Keeping Your Feet Dry Means Keeping Your Feet Healthy
For optimal foot health in the enclosed environment of a shoe, it’s essential that moisture created by perspiration be pulled away from your foot, out to your sock, then out to the shoe and finally, to the outside environment, where it evaporates. If this is not achieved and your sock retains moisture, the stage is set for such foot problems as:
- fungal infections such as athletes foot
- smelly feet
- bacterial infections
- trench foot in prolonged situations.
Moisture-Management Technologies to Help Protect The Foot
At THORLO we use two proven fiber technologies in our padded socks to move or manage moisture in the enclosed environment of the shoe.
THOR-LON is our primary moisture-management yarn. It’s a proprietary acrylic yarn exclusively developed for constructing the padding in our Thorlos product line. With cotton and other natural fibers like wool, perspiration is “trapped” in the shoe because natural fibers hold moisture as opposed to wicking it away. Further, natural fibers flatten or crush when subjected to the body’s weight, making them act like sand paper when subjected to friction. Conversely, THOR-LON acrylic yarn is specially spun to maintain both softness and resilience to maximize its wicking capacity, comfort properties, blister reduction qualities and durability.

THOR•WICK® COOL is a well known high performance yarn which has a very unique four-channeled design that produces an extremely soft cotton-like feel with highly effective moisture transport qualities. In comparison testing, it’s also been proven to produce a cooler skin temperature than other yarns. We use THOR•WICK® COOL in our Experia and Thorlos Lite Padded socks—in fact, we have a higher percentage of THOR•WICK® COOL in our designs than other socks do. Check out the Experia THOR•WICK® COOL product collection.
Clinically-Tested Padding Protection
Thorlos are made with a dense padding constructed of THOR-LON yarn. The acrylic fibers transport the perspiration away from the skin on your foot with its wicking properties. The result is a healthy or optimal moisture environment that results in significantly drier foot perception compared to cotton socks as demonstrated in independent clinical research.
Additionally, the padding in Thorlos clinically-tested socks has been shown to reduce not only moisture, but also:
- foot pain
- pressures on the feet
Fit is Important
Your activity-specific shoe, your Thorlos padded sock, any insert or orthotic you or your foot professional might choose, and your foot work together as a system. It’s critical for you to get the correct fit to optimize your performance and protection. Read our fitting protocol here and watch our fitting video to be sure you are getting the best possible fit.
