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.

Evidenced-based Benefits – Thorlos have been clinically shown to reduce blisters, reduce foot pain, reduce pressures and wick moisture

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.

“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.

    Feet feel good in these socks.


    I bought these socks for my son who works in the construction field. He also complained of some foot problems. He loved the socks and their comfort. I will continue to get these socks for him.

    Feels Like I'm Walking On Air


    The cushioning of these socks is awesome. From the moment I put them on I knew I would love them. The only complaint I have is that from time to time they do itch. It may be more me and less them so I won't knock them too hard over it. They were a great purchase!

    This is an excellent product for anyone who does a lot of walking/standing, particularly on urban hard surfaces. Very comfortable and durable. Highly recommend.

    My new faves for hiking/backpacking!


    I took advantage of Thoro's trial pair of socks and couldn't be happier. I only had opportunity to wear them once so far but can already tell that these provide amazing support, warmth, moisture control and cushion for my tootsies. I've already been recommending them to my friends and family... Thanks for the trial pair! You've hooked me.

    Blisters be gone!!


    I immediately felt the increased cushiness and softness of the sock. It fit snugly so I knew there was something of quality wrapping my foot instead of some cheap cotton gauze. I did some extended walking around San Francisco on a family outing wearing them and whereas usually I'd have a couple of blisters and aching feet by the end of the day, with these socks in the same shoes, no blisters and slightly tired feet instead of aches and pains.

    Very comfortable


    The socks fit well and feel great. My feet feel immensely better with these socks after a day of hiking than they did with other socks. They're more expensive than your average sock, but definitely worth it. Looking forward to getting more.

    Best boot socks, EVER


    I wore these for the last decade of my military career. Nothing compares to these, hands down. These socks made all the difference while at sea and wearing heavy steel toe boots for 14 - 18 hours a day in the Persian Gulf. Well worth the price!

    It's like having new feet


    For 10+ years I have had foot pain due to flat feet, overpronation, and arthritis. This was the first day in years I didn't have to limp because of pain. All the money I've spent on shoes over the years only to find that that the key is to have both a great pair of shoes AND a great pair if socks. Honestly, I had absolutely no idea the difference these socks would make until today when I walked the entire day without any pain. Time to get rid of my old socks and stock up on these.

    A reliable product


    I've been using Thorlos for many years and have never been disappointed in the product. I've used them for jogging, for hiking, and lately as a cushion for poor, aching feet.
