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.

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.

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.

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.

    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.

    Great socks for mountain's and work

I do about 2 to 3 mile hike in to the mountains and back down again wich I hade no trouble with hot spots on my feet and with great support keeps you from getting your feet tired. I also used these for work with some great results, standing in my feet all day giving you the same benefits and also keep your feet from sweating to much.

    best socks i've ever worn!


    i really like the arch support. never had that in a sock before. padding's great. i thought these were the shorter roll-down socks but the comfort and feel make up for that. i wear these for bicycling and will still get the roll-down socks. again, best pair of socks i've ever worn. thank you, thorlos. i've been buying and wearing thorlos for many years and wear them almost exclusively. i'll agree with another review on here that online ordering is much better than in store. limited quantities and styles... thank you very much. i cannot recommend this product more highly. fantastic!

    The only socks I'll wear


    They cushion and support my feet. They feel great! And some of mine have lasted for more than 15 years. Not quite as comfy or fluffy, but still serviceable after 15 years of hard living. These are the best socks on the market. As long as I can find them, they're the only ones I'll wear.

    Helps my feet feel great after a day of running


    On weekends I spend my days refereeing soccer and am either running or standing all day. On a typical weekend I will referee between 4-8 games and spend several hours on my feet. The extra cushioning helps to reduce heel pain and cramping in the feet. Great product!!

    Best socks EVER!


    Though the initial price per pair may seem high, these socks are absolutely worth it. I had four pairs that lasted for a year! Following the washing/drying instructions helped them survive through high mileage running and multiple races. I now use my "old" running socks as every day socks since purchasing my new pairs. I rarely ever, if ever, have any foot discomfort when running in these socks and I previously suffered from bad plantar fasciitis. BEST SOCKS EVER!!!!! :)

    Great socks for walking the golf course


    I struggled with blisters on my heels, toes, and the balls of my feet when walking during a golf game. These socks totally solved the problem. No more slipping around in my golf shoes and no more socks sliding down into my shoe while walking. They are great for cushioning all the right spots.
