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.
“This is only my second time ordering because these socks LAST. I have other socks that wear thin in a year and get pitched. Worth the money considering the quality.” Kendra L.
Evidenced-based Benefits – Thorlos have been clinically shown to reduce blisters, reduce foot pain, reduce pressures and wick moisture

THORLON has wonderful wicking properties and completely prevents blisters. Doesn't matter how warm your feet are when you take Thorlos off because your feet are dry!!” Peg G.
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.
“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.

I am not a runner, but am an ER nurse who spends many hours on my feet. These socks helped compress and helped my feet feel so much better. They wicked all moisture and cushioned all pressure points. Thank you!

This socks feel great, look great and wash well. I would recommend them to a friend. They are somewhat expensive as socks go, but they are worth the extra money for the comfort.

In the past I have purchased and wore cheaper, lesser quality socks. This is precisely why I can sing the praises of these well designed, high quality socks. 1) They stay up. They do not slouch off your calf and wind up down around you ankles. The extra spandex through out the top is comfortable, not tight. It provides support perfectly. 2) They are long enough. They actually go up over your calf to the bottom of your knee area. They fit like an adult knee high. 3) They are fitted for your foot. 4) Your feet feel warm and dry. 5) I wear boots and am on my feet standing or walking on concrete floors about half of my work day. The moderate cushioning is perfect for comfort and support. 6) Day after day, wash after wash, year after year, the quality holds up. 7) I know these are great socks because when I wear them I don't ever think about my feet. I am just focused on my job. Excellent, excellent product. Thank you Thorlo!

As a salesperson (automotive) on my feet for several hours each day, I can personally attest to the fact that these over-the-calf THOROLO's socks reduce stress and provides comfort that I've found in no other sock. None.
02/14/14 | By Mark V .
I never really thought about how much socks affected my comfort, but after hearing my friend rave about Thorlo socks, I had to give it a try. I am very impressed by the comfort, the breath-ability and just how much better my feet feel while wearing these socks. I am a fan!! Thank you Andy and Thorlo!

I wore Thorlos for years for sports. As I got into my 50's, my feet didn't like the pounding they took wearing dress shoes. I found out Thorlo made padded dress socks and I've worn them exclusively ever since. They look dressy, are very soft, and wear like iron, far longer than the Gold Toe socks I was wearing. They are not cheap, but they really are a great value.

These socks are now my official favorite!!! Can a sock be magic? I don't know if that's possible, but my new Thorlos are very, very close to being magical. My feet actually FEEL better when I have them on. And they wash and dry perfectly. What more can one ask of their socks? ;) I will be purchasing more in the future! Thanks for a superior product, Thorlos!

I figured that hey its free, I give them a try. I am impressed and my feet are loving activity again. I'm on my feet 10-16 plus hours 6 out of seven days and then my day off from work I am taking care of three rambunctious grand kids. I will be ordering at least three more pair this payday and then three more one the next. They are NOT inexpensive but VERY well worth it!! With the hot 90-100+ days coming and walking on asphalt will now be a breeze. Thank You Thorlo RC Lyon

I work 10 hour shifts and I stand and walk for 9 of those hours. I have had caluses and plantar fasciitis and these socks made a big difference in how my feet felt at the end of my long days at work. Highly recommended!

Ok, I confess. I don't use these socks for hiking. I have wide feet and they're just a little too thick for me. BUT.... I work from home and in the cold season I always wear my Thorlos while I work. They are the most durable, comfortable, warm socks money can buy, period!
