    I have been wearing Thorlo Thick Cushioned and Reinforced Running and Sports socks since the late 60's. I first wore them for tennis, then racquetball for a total of 37 years. I'd buy six pair, then a dozen pair at a time, and mark them so that they got even wear. (Originally, you could get Thorlos with colored bands at the top - blue, red, grey, and plain.) In the last 5 years that I played - and played 6 days a week - any one pair of socks would last a month to 6 weeks maximum. It would not have been so bad, but they did not wear through where the reinforced heel was, but through the toe and at the ball of the foot. Whether the problem with the ball of the foot was left or right, I don't know. Both socks wore through in both places.

    I wrote to Thorlo when I had "stored up" 30 pair of socks and, since I ordered direct for the last 10 years, they sent me three free pair. Unfortunately, they had no reinforcement, and they ran within two weeks of wearing them. Just catch them on a toe nail or part of the shoe, and they ran. Comfortable, but they didn't last even when I just walked in them.

    My solution - when I was still playing racquetball - was to wear two pair at the same time. Even then, some just had to be discarded when there were holes three inches around on the soles.

    Last year, I switched to Nikes at half the cost. I have had no trouble whatsoever with the Nikes and though they're not as soft as Thorlo, at least I'm getting my money's worth. (A little softener in the water does nicely.) I just got six pair for $16.65. So, while I'm sorry to report that Thorlos are no longer what they used to be, I'm fairly confident that after 35+ years, I'm giving them a fair and accurate review.

    These are great socks if you spend a lot of time on your feet, or do a lot of walking. I have a narrow heel, and these padded socks make sure I never get blisters. My feet also perspire, and these socks wick the moisture. Finally talked my husband into trying them, and he was surprised at how much better his feet felt at the end of a long day. When you wash them, don't keep them together by folding one sock over both socks or the "cuff" will break down and loose its shape. Thorlo also tells you that!

    If you have never run a marathon, hiked 25 miles,walked the length and breadth of new york metropolitan museum then you would not appreciate the sheer comfort of this sock over any other. A long time favorite eclipsed in my opinion, only by smart wool products.

    In the past, this brand of socks has been my absolute favorite and well worth the price. However, this pair was awful. They pilled horribly after the first wash, and looked like they had been worn for years. Don't waste your money.

    I have worn these socks for years and absolutely love them. I live in them, literally, most of the year. I live in Minnesota, where it is cold for several months each year. The double-thick soles on these socks allow me to move around the house in my stocking feet all winter without my feeting feeling cold. They also keep my feet warm when I put on my boots and go outside. Any time that fashion does not dictate more formal socks, these are the ones I am wearing.

    They also wash up very well and last a long time.

    I am a woman and most men's or unisex socks are too wide--I end up with little "ears" sticking out at the corner of the toes. But not with these socks. They "stretch in" to fit me just great from toe to heel to ankle.

    I've been wearing these socks for years while I've been running or otherwise not having to be "dressed up." They last for years, are comfortable, warm and really cushion my old feet! None better.

    Cost is always a factor when rating a product and my "free pair" from Thorlo cost $5 for S/H. I might or might not be inclined to order more at that price if available, which reveals my level of satisfaction in terms of quality and comfort vs price. I have worn and laundered this pair one time and have yet to determine longevity/durability factor.

    $15.00? regular price is beyond comprehension for this product, which is decent quality but not worth $15 IMHO. I am not surprised by the reviews which indicate this design is less substantial than
    when they first started wearing them. It appears to be very similar to a cushion sock I am well acquainted with which cost $2.50 normally and $2 a pair on sale. Unfortunately the US mfg shut down about six yrs ago.

    For many years, beginning in 2004 Texas Steer Super Cushion was my sock
    of choice. $5 for two pair or $2 each on sale at Kmart. Sears also stocked them I heard. They are still my favorite sock for everyday use. At one point I had an inventory of 80 pair, which was a wise decision since Kmart stopped stocking them years ago and the North Carolina manufacturer closed shop after 50 years. Don't recall which event happened first. My inventory is now only 14 pair and I am searching the market for a similar product. I don't expect to find the same bargain but will never pay $15 for a pair of padded socks. 5 to $7 maybe.

    Clayton Knitting Company was the manufacturer of Texas Steer brand. I spoke with the owner when Kmart inventory ran low and he sent me a dozen pair gratis. It was a very enlightening conversation. He correctly stated they were the same quality of products selling for 2 to 3x the price and I am now convinced of that fact. They are very similar to the $15 Thorlo.
