Functional Effectiveness – Thorlos are designed to provide the best price/value proposition

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 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.

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.

    Best Tennis Sock


    I have worn Thorlo tennis socks for years, and I was delighted to find this style with a little color. I started using Thorlo socks when I developed plantar fasciitis from all the pounding on hard courts. These socks protect my feet, and I never get blisters, etc. from playing. I do know that some players think the sock is too heavy and therefore hot, but the comfort factor outweighs that for me. These socks are soft and comfy but wear like iron. BTW - service from this site was excellent.

    Great socks!


    My husband and I have been wearing Thorlo sock for years. I discovered this particular sock about one year ago and now have six pairs. They have a soft, thick foot section that hugs your foot and feels very good. They come right up to the knee which is what I was looking for. They wash well and, if like all of my other Thorlos, will last for years. And they do not slide down your leg as you wear them as the elastic section is very good, just like all my other Thorlos.

    Foot pain relief!!


    I bought these for my daughter. She was experiencing major foot pain while on her feet all day at work. She said these are amazing-like a miracle.

    Best socks for any activity.


    Wearing Thorlos makes your feet feel great. No slipping or movement of sock regardless of activity. Wore these socks daily when working as a Construction Rep for U.S. Government. Often walked 10-15miles a day as well as climbing stairs and ladders. Not uncommon to get 8 years of wear from a pair of Thorlos. Still buying Thorlos after retiring.

    Very comfortable sock my favorite


    These are so comfortable and for the first time I also get a sock that fits my feet . Sorry the size sold by big box stores that fits size 6 to 12 for sure does not fit feet of either extreme end . I wear size 13 shoes and am using the XL size thorlo's . Fit so nice . Go on and off so easy and feel like butter , silky soft . Thank you so much ! My only gripe is I can only afford these wonderful stockings on sales .

    Awesome for ANY time!


    I LOVE these socks! I initially had wanted some because I plan to be doing some hiking this spring and wanted a pair of really good socks to wear with my hiking boots. But I was very hesitant to pay so much for a pair of socks, even if they were hiking socks. But then again I have never owned or worn a pair of REALLY well-made socks. The minute I put these socks on they fit me perfectly. (which also rarely happens). They are so comfortable that I have been wearing them daily for work. Of course that necessitate me purchasing a few more pair! I have what I call "lumpy" feet. There seem to be lumps and bumps in my feet that always make my feet hurt after being on them for several hours, no matter how good a pair of shoes I have on, and I always put soft insoles into my shoes. Wel,l these socks were so cushy my feet have never felt better. I own four pairs now, and if they hold up as well long term as other reviewers claim they will, this will probably be the only socks I ever buy again! I am so grateful to have discovered these. In my opinion, they are the best socks I have ever had on my feet and I consider them WELL worth the expense. And I'm typically VERY frugal. Well, my husband calls me cheap. But not when it comes to these socks!

    Felt like running on air


    These socks provide so much cushion. I have terrible foot pain when I run, and these socks make running tolerable.

    Changed my dad's life!


    My dad suffers from metatarsalgia and the doctors have pretty much run out of options. On a lark (honestly because they were free!) I got a pair of these socks. They have made such a difference in his daily comfort level - he's actually able to walk without thinking of the pain in every step. Highly recommend these - we ordered more pairs!

    Love it! Pricey, but worth every penny when you feet need good padding.


    I workout everyday and my feet suffer, especially in the ball area. These runner socks provide perfect padding so I can keep going. Those socks are a must for me now. I got three pairs.
