Faster Game Means More Demands on Your Feet

If you’re like many tennis players, at some point you’ve complained about blisters and achy feet—and no wonder. The way tennis is played today clearly can punish your feet. New racquet technologies are making the game faster. There used to be four seconds between hits; now there can be as few as two. The increased speed of the game increases the shearing forces placed on your feet. This means your feet are landing with the force of 3-Gs (or three times your body weight), leading to impact stresses and a condition called “tennis toe” or black toe. The result: foot protection is more important today than ever before. Thorlos clinically-tested padded socks (CTPS) can help.

“No more blisters on my toes. These socks are great.” Glenn B.

Power Starts with Your Feet

Your feet are critically important when you play tennis. The tennis stroke is a series of linked movements. Whatever goes through the racquet during a serve actually starts with your feet. Your power or energy transfer comes from having your feet firmly planted before and during your moves. This means the energy that eventually goes into the racquet depends upon your feet being at their best.

When your feet are uncomfortable, you won’t move as well and you’re likely to lose power. Achy feet or the twinges of a blister will slow you down and undermine your concentration. You won’t play as well as you’d like, and you certainly won’t enjoy the game as much as you’d like. Thorlos CTPS can help.

“Tennis is all about footwork, and this is the most comfortable and high-performing sock on the market. No chafing, blisters, and quick-wicking.” Frances T.

How Thorlos Help

Thorlos clinically-tested padding provides your feet with maximum protection. It dissipates the forces created by the sudden stops and starts and the lateral changes of direction that are repeated hundreds of times during a good tennis match. Thorlos padding has been clinically shown to reduce reduce blisters, foot pain and pressures, and wick moisture. With these damaging shearing forces in check, you can play in comfort, enjoy the game more and win more.

“They are comfortable and provide great cushioning.”  Theresa P.

Thorlos Clinically-Tested Padded Tennis Socks

Clinically-tested Thorlos padded tennis socks are recommended if you experience foot pain or want to prevent any foot conditions during or after playing. The padding is placed precisely where your foot needs protection:

Ball and heel padding: Protects the ball of the foot from the severe shearing and impact forces that occur during quick changes in direction and pivoting/spinning 

Toe padding: Protects against “tennis toe”—that is,  banging of the toes in the front of the shoe during sudden stops.

“I don't limp around after tennis anymore since I have been wearing Thorlos!”  Joan D.

Tennis Camp Favorite

Nowhere is the protection provided by Thorlos tennis socks more vital and beneficial than at a tennis camp. These camps are intensive. Participants are involved and on their feet for 12 hours a day or more. The cost of attending is significant. Much of the focus is on speed, agility and overall movement; therefore, sore, achy or blistered feet are not an option. The last thing you want is to be sidelined or playing less than your best. Get the most out of tennis camp by wearing Thorlos CTPS, which have been clinically shown to reduce blisters,  foot pain and pressures, and wick moisture away from the feet. For extra small feet, we recommend our kids’ sport socks.

“My 13-year-old son wore these to a 2-week tennis camp and did not get any blisters!! Most of the other kids were complaining of blisters on their feet and how they hurt when they played tennis that day.  My son totally agrees these were a life saver.”  Beth W.

Employee Favorite

“I grew up playing a lot of sports. As a teenager, I never thought about the type of socks or shoes I wore. By the time I was in my mid 20s and started playing competitive tennis with USTA, my feet were already giving me problems because of the cheap cotton socks I had worn all those years playing sports. While at a Davis Cup event in Georgia, I ran across Thorlos padded socks and decided to give them a try. I could not believe the difference. I could play without my feet hurting. I could play longer. Now, in my 40s, I can still play just as long as I did in my 20s… not play as good… but play just as long, with Thorlos TMM - Tennis CTPS.”—Cori Peters, Social Media

    Maximum cushioning

    06/24/17 | By

    Cushioning - extra padding in the right places - its vital to me concerning athletic socks. Thorlos are the only athletic socks I've bought during the past 10-plus years. What more can I say to commend them? Two things, actually - 1) They also take a very, very long time to wear out and be in need of replacement; 2) For people with very large feet like me, it's also great the they're available in super-large size.

    My new favorite sox

    I use to think the roll top golf sock was the most comfortable sock I had worn. But this tennis roll top is padded slightly more and is extremely comfortable. Especially for you people who walk when they play golf. One caution I would have is I wear an 8 1/2 shoe but get the large size sock.

    Disappointing - Not the superb socks I bought previously from Thorlos.

    06/23/17 | By

    Not as secure as with the earlier Thorlos socks I bought. These do not have the padding that I expected. I only bought these because the ones I bought earlier were not available in my size. Bad Mistake!
