The Design of Thorlos Padded Running Socks

Insights into the design, development and testing of Thorlos activity-specific, clinically-tested padded running socks from David Varsik, THORLO's senior design engineer.

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.

Benefits

  • Constructed with THOR•LON® fibers for superior softness, resilience, durability, and moisture-wicking for drier, better feeling feet.
  • Cushioning over the toes to help protect against runner’s toe.
  • Flat knit instep and cushioning in arch for better fit, more support and less pressure on the feet for a more comfortable run.
  • Low profile toe seam won’t rub or irritate the feet.
  • Unique padding specifically engineered for running, clinically shown to reduce blisters, pain, pressures and moisture for maximum protection.

    Awesome product

    By

    Very comfortable and like the extra padding. On another subject. Company needs to have a set of numbers or a number for each sock that corresponds on the website with what is on the package. Hope I said that correctly. Contact me if you need more explanation. I bought some socks at SAS but the information/number on the package for the socks cannot be found on your website.

    Great socks

    By

    I love these socks! I have shorter lengths that I cannot get to wear out. And, besides walking and running I wore them for 12hr work shifts in hospital nursing. I will get more!!!

    Craig's favorites.

    By

    What can I say? Thorlos are the only athletic sock Craig wears. He's been wearing them since discovering them light years ago. Usually I buy a dozen pair at a time. That's so they all wear out at the same time and can be replaced at the same time. He's glad they are still being made.

    What happen Thorlo??

    By

    I've bought these socks for at least the past 10-15 years. No manufacturer could touch the comfort and support.....until now..... I purchased several more pairs about 3-4 weeks ago. When putting on the newly purchased running socks for the first time, my first thought was.....what the heck happened? The softness and cushioned support for my heel and balls of my feet were greatly diminished. I was very disappointed, to say the least. It seems Thorlo has obviously gone the way of most big companies, it's all about reducing the quality of their product in search of the "holy grail"....more profit, more money in their pockets! Thorlo, you're a better company than this. Give us back the quality you used to provide. I will pay a little more.....but I don't like paying the same price for this reduced quality. I used to brag about Thorlo and its product, but I can't "highly" recommend this sock any longer. I never thought I would go in search of a sock to replace my Thorlo's....but sadly, I am. Hopefully, this feedback will reach the right people in the company and they will return to the exceptional quality past Thorlo products provided.

    Great socks for walking and running

    Excellent socks--wear like iron but feel like silk. They are not suitable for hiking on rough terrain.

    Ideal for Flat Feet and the Active User

    By

    For anyone with fallen arches (flat feet) these socks and many Thorlo products are simply the answer to your comfort prayers. I have had sore feet for years until I started wearing these socks. Now, I have had no foot pain in years. Thanks, Thorlo, and the best part of it is that these are made in the USA, last forever, and maximize value. So happy to buy American and feel great doing it.

    No more blisters!

    By

    I love these socks for the cushion and the fact that my feet remain blister free, whether I am running a short distance or a marathon.
