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.

I have been using the Thorlos socks for years the quality and the comfort are formidable.

I bought these socks for the summer and just as all of my previous styles have been they are the best I every bought for walking. Heck I even wear them to work with my Sperry docksiders, my wife says they make me look dorky but I don't care. My feet love me for usign Thorlos and I know some will look at the price and decide to not buy a pair but it would be the worst thing you could do for your poor aching feet. I have 4 pairs of this style and several other styles that I have purcahsed so yes you could call me an "ADICT" but I don't regret my love of socks....that does sound kind of like a fetish I guess....

Wear these socks with work boots everyday. Great comfort. They never really wear out but after approx 2 years cushioning isn't as good. Buy them 14 pairs at a time. Just replaced pairs bought over 2 years ago and non had wear holes in them. Also used for backpacking. Haven't found any better. Son wearing them in military doesn't wear anything else. thanks for the great product. BZ

Thought I'd just waste 15 bucks you know, if they work, great if not, whatever. My decision was one of the better ones I've made. These socks are actually phenomenal. My feet don't hurt and I feel happier. Funny how a small thing like a sock, a SOCK, can make you a happier person. Good work thorlos.

Since you dropped the secific sock for diabetics these have done well - better than those from shoe stores a d Walmart which claim the same function. A little bit pricey but worth it.
06/13/14 | By Kathy R.
Without a doubt - these socks are the best. It doesn't matter what style socks you're purchasing, they are worth the money. I bought socks for my hubby 15 years ago and they are still holding up well. I don't spend my money on anything else. My feet say thank you.

I am a schoolteacher by day and a Zumba instructor several evenings a week. My feel take a beating! Doing Zumba in these socks is a dream! I cannot pound on my feet in any other socks. I know people think they're pricey, but, Oh! you cannot believe the difference they make. It's like standing on a cloud. I have started wearing them every day, not just for Zumba, and I feel worlds better. I highly recommend this product!

I just completed my fortieth marathon and have been wearing Thorlos for my past seventeen. My only regret is having not discovered them sooner. I've never had a blister because of these. They're light, breathable, moisture wicking, and have just the right cushioning.

I've been running with Thorlos socks for close to 20 years. I find them as important to have as a good running sneaker for my running success. They cost a little more but last longer than other sock brands. It balances out.

Best socks - I love the Thorlo Brand- They last for a very long time, so it's worth paying a little more.
