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 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.

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.

    Most comfortable & durable sock ever!


    I first purchased these socks for running years ago. Now these are all I wear. I was surprised how comfortable a sock could be. I love the cushioned bottom and the thinner top of the sock. They also last forever. They are well worth the investment in comfort and durability.

    Extended Walking made a breeze


    These really are great socks, well worth the expense. I'd tried tried a number of varieties, trying to find a sock that really helped make walking for a long time easier--the search has ended with these. Simply excellent product!

    Best work socks ever


    I'm on my feet doing remodeling work for at least 10 hours a day, and before I discovered these socks my feet hurt all the time. While it did not make the hurt go away completely, Thorlo Light Hiking Socks has delivered me relief so the hurt was not the focal point of my daily life. I've been using these socks for 10+ years and they just rock - and they are definitely worth the premium, especially as they last 10 times longer than standard "off the shelf" socks Thank you, Thorlo!

    Can't walk without them!


    From desert combat, walking, basketball, hiking, volleyball to golf... You will "never" catch me wearing anything else unless someone has stolen my Thorlos or I don't have way to clean my Thorlos... I have worn them in Bosnia, Iraq, work State side, and all over Europe. If your feet hurt like mine did wearing combat and steel toed boots you can't do better than Thorlos to keep youself on your feet and moving with the 20 something's... Harold W. "TRACER" Valentine

    excellent dsiabetic socks


    Bought some "Wal-Mart" diabetic socks but they slid down my foot when walking. I had used Thurlo for years for hiking and work but did not think of them for diabetic socks. They are just as good as the boot and work socks and stay on my foot properly when I walk. Well worth the price.

    Thorlo OTC Basketball Socks


    I've worn Thorlos for over 20 years now. They cost more than most other socks, but they are worth every penny of it and more -- they are an exceptional value. There are a few things life that you spend a great deal of time in (or on -- your bed and pillow, for example) and for me those are things that you should not scrimp on. I feel good (and so do my feet!) every time I put on a pair of my Thorlos. What I like most: excellent padding on the bottoms and heels, just the right amount of elasticity over the calves, very long lasting.

    Comfortable, long lasting, great fit


    I bought one pair of these socks several years ago. When I realized that I reach for my Thorlos first, and curse (nicely) when they're in the hamper, I decided to stock up and replace my less-loved socks (too short, tight, scratchy). Because the local shoe store didn't carry the color I wanted, I went to the website and discovered Thorlos buy three get one free promo. Since my socks have shown up, I've worn them exclusively, I know from experience that the new Thorlos will fit comfortably and last for a long time. Great socks!

    These are the best socks I've ever had - I hate to think of all the money I spent trying to find the socks I finally found at Thorlo. They're worth every penny - and the promo's are a good value.
