Women's Trekking Socks

Heavy Gear Means More Pressure on Your Feet

Trekking is tough on your feet. The weight of your pack and the rest of your gear doesn’t just change your center of gravity; it also increases the pressure on your feet by weighing you down from your shoulders to your hips, to your knees, to your ankles—all the way to the soles of your feet. Add to that the rough terrain and the often, cold, wet winter weather and you are likely on the way to foot pain, blisters and other foot conditions. That’s when you know you need Thorlos clinically-tested padded socks (CTPS)—to help protect your feet, keep them warm and dry by wicking moisture, and comfortable in your shoes or boots.

“Love these. I put them on and immediately felt the extra cushioning all around, so much so it felt like my boots were not going to fit. But once on I felt as though my feet were being hugged with a super comfy/warm pillow. I felt like this all day and I had walked in the snow.” Jacqueline S.

How Thorlos Trekking / Treking / Trecking Work

Shoes and boots for this activity typically have stiff shanks (the part of the boot between the midsole and outer sole that supports the arch and helps give structure to the shoes/boot). Most heavy-duty footwear is made for winter weather, and has leather uppers that resist moisture and snow. Thorlos clinically-tested padded trekking socks, in combination with properly fitted shoes or boots, are designed to help buffer your feet from pain, shear/friction forces, pressures and moisture. Our exclusive THORLON®, blended with wool and other thermal fibers, provides maximum insulation and wicking—keeping your feet dry, keeping your feet warm, keeping your feet comfortable. Spandex is used to provide additional support and comfort.

“These socks have heavy cushioning and are durable. They keep my feet dry. Having tried many other types and brands, I have settled on Thorlo TKX.” Paul V.

Clinically-Tested Padding

Thorlos clinically-tested padded socks are recommended if your feet hurt during or after your activity to help prevent any foot conditions. The padding is placed precisely where your foot needs protection, and has been clinically shown to reduce blisters, pain, pressures and moisture:

Ball and heel padding: Extra thick cushioning in the ball and heel reduces shock, impact, shear and blisters while on extended hiking trips.

Instep padding: Moderate cushioning protects against boot pressure and allows for a better fit at the arch.

Ventilation panel: Brings wicking to a whole new level, helping to keep feet warm and dry.

“I hiked 45 miles in and out of the Grand Canyon, outlying areas and Sedona trails and vortexes. I have feet issues, wear orthotics, and these Thorlos were the only thing that saved my feet. Everyone else on the trip (eight others) including two experienced guides, had feet issues. I was the only one who walked away, literally with comfortable, pain-free feet. I will only buy Thorlos!” Elaine W.

“I bought two pairs and they are perfect for wearing with my Blunnies. However, I did not anticipate that my girlfriend would love them so much. They seem to keep disappearing so I will need to get some more - in her size so I can get mine back!” Richard W.

Employee Favorite

“Mostly I’m a week-end backpacker but if I have some buddies who want to do a longer trip and my schedule can accommodate it, I’m there. For those longer days and greater distances, I use the TKX. I usually pack a slightly heavier pack (extra food and clothing), and the padding in the TKX helps cushion my feet and seems to help offset the extra weight.” Rick Mende, Business Development / Product Performance

    I love the warmth they provide, but the elastic on the top is too tight. Needs to be a bit looser.

    Love these socks for work. Summer they insulate from heat and winter from cold. Very good cushion for all day on your feet. Want more colors though.

    A pair of trekkers with poly liners are the only socks you'll ever need. I have worn that combination for close to 40 years...hot summer deserts, cold winter mountains, squishy rain forests...work,play, social event...forget the rest and buy the best. They also have great service!

    I have had great luck in the past with these socks, but the last ones I ordered are way too tight! Not sure what has changed but I'm not too happy with the newest purchase.

    Bottom is perfect, the top is loose, jut the opposite of the OEUX. Tighter weave on top be a really good sock.

    I love these socks. The bottoms are so thick my feet float in my work shoes. I can walk 6-8 hours a day in them.

    No more hurting/fatigue feet. These TKX have excellent padding/cushion that allow me to work in work boots 12 hrs shifts with no problem now. Comfort, comfort. They provided great comfort for years they way you have designed them with your own material. Excellent job there Thorlos! Excellent research! You have designed, then made socks in variety for all the different feet condition's/problems the public can supply you with. Thank you designing socks for our feet condintions!
