  • 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.

    Sizing is incorrect


    These socks are too small! No way are they sized correctly to Euro size 40. Dreadful shame as I love my Thorlos.

    hiking socks most padded


    My feet (and I!) feel good wearing Thorlos hiking socks. I had plantar fasciitis five years ago (suffered with it for four years previously). These socks provide the cushioning and support (along with supportive boots and custom orthotics) that I need. The socks work, they really play their part. Thank you Thorlos!

    Socks purchased


    No different that when I use regular socks. I was very disappointed when I used it as it did not do what it is supposed to do, I had sore heels and ball.

    Cuddle your feet.


    These socks provide snuggly and cushiony padding. They are the only socks I wear now when hiking or on my feet for long periods of time.

    Truly, I live in these socks


    I live on my feet, and foot comfort is key to me. Occasionally I wear sandals - no socks then. Otherwise, I'm in my Thorlos, smiling.

    Cushions Sore Feet


    I love the way the socks feel. They definitely help prevent sore feet. My feet are very flat, and I have a bone on one foot that sticks out, making most shoes uncomfortable until I break them in. My only complaint is that I was hoping for a navy sock, but this one is a bright blue, which definitely signals that it's a sporty sock.

    great cushioned socks


    I think they are great to hike in but also great while walking on hard floors around the house!
