Best Padded Socks for Cold Feet

There’s no question that your feet will get cold if they’re not properly protected during cold-weather sports and daily activities in a cold and/or wet environment. Although many people immediately think wearing 100% wool socks will solve the problem, the fact is, if your feet sweat from activity, 100% wool socks might actually make them colder. That’s because 100% wool socks absorb sweat and any water that seeps through your shoes or boots and stay wet. There result is the opposite of what you want. Instead of warm, protected feet, you get cold clammy feet and socks that lose their shape, slip and bunch up.

Thorlos padded socks are made of a blend of wool and Thorlon®, our proprietary synthetic fiber. Thorlos wool blend socks maintain all the insulating properties of wool, but unlike a 100% wool sock, Thorlon wicks the moisture away from your feet. The padding is also highly resilient, maintaining its protective properties, shape and fit throughout the day.

Clinically-Tested Protection

Thorlos have additional advantages over other socks sold for cold feet. For one thing, the padding used in our clinically-tested padded socks (CTPS) has been shown in independent clinical research to reduce:

  • blisters
  • foot pain
  • pressures on the feet
  • moisture that can set the stage for blisters and keep feet cold and wet

Thorlos CTPS are also activity-specific, meaning we have padded socks that are specifically designed for different cold weather sports and activities. Using our proprietary design matrix, we select fibers and place padding where you need the protection based on your foot kinetics (how your feet move during the activity); the type of footwear used in the sport/activity; the surface and climate you’re likely to be in; and consumer testing.

Thorlos CTPS are for you if your feet hurt during or after engaging in your activity of choice or if you want to do all you can to avoid foot problems in the future. All Thorlos CTPS are available in men’s, women’s and/or unisex styles.

If your feet don’t hurt during or after an activity, we recommend Thorlos Lite padded socks(LPS). Our Lite padding provides more protection and comfort than regular thin socks on the market. You can choose from Thorlos Lite padded socks styles or our Experia® brand, which offers light-weight protection with an aerodynamic fit and comes in 12 colors.

Remember, if your feet are cold for no apparent reason, see your doctor. Cold feet can be a sign of circulatory problems or other conditions.
