Women's Experia Socks

Experia Lite Padded Socks—Stay Active and Comfortable

A high-performance padded sock that is designed for people whose feet don’t hurt during or after activity and who love to stay on the move, whether it’s running, biking, light hiking, fitness training, distance walking, recreational golf—just about any sport you can think of that puts low-to-moderate stress on your feet.

“These socks have padding in all the right places. However they don't add bulk to the entire foot to make your shoes tight. Love them!” Monique F.

The special frame of the sock stays with you as you push yourself and push the competition, keeping your feet comfortable, cool, and protected as you jog to the gym, fitness walk, run on the treadmill, weight train, cross train or interval train.

“Wore these socks for my first marathon and loved them!” Maria L.


Experia Socks: Lite Padding with Aerodynamic Fit

We use a thinner sculpted version of our engineered padding in the ball and heel to protect against shear and impact forces, providing more protection and comfort than regular thin cushion socks. Experia features an ultra-lightweight mesh polyester frame to provide maximum breathability and an aerodynamic fit for less weight than Thorlos clinically-tested padded socks. It also provides a lightweight Achilles tendon pad that protects against rubbing and chafing while also functioning as a heel lock. The result is the ultimate padded performance sock…beyond all other performance socks.

Two Different Styles: Featuring THOR•WICK®COOL and Merino Wool/Silk


Features include sculpted thinner padding, made primarily with THOR•WICK®COOL to wick moisture away from your feet to the outside of the padded socks, where it can evaporate quickly, keeping your feet cool and comfortable.

Colors: white, black, royal blue, pink,turquoise, navy, berry, electric/neon, yellow, and green.

“I bought these because I love the Experia white low-cut socks that I wear for walking in the summer. I bought these to take to Europe this fall. I have tested them out while doing day long chores that required me to be on my feet. They are just what I hoped for! They are in the suitcase ready to go.” Linda R.

Merino Wool/Silk Design (XWCU)

Features a unique blend of merino wool/silk that adds a bit of warmth (especially for your toes!) during cold weather activities.

Colors: charcoal, chestnut brown, forest green, celery, khaki, pink and blue.

“I wondered about the design and the use of wool and silk in the same socks but after wearing the first three pairs, I ordered three more. They are the most comfortable socks I have. The wool pads the contact points and the silk wicks away moisture.” Gary W.

Why High Design Socks?

Experia multi-sport, performance-engineered LPS are the perfect choice for active people without foot pain or other foot problems and are engineered for activities where less weight and an aerodynamic fit are important. They provide just the right amount of padding in the feet’s strike zones, giving you a competitive edge and, at the same time, the most protection possible without a change in shoe size.

“Best socks I have ever used when distance running. Able to run more often and for longer distances without my feet hurting!” Jeffrey C.

If your feet hurt during or after running/jogging, we strongly recommend our clinically-tested padded running socks. To learn more click here.

Employee Favorite

“I was introduced to them at a marathon expo and initially purchased them for running.  But I discovered this is the perfect sock for everything, from golf to tennis to a walk in the park with my dog. I no longer get blisters when wearing the Experia with THOR•WICK®COOL and my feet don’t feel as wet” Wendy Hogan, Account Service Representative

    Cut a bit too low

    04/18/18 | By

    Thorlo socks are nicely cushioned and nicely ventilated but this particular cut is not good for tennis. Cut too low. Shoe rubs my exposed ankle. Wish socks were cut a bit higher.

    Our son's FAVORITE socks!

    The XCCUs are the best. Perfect amount of cushion and these socks hold up through his heavy usage.

    Comfortable; but NOT No-Show Enough

    04/12/18 | By

    Fit of sock is very nice. But when worn with, e.g., Sperry boat shoes, they 'show.' So as no-show socks, they don't do the trick. Length is between no-show and low-cut.

    Bought three pair two years ago in Waco, and never found them again. Googled from the info in the socks and found them! I'm a very, very big fan. My flat feet love them. You will love e them!

    Difficult review

    04/08/18 | By

    This is a difficult review to write. I know Thorlos pretty well and have had many over the years. All of them are top notch just like these. Stitching and construction is excellent. Color is vibrant. Labeling and tags are all pro. But!- I got these for free for signing up with a gift card. I entered my profile: Male, 62 yrs old, shoe size, farmer. Outdoors all day, all year long in all kinds of weather. So, when I received these I was a bit perplexed to say the least. They really don't fit my profile very well.

    A bigger size made all the difference

    03/30/18 | By

    I posted a review after I originally purchased these socks, rating them as 2. I was unhappy because they didn't stay up during wear. But I've tried a larger size ( wear a 5 1/2 shoe but I'm wearing a sock for sizes 7-9), and they stay up well. They are wonderfully padded and comfortable. I'm so glad I tried another size!
