The Design of Thorlos Padded Walking Socks

THORLO's senior design engineer describes the development and benefits of Thorlos clinically-tested padded walking socks.

What Independent Clinical Studies Say About Thorlos

Thorlos padding has been the subject of eight independent clinical research studies that were published in peer-reviewed medical journals. The results showed the proprietary padding reduces foot pain, blisters and other foot conditions, pressures on the foot and moisture.


  • Constructed with THOR•LON® fibers for superior softness, resilience, durability and moisture-wicking for drier, better feeling feet.
  • Cushioned instep and spandex in the arch for a better fit, more support and less pressure on the foot for a more comfortable long distance walk.
  • Engineered for women’s feet with extra stretch yarn in the ankle, a smaller heel pocket and a comfort toe box for a better fit.
  • Low profile toe seam won’t rub or irritate feet.
  • Unique padding specifically engineered for distance walking, clinically shown to reduce blisters, pain, pressures and moisture.
  • Ventilation panel for extra moisture control and breathability.

    Best Socks Out There


    When I first read about these stocks, I was skeptical. My feet hurt with every step and I didn't beloved stocks would make a difference. I was wrong. These stocks do everything Thorlo says they will do. I can actually walk without pain! They are worth every penny.

    Too thick, too small


    These socks are extremely thick. I returned them because I would have had to buy new shoes to accommodate their bulk. Also, they run small. I ordered the correct size for my foot but they cramped my toes. I have been wearing Thorlos for 25+ years and this is my first disappointment with one of their products.

    Takes stress off the feet


    At my work I stand anywhere from 10-12 hours per day 5 days a week without sitting down. This of course causes a lot of stress and pressure on feet no matter how great your shoes are. My shoes break down in a few months. When I wear these socks I forget all those painful little pressure points in my feet. I also purchased these for the Susan G Komen 3 day, 60 mile walk. I've trained in these socks and I received no blisters nor hotspots. These socks are worth every penny. They last for years with a lot of use. You can't buy a mediocre sock from Thorlo! I 3 different styles and they are the only new sock I purchase. Thank you for making a product that actually owns up to its promise!

    This is the only sock I have bought for the last few years


    Love the feel. I have a 7 1/2 size foot and buy the small sock. Love them. I replace them every year.
