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.

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 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.

    Best socks for everything.


    These socks feel good on my feet when I put them on. The very first pair I had, I wore for 2 days straight. I wouldn't take them off. The way they hug my feet in all the right places feels so good even when you are just sitting and doing nothing. I have trouble walking very far because of my back, and usually when i do, my feet ache afterwards. Since I have been wearing these socks, my feet have not been aching after walking. I love them and would recommend them to anyone.

    Protected feet during RASC course


    These socks are simply amazing and I'm a huge fan. I used a combination of old and new pairs of these socks during a recent Air Force Pre-ranger course and my feet held up great! No blisters, just usual foot fatigue. Also, it is worthy to note that I could only change socks about 7 times during the 15 day course and I did not have any foot powder to use with them and they still protected my feet! You won't find anything better.

    Great socks! Very different


    I really liked these socks from the moment I opened them up... I got a free pair and wasn't sure what to expect, but I primarily noticed how different they were when compared to normal socks... The texture of the padding was kind of strange, but it felt great on my toes, which are usually blistered from my running... I liked the look of the mini crews as well! Overall, i definitely plan on ordering more! These were total winners in my book!

    Perfect cushioning for plantar fasciitis


    These sox brought considerable relief for my multiple foot and heel problems. I am even wearing them inside my ortho boot and for physical therapy. If you have lost your foot padding, you need to try these sox. They wash and dry nicely.

    Golf Socks


    I enjoy all my Thorlo sock products. I have several pair and just now are trying the golf socks. Can't say as they help my score... however they surely are comfortable and keep my feet dry during a hot humid day on the Florida courses. Highly recommend this product to fellow golfers.

    Exactly the right blend of materials in the right position.


    Thorlo has, presumably through a lot of trial and error, achieved just the right blend of materials placed in the optimal positions. The sock is slick enough to not abrade the shoe's delicate lining, but gripy enough to not let the foot slide around. Cushy enough in the impact points to soften the blows of exercise, but thin enough elsewhere to allow air flow and keep the foot cool, but not too cool. It's not so thick that I need to upsize my shoe, but thick enough that I can lace thightly and get a snug fit without lace bite. It's warm enough around my ankes to keep my joints moving comfortably without overheating. The material and construction lasts long enough to justify spending a little extra for it so when these went on sale there was no reason not to snatch them up. If you have mid to high arches and therefore feet that don't flex well and you need shock absorbtion, or if your joints are degraded due to age, wear and tear or surgery, these are the socks for you. The only feature that I think could be added to improve this product is some kind of anti-microbial element for people who can't always get their laundry done in a timely manner, but the lack of such a feature is not going to prevent me from buying more. I know ice hockey isn't a big sport in the home town of this company, but I hope they will apply their expertise and commitment to developing the perfect, long lasting, high quality sock for wearing while playing ice hockey. That's one of the few products not in their collection at the moment.
