Functional Effectiveness – Thorlos are designed to provide the best price/value proposition
"These are the first socks I've ever worn that both comfort my abused feet, stay up all day without slippage and yet do not constrict my calves. Love these socks!! Worth every penny.” Susan J.

Durability – Thorlos are designed to last
“Since I bought my first pair of Thorlos socks, I have bought no other brand. The quality and comfort are unique. I buy a fraction of the socks I used to buy because Thorlos last so long. I am sure I am paying less for socks because of that. Even after months of use and washings, these look great and fit well.” Richard B.
"I wear these socks to work every day. I manage a large vineyard so in the course of my job I do a fair amount of walking each day and I have found these to be the most comfortable socks I have ever used. They may be a little more expensive than other brands but I will wear them three to four times longer and they still feel good after years of service.” Rand D.
"I have worn Thorlo for at least 20 years. Nothing out there will stand up to the punishment of these socks. I don't have to buy but every 5 to 6 years. I love your socks! " Brent S.

Satisfaction/Enjoyment – Thorlos foot protection provides unsurpassed comfort
“Anybody who is active in sports or spends a lot of time on their feet should invest in Thorlos [padded] socks as their product isn't just another pair of socks. They're engineered for maximum comfort in whatever sport or use they're designed for. If you're into tennis or running, you have a lot invested in your feet and footwear and clothing .It makes sense not to skimp on your socks after you've tried on a pair of their socks as their socks are the only brand I'll wear because after I discovered them ,I'd never wear anything else-they're that good!!” Stephen M.

“Our whole family of five wears Thorlo socks, you won't get a better sock anywhere! Definitely worth the investment...I guarantee you that you will be in love with these [padded] socks and will never buy others ever again.” Shari M.
“I don't wear any other [padded] socks unless all of my Thorlos are dirty!! Until I tried Thorlos, I thought "socks" were "socks". NOT!! I have some Thorlos that I have been wearing....probably weekly or almost.....for over 10 years! No other socks compare as far as I am concerned. I wear them for hiking, backpacking, hunting, fishing, work, play...every day! Don't mess with my Thorlos! Buy some. I guarantee if you don't like them, you can give them to me!” Brent M.
“I bought these as a gift for a retired football player. He introduced me to Thorlos and guaranteed they were the best socks ever. He was right!” Rebecca T.
Service – Thorlos customer service matches our product performance
“I just wanted to send a quick note to say that Becky Bass is the most helpful customer service rep I've worked with, out of any business I've called or emailed! She was so nice, and an A+ example of terrific customer service. I'll definitely keep coming back to Thorlos. Thanks so much!” Sarah B.
“I rarely take time to do these kinds of things, but I want to bring to your attention the excellent (actually unbelievable) customer service that I received from Susan Graham. The details are available from her, but I had a small issue with placing a web order, and Susan went above and beyond to assist me. Her customer service, in short, was the best I have ever received from any company, period. This quality reflects well on both your leadership and the company.” Scott C.
“I am a Disney trained customer service "nut". I will not give my business to those that don't give OUTSTANDING customer service. Susan Graham just topped everyone that I have done business with in several years. Her caring and concern for her customer is very apparent. My business won't make or break your organization. However, if Susan's attitude is representative of your company's culture THORLO is in good hands.” Ronald P.

Great cushioning, great fit, and they hold up very well after months of wearing and washing. These are perfect socks!!

From playing tennis many years ago...to children...skiing, running, footies-to just wear around the house, great presents!... Thorlo is worth every penny-thank you. Only suggestion-My mother (80) has swollen feet more often than not at her age. She loves! the tennis socks as footies but not enough give on top-so she cuts them on top for more room circulation...even loargest men's size, but still doesn't work...is their one that has more give at the front? This would be great new product-if you don't have one yet.. Thank you, ~Pamela

Sometimes you find a product that renders everything else superfluous; that's why I only have Thorlos in my sock drawer.

I wear these every single day. I accidentally found them through a hiker's blog, and decided to try them. The company sent me a free pair to try, but after reading several other blogs, I decided to go ahead and buy them. I've been hiking with a full pack (5 miles a day) to train for the Appalachian Trail, and I don't even want to look at another sock! I have had absolutely no blisters, or even hot spots, even carrying 35 lbs. Love them, love them, love them. I even wear a clean pair to sleep at night because my feet used to get cold and cramp, and I haven't had that problem since wearing these wonderful socks.

I've worn Thorlo's for well over 18+ years and would't wear anything else. I am in the fitness industry so I live in my running shoes and am on my feet moving ALL DAY LONG. Nothing is more comfortable and also allows my poor feet & toes to breath. It's a a constant struggle not to wear them when I go out with my nice shoes - haha. Thx

These were very comfortable and very well worth getting them. I will need to get more
03/07/14 | By Jerry W .
These are the most comfortable socks and seem to be quite durable. Wish they were a little bit more within my budget :(
03/03/14 | By David T .
I wear Thorlos almost every day and they are worth every penny.

These are wonderful, American made socks. They may cost a bit more, but they are worth it. They last, keep their shape and make your feet feel divine.

These little rascals fit well and don't like to move around. Some of my older pairs I just replaced, and not because they were full of holes or falling apart. Oh no, even the elastic for the ankle was still perfect. But after 4 years of constant use they slowly wore thin and just lost some cushioning. But eventually all good things come to an end, so I broke down and bought some more. I gave a pair to a friend who sure loved them, but this guy has probably spent a gillion more bucks on socks over the years than I. So now he can have at least one pair that does the job and last all day for a lot of days. For work or hiking, Thorlo gives me the best bang for the buck and they look good doing it, even in sandals. Thanks Thorlo
