Maximum foot protection for enjoying rugged day hikes or extended backpacking on varied to difficult terrain resulting in moderate to significant stress on feet.
I first bought two pair of these socks in 2011 when I started hiking to lose weight. At first I was miserable due to blisters, but, after getting these socks - NO MORE BLISTERS! I worked my hiking up to 4 to 7 times a week for 4-7 hours at a time. With these socks, every step was a pleasure!
First Pair and I can tell I'm hooked :) I love these socks - fit perfectly - warm my feet up but not too hot - I love these!!!! - Just another addon to my previous post (first statement). Some time has passed and no long am I just hooked I"m in love with this brand and will probably never go back again! These are great for anyone who loves thick socks, form fitting and just the perfect amounts of elasticity, not too tight and never too lose! I love the added arch support and it is so helpful for anyone whose feet just need some extra tlc because they hurt or you stand on them all day et al - it's a superb match. I wouldn't suggest these with reg shoes without much room for extra padding from the socks as it's a very thick sock and will indeed take away shoe space. Tennis shoes are iffy for some probably esp if you wear a tight fitting pair however if you allow some room to give way to the sock you will be fine. Boots are a fine match esp hiking or biking boots. These wear well and haven't fallen apart or gave way to my constant wearing of them and I'm now a repeat customer and will always be such. You will love these if you wear/love thick socks! Dreamy indeed!
I positively LOVE Thorlos. I bought my original hiking Thorlos in the mid-1990s when I worked as an EMT to wear with my boots. I had about 8 or so pairs, most of which I still have today, although some of the heels have worn through. They are high quality, comfty, not too hot and when I recently needed better socks to wear with Achilles tendon injury, these were what I choose.
My original purchase of Thorlo socks was about 8 years ago I bought 8 pair at a sporting goods storeI loved them and wore them continuously for 8 years..finally wore the heels thru so I bought 3 pairs of these,
I was a little apprehensive about which size to get, but on the package, it said the medium should be for 7-9 shoe size. I actually wear 9.5, but very glad I opted for this size - they aren't too tight or short - larger size would be too big. And VERY cushy and warm. Ankles are also just the right amount of elastic - I have kind of large ankles, but these are neither too tight nor too loose.
I bought these for my wife when I saw her darning her old Thorlos (I didn’t know anyone still darned socks). However, I only ordered one pair because things change, and I wanted to make sure these socks were of the very same good quality as her worn-out socks. They are, and I’m ordering five more pair tonight because she’s washed these new ones every night so that she can wear them every day. Comfortable, soft, good-looking, and will last for years. Yes, they’re a little pricey, but you get what you pay for. And you’re on your feet a LOT. I am a serious hiker (AT, the Rockies, etc) and I wear Thorlos. My wife doesn’t hike, but she wants comfortable, quality cushioned socks. I seldom give five stars, but these socks earn every single one of them.
These are very comfortable socks - both for hiking and just for walks with the dog, doing yard work, or hanging around the house.
I was looking for some thicker, cushioned and absorbent walking socks for winter. These socks fit the bill. I love how soft they are inside, the constuction being looped like cotton sports socks, but with excellent wicking properties, because they are not cotton. Not had any issue wearing regards blisters, when wearing as the only pair i.e no liner socks.
My favourite socks EVER. I will continue to buy these as long as they make then.
These are labeled as for men/women in description so I thought they were unisex. I bought these for my husband but these are labeled as and definitely are women’s size L socks. They are too small for him and otherwise seem to be great quality and soft.
Es un excelente producto para caminatas de muchos kilómetros (nosotros las usamos para caminatas de 25km diarios), Thorlos es una marca que he comprado con anterioridad y creo que es la mejor para senderismo extremo. El precio va de acuerdo a la calidad del producto. Lo único que le mejoraría a la marca son los colores que manejan.
Me encantó la compra y el precio también súper bien
