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 THORLON® and a Merino Wool/Silk blend for insulation, and superior resilience, softness, durability, and moisture-wicking for drier, better feeling feet.
  • Cushioned instep and arch for a better fit, more support and less pressure on the feet for a more comfortable day hike.
  • Low profile toe seam won’t rub or irritate the feet.
  • Unique padding specifically engineered for light hiking, clinically shown to reduce blisters, pain, pressures and moisture.
  • Ventilation panel for extra moisture control and breathability.

    Best socks for being on your feet all day long


    I buy these socks for my husband, son and son-in-law. They are on their feet everyday, often outdoors in cold damp weather. Anyway, they are now spoiled and only wear Thorlo socks, which I happily buy for their birthdays and Christmas every year. PS, I wear them, too.

    warm, comfortable


    Very happy that these socks keep my feet warm. The wool content eliminates "stinky sock" problems.

    Big Help for old hiker


    I have experienced chronic foot pain on past hikes. While wearing the WLTH recently on a nine+ mile paved hike, had tired but not sore feet.

    Socks that I like!


    It's a very good padded sock. I use them for work, and wear them along with a liner. A little pricey, but quality. Not too thick so as to cause discomfort. I like them, and wish I had bought more of these instead of the other type!

    The only sock in my drawer


    Thorlo socks are the only socks I buy for working in the yard, exercising, or for dress. They are comfortable and last years even under abusive wear.

    Thorlo PLEASE bring back the WLTH Light Hiking Socks in Color: Charcoal!


    *Sock Size UPDATE: My feet are a U.S. Men’s Size: 10, medium to narrow with and I need good arch support and cushioning for comfort and to take up some volume for a good snug proper fit, I am an ex-Soccer player so I love a glove like fit regarding my footwear. I where Nikes sneakers, Asolo Hiking Boots, SIDI Cycling Shoes & Motorcycle Boots, and Atomic Ski Boots. I LOVE the WLTH-13-785 Light Hiking, Color: Charcoal! The Charcoal color has been discontinued :( why? These are not light weight, they take up volume in my Asolo Hiking Boots and are great for the Fall and Winter seasons while wearing hiking boots, I do wish they were 1.5” taller because they shrink in height a bit, and then I find myself wearing my ski socks because they are taller, the WLTH Light Hiking Socks are mid-calf in length. I where these socks in Men’s Thorlos Sock Size: 13 = USA Shoe Size: 9 to 12.5 and they fit perfect. I have owned and worn Thorlo’s SLW Ski Wool/Silk Socks for years they last and last. I also sold tons of them when I worked at a Ski, Snowboard & Boat Shop, that is the most important piece of gear when going skiing - a great pair of Thorlo’s, again another one of my classic favorites the SLW Ski Wool/Silk Socks have been discontinued :( I am so bummed out that Thorlo just discontinued my other favorite adventure socks :( listed below. Thorlo PLEASE bring them back!!! XSKI Extreme Ski, Color: Charcoal/Black = Skiing, Shoveling Snow & Winter Motorcycling Awesomeness! Discontinued :( XWXU Experia Wool Silk Crew, Color: Charcoal = Hiking, Fall/Winter Trail Running and Casual Awesomeness! Discontinued :( XCXU-12-073 - Experia Crew, Color: Black/White = Spring/Fall Hiking, Spring/Fall/Winter Trail Running and Casual Awesomeness! Discontinued :( MADE In USA make me happy :) but Thorlo you guys keep discontinuing every sock I love, what am I going to wear on my feet???
