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.

“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'm training for a half-marathon and started to have discomfort in one of my legs. First, the outside of my foot started hurting. Then, the inside of the tendon on my lower leg near my ankle started to hurt, possibly from me trying to overcompensate to ease the pain in my foot. After thinking about the pounding my legs were taking in training, I thought an extra cushion sock might help absorb some of the shock. Sure enough it did. These socks are great! I have run up to 12 miles in one training session in these socks and the pain has subsided. These are great for both running and everyday use as they are extremely comfortable. I highly recommend you give these a shot.

They may cost a little more than regular daily wear socks, but after LOVING my first bunch of Thorlo socks for at least 10 years--no exaggeration!!!--why would I waste my money on cotton-lycra socks that sag at the heals, wear out within a year or two, and don't pull on easily? Buy these socks and you will not be sorry!!!

After buying Thorlo socks for skiing, hiking, running, and other sports, I decided that if I loved them for those activities, why not get them for everyday wear? So I got them in beige, navy, and black to wear with jeans and khaki pants. The first set I got lasted at least 10 years--NO EXAGGERATION! Why would I ever change? These are slightly different than my original "daily wear" socks, but even more comfortable. Thanks for making a sock that is easy to pull on, never sags down into shoes, and lasts and lasts and lasts and...

I have been wearing Thorlo socks exclusively for twenty years. Yes,they are expensive but they are very comfortable,well padded and last like iron!

They are so comfortable. Their not itchy like most wool socks. Their very breathable. I use email all the time even just around the house. I would seriously buy then again. And you can't beat the price.

I've used many types of Thorlo designs, aside from other brands (wigwam, under armour), and these take the cake for long-distance runs. The look is kind of odd and dated, but that doesn't matter since they are no-show socks. I use both the Experia's and these, and the 84NRCMs take the cake. I ran 8 miles in them this past weekend and had none of the symptoms of a typical long run. The extra-thick padding does wonders when you are running for over an hour, and I can't recommend them enough.

Very good comfort, very good quality. My feet thank you

These socks are amazing. They wash and wear beautifully and are unbelievably comfortable.

These are the best cushioned socks for runnung. My feet used to hurt after running 5 miles. After wearing the Thorlos my feet do not hurt. I went out and bought a couple more pairs and I have told all my friends to also buy them.

I really love these socks. When I received them, it was questionable, but after my first run, I was in love. The padding is perfect for long hard runs and they breathe really well. I hope to purchase more in the future as soon as I can find a local store - I won't pay shipping on top of the price; but the price for the sock is worth it. Try a pair! You won't be disappointed! :)
