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.

Benefits

  • 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.

    Walking on clouds!

    I do love my new socks. I work in rain boots and as we know they are not the most comfortable shoes to spend hours walking and standing. My new super padded socks make my feet and me so much happier. The extra cushioning makes rain boots almost feel like tennis shoes! I highly recommend them to any one looking for some extra comfort!

    Best socks for me.

    By

    I have a lot of foot pain, arthritis, spurs and a broken toe that never healed right. I was looking for socks for an upcoming trip. Actually was looking for hiking socks. Found a store where Thorlos were sold. The hiking ones looked a little too thick for me, but I saw these. After reading the description of the padding and other customer reviews, I decided to buy and try a pair even though they were for running. My feet felt like heaven. Ended up getting 10 pairs and my feet have never been happier. Always looking for comfortable shoes not realizing socks can make a difference in my comfort also. They work for me. Thank you Thorlos.

    My Thorlos

    By

    I have worn nothing but Thorlo socks for almost 15 yrs. I don't even bother looking at other socks. These are the best for walking, and just every day stuff. They are comfortable, warm, and last. Yeah they may be a bit more expensive but they are so worth the money.

    What happened over the years? They have changed somehow, are less padded and comfortable.

    I just recently bought some Trekking socks from you (you have the order record, I'm sure). When they arrived, I really liked them, but later thought I'd add in a few pairs of the running socks just for variety. I seriously wish I had just bought more Trekkers. You know, the thick grey ones. They are fantastic. Even liked them so much, I bought some for a friend. I've been a Thorlo customer for many many years, mostly the tennis crew, of which I've bought so many I can even remember now, and I still have a drawer full of those. I was happy I decided to try the new thick Trekking socks, and unhappy at myself that I didn't stop there and not buy the running socks. But, that was my mistake. Now I have three pairs of socks I will likely not wear often, if at all. Oh well, that's what I get for being adventurous. But I've had such good luck with Thorlos in the past. Who would have thought? So, I only blame myself. But I did want to give you feedback. I've been praising your products for a long time now. This was my first disappointment.
