfortable and help cushion your feet when you are running on hard surfaces
Like this model much better than the previous one!
-thiner but still very comfortable -two strips help to support arch and provides a great feeling.
I've been wearing Thorlo socks ever since they first came out and, as a 385 lb. man, they are the ONLY socks my feet are comfortable in! I love the band around the arch of my foot that keeps the socks from sliding down into my shoes! Keep up the good work!
06/10/11 | By Michael M.
Great every day sock for comfort all day
Great running socks!
06/04/11 | By Robert C.
I love these running socks! My feet stay cool and comfortable and no blisters!
Excellent "light" sock
06/02/11 | By Mike S.
For someone that needs a lightweight sock that does not sacrifice decent cushioning, this is the perfect sock.
My go to sock
Extremely comfortable and wicks well in warm weather. I did find that with the thick cushion, one of my pairs of running shoes didn't have enough room in the toe box area. Other than that, a great product.
Least favorite Thorlo
These do not have the tight, strong cushion that I look for in a Thorlo. I will not be able to wear these for long runs and they are already throwing "fuzz balls" after 1 or 2 wears.
Not up to snuff
05/26/11 | By Louis M.
Foot bed is good; top of the sock rolls down--needs to be more sturdy to equal other thorolo products.
Not Thorlos Best
05/26/11 | By Michael K.
Found the fabric of these socks to be a bit on the slippery side, such that the socks slip a bit inside my shoes. Plus, after 2 washings, these socks became very frayed and fuzzy! I guess it doesn't affect the functionality of the socks but they leave little black fuzzies all over the house!
Great for a 80 yr old runner!!1
Finally a sock with the thick cushion in the the right places.
These socks are exactly what I was looking for in cushion.
Well constructed sock. This is my second of type of sock by Thor Lon. The 4 year old pair still look and work great.
