Always love thorlos.
Great socks for warmth and lightness

I use them with knee socks, and they work perfectly - not too thick, not too thin.
Great American Product

I am 45 years old, very active and on my feet a lot. I work in Houston and South America and like to have cool and comfortable clothes. Previously I had some of the thicker Thorlo socks and I wasn't thrilled because they got uncomfortable hot and stuffy. I decided to try these and so far I am extremely pleased. This is the only sock I will wear from now on. There was some real thought put into the design of these socks. The heel and toe are covered with a super soft cloth, and then a ring of strong nylon-like material that is nearly see-through and lets air get to your feet. The not quite so transparent but still see-through white netting around the top and the arch seem to keep the sock shaped to my foot. Once again, super happy with this product, and thrilled to see a US company knocking it out of the park!

Great sock and only reason I didn't give it a 10 is the lack of elastic provided at the top of the sock and appears to be over stretching over time. @ $20 ea. I'd like to think that shouldn't happen. Overall great socks!

Your products are excellent
The socks I have been looking for.

I found some socks very similar to these several years ago. When I wore them out I tried to find them again with no luck. The XWXU is the one I have been looking for. These are great for the distances I do,3 to 6 miles and my feet feel great. The cusion is right and they wick the moisture away and so far no blisters. I just need to layin a supply so I don't get caught short again.
Great socks for walking

Impressive design where comfort and efficient gentle support of the instep and heel are combined. Light socks that allow circulating air to keep hard working feet cool and dry.
Best strolling socks

Great socks! If not for the different coloured patterns, I'll say they are great all-round socks. I especially like the padding - they are placed at the right areas. I also like where the thinner fabrics are used to give the foot better ventilation, The only test now is how long they will last. If they are durable, then I'll give it a 10, I wish they come in plain colours for the whole sock, e.g. dark colour so that I can wear it to work, plain white for sports.
It is better to look good than feel good-right?

Probably great socks but the wrong color for anything but maybe a funeral.
Outstanding quality and fit
I am a long time fan of the XCCU (anklet version) which is the cousin to these---as with those, these have proven to be equally outstanding and have become my cool weather running and hiking socks. I am not a big fan of very thick socks b/c they actually distort shoe fit. As a minimalist runner and hiker, these fit the bill better than many others I've tried. Thorlos are my sock of choice!
Excellent quality and fit !!
These socks are super in every way, if you have not bought them you should! The entire line of all Thorlo socks is the best there is.

These are amazing! Cushy where you need it and thin in the arch
Cool, protective and comfortable
I used these with hiking boots in rough mountain terrain with significant climbing and descending. Pricey, but haven't had a better pair on my feet. Highly recommended.
Best sock ever for problem feet
07/17/12 | By Cynthia H .
Love to hike, but have had foot problems and subsequent surgery, which left me with heal and ball-of-foot pain after walking or hiking. Tried these and hiked 4.5 miles and there was no rub, no pain or tenderness. Arch support, cushion, no slip (I only wear crew) make these my go-to socks for any extended foot use. Don't ever stop making these, please!!!
I will be buying more of these
Wasn't expecting this...
Elastic threads broke very 1st time socks were washed-I expected better quality for the price.
only socks my husband loves
great service the socks came in great quality and timely.

These are the best socks. I will never buy another brand.
CONVERTED ANOTHER ONE!
bought these for my boyfriend, who had never heard of these fine socks... as soon as he put them on it was like heaven to his feet! I'm never disappointed! last year I bought some for the cashier at the diner I frequent-- she LOVED THEM --you never know who could use a pair of these fine socks... share the news :)
Wore these socks for my first marathon and loved them!

They strike a balance between warmth and comfort. Not a big fan of thin socks, but these have thicker support where you want it (heel and toe)
I have pain in my heel but the Tholo padding cures the problem
Best socks in the world - I just wish they were in solid black
12/15/11 | By Jenny K .
I have various problems with my feet (including age), and was at first reluctant to get these as they are not recommended for old feet. But wow - I'm so glad I tried them. They make perfect "dress socks" for me - thin where they need to be thin, padded elsewhere. My only regret is that they so look like sports socks. If they came in solid colors they'd work better as dress socks.
Best running socks ever!
I'll never buy another brand!!!!!!
I will let you know when I return from my trip when i will be wearing them hiking for several days in a row
Bought for a trip to Europe
I bought these because I love the Experia white low cut socks that I wear for walking in the summer. I bought these to take to Europe this fall. I have tested them out while doing day long chores that required me to be on my feet. They are just what I hoped for! They are in the suitcase ready to go.
great trail sock
06/14/11 | By Elane F .
These actually fit petty well and work great in trail running shoes. I don't like thick socks but need the extra padding of this sock. Not too hot either.
cool max socks
01/15/11 | By Scott m S .
they are nice socks but they fit tightly and are hard to get on. I asked for 10-13 size since my feet are size 9. I wanted to get them on easily. I'm old and can't pull very hard. They feel tight when they are worn. I'm not sure I got the correct size.
Stylish to say the least.
These socks peek out and show that you not only have sexy socks but that you gotthe color right. As far as comfort goes they are great! I have to stay away from this sight because I will wide up ordering more of what they have on sale or something that will sit in my closet until the old ones wear out--usually too long and I open the package and go for it anyway. The wool and silk combo works find and is very breathable. Go for them!
Nice for cold weather and trail runs

I was a long-time fan of the intelligent wool socks until I bought four pair of the low cut silk-wool blend Experias for the summer. I saw these on the web site and bought 3 pair. While I haven't worn them in a race, I have worn them on long training runs -- including a long technical trail run -- and cold morning runs. No snags on the trail run, and these socks are perfect for this time of year.

My favorite to date! Wearing Charcoal due to not having denim color.
like them fairly well
not my favs, but not bad.
Great for excersize

great socks, but don't stay up.
these socks are very comfy, but they don't stay up on my leg.
