    Mixed feelings

    By

    The good: They are comfortable and cushion the bottoms of my feet. The bad: They "pill" a lot when washed in the machine and dried in the gas dryer. That makes me wonder how durable they will be.

    Best socks for hiking (winter or summer)

    By

    I am a 58 year old Geologist who still hikes many miles. With my light summer boots, I just need the KX, and my feet feel fantastic. In the fall and winter when I am lumber jacking (clearing trails) I wear thin cotton socks as a first layer. This keeps my heavy steel toe and side shank boots from chafing my foot. The high heal pad protects my Achilles Heel tendon. JJ

    Best socks for work or play

    By

    I feel great. These are my go to socks. I tossed out my other brands and now only wear Therlos. I only buy Therlos in grey, black or white depending on what I'm doing thst day. I wear them for work and play. Therlos are very comfortable for tennis, hiking or general use. I must have 20 pairs.

    Best sox I've used for hiking

    By

    For several years I have been trying to find the right sock for hiking. Merino wool socks would make my feet sweat too much. Thin socks would keep my feet cool but my feet hurt before I finished the hike. Wearing two socks made my feet too hot. I bought one pair of these socks and they are perfect. I am about to buy a couple of more pairs today.

    Best sock ever

    By

    I thought socks were all the same until I started wearing Thorlos. I just could not find a shoe that wouldn't cause me pain at the end of the day. I thought the more expensive the shoe the better they would feel, wrong. It's the sock that makes the difference. If your feet hurt by the end of the day, the next day is going to be worse. I've read reviews about price, they cost to much, well do you think about cost if you can't stand or walk because of sore feet or blisters. Nope.

    Walking at Trade Shows

    Since I have been wearing Thorlo socks, I haven't had one blister from walking trade shows. Standing all day in dress shoes is hard on your feet but these socks make it tolerable.
