    Good/Comfortable Socks


    Have purchased Thorlos for years and love them; wouldn't wear anything else. The HPXW's are very comfortable. The only reason I didn't rate them a five is because they do not have top-of-the-foot padding found in the running socks.

    Padding eases the bottom of my feet.


    Less pain I would buy more if they came in another color.

    Not a fan


    I have only worn these socks once since they arrived. Being diabetic I was looking forward to extra padding. Instead what I got was a blister on my big toe! I will go back to my other socks. I am not a fan of blisters.

    bought for playing tennis


    They changed the way they make the sock. The old ones had more padding. The new ones that, I just ordered, seem cheap and they shrank as soon as I washed them. I have always bought Thorlo socks but now I am going to change brands. I need the extra padding to help absorb the shock from playing on hard court.

    Relief for tender feet.


    My foot pain has gone down considerably. My feet are tender and need some cushion to help relieve pain. These socks have been amazing and wonderful and I will order more.

    I bought Thorlo walking socks before and loved them. I have heel pain so I wanted padding in my sock. According to write ups the diabetic socks would have the best padding and be the best for foot pain. They were less padded than the walking socks I bought many years ago and they just don't lol like the will hold up as long. Not worth the high price.

    Most comfortable sock I own.


    These socks are comfortable and soft. I wear them everyday. They are gentle and don't chafe on my toes where I have neuropathy.

    Sorry I bought them


    Uncomfortable. The pressure pads on the bottom shift because the sock does not hold shape.

    Relieved my heel pain.


    I had started have a lot of heel and arch pain in my feet. My husband has sworn by Thorlo socks for years and refuses to wear anything else so I thought I would give them a try. It is amazing that almost all of the pain has gone away.
