Golf Socks

The Importance of Your Feet 

Your feet are incredibly important when playing golf for two simple reasons:

  • Every swing begins with your feet, and
  • The game is more enjoyable when you walk.

And that’s why we took Thorlos engineered padding and created the GX, GMX and G Thorlos golf sock.

The Feet: The Foundation of Your Swing

The famous professional golfer Mickey Wright—whose swing was admired by the legends of the game such as Byron Nelson, Ben Hogan and Tom Watson as having the best swing of any professional golfer, male or female—says:

“Every great swing begins with a good grip and the correct  use of the feet…that is the working of the weight back and forth across the inside of the feet.”

Mickey entrusted her feet to Thorlos clinically-tested padded golf socks (CTPS). In a tribute to their importance during her career, she had a pair of her Thorlos placed in her USGA exhibit. Mickey is the first woman to be honored by the United States Golf Association (USGA) Museum, joining Bobby Jones, Ben Hogan and Arnold Palmer--the only other honorees.

Thorlos Clinically-Tested Padded Golf Socks Protect Your Feet

Thorlos clinically-tested padded golf socks (CTPS) were designed for feet that hurt during or after a round. They utilize clinically-tested padding, which starts with THORLON® acrylic yarns specially spun to maintain softness and resilience as well as to better wick moisture (foot perspiration) away from your skin. The testing has shown that Thorlos padding helps reduce blisters and reduce (buffer) the pressures that are created from the approximate five miles of walking and the weight-shifting during the swing required by the game.

Properly protecting your feet is no different from protecting your hands with gloves, your eyes with sunglasses and your skin with sunscreen.

Walking Beats Riding (except on Rainy Days)

Walking becomes a joy with Thorlos CTPS golf socks. Besides reducing blisters and pressures, Thorlos padding has also been shown in clinical research to reduce foot pain and aches, and moisture. When you are walking, you get to enjoy all the beauty of the course and the company of the three other people you are playing with.

Golf was meant to be a walking sport. Thorlos help make that possible.

Rolltop on a golf sock

The Rolltop Golf Sock

Thorlos CTPS golf protection comes in GX crew, GMX mini-crew and the G rolltop, which the company originated and for which it was one of the company’s original patented designs. It was designed at the request of Cynthia Sullivan, who later became a four-term president of the LPGA. She asked for a sock that would not come above the ankle but would stay up. Short socks of the day just would not stay up. She said it was a continual distraction to be constantly pulling her socks up. So the G Rolltop was designed. It would stay up all day and with the clinically-tested padding, it provided protection and comfort.

Curious but not yet convinced whether Thorlos CTPS can help you address your foot pain? We invite you to try your first pair free…just paying shipping and handling.

Employee Favorite 

“I love my ancient leather-soled golf shoes. The “G” rolltop has great padding on the ball and heel area to make my shoes feel like new. It also allows me to keep my tan line at the top of my golf shoe. The extra fabric that makes up the rolltop protects my ankle from the rough leather on the top of the heel of my old golf shoes.”  Jeff Lawson, Analytics

    Best Golf Sock Out There

    09/15/18 | By

    I am familiar with Thorlos from my hiking experience. So when I saw they had golf socks, I had to try them. I liked them so much I have purchased them again, and once more. When you walk a course, they are as comfortable as you will find. They also do a good job of wicking moisture from the foot. Also like the look and feel of the roll down back.

    These socks feel great and energize my feet for heavy workouts of Combat, boxing and kickboxing. The “pad” gives extra cushion to my feet during workouts and also aid the arch of my foot. Love these socks!!!

    Great Gift

    09/14/18 | By

    Todays younger generation like the no show sock, and I gift Thorlo often. Great story: I gave a pair of Thorlo socks to a friend for their birthday, and they cringed their nose and said "*** really? Socks?" Then she put them on. She asked for a pair next birthday for Thorlo socks. They are just that good!
