    Comfort and Quality


    Thorlo socks have always impressed me with their feel and quality. I have owned several pairs of mid-weight hiking socks and they last forever. They are extremely comfortable, too. The low-cut Thorlo socks are rivaling their bigger siblings.

    Just starting to use


    I haven't had a chance to wear them much yet. I at the low end of the published shoe size for large (9) but they are.slightly too big. Medium might be better.

    Small and thin


    I have a 14 size foot. The 16 size sock was too small to wear and be comfortable they smashed my toes back under when the heal fit. Sorry I did try. Still looking for the real wearable sock.

    Great for Landscaping


    They feel great!! I do landscaping in Florida. Heat plus strenuous movement causes blisters and pain. With these socks there was less moisture and no blisters! What a relief!!

    Best anklet sock on the market.


    I have been wearing Thorlo socks for the past 26 years. For the first 23 years it was the boot socks; I ditched the GI socks for Thorlos while working for Uncle Sam. The quality is outstanding. You can buy cheaper socks, but you can't buy better ones.

    Great all a round sock for summer use


    Liked the feel and how they fit. Have wide foot so they were easy to put on. Liked the quarter crew height.
