To mark National Foot Health Awareness Month in April 

STATESVILLE, N.C. (April 1, 2014) – Now here’s an offer that should bring a smile to your feet!

Family-owned THOR•LO, Inc. is marking National Foot Health Awareness Month in April by offering a free pair of its American-made Thorlosâ padded socks to everyone in the United States.

“The magic is on the inside of Thorlos,” said owner Jim Throneburg, inventor of Thorlos. “When you turn a pair inside out, you notice how dense and resilient the padding is. But seeing is one thing; wearing is believing.” 

Hence, the free offer, which represents a retail value of $14.99 per pair. To take advantage of this offer, visit 

The padding in activity-specific Thorlos has been clinically shown to reduce blisters, pain, pressures and moisture while providing protection and comfort under the ball of the foot, the heel and the toes. The company’s proprietary THORLON® acrylic yarn wicks away moisture, ensuring a healthy environment for the foot. 

Throneburg noted that by age 50, many people have lost half of the fat pads that protect the bones and soft tissues in their feet. 

“We make padded socks, but what we really provide is foot protection,” he said. “There are millions of people around the world who won’t wear anything but Thorlos.” 

With the trial offer, Thorlos is hoping to add to its list of devotees. 


Family-owned THOR•LO Inc. manufactures its socks in Statesville, N.C., and operates a distribution center in Rockwell, N.C. THOR•LO is the originator of activity-specific padded socks, and the Thorlosâ brand provides consumers with foot protection and comfort. Scientific, peer-reviewed research stands behind the Thorlos promise: “Your Feet Will Feel Better.” For more information about Thorlos visit

    I have used Thor Lo socks from San Gorgonio, Yosemite, the Cascades of Washington and Oregon, Sawtooth National Recreation Area, Boulder White Clouds and over the Lost River range. I have tried other brands but always find Thor lo socks to be the best friend your feet will have.

      Thanks Dennis, for allowing us to be a caretaker of your feet!

  2. Originally I purchased Thorlo socks on a whim. It was an outlet store so I thought I’d get a bargain. That was back in the late ’80s. I have purchased no other brand since; always Thorlo. For walking, dress, hiking – nothing beats Thorlos. As a diabetic, I can honestly say I’ve never had the foot pain so many complain about. Then again, I always wear Thorlos. My wife is a Yoga teacher. I now make sure she has Thorlos as well. Let me sum up by saying there are only a very few products I recommend. Thorlos leads the list. Thank you for Thorlos for your commitment to quality.

    In the two weeks I have been wearing Thorlo walking socks, my metatarsalgia has been reduced 50 % and my energy level is somuch higher. I wear them everywhere now, not just for walking. I have also discovered the Lite running anklet style fits beautifully under my thin funky novelty socks!

    I want to get a free pair for my mothrr-in-law. She is 83 years old, and a diabetic. She has problems walking and I want her to try them. If she likes them I will purchase some more for her.
