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.

    Best socks ever!

    By

    These socks provide padding in all the right places. I wear them with all my walking/running shoes, and I won't wear any other kind of socks. They last for years no matter how many times they are washed. These are the best.

    Very comfortable, well padded with a good fit. Love them so much that I will probably use them for hiking as well.

    I’ve got an idea

    By

    Let’s continue to do nothing and offer the only thick cushion running sock manufactured in “old man” white. Does Thorlo even have a marketing department? If so, what do they do all day?! (I need that job) How about getting in the current century and offering these socks in black?

    Great quality

    By

    Like I'm walking on a cloud. I've worn Thorlos for years and have recommended them to many people who also loved them. Because of plantar problem, I decided to order the thicker socks for more heel cushioning, and these new ones are wonderful. They are rather expensive for socks, but well worth every penny. I will continue to buy and wear them as well as recommend them.

    Best socks!

    By

    I have worn these socks every day for more than 10 years. These are the only socks I can wear for 10-12 hours in boots or sneakers and not have a sore back at the end of the day. They are fabulous.

    Very good padded socks to help with Fat Pad Atrophy

    By

    I have started using the socks as I have Fat Pad Atrophy and it is helping me walk with out the pain in my heel. I'm using the socks with my new orthotic pads from my Podiatrist. The 2 seem to be working together.

    No slippage or bunching but simply walking on air.
