- Pressure – Reduces plantar pressure with its overall cushioning lowers dynamic impact with its unique Impact Zone® at the heels
- Shear – Prevents destructive shear forces with the Shear Zone™ padding at the balls of the feet
- Temperature – Maintains a more balanced temperature inside the socks with its patented fibers
- Moisture – Keeps feet drier than ordinary socks with the proper fiber combination for optimized wicking
- Circulation – Increases blood circulation in feet with its adaptable snug fit design and temperature control (snow, hunting)

There are a lot of sports socks available in the market, so why choose Thorlos?
Thorlos use different fibers with different characteristics:
- Moisture Management
- Temperature Control
- Resiliency/Protection and
- Microbial control
Thorlos provides the best proportion of fibers to be used for each individual style of socks catering to different needs.
Fabrics that work well on our bodies work poorly for socks because socks are contained in shoes which is a man-made environment. Natural fibers and simple design will not do well to provide comfort and protection inside the ‘harmful’ environment inside the shoes.
Thorlos has spent more than 20 years and millions of dollars conducting scientific research and has participated in over 12 scientific studies to prove that Thorlos’ unique anatomical design can create the ultimate comfort system. The results of these studies enabled Thorlos to produce sport-specific sock products, each specially engineered to protect the feet according to the demands of each activity.
Widest choice range
To date, Thorlos has over 54 designs with 2 sub-brands (Experia and 84 Runner) using Thorlo pads techonology with over 98 different styles.
Each pair of Thorlo socks is carefully designed and made with the utmost care of consumers in mind. With the vision of ‘Brand Stewardship’, Thorlos perspective is that the company is bonded to its loyal customers hence the 30-day risk free trial (in the US) to guarantee consumer satisfaction no other brands offer.
The company ensures that each pair of socks with the Thorlo mark is and will always be of the same quality. Proudly made in the USA, each pair rolls out from the Thorlo factory in North Carolina (USA) and nowhere else to ensure product quality.
The American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) has granted its Seal of Approval to Thorlos, the first socks brand ever to earn that honor. Thorlos has been worn in the New York and Boston Marathons, two of the most prestigious running events in the world and Runner’s World Best Gear recipient.
Thorlos has been recommended by doctors and sports therapists for its protection and performance, especially to elite athletes, those whose activities require prolonged standing, walking and running and those over the age of 50 due to reduction of natural foot padding.
Experience as best Endorsement
It has been the nature of the brand to treat the experiences and testimonies of users as the best endorsement of the product.
A famous example was legendary tennis champion Martina Navratilova who has never worn anything except Thorlos since she tried on a pair after being a US citizen late in 1981. She even thanked Thorlos in her book and said that the socks had helped her in her tournaments. She holds the world record for most number of tennis titles at 177.
Q: Why are Thorlos socks priced higher than ordinary socks?
A: Thorlos is a great investment. For over 50 years Thorlos has been investing on constant research and development to provide the best foot protection in the market. It is good to note that Thorlos is not just a product but a solution/prevention to foot problems. Thorlos provides a high quality, low-cost solution to an old recurring problem to populations worldwide – foot pain. When a consumer continues to pay a premium price, this demonstrates that consumers know Thorlos socks are bargains and the prices are deserved compared to the money to be spent on recovery and downtime due to injuries caused by poor foot health not to mention regular purchases of easily worn-out socks.
Q: How are Specific Thorlos different from “ordinary socks?“
A: Specific Thorlos are scientifically designed to protect your feet. “ordinary socks” are designed to fit into a price range and are only treated as fashion/brand accessories. Thorlos has spent millions of dollars to study the destructive forces between your foot – your Thorlos and your shoes. Thorlos has developed special patented yarns and technologies unique to the brand and no other socks brand in the market has the same technology and loyalty from consumers.
Q: What about shoes? Don’t they protect people’s feet?
A: Yes, however, shoes protect your feet only from the ground or surface, but they cannot adapt to the uniqueness of people’s feet because no two feet are exactly alike the same way that you need different socks for different shoes. You must remember that you need protection from the shoe itself and address other factors like moisture, pressure, shear, circulation, temperature and posture to which your feet are exposed. Specific Thorlos socks are scientifically designed to protect your feet from these destructive forces while the common socks are just ‘covering your feet’
Q: What do you mean by Preventive Foot Health?
A: People spend a lot of time and money to keep their skin healthy, their hair shiny, their teeth cavity-free and they take vitamins to be healthy, but the feet are always neglected. People cram their feet into shoes with ‘ordinary socks’ and continue to complain about foot pain. Thorlos has kept the guaranteed promise and consumers’ feet will feel better. Thorlos was the first hosiery product awarded the Seal of Acceptance by the American Podiatric Medical Association. The brand’s commitment is to help the public become more aware that foot pain is preventable at a relatively low cost.
Q: How long does a pair of Thorlos lasts?
A: Each pair of Thorlos socks uses the highest quality material and the production has been supervised meticulously. Not all brands are courageous enough to offer a RISK FREE 30-DAY TRIAL (in the US) but you can see this tag in the packaging of Thorlos socks. Pairs last at least 10 years and some even go as high as 20 years (and these years are counted as worn years, not including shelf years!).
