Dress Socks

Dress Shoes Designed for Fashion, Not Comfort Equal Best Dress Socks

Most tight-fitting dress shoes will torture your feet, especially if you are unlucky enough to be a “pavement pounder” or spend hours making presentations on concrete business convention floors. Thorlos promises to make your feet more comfortable in any dress shoes…that's our brand promise guarantee.

“These are the best dress socks I've owned in 60 years of wearing suits.”  S. Li

Unfortunately, most dress shoes are designed to look good, but not necessarily to be comfortable. Traditional designs use leather uppers, leather outer soles and a minimal amount of padding in the shoe. And if you need to spend lots of time on your feet in dress shoes, it’s a good bet that your feet will hurt because most dress shoes are not designed for extended periods of standing or for walking long distances. Thorlos engineered padded socks can help.

 “Out of all the expensive ... socks I've purchased for my husband, these Thorlos are his absolute favorite!”  K. Randall

Thorlos Engineered Padded Socks Make Dress Shoes Comfortable

Thorlos incorporates its foot protection technology into its thin padded socks, designed for feet that don’t hurt during the day (If your feet do hurt, we recommend our MORE Casual Comfort). Thorlos have Lite padding in the ball and heel to protect the foot in hard-soled and less flexible shoes. This protection will make a world of difference in the way your feet feel, but won’t change your shoe size. A little bit of padding goes a long way in a pair of dress shoes.

“This sock is perfect for wearing in dress shoes- the padding at the ball of the foot is really a plus for "older feet". The quality and fit is good and we have yet to see a pair wear out.”   J. Mares

Best Mens Dress Socks Assured with Proprietary Yarns

The Lite padding in the ball and heel will reduce the shearing and impact forces that cause foot pain and aches (foot fatigue) as well as blisters. The arch is designed with a special flat knit for a better fit and added comfort. THORLON yarn wicks moisture away to further assure a healthy environment for your feet.

“The cushion helps his feet stay comfortable and the socks don't slide down-don't bind either and are American made! We buy them 8 pairs at a time!”  G. Kilgore

“I love these black dress socks because of the longer length and the extra cushion the socks have.”  J. Watson

With Thorlos padded socks, there is no need to resign yourself to the idea that dress shoes are  not comfortable. With Thorlos, your feet can look good and feel good at the same time. What Pantherella* socks are to style, Thorlos is to comfort. So if comfort is what you seek, look no further than Thorlos padded socks.

Thorlos Over-the-Calf Dress Socks Stay Up 

Thorlos padded socks come in two lengths: DLT over-the-calf (also called knee-high) and DLTX crew length. Both are designed to stay up all day long because nothing is more aggravating than socks that slip down.

“I really like the support of over-the-calf foot wear. These socks are also beautifully woven.”  W. Lally

“The socks feel great and I'm glad I bought them. I must admit, I was apprehensive at first due to price so I first bought a trial pair and then came back for more :). They are my favorite dress socks. Also, they stay up better than average socks but not the best I've seen.”  J. Davila

If your feet hurt during or after wearing dress shoes, we strongly recommend our More Casual Comfort socks that feature our clinically-tested padding.

    Most comfortable socks ever!

    I believe they are the best socks ever. Comfortable, my feet can really feel the difference. I can walk without pain, and no pain after. I can go further in these socks .I highly recommend them.

    Too thin from toe to top

    These socks are so threadbare that I wonder just how long they would last. The cushioning is too thin to matter. They went to Goodwill after one wearing. Just not worth the hassle.

    Better than I expected

    When I received my order, I initially thought, "Hey, where's the rest of the sock?" because padding is not over the entire foot but just in certain areas. I've worn these socks for about a month and I really like them. They're comfortable, stay up without being tight, dry quickly in the dryer, and they're easy to match and tell apart from my other black socks. I'm waiting for another sale to buy more!

    Best socks for everyday wear

    I love these socks. I have fat pad loss and had trouble walking until I got these socks. They provide just enough padding to make every day activities fun again. Thank you Thorlo!

    Great dress socks!

    I have tried every incarnation of Thorlo dress socks, and these are the most comfortable. While the sock is thinner than other Thorlo socks, these are dress socks, and they certainly fit that description. The padding is just right for this type of sock and they look great with dress shoes. Just wish they would offer them in Navy Blue.

    Very nice socks

    01/06/18 | By

    These offer nice padding in just the right places, they're very comfortable, and they don't "fill up" your shoes making them feel tight the way that walking socks do. Wish they were offered in Navy blue though.
