Value comes in many forms. But we are keenly aware that it boils down to you get what you pay for when you pay $14.95 for a pair of Thorlos, we know you have to get a lot in order for you to consider it a bargain. And that’s the goal we set for ourselves giving you so much more than you expect in terms of protection, comfort and foot health.

They have highlighted six different types of value you can count on from your Thorlos, and that’s why they consider Thorlos such a bargain. Here is what you can hold us to, and some recent unsolicited testimonials that capture what current wearers have shared regarding their personal experiences

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

"Cheap socks were giving my feet blisters if I walked even a mile. Thorlos socks have never given me a blister. Count me very satisfied. These are expensive socks, and worth every penny.”  Michael C.

“I no longer have plantar fasciitis in using these Thor-Lo socks, nor pain in my calves. Amazing cushion while I run both long distance and conducting my interval trainings. Highly recommended!”  Thomas B.

“Thorlos are the best socks on the market. Quality is top notch, they last a long time, the cushion is great and they are MADE IN THE USA! 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.

“You cannot beat the performance and comfort of these socks. Buying them online is fast and easy. You won't be sorry you tried these socks if you like thick, comfortable, long lasting socks! And best of all they are made in the USA.”  Gary B

“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.

    Great running socks


    Don`t run anymore, but they provide comfort and support that I need. They are long-lasting quality socks at a reasonable price.

    Style: LRXM

    Some things don't need to change


    It's been over 14 years and tens of thousands of miles running in the LRXM that make it easy for me to never need to research another sock. I've tried others, but there is no comparison for my feet. In fact, I have examples of single pairs of LRXMs with over 3 and 4 thousand miles on them, and they still aren't worth throwing away. I keep every pair and wear them for work and play. I still get a large order every few years and date them with a laundry marker. The old socks still function as well as the new. I prefer the longer version because it allows me to fold it down twice and pull the sock up a little out from my shoe, and the fold will hold it there. Crew socks sink a bit into my shoe over time, leading to pain in the back of my ankle. I also use the longer portion of the top of the sock to fold down while stuffing the bottom of loose pants legs into them so the pants won't fall between my shoe and ankle causing discomfort. Every step for 14 years has been in LRXM

    Best socks ever


    The only sock my husband will wear with his work boots. They are the only sock that will stay up all day. Another plus is that they last for years. You won't be disappointed.

    Best ever!


    Thorlo socks are fantastic! I work 10-12 hours on my feet and would recommend Thorlo socks over any other brand. The extra padding has a wonderful cushioning effect against long hours of walking/standing.

    Best socks for weightlifting.


    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.

    Pain Free Walking


    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.
