Women's Experia Socks

Experia Lite Padded Socks—Stay Active and Comfortable

A high-performance padded sock that is designed for people whose feet don’t hurt during or after activity and who love to stay on the move, whether it’s running, biking, light hiking, fitness training, distance walking, recreational golf—just about any sport you can think of that puts low-to-moderate stress on your feet.

“These socks have padding in all the right places. However they don't add bulk to the entire foot to make your shoes tight. Love them!” Monique F.

The special frame of the sock stays with you as you push yourself and push the competition, keeping your feet comfortable, cool, and protected as you jog to the gym, fitness walk, run on the treadmill, weight train, cross train or interval train.

“Wore these socks for my first marathon and loved them!” Maria L.


Experia Socks: Lite Padding with Aerodynamic Fit

We use a thinner sculpted version of our engineered padding in the ball and heel to protect against shear and impact forces, providing more protection and comfort than regular thin cushion socks. Experia features an ultra-lightweight mesh polyester frame to provide maximum breathability and an aerodynamic fit for less weight than Thorlos clinically-tested padded socks. It also provides a lightweight Achilles tendon pad that protects against rubbing and chafing while also functioning as a heel lock. The result is the ultimate padded performance sock…beyond all other performance socks.

Two Different Styles: Featuring THOR•WICK®COOL and Merino Wool/Silk


Features include sculpted thinner padding, made primarily with THOR•WICK®COOL to wick moisture away from your feet to the outside of the padded socks, where it can evaporate quickly, keeping your feet cool and comfortable.

Colors: white, black, royal blue, pink,turquoise, navy, berry, electric/neon, yellow, and green.

“I bought these because I love the Experia white low-cut socks that I wear for walking in the summer. I bought these to take to Europe this fall. I have tested them out while doing day long chores that required me to be on my feet. They are just what I hoped for! They are in the suitcase ready to go.” Linda R.

Merino Wool/Silk Design (XWCU)

Features a unique blend of merino wool/silk that adds a bit of warmth (especially for your toes!) during cold weather activities.

Colors: charcoal, chestnut brown, forest green, celery, khaki, pink and blue.

“I wondered about the design and the use of wool and silk in the same socks but after wearing the first three pairs, I ordered three more. They are the most comfortable socks I have. The wool pads the contact points and the silk wicks away moisture.” Gary W.

Why High Design Socks?

Experia multi-sport, performance-engineered LPS are the perfect choice for active people without foot pain or other foot problems and are engineered for activities where less weight and an aerodynamic fit are important. They provide just the right amount of padding in the feet’s strike zones, giving you a competitive edge and, at the same time, the most protection possible without a change in shoe size.

“Best socks I have ever used when distance running. Able to run more often and for longer distances without my feet hurting!” Jeffrey C.

If your feet hurt during or after running/jogging, we strongly recommend our clinically-tested padded running socks. To learn more click here.

Employee Favorite

“I was introduced to them at a marathon expo and initially purchased them for running.  But I discovered this is the perfect sock for everything, from golf to tennis to a walk in the park with my dog. I no longer get blisters when wearing the Experia with THOR•WICK®COOL and my feet don’t feel as wet” Wendy Hogan, Account Service Representative

    Decent hybrid sock with cushioning and clean seams.

    04/20/17 | By

    These have a medium weight thorlo cushioning on the ball and heel with a thinner material between and on the top of the foot. The cushioning section is a little bit thinner than the classic thorlo running socks. My feet sweat quite a bit in these, so I only wear them for an hour or so during exercise and then switch to thin nylon socks that breath more for most of the day. Best for exercise needs when you want the cushion, winter time, or if you have cold feet around the house.

    I always thought a sock was a sock. But boy was I wrong. You can really tell the difference between Thorlo and regular socks. I particularly like the extra arch support during a workout.

    pricey but worth it

    I've tried to find cheaper socks for everyday wear. Tennis shoe companies maybe should stick with shoes. The socks look much better than the photo & I wish I'd bought more pairs on clearance. My shoes go on & off through the day. The socks now tend to stay on. The low cut does not slip in the heel like most do with me, very important when working around boats.

    XECU Size Issue

    03/24/17 | By

    Sock size seems a little small, but overall seem to be well made. Once on they are comfortable with the sizing being the only complaint. Next time I'll order one size larger and see how they fit.

    good feel but I am not convinced they will last long..

    03/21/17 | By

    The socks feel great, however, of the several pair I bought, so far two that I have worn are not properly finished at the heal seam. There are all kinds of little threads protruding making them look like old socks instead of only having been worn once. It remains to be seen if this will impact how long they last.

    great socks just too low cut for me

    03/19/17 | By

    I love Thorlos socks, but now that I've run in these a few times I'm regreting getting the low cut ones. I wish you made ones that are a little higher in fun colors.
