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.

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.

“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 of the best for Tennis


    Everyone may not be able to afford the best in everything. But, everyone can afford the BEST sock. THIS IS IT!

    Lightweight but durable


    Completed 3 mile moderate hike over large rock mountain trail. Very comfortable during hike and shocked to find dry feet when I removed the socks. Never experienced to this degree. This will be my "go to" sock for the price and quality.

    The Best


    They are the best boot sock available. That is why I am willing to pay $16 a pair. They last me upward of three years with regular wear.

    Thorlos are a Great Value


    I have been wearing the full length Thorlos for years for work. I wanted to try the short socks for summer wear. The Thorlo socks are very comfortable and durable. Some of the full length socks I have been wearing for over 6 years. These socks cost more than the average "tube" sock but they are significantly more comfortable and they last a long time. I'm finally wearing out some socks purchased in 2007, they have some small holes in the toes now. For a good value these socks can't be beat.

    Great for military boots and wild land firefighter boots.


    I bought these socks for my husband and my son. They both expressed that they made a difference in the comfort of their boots. They were well worth the price.

    yosemite dream...


    years ago, i was backpacking and camping in yosemite national park with my daughters and some friends. on one particularly hot afternoon, a mix-up with who was carrying our filter pump required me to hike down from above cathedral lakes to the ranger station near near tuolome store to get water for the part of the group that did not have the pump. as i was nearing the ranger station, i began to imagine how wonderful my feet would feel if i hiked on to the store to purchase a pair of thorlo trail socks i noticed there a few days earlier. visions of socks kept my feet from betraying me. i rewarded them with two new pairs. i have been a thorlo trail hiking sock lover ever since. the latest set i purchased (earlier this summer of 2014) have once again reminded my feet that i love them. thorlo socks are always my gift to my trusty feet.

    I Walk before work, and I go to work early, so most times I'm walking at 4 am. I roll out of bed with sore feet, and want to make every excuse possible not to walk. But then I put on my Thorlis and my feet really feel good! They hug where they need to and cushion where I really need them to and I feel so much better. Before I know it I'm out walking my 3 miles, and my feet feel great! Thank you so much! Patty Andusko

    Best socks ever -- even after 7 foot surgeries!!


    The biggest problem after these surgeries is that I have lost the fat pads on the bottoms of my feet. The cushioning in the lower part of these socks is the best that I know of. Believe me, I have tried many! I can literally walk for miles with these socks!! I also wear the calf length of this brand/style :-)

    Such a good sock I ordered the Experia Merino Silk Socks


    I love both of them! I am a 63 year old woman who Nordic Walks to recover from breast cancer. Both types of sock provided beautiful absorbancy without becoming sweat soaked and both provided excellent frictionless cushioning. I am up to 8.6 miles and I have every confidence these will carry me to my 13.1 mile goal. You will be seeing more orders from me!

    Best socks period.


    Thorlos are the best socks I have ever bought. The cushioning makes me feel like I'm walking in cotton. They also are very durable!
