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.

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.

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.

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.

“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 bought these socks to replace similar Thorlos I have had for 15+ years. The old ones are not worn out--I just wanted new ones. Over-the-calf socks protect the shins while deadlifting and these are the best I know of. Also the most comfortable.

Great for me. I ws told I have very thin fatty pads on the bottoms of my feet. With these socks and proper shoes, I can walk pain free.

I work in a casual lab-type environment, with occasional industrial-plant visits. Thorlo socks are the best socks for wearing for long 10-hour workdays. They provide cushion and wick away moisture when wearing safety shoes or athletic shoes. I have learned that something paying for quality is really an economy in the long run. I heartily recommend these socks!

I work on my feet for 3-4 hours at a time. my feet and lower legs ached so much during work I wasn't sure how much longer I could go on. I tried a pair of the More socks, and now I leave work with no pain and am fine the rest of the day. who would have thought a pair of socks could give so much relief!

What can be said about these socks? They are excellent in every way possible ! My adult sons ask for them and all my friends have thanked me for telling them about them. Everyone I know that has bought a pair and then another. Keep up the good work and I will keep telling others about these socks.

I "accidentally” bought some Thorlo socks at a sporting goods store about three years ago. I am in my late 60s and I’ve had foot problems all my life; had corrective surgery on both feet within the past five years. I have always had trouble finding comfortable soft shoes to wear in the house. I have carpet everywhere because a hard floor has always been uncomfortable for me. Once I found the Thorlo socks I discovered that I had happy feet with or without shoes, as long as I had on my Thorlo socks, even on a hard floor. I thought my feet had improved with the surgeries! I bought a batch of new socks – MY FEET HURT. Investigated the problem and discovered that my new socks were just socks, not Thorlos!! I ordered some new Thorlo socks and did not like them because they were the “thin” variety. I returned those and then after educating myself, I found the perfect sock for me, the “heavy” BMX Basketball mini-crew socks. I’ve developed a hammer-toe during the past year and these socks are

I have been buying socks from your company for years and in fact they are the only socks I'll wear. If you never had a pair ignore the price and buy some. You'll find yourself buying more because they are so comfortable and long lasting. Yes they are expensive but your feet will thank you. So skimp on something else but not the comfort of these socks. They make a long day on your feet bearable and I have to ask what more can you ask for? Jack The Doctor of BBQ Springfield Illinois

After having hiked the Andes with Thorlos socks, I bought these for my husband. He works in cold climates and has very wide feet. He normally wears a size 12, so I took a stab at size 13-15. They're perfect and slide on and off easily. A little snug in his boots but he's going to wear them to better size his new boots to accommodate the socks. His feet hurt less and these socks help keep his feet warm. He likes them so much he's wearing them for every day use as well, they're that comfortable! I'm definitely buying him more.

These socks are simply the best! I am cursed with cold feet and have purchased every sock known to man. These are worth every penny. My feet stay warm and dry. I open my very full sock drawer and I reach for my Thorlos every time. They are comfortable and come out of the washer/dryer beautifully. They do not shrink. Folks, do not hesitate to buy these socks.

For those of us in the hospitality industry; we learn to quit buying low end "affordable" shoes after a while and get quality foot ware to feel better at the end of the day. I can say that stepping up to quality sock ware has made that concept even better. I also occasionally suffer from gout and find these socks even offer some degree of relief for that.
