  Key Findings:

  • 25.6% pressure reduction compared with participants’ own socks

  • For people with healthy feet, Thorlos significantly reduced pressures in the ball of the foot

Key Findings:

  • The denser padded sock with acrylic fibers reduces excess moisture through enhanced wicking
    and provides an optimal moisture environment…resulting in significantly drier foot perception
    compared to cotton socks.
