WALKING SOCKS

FITNESS WALKING MADE EASY.

A Great Way to Get & Stay in Shape

There’s no doubt about it: walking is the safest, simplest form of exercise that can help you trim your waistline and improve your health. The problem is, sore, tired, achy feet can keep you on the couch. That’s where Thorlos clinically-tested padded socks (CTPS) for walking can help. They’re specially designed for walking, with padding clinically shown to help protect your feet from blisters, pain and soreness, as well as the pressures and moisture that can cause other serious foot conditions. The result: feet that are protected, profoundly comfortable and ready to go walking tomorrow.  

“I wear orthotics and my feet need to be cushioned. These socks don't bunch up and keep the sock smooth so the bottom of my feet don't get sore.”  Kathy G.

So it becomes easy to take a brisk half-hour walk five days a week, which is all you need to meet US national physical activity guidelines. Do more—more time, more distance, more intensity—and the benefits to your heart, cholesterol levels, blood pressure, weight and mood increase exponentially.

“Love my new magic socks! Like walking on air and they stay put, too. No sliding down into my shoes.”  Gaye P.

Thorlos CTPS—Activity-Specific, Uniquely Designed

While incorporating Thorlos hallmark ball-and-heel padding, Thorlos clinically-tested padded walking socks are lighter in weight to make your walks effortless. These incredibly comfortable socks also have a unique feature:  added spandex in the arch for support and a lace pad on the top of the sock to protect against “lace bite”—the pain and irritation caused by laces cutting into your foot. .Pink heel
We donate $1 per pair to a cause of your choice Women who are into distance walking will want to try our most protective walking sock, the  DWMXW, made with our proprietary THORLON yarn. These socks have a compelling story behind them. Originally, they were designed specifically to meet the needs of women committed to participating in the Breast Cancer 3-Day, a 60-mile walk benefiting Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the National Philanthropic Trust (the event is now known as Susan G. Komen 3-Day). Learn more about our Breast Cancer Donation Program.

Our design philosophy is all about protection from the shearing forces that cause blisters and from the pounding and impact that cause general soreness and foot fatigue, If 3-Day walkers wore Thorlos, we reasoned, they would enjoy their training more and, as a result, they would be more prepared to enjoy the special experience of walking with thousands of new friends. So the THORLO Company not only became an official sponsor of the event, we designed a new padded sock for distance walking and named it HEROs®in honor of the women who have battled and are battling breast cancer and the women who will wear them while they walk for the cause.

We also offer high-protection, moderate-cushion unisex styles made with THORLON: WX, WMX, WMM.

“I just finished walking in my third 3-day, 60-mile walk for breast cancer. This is also my third year wearing Thorlos WMM socks. They are like heaven on my feet! I couldn't have made it without these socks.”  Tonya M.

Thorlos Lite Padded Performance Socks

If you don’t experience pain during or after walking and prefer padded socks with both maximum comfort and an even lighter weight, try our Lite padded socks. Choose from four different styles, all made with THOR•WICK®COOL.

  • Men’s Thorlos Thin Padded Walking (LWXM, LWMXM): Features Lite engineered padding in the ball and heel as well as lace pad to protect against shear and impact forces common in walking.
     
  • Women’s Thorlos Thin Padded Walking (LWXW, LWMXW): Features Lite engineered padding in the ball and heel as well as lace pad with a smaller heel cup and toe box to accommodate the anatomical differences in a women’s foot for an optimum fit.
  • Everyday Walker (EWH): Just like our LWMXW but with pink ball and heel pads to signal your support for the fight against breast cancer.
     
  • Experia®: Features a lighter, more sculpted version of our engineered padding in the ball and heel to protect against shear and impact forces. Experia provides more protection and comfort than regular thin cushion socks. 

Longer Walks, More Enjoyment

The benefits of walking go beyond physical health. Regular walks at a more leisurely pace allow you to decompress and contemplate, especially if you’re walking in nature. Walking is also a terrific social activity—easy to do with family, friends and pets! Thorlos padded walking socks will keep your feet off your mind, allowing you to walk longer while enjoying the environment and the camaraderie.

“These socks are unbelievable. I no longer have friction in areas that used to make me sore or create blisters.”George L.

Employee Favorite

”My feet used to hurt or get hot after a long walk when I wore ordinary socks. Since I’ve been wearing Thorlos clinically-tested walking mini crew socks, my feet no longer hurt! Thorlos provide sufficient padding, comfort and protection, but not too much bulk. They also keep my feet dryer and cool, which I like.” David McBride, Marketing

    No matter what size you get, these slide down your heel. Don't bother.

    Though I have had very good luck with a number of Thorlo socks, and I really appreciate the colors of these "XCCU" socks, they slide down my heels. I've tried multiple pairs in three different sizes, with four different running shoes, and ALL OF THEM slide down my heels! EVERY SINGLE PAIR! I don't know what's wrong with these socks. I don't know if it's an elasticity issue or what, but they just don't work. I wear about a size 10.5 running shoe. I have tried these in the sizes that are marked on the socks as 11, 12, and 13. With most other socks, I've used a slightly small size, so that's why I started with the size 11 ones. Admittedly, Thorlo lists that as a bit small, so I ordered the ones marked size 12, which are supposedly the correct size for my feet. But, no dice. They slid down my heels within minutes. So... I then ordered them in the size that has a 13 stitched into them, above the toes. They're just a bit better, but a bit bulky in my shoes, as they're really otherwise too big for my feet. I just can't win with these. So, now, I have about ten pairs of these and not one of them is really wearable. Maybe your feet/ankles aren't shaped like mine. I weigh 155 lbs am 5', 10" tall and have what I think look like pretty normal men's ankles, and run about 20 miles a week in size 10.5 Mizuno Wave Prophecy or various very squishy Nikes, also at size 10.5. Sadly, these are a complete failure for me. (I'm going to rate Thorlos, in general, higher that I would just for this particular sock, because many of their other socks are quite good. But, this sock would get a zero!)

    I have worn these same socks for thirty years. Thorlo never changes them and there is a reason for that. They are the perfect sock. - good cushioning that is not too thick; cushioning in heel prevents slippage - feet never feel too hot, too cold, or sweaty -they last a really long time; up to ten years Highly Recommend!
