Men's Fitness Socks For Feet That Hurt

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.

They are appropriate for lower impact workouts and other activities that don’t stress the feet, such as t’ai chi and yoga.

    These socks are padded in all the right places. I replaced all my socks with Thorlos as they make my feet feel great during workouts or just as a daily sock. Have washed them many times now and still excellent fit.

    I threw out all my old socks. These are the only ones I wear now for tennis, walking around or keeping my feet warm. They hug my feet nicely and don’t fall down. Colors are awesome

    First Wearing Great - but didn't hold up

    03/02/18 | By

    I was lucky enough to receive a pair of these (Experia 12) at a recent running event for a test and got to run my race in them. They felt great on that run - very comfortable. But after washing the first time, they didn't hold up when I ran in them and just keep falling down. Can't wear these for running! Hope this information about this sock is helpful.
