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.

"These socks keep my feet warm but also dry. They're like nothing else I've found, worth the money.”  Robert F.

“I have worn these socks for years to work, at home and to bed. Love these socks, great fit, great support all day long, and wear forever wash after wash. Buy these socks and you will never buy any other sock.”  Kathy S.

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.

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.

“I LOVE ALL my Thorlo [padded] socks. These socks fit perfectly. They NEVER slide down during the entire day, yet they do not cut off your circulation. I have no interest in buying any other brand of sock.”  Dee Dee S.

“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.

    Most comfortable cushioned footbed


    For starters, Thorlo is my favorite brand of socks for over 15 years. Their socks are well designed and durable. While other brands suffer from unraveling over time, Thorlo constructs their products in such a way that if one thread begins to stray, it doesn't affect the entire sock. Just snip off the one thread and the rest of it stays together beautifully. As for the TMX Tennis Sock, it's exactly what I was looking for.....a unisex mini-crew with a comfortable cushioned footbed in the color black for travel. I especially like the interior of the sock which is smooth and free of bumps that might cause blisters or discomfort during wear. Although it's pricey, for the quality, it's well worth it. I will definitely be ordering more for myself and my spouse.

    funny feet


    My feet have been feeling "funny" for over year. I bring this to my doctor's attention and he prescribes gabapentin. It helped. I just found that I am not diabetic, but I still have that funny feeling in my feet. I decided to try the the socks for diabetes. I loved those so much I ordered more. Or thought I did. These are not the same socks, but they accomplish the same feet no longer feel funny when I put them on. Now it doesn't say if 10 is definetly would reccomend, but that is what I'm going with...

    My day to day and hiking go to sock.


    These socks are great! I've been wearing them for years. I wear them every day for work and for day hikes on the weekend. I buy ten pair every year of the same color and this is what I wear throughout the year.

    Best socks ever!


    They are like pillows for your feet. I will never buy another brand of socks again. They have made a huge difference in the pain I experience from plantar fasciitis.

    Awesome socks for being on my feet all day.


    I really enjoy these socks. I used to have such foot pain when just being on my feet all day cleaning this house or working. But now When I am on my feet for long periods with these socks on my feet feel good and don;t hurt like they did before. The socks feel really nice when they are on my feet and I love wearing them. At first when I saw them I thought wow these are to thick to were with my shoes on but the really are not and they don't feel thick when they are on they just feel really good and comfortable.

    "Hunters" socks


    All thorlos are indescribably wonderful. These are perhaps the best. Warm yet breathing open-loop inside, & cushiony heel and forefoot make them perfect for nearly any activity-including sleeping- most of the year for me. And, of course, they're wholly synthetic, which I like. Thanks for maintaining such high quality & offering variety for all feet!

    Does not slide down into shoes


    I was prepared to be disappointed once more so I had low expectations when ordering these for the first time. I wanted socks that were comfortable and that would not slide down into my shoe when walking vigorously. I have not had much success finding these. I used this pair every second day for over a week and washed them after each use. I was so thrilled with the results, I ordered 6 more pairs. They have now become my favorite socks. Great quality too.
