Thorlos Socks Product Review & Giveaway

I recently had the wonderful opportunity to review two pairs of socks from Thorlos.

Visit Thorlos online at http://www.thorlo.com/

I really liked the XCCU Experia Cool Max - Thin Cushion - Micro Mini HERE (in pink, of course!). These thin cushion socks were awesome. These are designed for endurance athletes that don't like bulky socks and prefer a thin cushion and minimal foot protection. They are NOT designed for athletes with any distracting foot issues. They claim protection without weight and an aero-dynamic fit. I would definitely agree with the protection in ball of the foot and at the heel. The achilles pad is made of a durable nylon, as this is where most people tend to wear their socks out (I experience this too!). The coolmax is used in the cushion, for enhanced moisture management.


"Sample" / Testing Pair
(a.k.a one-of-a-kind)

The Experia line was just launched in February. Be one of the first endurance athletes to try them out! Thorlo also offers several other items with more cushioning, should you prefer more.


I wear a size 10 shoe and wore the US (W) 9.5-11.5 comfortably.


I've worn the Experia Socks 4 times now and a sample (one-of-a-kind!) pair once. I really enjoyed my experience with these socks and the other sample pair I tried out. I really like the variety of color and styles they offer. A girl can find a pair to match every cute running outfit she owns! At $13.99, I wouldn't have personally made the investment (because I'm cheap ... and on a strict budget currently). But, my experience trying them out has been awesome.


Thorlo suggests that you wash them inside out with a liquid fabric softener in the wash, never bleach them and the put them in the dryer on a medium setting. They claim that they will last for years. Mine (including the sample pair) have been holding up very well in the few times I've washed them (but with a fabric softener sheet).

  51. I wear Thorlo Experia too and I'm pretty satisfied with them. I like the extra cushion for long runs but the thinness for the hot months. Also, they come in so many cute colors!

  53. Interesting socks. I'm too cheap for expensive socks. I go to Wal-mart and buy two packs of the Hanes Sports Socks. they are moisture wicking, have a little padding and thinner in the arch to promote cooling. The best part - 2 pairs for $4 :)...Guess my feet just aren't that picky.
