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.

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 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.

    super comfortable


    I've been buying these socks for my husband for 20+ years and will continue to do so. They're the only socks he wears (except for dress, of course!). His feet are completely flat---no arch at all--so he has constant "issues." These socks are THE BEST he's found......comfort, comfort, comfort abounds for all his activities.

    Simply, the best!


    I have permanent deep vein thrombosis/swelling in my left leg that requires blood thinners. My cardiologist says I should wear compression, non-binding socks "more often than not" to prevent dangerous clot migration.These socks are by far the best combination of both top-shelf athletic footwear AND perfect compression I have ever worn. And they're less expensive and better cushioned than any nylon compression dress socks at the drug store. Aside from the significant medical benefit to me, they just feel fabulous and energize my aging legs! I'll be wearing them for life......

    Best Tennis Socks I Have Ever Owned!


    The quality of these socks is superb. I have owned them for about a month and have played about 20 times since purchasing these. The padding is exceptional, the product description describes the padding as being "Unique padding specifically engineered for tennis," I don't know if they are only for tennis because I bought a pair of their basketball socks and they are identical except for the color. Regardless, I agree the padding definately makes a big difference. Not only does the padding really seem to protect the bottom of my feet, but since it wraps around the toes it is really comfortable. My feet are definately more comfortable while playing with these socks on and are less tired after a few games. Have only had for 30 days, but they still look in great shape. You will not be sorry.
