Value comes in many forms.

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
Brand Promise Guarantee – Thorlos: Your feet will feel better or your money back®. Customers reinforce our promise in their feedback:
“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.

What a treat for my feet! As a senior runner (i.e., over 65), I only do 3-5 miles a day. And from now on, each of those miles will be done wearing Thorlos. They're comfy, well-cushioned, and my feet can breathe. Well worth the price.

These socks exercise your feet while you wear them. Honest it is like your feet have extra energy and always stay at the right temperature. They wear for years. Our family has worn them for years and will continue to do so, Thank you Thorlo!

These socks are that rare thing today--a product made with no corners cut and all the best design and craftsmanship a manufacturer can muster. They stay up, yet are not tight. They are soft and comfortable, yet are not mushy. The structure, padding, and weave are truly exemplary. I am done searching for socks--I've found these. If I could make one tiny change, it would be to make them a half inch taller, just for a little more warmth.

I never knew socks could make a difference, but these do... They feel good as soon as you put them on. To tell the truth, I've always bought cheap socks, but not anymore. I will be buying these for most of my long walking days. Thanks!

I am a store manager for a major sporting goods company. I have been an avid seller and wearer of thorlos for about four years now. And I have brought them into my family. I use them for everyone in my family from my diabetic mom, my sister with vericose veins, and even my dad wears a leg brace. The snowboard socks work great to reduce the chaffing on his leg. This is such a great brand and they make great product. Also made in USA. Thanks for the amazing merchandise.

I am a long distance runner and one of my biggest complaints has been my sore feet after I run. My husband told me that I should try Thorlo socks because he had heard positive things about them. I ordered my free pair and since then have replaced all of my running socks with Thorlos. I love them! My feet finally don't hurt! I have been running for years, along with several years working with the footwear design team at a popular sportswear company and I am impressed with the quality of these socks! Thank you Thorlos for improving my run!

I like my socks to fit a little snug. These socks offer padding and are comfortable to wear. I have used other thorlo products before, this is an excellent brand and offer many different options for the athlete. Even those these aren't my favorite, I do prefer this brand of running sock

Excellent sock - need more colors - this and ECCXM are your best socks in my opinion because they don't shrink too much and aren't too tight around the calf and lower leg, but still stay up - Need more colors in both of these styles though
