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.
“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 have been buying these socks for years. They are the best golf and running/walking socks that I have found. Once in a while I am tempted into buying some new mfg's product and always just waste my money. They aren't cheap, but you get what you pay for.

I have worn Thorlos for many years. Most importantly, this is the 3rd combat deployment they have been on my feet. They last longer than any sock I have ever owned and due to their longevity alone are well worth the price. If you are a Soldier looking for boot socks, these will impress you.

I have been wearing Thorlos for over 20 years and these new models are just as great if not better than some of the older socks they let your foot breathe better and just so comfortable. i wear my Thorlos everyday even for work because they are just so comfortable and the best part is that they last forever! you can buy a pack of socks for what one pair of Thorlos cost but those sox will not last anywhere as long as a pair of Thorlos, Thorlos are a quality product made to last and worth every penny!

These socks fit great and never wear out. I just bought some on-line to replace the four pairs I bought five years ago but haven't taken them out since I just can't justify tossing the old ones yet. I run almost every single day of the year and the socks see the heat of summer, the snow of Michigan winters, and even annual runs to Mount Zion in Jamaica. Never a thought during any run of my socks.

Have approximately 10 pairs of Thorlos socks that i have purchased over the last 4 years. The oldest pairs are now deteriorating just due to the amount of wear they go thru. I will only buy the Thorlos product. Tired of the expensive socks that do not hold up maybe a year

I've been running for 40 years. I weigh 190# so I need good cushioning, comfort, and durability. These Thorlo sox provide all of the above. I also wear size 14 shoes. These larger-sized sox fit perfectly, they wick away sweat, and they stay in place (they do not slide down inside my shoes) as I run. I have tried many different brands and styles. These Thorlos are the only sox that work well.

These literally last for years. I consider them even more important than my shoes.

They're expensive but worth every penny!

I love these socks. Over the years, I have no idea how many pair of Thorlo socks I've worn out, but it's been quite a few. And it's not because the socks wear out easily. I just wear them out.

My husband has been wearing these socks for the last seven years. He will not even consider wearing another brand. The softness and pading around the heel and toes even make uncomfortable shoes wearable. The quality and durability is outstanding. The price is high for a pair but well worth it. I purchase seven to 10 pair at a time and will not have to buy any more until September 2014 or March 2015. Sorry Thorlo. If other companies and products followed Thorlo's standard, and was made in the U.S.A., then the "feel goodism" for our country would be real and not fake. Thank you, Thorlo!!!!!!
