Beyond Warm Socks

Is there anything worse than the misery of cold feet? You might even say that if your feet are cold, then nothing else is warm, especially if you’re outdoors in wet conditions. 100% wool socks can actually make your feet feel cold and uncomfortable because they hold sweat and any other moisture that penetrates your shoes or boots next to your feet. This leaves your feet damp, cold, and decidedly uncomfortable.

By contrast, Thorlos clinically-tested padded socks (CTPS) are made of a blend of wool and engineered synthetic insulating fibers, and THOR-LON®, our proprietary synthetic fiber. The KLT Hiking Thorlos and TKX Trekking Thorlos feature the insulating properties of wool, but the synthetic fibers wick the moisture away from your feet to help assure your padded socks are warm. The padding is protective and resilient, and Thorlos maintain their form and fit even through serious hikes—and serious weather.

For less demanding conditions, Experia® wool silk crew and mini crew lengths provide thinner padding that won’t let your feet get chilled in cooler weather, and yet won’t wear out quickly like 100% wool. The light padding and foot-hugging characteristics of Experia wool/silk blends help ensure that your feet are warm comfortable and sufficiently protected.

Clinically-Tested Protection

The padding in Thorlos CTPS has been shown in clinical research to reduce:

Thorlos CTPS are also activity-specific, meaning we have padded wool socks that are specifically designed for different cold weather sports, including hiking, trekking, skiing, snowboarding, to name a few. 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. You can choose from Thorlos LPS styles or our Experia® brand, which offers light-weight protection with an aerodynamic fit and comes in more than a dozen colors.
