Different Fibers to Suit Every Need in Socks

(READ ON>>>)


 


We defeat our feet when we do not use the best fibers available to protect them. Thorlos provides that protection.


 

THOR.LON® trademark acrylic yarns are exclusively developed for our Thorlos construction. Trapped perspiration in the shoe environment tends to flatten out or crush common acrylic yarns. THOR.LON®  acrylics are specially spun to maintain both sortness and resillience, which maximizes foot comfort, blister protection and product durability.

Coolmax® - Invista manufactures this fiber with a unique four- channel cross section that produces a soft, cotton-like yarn with such superior moisture transport qualities that skin temperatures prove perceptively cooler in comparison yarn testing. Thorlos with Coolmax provide excellent blister protection while keeping you comfortably cool. Thorlo generally uses more Coolmax in its sock designs than any other sock producer.

Thermolite® by Invista is an excellent wicking fiber designed with an air trapping hollow cross section that produces amazingly warm and comfortable outdoor and ski Thorlos. Thermolite® protects against overheating and keeps you warm even when wet with perspiration.

 

Nylon - Introduced by Dupont in the 1940's as a miracle fiber, stretch nylon makes everything we do possible. Multiple size ranges, good fit, shape retention, along with durability, are key contributions made by various types of continuous filament nylon.

Merino Wool /Silk Blend - Imported "wild" silk is blended 35% with a soft and resilient shrink treated merino wool to produce incredibly warm performance in outdoor and Ski Thorlos. Silk enhances the softness, durability and pill-resistance of natural 100% wool Superior in comfort warmth and durability.

Wool / THOR.LON®  - This performance fiber blend is intended for active cold climate use and is designed for improved blister protection and comfort without sacrificing significant insulating properties of natural wool. The addition of 50% THOR.LON® acrylic improves loft, resiliency, and greatly enhances moisture management qualities that 100% wool yarns alone cannot provide.

Proper protection is the best source of your comfort. Since different fibers have different characteristics, such as Moisture Management, Softness or Hardness, Durability, Temperature Control, Resiliency / Protection, and Microbial Control, It is important to choose the right fiber or combination of fibers when creating the yarns for your given activity.



X-Static® - The Silver Fiber® is a silver coated textile fiber that enhances products with permanent and natural anti-odor, anti-static, thermodynamic properties.
    

Anti-Odor & Antimicrobial :  Silver is recognized in the medical community as the most effective antimicrobial agent available. X-Static uses pure silver to inhibit the growth of odor causing bacteria and fungi in products. X-Static is also the only product that binds with and neutralizes odor-causing ammonia and denatured proteins.

Temperature Regulation :  X-Static has the best possible thermodynamic properties so you stay warmer in the Winter and cooler in the Summer.

Permanent :  Silver is permanently and irreversibly bonded to a fiber to create X-Static. It will not wash out or wear off, lasting for the life of the product.

Proven :  X-Static has been researched and tested for more than 15 years by leading institutions around the world. Surgeons, Military Special Forces, Olympic athletes and NASA astronauts all rely on the proven performance benefits of this technology every day.  


Coolmax® fabric is original permanent high-performance moisture management fabric that helps move moisture away from your skin and keeps you cool, dry, and comfortable.
    

Coolmax® utilizes innovative fiber technology to achieve exceptional performance.

Superior moisture management properties.

Fabrics that often work well on our bodies, work poorly in our shoes.

1)  Cotton, wool & silk, (all natural fabrics), absorb moisture. They retain the water. Even the wool industry claims that wool wicks away foot moisture; this is not true.

2)  Inside the shoes, natural fiber sock fabrics become ineffective and in some cases even harmful to your feet. Becoming saturated in water, (sweat), the fibers collapse. Result: Much less, or No protection.

3) Acrylic "wicks" moisture. "Wicking is defined as transmission or movement of water by capillary action, moving it away from the foot, to the outer layer of a properly fitted shoe, where it is released into the outside environment.

4)  Acrylic cushion sock fabric, or natural fibers properly blended with acrylic, maintains resiliency and provides a more naturally yielding, forgiving, dynamic environment for your foot. It imitates walking barefoot in the sand.

5)  This results in more protection, more comfort, than any other possibility know today.

Net Effect: Acrylic Cushion fabric creates a more "Natural" environment inside a boot or shoe.

The irony is that it requires a man-made (or natural blended with acrylic), fiber to create a more natural surface inside a shoe; but, remember that shoes and boots themselves are "Man-made" surfaces.

Therefore, the most effective protective measure is to help counteract the negative aspects of one "man-made" surface with another "Man-made" surface.

Whereas, though barefoot in sand might be the best natural environment, it is not always practical. Thorlos exclusive acrylic cushion fabric is more "natural" inside your shoe.


Thorlo socks might be the number one name in making feet comfortable. Normally, few people think about how important a sock truly is. The right sock keeps your feet feeling good, and healthy too. Thorlos pride themselves on their wide variety of socks; each is custom made for a specific purpose. People tend to preoccupy themselves with getting supportive shoes when they should also look for supportive socks. Wearing the wrong sock can lead to foot fatigue and irritation when worn in the wrong shoe. Thorlos are designed to help eliminate fatigue as well as blisters and other foot irritations, while at the same time being comfortable and supportive. These boot socks are manufactured within the United States, so that you can support America's workers, while you wear the best socks made for feet. 


( Truth is, that with American technology, there is very little labor per pair of Thorlo socks. Our USA tools and management techniques can produce goods at great savings. The Thorlo sock materials are selected from the best. Each part of your sock is selected and tested for everything you could ever imagine.  What this means to you, is that you are getting the best value for your money. By wearing the best socks made, thus protecting your families feet, you assure that the efforts done today will pay for themselves many times over in less pain, less injury, and less fatigue. ) 

One more thing - These socks wash easily, and they outlast almost every other sock in the marketplace. Personally, they outlast about 3 times, the dress socks I used to buy, and twice the 3 times of my work socks.  I guess two more things - There is no stitch line inside the sock to irritate your toes.  OK, 3 things! They don't bunch up under your feet unless you wear really cheap shoes that would crawl anything. 

Thorlos have a great sizing system. Once you understand it, it's easy. Some of us like a tight fit. Some of like a looser fit. With Thorlos, you can usually wear your choice of two close sizes. They are forgiving and supportive.

Thorlo's TWW Western Work Sock
is a Cultured Cowboy
customer favorite.

TWW Western Mid-Calf Boot Sock - Also known as Thorlos Western Work socks.
    
These socks are specially designed to be worn with lacers, ropers, and any other shafted or 8 inch laced Western work boot. It's exclusive THOR.LON® construction wicks moisture better than traditional socks, and moderate cushioning in the ball/heel of the sock helps reduce shock, impact and blisters. Cushioning in the arch is also added for a better fit and level of comfort. A wider toe box allows for the best fit.

If your calf is extra wide, this boot sock is a good choice because there is just the right amount of "hug". We have found the cushioning to work well with weightlifting and with work boots too. In fact, we have rolled down the tops to wear with lower top footwear, and they still look good.

Available in white (004) or navy denim (401).

Thorlo's WLST Safety Toe Socks give extra protection in the toe box, and the right cushioning underneath your feet.

WLST Safety Steel Toe Socks- Moderate Cushion with extra padding in the toe area.
    
These socks are designed to protect against the steel toe plates found in many work boots and work shoes. It's made with exclusive THOR·LON® construction for resilience, durability and better wicking. Moderate cushioning in the ball/heel reduces blisters, calluses and foot fatigue without the sock being to bulky. Thick cushioning over the toes helps prevent abrasion common in steel-toed footwear and light cushion at the instep protects against lace pad pressure.  Available in black and white.

We have found the extra cushioning around top of the toes also works to wick away more moisture in feet that really sweat a lot. This sock is good for roofing, where you are putting lots of pressure on your toes working steeper pitched homes.
