Men's Fitness Socks

Stay Fit with Thorlos

What do you do to stay fit? Whether it’s weight training, cross training, Zumba® or other group fitness or conditioning classes, the padding in Thorlos clinically-tested padded fitness socks will help protect your feet from blisters, pain and soreness, as well as the pressures and moisture that set the stage for other serious foot conditions.

“These socks are comfortable for all activities. They keep my feet from sweating, are easy to maintain, and worth the cost.” Dane L.

Available in men’s and women’s styles, these engineered padded socks are specially designed to accommodate the differences between men and women’s feet so that both are well protected and comfortable. Research has shown differences with respect to such characteristics as ankle circumference, circumference of the ball of the foot (greater in men) and circumference of the instep (greater in men). We take these and other differences into account when designing these activity-specific padded socks.

“I like the wonderful soft material and the cushiony feel of these socks while I work out at the gym.” Richard W.

When your feet feel better, your workouts will be better and you’ll reap more benefits from engaging regularly in the fitness activities you love.

Thorlos Fitness Socks—Like No Other Activity-Specific Socks

Spandex around the arch of the foot—that’s the defining difference between Thorlos foot protection for fitness and Thorlos other activity-specific padded socks. That band of spandex provides support and stability—extra protection during the twisting and lateral movements that are part of most aerobic dance and other group fitness classes. Add that to moderate cushioning in the heel and thick cushioning in the ball of the foot for maximum shear/friction, impact and shock absorption—and exclusive THORLON® fiber that rapidly wicks moisture—and you have a winning combination for all of your fitness activities. These padded socks are especially beneficial if you have narrow feet—they stay in place and don’t twist around during those “cool moves.”

Two Types of Foot Protection

Thorlos clinically-tested padded fitness socks are for you if you cross train by engaging in various sports and activities, but have experienced foot pain, discomfort or injury—or if you want to do all you can to avoid foot problems in the future. If you participate in high-intensity aerobics or other fitness activities that create high foot stress, you’ll want to wear these comfortable yet resilient and long-lasting Thorlos.

For maximum protection: Men’s XT and Women’s AX, ARX,AMX—all made with THORLON®, THORLO’s patented, moisture-wicking fabric.

“No other sock fits, wears and holds up as well as these do. Do not even try any other sock.” Polly P.

    Decent hybrid sock with cushioning and clean seams.

    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.

    They scrunched my toes

    There is a big difference between the unisex socks and women's socks made by Thorlo. The women's socks are much narrower in the toe. I couldn't wear them. I exchanged them for unisex walking socks. The walking socks are more comfortable , but not as good as the ones that Thorlo used to make in years' past. The older version was much thicker - they called it a #3. Now the socks are listed by categories instead of by thickness. When I spoke with someone, she said that they now use a different yarn. Thorlo should keep looking for a yarn like the one they used to use.

    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.

    Best socks for serious exercise!

    03/22/17 | By

    I have plantar fasciitis which has seriously hindered running and jumping. Usually by the end of an hour, I'm heavily limping. These socks have helped to the extent that I am not limping at the end of my hour of serious exercise. They also provide support/comfort when taking a long walk with the dogs.
