Work Socks

Finish the Job in Comfort with Thorlos® Pro Work Socks

Whether you’re working on a factory floor or the roof of a new house; whether you’re operating heavy machinery or a welding torch… your team-mates are counting on you to do your part. You want to pull your weight, and finish the job, however long it takes. Foot pain and problems hamper your ability to do your work – to complete the full shift on your feet, to concentrate on precise tasks, or to do your job despite the weather and the temperature outside. Thorlos Pro Work socks take care of your feet so you don’t have to worry about them. There might be some things that can keep you from doing your job, but foot pain won’t be one of them.

The Thorlos work pro sockwear is designed to be worn with many different types of footwear – from standard work shoes, to safety toe shoes or boots, and heavy duty work boots (and everything in between) – to help protect and comfort your feet. Made of a proprietary blend of fibers and padding that is positioned in just the right places for work footwear, Thorlos padding:

  • Helps reduce the pain and discomfort associated with sore feet, blisters, calluses, plantar fasciitis
  • Wicks more moisture away from the foot, helping to protect against athlete’s foot and other fungal infections
  • Provides a healthier, more comfortable foot environment

You’ve got to be pretty tough to put in a full day on the job; but Thorlos are tough, too. They maintain their fit, shape and protective function over time, even after repeated washings. That’s what value is all about – great performance and great durability:

“Wearing these socks allows me to be on my feet from 8 to 10 hours while I am at work, without any sensation of ‘lines’ carving into my feet.  They are so comfortable - they do not slide and the price is so worth it. I love them!” – W.A., Georgia

Thorlos Clinically-Tested Padded Socks: The Absolute Best Boot Socks for working on your feet

Even if you do not currently have a foot condition or feet that hurt, the Thorlos uniquely designed engineered padding is recommended for people who work most of the time or all of the time on their feet. Thorlos CTPS increase your standing and walking comfort and reduce the chances of many foot problems, so you can concentrate on your work, get it done, and not have to worry about pain and problems in your feet.

Comfort, Durability and the Best Value

Thorlos are not cheap. But they last, and they are worth the investment:

“I found Thorlos 6 years ago. I fell in love with them - they feel great on my feet. I have a very physically demanding outdoor profession that requires me to wear steel toe boots 8-24 hours a day. The best way to describe this product is, pillows for your hard working feet! I normally would have purchased 12 or more pairs of socks each year from one of the other brands, but Thorlos hold up so well I now buy 6 pairs every 1-1/2 years! They make you feel like you put on new boots every day. I have just ordered additional pairs for my family! Well worth the price!” - M.S., Ohio

“They're the first pair I grab when my laundry gets done! I'm on my feet all day at work and these socks work miracles on your feet. My whole day is better when I wear them.” – J.R., Wisconsin [WGX]

Employee Favorite

“I am hooked on Thorlos Industrial Uniform Steel Toe WLST model. It’s designed to protect my feet from the steel shanks in my safety boots.  I tried them on…they felt so comfortable, so I bought 2 pairs.  Now, I wear nothing but the WLST model at work. I especially like the length and my feet feel great after long days.” Wayne Weston, Thorlos Carolina Brand Ambassador

    My husband is really enjoying his new Thorlo’s socks. He has had several foot surgeries and these socks have been wonderful by fitting his feet with just enough stretch!

    Less Foot Pain

    Wasn't sure they'd be worth the price, but bursitis made my big box store cotton socks useless. These are cushioned, and well made in the USA. I'll stick with them.

    A great sock, for gout sufferers

    I purchased more than 10 pairs several years ago. This item is listed, by the same WLST, yet this is not the same product??? The ones I am still using are very good. I have only one complaint. They did not survive the walking I did. They eventually wore thin, on the ball, of my feet. The rest, of the socks, never wore, at the toes, but the ribbing got weak, after at least 6 years. I am still wearing the original socks, until the bottoms wore through. I have discarded 5 pair, from the first line. I, in all honesty cannot judge this latest order, however I will bet these will not last anywhere as long. There is less padding above the toes. I can say they may well not stretch, quite as much. They stay, in place so far. I hope this helps. Keep, in mind this message as you see my grading below. I would have given the socks a 10 were these the same!!

    My feet are very comfortable in these socks. I wear these for work, but when winter begins to rear it’s ugly face, I will wear them not only for work, but also when not working.
