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.

    padded socks

    By

    These socks are great , I just went thru foot surgery (Mortons neuroma excision), I need the padding , but without the stitching in the arch area - because foot was swollen still). I bought a larger size then I wear , because I cant have them too tight. These socks were just perfect , normally I wear your Experia padded dress socks - extra padding for sensitive feet without the bulk!

    GREAT WALKING SOCKS, TOO!

    I work out of my home office, so I wear these socks every day with my walking shoes. I am committed to walking to keep my body in great shape. Whether I am walking or sitting at my desk, my feet stay dry, feel protected, cozy, without pain and that makes me feel great all day long!!! Thorlo socks are the best for me!

    Great Protection and Comfort

    By

    These socks are comfortable, cushy and prevent my feet from blisters while training for marathons. They dry quickly and wear long. Air dry to prolong wear. They also keep my feet dry during long runs in the heat and humidity in the South.

    Bring back the original elastic top. The bulky "improvement" is terrible.

    Comfortable and Pain Free

    By

    I have nerve damage in legs and feet from paralysis 40 years ago. Some atrophy in leg mussels and no padding on bottom of my feet. Thorlo XJ’s allow me to walk briskly without pain or discomfort. Walking 3 miles 3 times a week. Not bad for an 86 year old guy b
