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.

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 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 wore these socks in an old pair of hiking shoes and fell in love with them. My husband has been wearing Thorlos for many years and I have say they are now my favorite. They are so worth what you pay.

    Best anklet sock on the market.


    I have been wearing Thorlo socks for the past 26 years. For the first 23 years it was the boot socks; I ditched the GI socks for Thorlos while working for Uncle Sam. The quality is outstanding. You can buy cheaper socks, but you can't buy better ones.

    They never wear out!


    I was given a pair ten years ago. No other sock has ever lasted this long with the constent wear and wash I give them. I found your website last month and took the free pair offer. I will purchase more, and remember them for gift giving, too. Superb construction...excellent for sports and everyday wear...feel soooo comfortable and---- U.S. made! Thanks, Thorlo, for leading the way!

    No pain!


    I choose the distance walker pink. I'm a former walker with painful feet and on pain meds, but I still can't stand to be on my feet all day. I wore these socks with doctor ordered Crocs and explored the Titanic exhibit and Aquarium, among others for an all day adventure. I had no pain in my feet! I'm going to buy more. I even showed them to my podiatrist.

    World's best socks.


    Thorlo has been my sock for over 20 years. At 72 I walk a half hour every day and my Thoelos allow me to do it in more comfort than any other sock I have found. They are soft and comfortable but they wear like iron. They are expensive but they last for years. I wear nothing else.

    I've worn these for years and enjoyed getting some new ones.....With new ones I was able to enjoy the comfort of the extra custom that had worn down on my old ones. I purchased some for my brother and now he too can enjoy the extra cushion.
