Reviews for Thorlos XJ
Works for Haglund's Deformity, Too
02/15/18 | By Tim G.
I have a condition called Haglund's Deformity. I was no longer comfortable in any socks I could find. I called Thorlos as I could see the socks had padding where I needed it. I placed the order and love the socks. I work out and walk each day and normal store bought socks would only last me a few days.

I've not found nicer, more durable & comfortable socks!

I have been buying Thorlos XJ Running Socks for over 20 years, purchasing a dozen at a time. It really pains me to write this review because I used to love my Thorlos XJs and would buy them religiously. But over the last 5 years I have seen a significant decline in the build construction and quality of these socks. Thorlos XJ Running Socks are much thinner than they used to be, with both thinner pads/cushion and thinner elastic tops, and they are much less durable, showing significant wear after just a few washes. For the first time, I have experienced multiple holes both in the toes and in the top sides. The Thorlos XJs are just not what they used to be and no longer worth the premium price they cost. I hope Thorlos will one day restore the XJs to their former build construction and quality, but for now it saddens me to say I will not be buying any more Thorlos and instead be finding less costly, cotton, thick, cushioned athletic socks.

Thank you, Thorlo, for responding to my comment about making these in black. I am definitely going to buy a bunch of pairs of these socks. Hopefully you are able to ship to military addresses overseas.

Now that I'm retired, all I wear is XJ socks

These socks are just the ticket for protecting toes, heels and the ball of the foot. My feet have been put "through the wringer" over the many years of working out and these socks are so wonderful for the cushion they provide to "beat-up" feet! I cannot go the distance without them on. Great product!

I feel great - I wear these socks every day- and at night when the weather is cold. I have been wearing them for years and they never disappoint!

Way to go Thorlo! You not only have the best maximum cushion sock for runners on the market, but now it is offered in the happening color of black!
