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 THORLON® and a Merino Wool/Silk blend for insulation, and superior softness, resilience, durability and moisture-wicking for drier, better feeling feet.
  • Cushioned instep and arch for a better fit, more support and less pressure on the feet for a more comfortable day hike.
  • 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 the feet.
  • Unique padding specifically engineered for light hiking, clinically shown to reduce blisters, pain, pressures and moisture.
  • Ventilation panel for extra moisture control and breathability.

    My overall favorite socks!


    Try this experiment: Put on a pair of non-Thorlo socks and your favorite pair of hiking or everyday shoes. Walk around and notice how your feet feel... Now do the same, but with a pair of Thorlo WLTHW socks in place of the others. Notice how different your feet feel! I've tried a few different of the Thorlo styles--and the WLTHW Light Hiking Socks with Merino wool and silk and by far my absolute favorite of any socks, Thorlo or non-Thorlo. They are my every day socks as well as my hiking socks!

    Best hiking socks I've found!


    Not only are these the best hiking socks--they are my favorite everyday socks! They go way beyond simply feeling comfortable, they actually make me feet feel wonderful! Try on a pair with your favorite shoes--then try on any other socks with the same shoes and you'll feel a very noticeable difference!

    looking for boot socks that don't slip


    I love these socks. They are so soft and stay in place. I wear them with my boots and they stay in place. They are thick but not so thick that my boots felt snug. I also bought some for my daughter in law and she loved them. On a cold day they keep my feet warm but are also okay to wear on a warmer day. I plan to wear these in summer with my motorcycle boots, .

    Best Socks for Hiking in Arizona


    I love this particular combination of wool and silk. It keeps my feet warm and dry in cold weather (down to freezing) and cool and dry in the summer. The sock has the perfect amount of padding for me - no sizing up in my boots. I use these socks for hiking and horseback riding. In the past, more colors were offered in the smallest women's size (heathered blue and heathered grey) and I miss the variety. These socks are durable and launder well.

    Best socks I have ever had!


    These socks are simply the best! I am cursed with cold feet and have purchased every sock known to man. These are worth every penny. My feet stay warm and dry. I open my very full sock drawer and I reach for my Thorlos every time. They are comfortable and come out of the washer/dryer beautifully. They do not shrink. Folks, do not hesitate to buy these socks.
