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

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.

“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.

Comfortable. Soft. Seamless. My only complaint is that every now and then I have to wear socks made by other companies. I suppose the only thing to do is to completely replace all my old socks.

I love my socks. I tried buying socks from stores but you get what you pay for cheap. I come back time and time again and get my socks from Thorlo. Sometimes when the washer or dryer sends one into that vast "Neverland" of socks I may come back sooner then expected. They are durable. My feet don't hurt so bad when I use the Thorlo socks. I love the thick cushion for my 12 on my feet days.

I love these socks. They're nice and thick, are very comfortable, and last a long time.

I have been using thorlo basketball, skiing and hiking socks for over 20 years. They are the only type of sock that is both super tough, high build and big enough for me. Even though my feet are only size 12 I find that most socks tend to fall down and get littler over time. I buy the size 13 socks from Thorlo and they pull up further and also are more comfortable. Give thorlo a chance, they cost a little more than some other brands, but you get what you pay for and then some.

With over 55 years of experience pulling socks over my feet I can honestly say that I have never put on a more comfortable pair. And the first time I stood up and walked around up after pulling them on was like having little pillows everywhere I wanted them. I have used them in my hiking boots as well as my running shoes and although they make both a bit tighter than I am used to they are by no means uncomfortable. As recommended, if you buy your shoes using these socks when trying them on you will be more than a litttle pleased at the comfort that results. I probably don't need to say it after what I just wrote, but I highly recommend these socks to anyone whether you have foot issues or not. They are wonderful.

I'm a basketball referee that has developed foot problems over my 30 year career. These socks have proven their worth. They really help make my feet as comfortable as possible. Wash and use fabric softener as directed.

Great socks to cushion and protect feet when playing tennis or working out/walking. I've owned many pairs of Thorlo cushion socks. They wear great and protect your feet better than other socks.

High quality and very comfortable.

I play in competitive tennis leagues, which is challenging for my narrow feet. A while back I broke a toe nail and saw a podiatrist. He recommended Thorlos. My toe healed up quickly and I never have a hint of discomfort with Thorlos. --Hugh

My mother gave me socks for Christmas some years ago. I thought (sarcastically) Wow, socks for Christmas. But they were the best gift! After wearing them my feet felt great and the rest of my body ached less. I havnt always been able to keep Thorlo socks on hand but when I can I stock up. I have recommended them to numerous co-workers that complained of foot or body aches.
