Thorlos® CTPS: Protective Gear For Your Feet

When your job is protecting your country, the last thing you need to be thinking about is your feet. Nevertheless, foot issues follow ground, air and combat service support elements throughout all encounters.  In the field, feet are prone to getting and staying wet from sweating, crossing canals and streams.  The skin will get soft and easily blister if not properly cared for. In winter, you might be patrolling in the frigid mountains where your feet can get cold or even frostbitten. Experience has taught us you can’t afford go barefoot or get blisters or infections on your feet in the field. Combat troops should not have to carry someone who could have taken better care of his or her feet. That’s the job of Thorlos clinically-tested padded socks (CTPS) for military boots.

“My Marine son says these are the best boot socks ever! Whether wearing his jungle boots or combat boots, he loves these socks for the comfort, length, durability and elasticity to roll up skivvies. The Marine Corps has taught my son the best thing you can do every day is take care of your feet with clean socks. They may wear the same clothes for 7-10 days straight in the field, but are always told to air out their feet and change their socks. If my Marine is happy, Mom is happy!”  Patty M.

Our mission is to provide unprecedented foot protection and foot comfort in support of the critical role combat infantry and special operations forces play in military operations. As such, we designed Thorlos clinically-tested military boot socks to be protective gear for your feet.

Thorlos core technology is engineered padding that has been clinically-tested and shown in independent studies to reduce:

  • Blisters
  • Pain
  • Pressures
  • Moisture

These benefits make Thorlos part of your protective gear for your feet.

“I'm currently going through basic training and I recommend these to anyone who needs to wear a heavy boot all day. I've never had a problem with them staying up and after 9 weeks I still have healthy, un-damaged feet (no blisters, ever!) Great buy!”  Barrett F.

“These socks are super warm, fabulous, and cushiony!!! Love the extra coverage and protection against the spots that usually get blisters. My other boot socks do not compare!”  Jeffrey C.

Thorlos Trusted by The Best of The Best

Thorlos clinically-tested padded military boot socks have been put to the ultimate test by Recon, SEAL teams and Special Forces Units. The ST (Mountaineering boot sock) was the sock of choice of the Special Forces units of the U.S. military for cold weather operations in Afghanistan, and it is the official sock of the Indian Defense Forces. They chose Thorlos because these CTPS provided added protection and comfort while they were deployed, especially in mountainous areas where the terrain features rock faces so sharp they can cut through boots. Your buddies have your back; let Thorlos have your feet.

“Sent these to my stepson, a Navy Seal, stationed overseas. He wrote us ““Those socks are seriously amazing, if it weren't for the color of them I'd wear them with my civilian clothes lol... they're like floating on air in your boots...”  Joy R.

Thorlos Customers Committed to Active American Forces

We have developed a program whereby our customers are invited to donate Thorlos CTPS combat boot socks to troops in the active theater. They can purchase our Thorlos clinically-tested padded military boot socks at our manufacturing cost. We then work with other supporting organizations to get the donated socks to our troops. It is truly the cause we are most proud of supporting.

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.

Because of the demands placed on your feet during military duty we do not make Lite Padded Socks (LPS) for this purpose. You need the foot protection provided by our clinically-tested padded socks (CTPS).

Brand Promise Guarantee

For a job this serious, we know there is no such thing as a trial period…there are no rehearsals in military services once you cross the forward edge of the battle area. On the other hand, we know money is tight and company supply socks are free. So we stand behind our product. If you don’t agree that with Thorlos, your feet feel better than when wearing general issue socks from the company supply, we’ll refund your money. No questions asked.

    Great socks for wearing in work boots, but calf runs too snug for me

    Hubby really like these socks but had to return them because the sock is very tight in the calf area. After being on his feet for 10 hours, they became uncomfortable. He has long legs, on the thinner side.

    I bought a two pair for my husband earlier this summer. He works twelve hour days on a standup reach truck type forklift. Of those twelve hours, eleven are spent standing. Had many other socks over the years, but these are what he calls 'Twelve Hour Socks' He even wears them on days off!

    So glad I purchased these socks. My feet and legs don't hurt as badly after being on them for 12 hours. I highly recommend them to anyone with jobs that include a lit of standing and walking.

    These socks are the most comfortable socks to wear with combat boots. Been in for 30+ years and will only wear Thorlos. Great cushion for long hours on your feet.

    My magic socks!

    06/23/18 | By

    My magic socks! Last year I bought a very expensive pair of high-end work boots, beautifully made, tough and rugged but after about two weeks they made my feet hurt a lot. I tried insoles and different socks and nothing seemed to work. So I relegated these boots to something I wore when riding my motorcycle or for an evening out when I did not have to do a lot of walking. I got the socks on a whim and they made my feet feel so good I decided to try them with my painful boots. Incredible. Now I can wear these boots for eight or even 10 hours a day with no pain or discomfort whatsoever. I would never have believed a pair of socks could make that much difference. The only caveat is that they are very warm and probably a little too warm for summer wearing. I am hoping that Thorlo Has an equivalent pair of socks in a lighter weight. Otherwise, I cannot recommend this socks too much.
