The Design of Thorlos Padded Walking Socks

THORLO's senior design engineer describes the development and benefits of Thorlos clinically-tested padded walking socks.

What Independent Clinical Studies Say About Thorlos

Thorlos padding has been the subject of eight independent clinical research studies that were published in peer-reviewed medical journals. The results showed the proprietary padding reduces foot pain, blisters and other foot conditions, pressures on the foot and moisture.


  • Constructed with THOR•LON® fibers for superior softness, resilience, durability and moisture-wicking for drier, better feeling feet.
  • Cushioned instep and spandex in the arch for a better fit, more support and less pressure on the foot for a more comfortable long distance walk.
  • Engineered for women’s feet with extra stretch yarn in the ankle, a smaller heel pocket and a comfort toe box for a better fit.
  • Low profile toe seam won’t rub or irritate feet.
  • Unique padding specifically engineered for distance walking, clinically shown to reduce blisters, pain, pressures and moisture.
  • Ventilation panel for extra moisture control and breathability.

    My feet are so happy and protected


    I have sensitive feet in general and more so since chemotherapy. The socks really help with peripheral neuropathy and I can easily walk four or more miles.

    Walking Socks


    These are nice socks but uncomfortably tight in the toe area.

    The only socks in my drawer


    Since the first day I wore these, I knew there was no other sock for me. NO MORE BLISTERS!!! The padding is awesome, yet not bulky or sweaty. My feet are in love with these socks, and now can walk/run my daily 5 miles. Thanks Thorlo

    Love the socks and...


    I am over 70 and walk 10,000 steps daily. I have arthritis in one foot and tendonitis in the other. These socks don't cure either but they make walking more comfortable. As a breast cancer survivor, I appreciate the $1 pair donation to fight breast cancer too.

    Getting ready to buy 3 more pair!


    My sister bought me 3 pair for Christmas, knowing I walk 3 miles a day but have major problems with plantar faciitis. She wears them inside her boots while hiking. Now I NEVER walk without these socks! They are thick and cushiony and padded in the right places. I have told everyone about these wonderful socks. Well worth the price.

    I Love my Thorlo socks. I had bought 5 pairs two years ago and just reordered a.month ago. They held up that well! I work in a Restaurant and I literally must run 20 miles in them everyday.

    Protecting my feet


    I have foot aches and pains of all sources, from fascia to toenails. When I go to the fitness center, I need my feet to be comfortable of I cannot complete my physical therapy. The DWMXW take good care of me.

    Best Socks for working on your feet


    I have sensitive and painful feet. With the DWMXW on, my feet feel cushioned and don't hurt. Sometimes my feet feel hot, and the DWMXW wicks moisture away to keep my feet dry.
