Reviews for Thorlos XJ
Decline in Build Construction and Quality
03/15/19 | By Anthony H.
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.

They are very comfortable and really cushion my feet , much better than others that I have tried.

As a runner who is now in his fifties, I need a comfortable sock which provides ample cushion. The Thorlos XJ is the perfect sock, and the quality ensures an extended wear.

I have been wearing these socks for many years, and the cushioning for one's heel is remarkable. They are made very well - there is no fraying on the top of the sock, they have a trim at the top. You don't have to be a runner to wear these socks - I use them everyday. They also last a long time. Enjoy !

I feel like I'm walking on an air cushion--soft, padded, and comfortable. It conforms to my feet and gently hugs it for a perfect fit. I don't wear any other kinds of socks anymore since I discovered Thorlos over 10 years ago. I don't care for fancy decorated socks. Besides who is going to look down at your feet when you are at an event. The support is amazing--no more pains and aches! I like these for cold winter days! Keeps my feet warm and snug.

I feel like I'm wearing a good pair of socks, generally.
