Men's 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.

“I spent two hours on the internet to actually find a dress sock made in the USA not sold buy a company that used to make socks in the USA. So far these socks seem more form fitting with extra padding and reinforcement that any other socks I have ever purchased.”  J. Thrall

    Above Average Dress Socks

    07/16/17 | By

    Socks fit comfortably and the padding at the ball and heel are a definite plus that make these socks above average. I've used Thorlo sports socks (all different styles) for many years. While the toe box felt a bit snug with a bunion (the extra padding at the ball helped), they was still the best sport socks I've had. I did not know how the dress socks would fit, so after trying them on a trip, I would definitely recommend them. Make sure to get the correct size.

    My son loved the socks, he said they are extremely comfortable and don't allow his military shoes to give him blister, on long marches.

    Soft, breathable and stay up

    04/27/17 | By

    I'm not sure what the other reviewers are complaining about but these socks rock! I'm a size 13 and bought the XL (12-14) sizes. Sock went over the calf and was soft and comfortable. I have 3 pair of Tommy John socks. They are thin, can be too tight on the legs (to the point of needing to pull them down while driving due to circulation), and they do very little in the moisture department. I'm not a heavy sweater but had swamp foot after hours in the socks. Thorlos nailed this idea. A thin, breathable sock that adds padding where needed. The socks also do a fantastic job of moisture management. Soft socks that stay up, keep your feet dry and provide just the right amount of padding. What else could you want?

    New Dress Socks

    04/15/17 | By

    Have bought over 30 pairs of the old style and the new are terrible - uncomfortable, too thin and slip down during my day. I have 4 pairs remaining on the new style and I'm planning to return them. The CEO should consider relaunching the old style back again. Bad move by your team.
