Description

Hikers do it longer in their socks.

When you're stomping out miles of serious hiking, your socks can be your most important make-or-break piece of equipment. Thorlos gets it. The Men's Hiking Thick-Cushion Thor-Lon Crew Sock puts cushion where you need it to reduce fatigue and allow you to hike longer, or just feel better doing it. Thick cushioning at the the ball of the foot and the heel reduces shock, while moderate cushioning at the instep protects your arch from pressure form your boot. If that's not enough, Thorlos added a ventilation panel to help wick moisture away to keep you dry and comfortable.

what a disappointment!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

Literally half the sock my last Thorlo purchase was for the same $20 per pair! Thinner in weight, shorter in length. Very VERY disappointed I spent $120 on 6 pr of socks that won't last 6 months. Two stars because I usually ignore 1 and 5 star ratings.

Awesome Socks!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I purchased two pairs of Thorlos Thor-lon hiking socks 18 months ago. These are the only two pairs of socks I've worn during that time, rotating between pairs. I wear them in my trail running shoes (which I wear everywhere). Result: no noticeable wear on either pair, and they are warm (but not hot) and very comfortable. They will likely last me another two years at this rate.

Good cushioning without overheating

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I?ve used these socks in the jungle with Salomon X Ultra GTX and in the desert mountains with my Scarpa hiking boots. The cushioning and padding were great and my feet didn?t get clammy despite the warm weather and Gore-Tex shoes.
Some people are commenting on durability- for me it?s been so far so good but I haven?t had them for that long.
They?re true to size.

A good back up

An average to good hiking sock. Nice padding and a snug fit, but wears out quickly on the heel and ball of foot. Also after only a day of heavy use tends to be stiff and crunchy from sweat, ready to be changed. Just fine if you use for just one day.

Fragile socks for sliding

These socks are slippery on just about any surface. My feet slides around in them as well.

After just a few hours of usage the socks show clear signs of heavy wear. Fabric fibres coming off on heel and ball of the foot.

One pair arrived with multiple damage to the knitting.

The padding is nice, hence the two stars.

Love these

I used to just buy a big sack of socks at the local discount store until a couple of years ago when I bought my first pair of hiking socks from Wigwam. I bought a pair of these Thorlos on a whim when I ordered a jacket from Backcountry and I'm so glad I did. The sole is so squishy and cushiony, and the part that goes around your leg isn't tight like many others can be. It's very soft and doesn't leave a "sock print" around my leg at the end of the day. I'm ordering more of them.

Thorlos Thick Cushion

These socks have proved very durable for me, I wear mine with a liner sock and they wash really well when I'm in the BC. They handle moisture very well which helps them not break down after a long day, Great sock.

Tried and true

I have been wearing Thorlos for hiking for many years and I love them. They wick perspiration well and provide a lot of cushioning. Also, they're very durable and hold they're shape.
