Men's Dress Socks

Dress Shoes Designed for Fashion, Not Comfort Equal Best Dress Socks

Most tight-fitting dress shoes will torture your feet, especially if you are unlucky enough to be a “pavement pounder” or spend hours making presentations on concrete business convention floors. Thorlos promises to make your feet more comfortable in any dress shoes…that's our brand promise guarantee.

“These are the best dress socks I've owned in 60 years of wearing suits.”  S. Li

Unfortunately, most dress shoes are designed to look good, but not necessarily to be comfortable. Traditional designs use leather uppers, leather outer soles and a minimal amount of padding in the shoe. And if you need to spend lots of time on your feet in dress shoes, it’s a good bet that your feet will hurt because most dress shoes are not designed for extended periods of standing or for walking long distances. Thorlos engineered padded socks can help.

 “Out of all the expensive ... socks I've purchased for my husband, these Thorlos are his absolute favorite!”  K. Randall

Thorlos Engineered Padded Socks Make Dress Shoes Comfortable

Thorlos incorporates its foot protection technology into its thin padded socks, designed for feet that don’t hurt during the day (If your feet do hurt, we recommend our MORE Casual Comfort). Thorlos have Lite padding in the ball and heel to protect the foot in hard-soled and less flexible shoes. This protection will make a world of difference in the way your feet feel, but won’t change your shoe size. A little bit of padding goes a long way in a pair of dress shoes.

“This sock is perfect for wearing in dress shoes- the padding at the ball of the foot is really a plus for "older feet". The quality and fit is good and we have yet to see a pair wear out.”   J. Mares

Best Mens Dress Socks Assured with Proprietary Yarns

The Lite padding in the ball and heel will reduce the shearing and impact forces that cause foot pain and aches (foot fatigue) as well as blisters. The arch is designed with a special flat knit for a better fit and added comfort. THORLON yarn wicks moisture away to further assure a healthy environment for your feet.

“The cushion helps his feet stay comfortable and the socks don't slide down-don't bind either and are American made! We buy them 8 pairs at a time!”  G. Kilgore

“I love these black dress socks because of the longer length and the extra cushion the socks have.”  J. Watson

With Thorlos padded socks, there is no need to resign yourself to the idea that dress shoes are  not comfortable. With Thorlos, your feet can look good and feel good at the same time. What Pantherella* socks are to style, Thorlos is to comfort. So if comfort is what you seek, look no further than Thorlos padded socks.

Thorlos Over-the-Calf Dress Socks Stay Up 

Thorlos padded socks come in two lengths: DLT over-the-calf (also called knee-high) and DLTX crew length. Both are designed to stay up all day long because nothing is more aggravating than socks that slip down.

“I really like the support of over-the-calf foot wear. These socks are also beautifully woven.”  W. Lally

“The socks feel great and I'm glad I bought them. I must admit, I was apprehensive at first due to price so I first bought a trial pair and then came back for more :). They are my favorite dress socks. Also, they stay up better than average socks but not the best I've seen.”  J. Davila

If your feet hurt during or after wearing dress shoes, we strongly recommend our More Casual Comfort socks that feature our clinically-tested padding.

    I was concerned that I would get blisters with the thinner dress socks, but they are as comfortable as the athletic socks.

    Mediocre replacement for a higher-quality dress sock

    01/29/17 | By

    These are what Thorlo sells as its men's over-the-calf dress sock. I've worn worse. But this replaced in the Thorlo line-up an incredible, awesome men's over-the-calf dress sock that actually went over the calf and stayed there even after two years of weekly wearing. These don't go "over" the calf, but merely to the top of the calf. And they will not stay up the whole day. These are not usual Thorlo quality.

    Comfy and warm

    I love Thorlos Experia crew socks for running short distance races, so when I saw they have Experia type padding on dressy socks, I was curious. These socks are great. Currently (wintertime) I’m layering them under my dress boots – short and long – to lend more comfort to my boots and keep my feet nice and warm. They’ve even made a pair of uncomfortable (yet super cute!) high heeled boots a lot more comfortable, so I’m able to wear them a lot more without getting blisters afterwards. The pink color is fabulous, and after getting my first pair and loving the color I’ve now purchased another pink pair as well as the tan shade and black. The tan shade perfectly matches a pair of short boots with low sides so they blend in well to keep my feet warmer, which had made these summery boots into something I can now wear in the wintertime. YAY. After loving my first pair of XDXW so much, I bought some of the longer XDOW’s to wear under dress pants. If Thorlos offered these in more colors – like a Purple or Light Blue – I’d buy them too! (hint, hint)

    Good to have these socks in a dress look

    I love the new socks they are perfect for my walking shoes as the thicker socks make for too tight a fit and I love them enough I will wear them when I get my next pair of shoes so that they fit the great socks.

    I absolutely love the extra padding underfoot. It's especially nice for the office, where the floor tends to be cold. Thank you!

    A bit thinner than I expected

    I'm hoping my feet will feel as good as when I wear thicker Thorlo socks.
