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.

Evidenced-based Benefits – Thorlos have been clinically shown to reduce blisters, reduce foot pain, reduce pressures and wick moisture

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.

Love these socks and they make my feet happy!

love to walk the dogs in the mornings, but was in need of new socks. Checked the internet and came across your web site. I ordered a pair to see if they made any difference to my feet. After wearing your socks went online and ordered another dozen. My feet feel better, and of course the dogs love it when mom is able to take them on longer walks. Will be back to order more socks.

I liked the socks, there the best I have ever worn!

For some time now i've had to wear moleskin with my thick hiking socks (smartwool) as well as a silk liner sock just to keep blisters off me on long hikes. I've since grabbed some Thorlos and combined them with just liner socks and have been able to get away blister free on 12+ mile hikes so far. I'm very happy to be able to pop off my boots with ease and cool my feet in a stream and dry socks off or put new ones on. In the past I just didn't have that option without retaping and moleskinning my feet.

These were requested for a birthday gift, My son raved and raved about them, and I laughed until they came. I can see why he loves them. He is on his feet all day, up and down stairs too. Well worth the investment. He even turns them inside out everyother wash! I'm still laughing.

I bought a couple of pair at the Houston Livestock Show this year. Since then, I have been completely satisfied with their comfort, durability and performance. I have bought several more pair. They standup to my work-style as a rancher, construction manager. Jobs where I wear boots for a living.

I have two pair of Thorlo walking crew socks and I try to make them the only socks I wear until washday comes again. I would rather wear my Thorlo socks, as dirty as they are, than wear another brand of socks that are brand new spanking clean. They are so soft and cushiony. I have blisters, corns, and bunions on my wide feet. I have to buy expensive shoes and also podiatrist prescribed insoles for each pair of shoes I own. Needless to say, the socks also need to be of good quality and finding good quality socks is difficult. A pair of Thorlo socks was recommended by an exclusive locally-owned sporting goods store and I reluctantly purchased them expecting nothing special. After one wearing, I was 100% satisfied. I could immediately feel the difference as soon as I placed my Thorlo-wrapped feet into my shoes. I was still not completely convinced but at the end of the day I had no adverse blisters or discomfort of any kind; just comfort from pampered feet. I recommend these socks to anyone who prefers feet that are made for walking, standing, and even running without resulting in discomfort at the end of the day. Once you wear them, you will not want to wear any other sock but Thorlo.

Thorlos are the only socks I wear with walking shoes. They protect my feet, keep them cool in the summer and warm in the winter. They are more expensive than other running socks but nothing else comes close to providing comfort. I have started turning them inside out for washing and drying them on a rack rather than in the dryer. I hope that this will prolong their life.

Thorlos socks are my all time favorites! They cushion your feet and heels for total protection and comfort. They wear like iron and last forever! I am thrilled that they are made in the USA!

These are the best socks I've ever owned. They are comfortable, and they protected my feet from getting blisters. Tried them out walking all day at Disney World. They were so great that I washed them overnight at the hotel to wear them again the next day! I definitely recommend them. I've bought three more pairs since. Though a bit pricey, your poor hard-working feet deserve to be protected and pampered!
