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.

“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.

    Most comfortable and durable sock for everyday, walking and hiking.


    12 years ago I hiked from the Canadian border to Salt Lake City wearing Thorlo socks. I never had blisters, my feet were dry and the light cushioning kept my feet comfortable even on 24 mile days. My husband and I have worn no other make of socks since and use the Thorlo Light Walking socks for every day wear, power walking and hiking (they did quite well up and back, Portal to Mt. Whitney summit, in one day quite nicely too.

    Wonderful for working!


    My daughter works in a place where she is on her feet most of the day, these socks help her feet and legs so much. She doesn't get the painful, sharp pains going up her legs or the cramps in her feet anymore. Wish I had found these sooner!!! Well worth the money!!

    The only really short socks that don't fall down!


    Walking in casual shoes or sneakers my Hanes and Champion socks slid down under my heels. My Thorlo J's stay up walking or running. They add extra cushion and keep my feet dry. They're the best short socks for my money!

    great socks for tennis


    I love wearing these socks for tennis. Our local podiatrist recommended Thorlo socks to me a few years ago when I was having foot problems. These socks have helped tremendously.

    Perfect! Like all other Thorlo socks


    I have been wearing Thorlo socks for over 18 years, and these are another example of socks made perfectly for whatever you do. Best fit in the industry - hands down. I have some Thorlos that have lasted almost 10 years - and these seem of that same quality. It's the only brand of sock I wear - period. Thanks for making my feet feel amazing!

    Temporal pair-a-socks


    I bought a pair of these at the Rock and Roll marathon expo Saturday in San Diego. I first thought 15 bucks for a pair of socks? BEST 15 DOLLARS I EVER SPENT. The following day I ran the marathon; I come to find out I had no blisters. Thanks!

    Love the cushioning!


    The cushioning on these socks feels great - really helps me with my Burton's neuroma. Training for a half marathon I put in a lot of miles!

    My new favorite socks


    I'm in the Army and recently purchased 3 pair of the KX socks in anticipation of doing a 25 mile rucksack march with a 35 pound pack and assorted combat kit. I wore these socks during the train up marches with no problems at all. As a matter of fact, these socks made my feet feel like they were wrapped in pillows. Last night I completed the 25 mile ruck, rotating through the 3 pair of KX socks every 7 miles, and I had no problems with my feet at all. I normally will get hot spots and blisters after 8-10 miles. These are the best socks I've ever worn and I won't ever go back to standard Army issue socks. Thank you for making this great product.

    I will Live & Die in These


    I rarely write reviews but I love these socks. They are super comfortable and dry and not too warm because they wick. I've been wearing these and their previous version of Thor-lon based black casual socks for 8 years. I've bought, used and worn out Thorlo's running and hiking socks as well and love them, but these are the most comfortable. They are a thicker sock but they work fine for me in the same size shoe. I wear them every day to work. They are expensive but they've lasted me at least 4 years wearing each pair once/week. I look for the Buy-3-Get-4th-Free sales every May & Dec. I highly recommend them. I've told my wife to bury me in them.
