The Design of Thorlos Padded Running Socks

Insights into the design, development and testing of Thorlos activity-specific, clinically-tested padded running socks from David Varsik, THORLO's senior design engineer.

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.
  • Cushioning over the toes to help protect against runner’s toe.
  • Flat knit instep and cushioning in arch for better fit, more support and less pressure on the feet for a more comfortable run.
  • Low profile toe seam won’t rub or irritate the feet.
  • Unique padding specifically engineered for running, clinically shown to reduce blisters, pain, pressures and moisture for maximum protection.

    They are the best socks for everything I do-riding, hiking,working


    They are padded and protect my feet from wear and tear- they also stay in place and never slip, rub or sag- the material is comfortable, breathable, warm and never itchy-

    These socks aren't just for running!


    I am not a runner so I couldn't possibly comment on how they hold up running. I AM a rural mail carrier who is on her feet quite a bit during the day. In addition, I am climbing in and out of my postal truck. These sock are long lasting and very comfortable. They keep my feet warm in winter and cool in the summer. The padding makes for a comfortable fit inside my tennis shoes. And it that's not enough abuse for my socks, when I get home, I take off my shoes and leave my socks on. When I go to bed, in the wintertime, they are what I wear to bed to keep my feet toasty.

    Just finished a walk in these!


    Love the roll top, my socks stayed in place while on a lengthy walk/hike. The bottom has lots of cushioning, but not too much that I feel that my shoes are too small. These socks are A+

    CEO, The Industrial Athlete, Inc.


    As an exercise physiologist and dedicated runner for the past 40 years, I give Thorlo rolltops ("the J") my highest endorsement and recommendation. I discovered Thorlo rolltops back in the early 80's. I have worn no other ever since; running, working, leisure (unless having to don a suit and tie); even during Michigan winters. Their cushioned sole provides terrific padding and they wear like iron. During my years as a hospital sports medicine department director and today, as CEO of a corporation providing corporate fitness/wellness management and industrial injury management services, I am always recommending Thorlo socks; especially "the J." How do I feel when I wear the J? Comfortable and energized!

    Great socks for walking!


    I use them for daily walks with dog. We average 3 miles every morning and the extra padding means my feet don't hurt when we are done.

    Very comfortable


    The socks are very cushioned but slightly too thick for my current walking shoes.

    Love my socks


    I love my Thorlos - they're the only socks I use when exercising. Very comfy and durable.
