What's So Great About Thorlo

Well for starters, they take the sock business as seriously as NASA takes space exploration. Thorlo has invested a great deal of time and money into researching different types of fibers, as well as how they fare when used during different activities. Thorlo has proprietary blends of natural occuring fibers such as wool, mixed with synthetics such as special acrylic fibers. These specialty fiber blends cannot be purchased anywhere else. They are available exclusively from Thorlo.

The people at Thorlo firmly believe that you should be wearing different socks for different activities, and that one size fits all doesn't cut it when it comes to your feet. For instance, we have discussed how wool is an excellent insulator in previous posts. We have also mentioned that it absorbs water to almost no end, and offers ineffective foot protection once it has been saturated. Thorlo realizes this, and has performed many tests to develop what they believe is the best solution depending on your activity. If you want to go skiing they have the right sock for you. The same goes if you want to hike, play basketball, and so on. Different activities present unique stresses to your feet, and one sock simply cannot protect in all scenarios.

If you're serious about taking care of your feet, consider the benefits of some high tech Thorlo socks. You'll be wondering how you ever lived without them.
