Top Picks for Thorlo Socks

Thorlo designs socks for active sports including specific socks for walking, hiking, and running. They also design socks for the special needs of women's feet. They research the padding, protection from shearing forces, and other factors needed for a sock for each activity. Then they make them almost immortal - I'm still wearing Thorlos I bought 16 years ago and have washed a hundred times.
