Functional Effectiveness – Thorlos are designed to provide the best price/value proposition

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 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 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 wife recently purchased a walking shoe and the retailer recommend a pair of Thorlo walking socks. I was very interested in their design and decided to buy some for myself. I went to the Thorlo web site and ordered three pairs. I have been working on walking in order to improve my health by walking and losing weight. My daily goal is 10,000 steps (5 miles). I have be able to increase my number of daily steps and miles because of my new Thorlo walking socks. I now average 15,000 steps and 7 miles per day without any foot problems. In fact, the second day after trying out my new Thorlos I was able to walk over 11 miles (26,000+ steps) without any foot problems. I have now been walking every day over the past 5 months and have lost 30+ pounds. My blood pressure has decreased to an acceptable level and I look forward to my daily walk with my wife. Thank you, Thorlos. Barry Turska

Even though these socks are marketed for people who do not experience foot pain, it certainly helps with mine. I recently discovered this after running a 7.5 mixed terrain run wearing these socks. Two days later, I wanted to do a 5-6 mile run and put on my old not Thorlo brand cotton socks. I could barely run two miles. I had pain on the top of my foot that radiated up the front of my ankle. Looking back, I realized the times when I experience this pain are the same times I was wearing the cotton socks. Thorlo's have changed running from a painful activity to one I look forward to and crave! Thank you awesome socks!

I have been ordering the anti-fatigue socks for my Paratrooper son for a few years now so that when I was offered a free pair of these socks I was excited to try them! I got my free pair and I loved them so much that I went back online and ordered four more pair - I just wish I had ordered enough for one pair every day of the week! I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and these socks help my feet so much, they support my arches snugly, but room for my toes to wiggle. I cannot say how much I really love these socks!!! & on a side note, my Paratrooper son LOVES his anti-fatigue socks, that is what he requests for Christmas presents now!

I got these socks because of the offer as I thought it too much for just socks. What a pleasant surprise. Well worth the money.

I only wear Thorlo socks whether for running , walking, casual or dress. They are comfortable and long lasting. I have worn them for years. Try a pair!

Just ordering some more of these and looked through my order history to get the right item #. I last bought these exactly 2 years ago. I wear a pair daily, with a lot of walking. They have not faded at all (and I wear the black ones) and have lost no elasticity; they stay up all day long. Except for a couple of new worn spots caused by a pair of new boots, they look like new. These are by far the most extraordinary socks you'll ever buy, and worth every bit you pay for them.

Generally, we don't appreciate great socks. Like so many things in life, they are taken for granted. And, therefore, we don't want to spend serious money on them. Think again! Great socks make a huge difference and, when paired with excellent, well-fitted shoes, these make a big difference in your comfort - or, if you prefer, your dis-comfort. Like good wine, life is too short to go without good socks! Carpe Diem!
