Experia Sport 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

    Disappointed in these socks

    05/09/18 | By

    I have been disappointed in these socks, because after a few washings, the heels started to fall down into my shoes! They were too expensive to sit in my drawer, so I wear them but am forced to often remove my shoe to pull them up! Thankfully a few of the 5 pair I purchased have kept their stretch in the ankle and don't fall down! I was so happy with previous Thorlos that have lasted 10 plus years are are still going strong!!!

    With these socks in my walking shoes, I am noticeably more comfortable and find I can walk longer when I travel without foot fatigue.

    Love the socks

    05/05/18 | By

    I already owned 5 pair of these socks when I ordered an additional 3 pair. I love these socks. They are so comfortable to wear while I am out walking. I put on a lot of miles each summer and only wear these socks while doing so. I had a size issue when I ordered the socks. I called Thorlos and spoke with a customer representative about the problem. She was so helpful and within a few days I had the proper sized socks in my mailbox. Great customer service.

    I like the fit and wicking. There is just enough padding for my toes while playing tennis.
