Reduce Foot Pain with Thorlos Clinically-Tested Padded Socks (CTPS)

How Thorlos Help

The problem can be traced to either impact and/or friction forces on the foot. Thorlos CTPS address both of these with engineered padding placed at high impact and friction zones. Thorlos padding is made with proprietary THORLON® acrylic yarn (and yarn blends) designed to cushion and protect the feet. Thorlos padding has been clinically shown to reduce impact, pressure and friction forces. The net result is Profound Comfort® during intense activity, whether it’s running a marathon or working a 12- hour shift on a concrete floor.

Thorlos CTPS padding is a category of socks for foot pain clinically shown to reduce foot pain and sore feet

The forefoot is the most common area where pressure and shear forces tend to be greatest. A dynamic foot moving around in a static shoe is often a recipe for pain; the repetitive stress and trauma from walking, running and standing on hard surfaces such as concrete also cause or contribute to pain and discomfort. And, as we get older, the protective fat pads on the bottom of the feet wear down, providing less protection against impact.

Minor pain often can be addressed by wearing Thorlos padded socks in properly fitted shoes, plus any insert or orthotic recommended by a foot health professional (see our fitting video). See your doctor if pain worsens or does not go away within a few days

The Role of Proper Footwear Fitting

Along with injuries and overuse problems, this pain can be the result of poorly designed and ill-fitted shoes worn with the wrong socks. A simple, cost-effective way of preventing this pain is to provide a proper environment inside the shoe by protecting the feet and skin from ill-fitting shoes. Thorlos CTPS are a key component in addressing that problem. Thorlos engineered padded socks, an insert or orthotic if necessary, and properly designed and fitted footwear can reduce pain caused by impact, pressure and friction.
