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.

    Very comfortable and cushiony!


    I love the socks. They are warm in the summer, but I went out and purchased 3 pairs of your lighter shorty sock, as I am going to Mx for the winner...and will wear them all!

    Best walking socks ever!


    I love these socks! They have padding in all the right places for my feet that have been through plantar fascitis, bunions, & just achiness all over. I have 2 other types of Thorlo socks too, & doubt I'll ever wear any other brand. I do size my shoes up half a size to allow for the padding, & that's just right. Thanks, Thorlo!

    I have a lot of leg and foot problems but these have been a blessing


    Extra soft feel makes walking better. They feel too thick when you get them but they aren't, they are comfortable in any of my walking shoes.

    Relief from my DVT!


    My entire right leg feels relieved from the pressure of having a DVT (blood clot)! After having the summer off and not being on my feet as much, I was happy to find Thorlos online. I had bought a pair last year in a clearance bin but haven't been able to locate them again in stores. The sock provides comfort and support. I have so much more energy at the end of the day that I have gotten back into walking for exercise. Thanks for making such a wonderful product!
