Thorlo are an American sock manufacturer who design specialist socks to boost comfort and prevent damage caused by vigorous exercise. They go so far as to say they view themselves as 'caretakers of the world's feet' and once you've tried their socks, you'll see why! Thorlo's unique selling point is their engineered padded technology and activity specific design, which benefit you the wearer, no end. This sees an increase in padding where most downward pressure is applied. The heels and balls of your feet are padded beautifully, which absorbs shock and reduces shear to the footpads, giving a more comfortable ride. Thorlo socks are designed with activities in mind, and so they come in different thicknesses and padding levels for your desired sport or activity. If you're new to Thorlos as a sock brand and are unsure of whether to break the norm from your usual socks, then fear not. Thorlo offer a 30-day money back guarantee, so if you're not completely happy with your new Thorlo socks we'll refund or exchange them for you.
