They have highlighted six different types of value you can count on from your Thorlos, and that’s why they consider Thorlos such a bargain.

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.

My family has been using Thorlos socks for years, and we will never use a different sock for hiking. We hike almost every day. They are soft, comfy & very durable. One day I forgot & hiked in a different sock, and my feet definitely let me know about it. I am very cautious not to let that happen again. You will be very pleased with this sock. We will never switch to another sock!

I started wearing the Thorlo Running sock close to 20 years ago. It had cushioning like no other sock offered at that time, which my foot needed, and an excellent fit that did not bunch up causing blisters. Also good wicking. I've tried other socks since then but they lacked the fit and durability of this sock. I have found that cheaper socks are not a good deal because they wear out years before my thorlo sock. If there is a better running sock for my feet, I haven't found it.

Love these socks. I can't even remember how long I have been wearing them. But I will not buy any other brand. If you walk any distance at all these are the bests socks hands down. And I walk 10 miles at least three times a week or more. And when I am finished I could still walk more if I wanted. I got turned on to these socks from a SAS shoe store in Pigeon Forge, Tn. They were a new product to them and so I bought a pair and wore them the next day. I went back to the store and bought more. I just fell in love with them. They may be higher in price but you can not beat the quality of these socks. And yes indeed your feet will feel better. What can I say, but I love these socks. Thanks for making a great product. A very happy and loyal customer. Vicki Parker Mabe
Thor-Lo socks don't skimp on material or technique. They're designed and made to support activities from napping in the cold to pounding down hot pavements in the summertime. They're just right, never too hot or too cold, never too tight or too loose, no chafing or abrasions, just fine, fine footwear. I've worn them for years and hope to do so for years to come.

I have been using the walking socks for sometime and more recently I have been using the golf socks. The best you can get for support and comfort....worth every penny

I bought these for my wife for Xmas. She had 2 pair and loved them and when we went back to the store to get more they didn't carry them anymore. They might be on the higher end price wise but for something as important to your health as your feet it's well worth the money.

I have been wearing Thorlo socks for over 20 years now, in fact, they are the only socks I wear. As an aging athlete who is still active in many different sports I find them to be second to no others. Although they may be more expensive than others, they last for many years because of the extensive padding. I love my Thorlo's and will never wear anything but. Steve Shrader

My first pair of Thorlo's came from an unlikely source...a garage sale ! I bought a new uopened pair of running socks for $1, From that time on I have been hooked. I especially love them for my exercise class and wearing when on a vacation that involves a lot of walking. My feet feel fine when others are complaining about feet hurting and being tired. I buy the runnning socks for the padding that is in the sole....never in my life have I used them for running. That was in another lifetime. I have often recommended these socks to friends. I feel the socks one wears are as important as the shoes one wears. Oh yes, they last and last !

I was introduced to thorlos when I sold shoes many years ago. When my son joined the Army one of the first things I bought him was the khaki hiking socks. They help so much on his hikes and just every day wear. Eight years later he is a Staff Sargent, and his thorlos have been to Afghanastan, Iraq, Germany, and now Africa. They are his favorite Christmas present as well as birthday. They are the best socks on the market bar none, we are a thorlo family.
