Thorlos Padding Reduces Foot Pain

How Thorlos Help

Pain emanating from the bottom of your heel can be caused by many different things. But often it’s because little calcium deposits form on the bottom of the heel bone. These small bony prominences, called “spurs,” can be painful when they extend into otherwise unprotected parts of the foot, rubbing against nearby tissues and nerves or extending into connective tissues.Bone spurs on the back of the heel are also fairly common. This is where the specially designed and engineered padding in Thorlos CTPS can make a big difference in your foot comfort.

Thorlos CTPS padding is clinically shown to reduce pressure and impact that causes painful, sore feet. Heel spurs are no match for Thorlo's socks for heel spurs.

The engineered padding in Thorlos CTPS cradles the heel and adds a comforting layer of protection under the heel and on the back of the heel, where painful heel spurs often form. If you suffer from heel spurs, your feet will thank you for wrapping Thorlos CTPS around them.

The padding density varies, depending on the part of the foot we’re protecting. Where the shear and impact forces are extreme—usually in the ball and heel—the padding is more dense to buffer against those forces, helping to reduce foot aches and pain. The padding is particularly dense where your foot experiences the effects of peak friction or shearing forces. Less dense padding is used in the arch area for a secure fit. Our core Engineered Padded Technology® is adjusted based on foot kinetics (how feet move) in specific sports and activities..
