Functional Effectiveness – Thorlos are designed to provide the best price/value proposition

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.

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.

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 value for the money. I have been wearing thor los since 1980's. From tennis to walking and running, they are phenomenal

I have a lot of damage to my thighs; calves ; and feet from shrapnel. For 30+ yrs I have had issues with shoes / sneakers etc. Your socks have revolutionized my feet !! some times I actually wear them over an exhausting sock. You wouldn't believe how great my feet feel. I wear the short white socks with sneakers here in Florida; and the high black dress socks with my shoes. I am really grateful for your quality socks. They really have changed my lifestyle… I am now even dancing with my wife ! You should have a notation to military people with damaged feet… they WILL provide major comfort. Dennis / Florida USMC (ret.)

I really like these socks. They have a good amount of padding in the toe and the heel and are really comfortable. I also did not get any blisters. I recommend these socks for anyone dealing with plantar faciitis issues.

These socks have greatly helped the daily pain I used to experience from being on my feet all day, they occasionally still hurt, but nothing like they used to. Thanks a bunch!

Listen - these are far and away, the best comfort you can get for your feet. If you have issues with your feet - and even of you do not - You will be glad you bought these socks. Non bulk - yet superior comfort. I do not write recommendations as a general rule - but these are simply astonishing.

I've been wearing Thorlos for over 20 year now. The light hikers are my daily go to sock. They are comfortable over a large range of weather conditions. For me that's from about 20 - 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

My feet look forward to jumping into their Thorlos every morning. I am on my feet all day long. Thorlo socks stay in place and keep your feet dry and comfortable all day long. They are warm in winter and cool in the summer. My family and I have been happy Thorlo customers for many, many years and would recommend this brand to anyone who looks for value , reliability and comfort in socks.

I started running again recently and these socks have been the best find I have made! They have the perfect amount of padding to cradle the ball of the foot and heel against impact, but are lightweight enough to keep from getting too warm.

Worth every penny

I have hiked hard in every sock imaginable for 40 years, from cotton athletic socks to polypropelene liner socks to 100% wool socks, with the odd dress sock in the mix. My sock needs to perform in extreme heat to temps in the teens, usually under a moderate backpack load. Over the years, may favorite socks have been blends of synthetic fabric, possibly with some wool and usually with some stretching fabric. I don't like socks that are too tight and can't stand a wandering toe or heel. Of course, when I saw the recent Thorlo special offer on these socks, I jumped on it. I have done some tough hikes in this sock since it arrived. How does it rate? I have never walked in a better sock. The weight is perfect, as is the fabric blend and design. The height is perfect. High temperature performance is perfect. This sock gets 5 out of 5. Thanks for a great product!
