Anybody Want A THORLOS?

I have been into running since my “fitness awakening” in the year 2005. Through the years, as I get to love this sport more, I have accumulated a lot of learning gathered from mentors, coaches, friends, reading materials and most importantly, actual experiences.

One of those important learnings that I have always kept in mind is that a runner’s performance/comfort not only lies on choosing a good pair of shoes but also in choosing a perfect pair of socks to use with the shoes. The socks after all is the main item which gets into contact with our feet. With a poor sock-selection, blisters are a big possibility together with sweaty, smelling feet that more often than not leads to smelly feet.

When I received an invite for the Thorlo socks launch, I have thought that ah, finally I will get to know more about this premium socks brand and have an appreciation why it is priced higher than the common running-specific socks brand. And these are bits and pieces of what I learned from the launch:

  • it is an American brand of customized and scientifically structured socks for individual sports used by top athletes (Thorlo has a line of socks for other sports such as basketball, tennis, golf, hiking, mountaineering, and many more!)
  • as a support and recognition of the health and benefits that running brings to people, the brand has developed an extensive line of socks specifically designed to cater to runner’s needs
  • Thorlos is the one of the very few global pure socks brands in the Philippines, others are locally produced while other brands offer socks as side products only
  • Thorlos emphasizes education on the importance of FOOT-SHOE-SOCKS-FIT experience to draw maximum benefits, protection and comfort
  • is one of the few sports brands backed up by well-explained science and recipient of numerous awards and endorsements by scientific institutions, medical societies and athletic groups (Thorlo is the first line of socks to be granted the Seal of Acceptance by the American Podiatric Medical Association)
  • Thorlos socks cannot be faked and each and every pair was made using patented machines, yarns (particularly THOR-LON) and designs. No outsourcing was done hence all Thorlos socks around the world were made thru the strictest quality control of the company in North Carolina, USA
  • used to hearing shoes providing cushioning? Hey, Thorlo socks also provides cushioning through its unique Impact Zone feature which is said to lower dynamic impact at the heels.
  • are made up of different fibers that are meant to provide moisture management, softness, durability, temperature control, resiliency/protection and microbial control.
And here are some of their socks collection made specific for running:

These socks may be at bit pricey but if you are one for comfort, protection and durability, a Thorlo socks purchase may after all be a sound investment for you. We were told that these line of socks last for as long as 10 to 20 years!

Personally, I have yet to try my THORLO Thin Cushion pair that was provided to us with compliments during the launch but I was also particularly pretty interested in getting that EXPERIA model which I always see whenever I go to Riovana for a visit. I might probably purchase and try that one out first as it is said to be the premium model for running.

As I prepare to try on a pair, I with the support of Colerosh Incorporated – exclusive distributor of Thorlo socks here in the Philippines, will be giving out THREE PAIRS OF THORLO SOCKS to three lucky runners of this blog so that they too can join me in my “discovery” of the Thorlo brand of socks.
