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

“Thorlos are the best socks on the market. Quality is top notch, they last a long time, the cushion is great and they are MADE IN THE USA! 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.
“You cannot beat the performance and comfort of these socks. Buying them online is fast and easy. You won't be sorry you tried these socks if you like thick, comfortable, long lasting socks! And best of all they are made in the USA.” Gary B

“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 wore my feet out walking two miles then dancing for hours on concrete to Paul McCartney a few weeks ago. For my foot pain hangover the next morning, I tucked my sadly worn out tootsies into a pair of thick, cushy new Thorlos and tied on a pair of comfortable sneakers. Blissful relief, my feet soon recovered and were singing... a new tune. These are the best socks ever, I always check the washer to make sure I have both socks together then dry them on the rack because I love them for making my feet feel like it's 1962.

The black steel-toe socks are the best! I have been buying my son these socks for years now and I'm never disappointed in the quality of the socks or the excellent service I receive. I highly recommend these socks and thorlo.com.

These socks are well worth the money. Excellent padding. I walk 4+ miles 6 days a week, and would probably not be able to do so without good walking shoes and these socks. Do not hesitate to purchase these socks for excellent wear and comfort.

I've been diabetic for about 12 years now, and I take insulin. In the beginning, I had some mild burning sensations in my feet, but no pain. I am very active, especially a lot of walking. I immdediately went out to find socks that could protect my feet. Thorlo was the brand that the sales person recommended, and I've been wearing them ever since. Now, my blood sugar is under control and I have no problems with my feet, but I still want the extra protection. If you're diabetic, get your blood sugar under control, and get Thorlo socks. They are not cheap, but they last longer than most other socks.

Thorlo socks are the highest quality money can buy. The only reason I don't wear Thorlos exclusively is due to the limited selection of styles. Made in America!!!

Perhaps 5 or 6 Years ago I purchased 3 pairs of Thorlos Socks at a high end Show Store. They IMMEDIATELY became my favorite Socks. A few months later I decided I had to stock up on these beauties. The Store had closed. Bummer. After 5 0r 6 Years of truly constantly wearing, these masterpieces are still 100% of what they were the day I bought them - honestly, they are ASTONISHING! Thank goodness it finally dawned on me to try to find them on the Internet! I now have a Dozen Pairs of Thorlos Socks, and brag about them to anybody who will listen. I'm going to start giving them as Christmas Presents (to people I REALLY like!). Steve

Don't think twice about the price. They are costly, but worth every cent! Please stay in the US and I will continue to buy as long as I can afford to do so!

I have neuropathy due to nerve damage and these are the first socks to help. I will order again and cannot praise your product enough. Please continue your mission. Stay in the US and keep your quality. Life is short and you have made mine a little more tolerable as I have to stand to work. Thank you for being there!

I guess I've worn Thorlo's 20+ years. I have MS and have put these socks through a lot. The support,comfort and workmanship is unsurpassed. It took me years to convince my brother to try them well this past year not only did he finally slide them on he ordered 3 more pair after he wore them for a week. If you have never tried a pair on you'll never know what real support and comfort feels like. As my grandmother always said the most important part of your body is your feet, so I take care of mine how about you? Love my Thorlo's ....Marc B.
