Men's 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.

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

    Cut a bit too low

    04/18/18 | By

    Thorlo socks are nicely cushioned and nicely ventilated but this particular cut is not good for tennis. Cut too low. Shoe rubs my exposed ankle. Wish socks were cut a bit higher.

    The XCCUs are the best. Perfect amount of cushion and these socks hold up through his heavy usage.

    I never knew what a difference socks make. I am on my feet at least 8 hours a day and these socks make a huge difference. My feet feel so much better after a day in these socks. It is amazing!

    Comfortable; but NOT No-Show Enough

    04/12/18 | By

    Fit of sock is very nice. But when worn with, e.g., Sperry boat shoes, they 'show.' So as no-show socks, they don't do the trick. Length is between no-show and low-cut.

    Bought three pair two years ago in Waco, and never found them again. Googled from the info in the socks and found them! I'm a very, very big fan. My flat feet love them. You will love e them!

    Difficult review

    04/08/18 | By

    This is a difficult review to write. I know Thorlos pretty well and have had many over the years. All of them are top notch just like these. Stitching and construction is excellent. Color is vibrant. Labeling and tags are all pro. But!- I got these for free for signing up with a gift card. I entered my profile: Male, 62 yrs old, shoe size, farmer. Outdoors all day, all year long in all kinds of weather. So, when I received these I was a bit perplexed to say the least. They really don't fit my profile very well.

    A bigger size made all the difference

    03/30/18 | By

    I posted a review after I originally purchased these socks, rating them as 2. I was unhappy because they didn't stay up during wear. But I've tried a larger size ( wear a 5 1/2 shoe but I'm wearing a sock for sizes 7-9), and they stay up well. They are wonderfully padded and comfortable. I'm so glad I tried another size!
