    They might have ruined my favorite socks

    03/09/15 | By

    Recently bought a new batch of socks and they were bad right out of the package. They didn't stay up like my older ones used to and were constantly balling up around the tops of my boots. They also don't feel as thick or comfortable as they used to. Not sure what's changed the last couple of years since I bought my last batch, new manufactures, cheaper material, or what exactly?? It's a real shame I been buying these socks for years and absolutely loved them. I may have to start searching for a new brand all over again

    Best socks for light compression

    01/11/15 | By

    These socks feel great. I have medium level swelling of the lower legs, which left me with aching ankles and feet. These socks have all but alleviated this problem. Love them!!!

    Best socks I have worn as a auto technition.

    11/15/14 | By

    Best socks I have worn as a auto technition. I have been a mechanic for over 40 year. About 15 year ago, the balls of my feet started to burn so bad that I could hardly make it through the day. Then, my wife of 20 years was searching for a way to help ease the pain and she found the thorlo socks that were suppose to take the pain away from my feet. Yes they were someone expensive, but the pain I had was gone and it has not returned. Now I picked up an extra day of work and the extra pay easily paid for the socks and completely took my pain away. I will never wear anther pair of socks to work.

    Fragile construction

    08/18/14 | By

    I enjoy these socks; however, they are somewhat fragilly or delicately constructed as compared with the Combat Boot sock (MCB15404).. I have snagged a few pairs of these socks on a sharp edge of a toenail, but I have never had this happen with the Combat Boot socks. So just be careful putting these on.

    Cool and Comfortable for all day work and play

    08/03/14 | By

    My large calves would appreciate a larger top edge. By the end of the day they are beginning to cut into the back of my knees. the rest of the sock fits fine and feels good all day long.

    Great for motorcyce riding!

    07/27/14 | By

    I love these socks for motorcycle riding. I travel a lot and these socks provide support and wicking. Also, they stay up and I don't have to pull them up out of my boots all the time.

    My husband has been wearing these socks for 29 years. He won't wear anything else. They last and don't fall down you calf.

    Comfort standing up

    04/14/14 | By

    I replaced some OLD Thorlos with these and love the improvements. With the extra cushioned heel and toe and the semi-compression over the calf, standing on my feet for long periods is comfortable. I don't have leg cramps at night. Love 'em.

    These are the ONLY socks my husband will wear.

    01/16/14 | By

    My husband has tried other expensive brands but says that walking in steel toed boots on concrete everyday they don't hold up as well as Thorlos. He has worn Thorlos for many years and will continue to do so.

    Socks for my son

    12/20/13 | By

    I have gotten the over-the-calf basketball socks for my son since he was in his twenties- he is now 42. His wife complained that the socks turned his toenails blue, because of the colored toe area. I am buying him these non-colored socks this year. I am positive he will love them, just as he has loved the comfort of the other ones. Thorlo makes a super product. I wear the women's walking socks and won't buy any others.

    These socks make me happy!

    10/24/13 | By

    These are a very comfortable sock - my favorite aspect is that they stay up - I CAN'T STAND socks that fall down and bunch up inside my shoes...That's not a worry with these!

    Boot Scootin Boogie Socks

    04/08/13 | By

    I have been buying Thorlo brand socks for many years, and I have concluded they are by far the best sock at any price. I own pairs that are several years old and are still fully functional. Since I spend most of my time on my feet, many miles are covered each day at work. I can't think of any sock brand that can handle the day to day stress nor provide the comfort Thorlos do. Sure I can buy a value pack of six pairs for 5 bucks at Sham-Mart, but I have learned you get what you pay for, and those cheap socks rarely last past the first wash. Personally, I would rather spend extra dollars to buy quality "USA" made goods, keeping Americans working, than support the bangksters and the Chinese. If Americans would only wake up,stop buying foreign made crap, and buy American made goods, then maybe we could solve our employment issues. One thing is for sure, it takes a company that recognizes "Buy American" and seeks to provide quality, this returns value to the community.

    My Favorite Socks!

    01/23/13 | By

    I have used Thorlo socks for years--they are fabulous! I love the cushioning, no seam at the toe and they hold up well for years. This particular sock stays up and does not slide down my skinny legs. And so soft, too! Love them!

    Stand up to 12 hour shifts!

    01/12/13 | By

    I've been wearing Thorlo socks for about 20 years. I'm a nurse and work long days. These socks give good support-not medical grade but they definitely make a big difference. The only change I would make would be to make this sock with the instep support of Thorlo's moderate cushion walking sock. That would make them perfect for my feet. And they're made here in the USA, a big plus for me.

    Great for steel toes and everyday wear

    Great socks and worth the money!

    12/26/12 | By

    The WDB Uniform socks are very comfortable and great for periods of time when you are on your feet for extended hours. These particular socks work great with both shoes and boots. I wore similar Thorlo socks for more than 15 years as a law enforcement officer and my son now wears the WDB Uniform socks in his position as a restaurant manager. They make a great gift for anyone who appreciates comfort and quality.

    Best comfort for arthritic feet

    12/26/12 | By

    Our original rheumatologist highly suggested these socks years ago and we have used several styles, all in black, as my .husband is a pastor. He absolutely loves them, We always buy in the fall to get the free pair. He has used them for about15 years and is 61.

    QUALITY worth the $$

    09/27/12 | By

    My husband LOVES all of his Thorlo socks. He wears cowboy boots all day every day, so he doesn't wear the shorty socks - that is why he bought this sock. He wears this sock during the warmer months and he wears the ski sock or mountaineering sock during the colder months.

    Great for hot feet and they stay up

    03/24/12 | By

    I have hot, sweaty feet and after years of trying different brands I discovered Thorlo uniform over-the calf socks. They are my favorite sock for all day, everyday wear and comfort and they actually stay up and don't end up all balled around the top of your boots.

    I bought these for my husband who works 24 hour shifts. He says that usually by dinner time his feet are hurting but he really noticed a difference wearing the Thorlos, thanks!

    Great Socks

    01/13/12 | By

    I have been wearing these socks for years, after my son tried a pair of them he liked the so much that he won't wear anything else at work. They are very comfortable and will not fall down around your ankles like other socks. They are also American Made!

  • 5/ 5

    What a difference!

    01/10/12 | By

    My husband says these socks are the most comfortable socks he's ever had and he likes the length which is hard to find in men's socks. I no longer buy any other kind of socks for him.

    Elastic at the top is too tight for me

    I had to return these socks because the elastic at the top pinched my sensitive skin

    Great socks, wrong length for the giftee:)

    12/31/10 | By

    Nothing wrong with them. They were a surprise for my firefighter son and he preferred the crew so they are on their way to being returned with the replacement order already having arrived. Thanks Becky for your help.

    These socks are comfortable to wear, giving the soles of my feet the padding I need to get through the day. I recommend them!

    Best Socks Ever

    10/17/10 | By

    I have worn this sock for since the early 80's and it it my "favorite sock" in my drawer.I brag about these socks to all my friends and family. Not only do they "Stay Up',meaning over the calf for as long as you wear them. I am a over the road truck driver and these socks really help your feet and legs remain comfortable for many hours of wear. I hope Thorlo will always continue to manufacture such a high quality product!

    My husband loves these socks!

    05/26/10 | By

    I introduced my husband to Thorlo's a couple of months ago. For years he bought the same socks and for years he complained about his feet hurting at the end of a shift. His profession requires a great deal of walking and standing. I "suggested" he try these. He's now a fan of Thorlo cushioning and asked that I purchase several more pair. He's a hard worker and I am delighted that these socks can provide him with much needed comfort for his poor tired feet.

    Best socks for my feet

    01/29/10 | By

    My previous brand went out of business. These are, however, a better fit! Had I started with these first, I'd have been a customer for a much longer time.

    If your looking for a GREAT over-the-calf sock,this is it. Padding on the bottom, as with all Thorlo socks, is very comfortable. Just enough Spandex through the calf to stay up and provide light support. Great value.

    Good for both my feet and calves.

    06/14/09 | By

    I have bought Thorlo socks for my son for a number of years because his job keeps him on his feet all day. The deep cushioning is a real help to reduce the strain and he always asks me to get him some new ones. So - - - I bought some for myself and found them to be very comfortable cushion to the soles of my feet, and the moderate elasticity helps prevent varicose veins in my calves.

    Great socks

    02/19/09 | By

    I have worn these for years and one day my husband needed a pair of socks on a trip and I let him wear a pair of mine. Now he will not wear any others but now he has his own.

  • 5/ 5

    Well worth the $

    02/04/09 | By

    Comfortable, well made socks. But most importantly, they stay up and in place all day long. I am on my feet most of my work day, and I simply do not have time to keep pulling up a pair of sagging socks.

  • 5/ 5

    Best ever!!

    01/31/09 | By

    Super comfortable--great trouser sock with boots or shoes, I prefer the over the calf to the crew, so these were a great find. I have a drawer full of Thorlo's and love them all!!--they are the best and last forever..

    Only Socks to wear

    01/22/09 | By

    My husband will only wear the Uniform Over-Calf while working in the OR. We also use the sports socks for golfing and everyday wear as well. The quality and durability are far above other brands.
