thorlo giveaway


For today's giveaway, 4 winners will each receive a pair of Experia socks from Thorlo! {ARV$13.99 each}
Open to US and Canada!

You can't put a price on happy feet!

Thorlo's Experia socks are amazing --like a luxurious spa day for tired feet. Why Thorlos? If you like a good pair of socks that won't rip on you and is sculpted to contour to the natural ball of your foot and heel strike pattern, then Thorlos (especially the Experia ones) are for you. An interesting thing to note about Thorlos is that each type is created for different kind of feet and for different sorts of active lifestyles. (Thorlo features socks structured for running, tennis, walking, basketball and more!)

Although I would normally recommend these socks for everyone who values comfort, at $13.99 a pair this item might not fit into many people's budget. However, I seriously think that athletes and anyone who exercises daily (even at a low-impact/moderate level) would appreciate the sturdiness of these socks. In my experience, even after repeated use, the socks maintained their cushioned appeal. Sure, they displayed a little wear after a few washings, but the spring and snug fit were still there. Overall, I love them and might invest in a few pairs for my afternoon walks!

More from the company website:

"The Thorlos anatomically designed, patented terry padding protects your feet from these forces. The padding reduces static pressure and impact, and diminishes shearing forces through what we call the 'Control·Slide®' phenomenon . This means that instead of the tissues on your feet moving in opposite directions, the terry padding moves under your feet, transferring the movement from the tissues of the foot to the terry padding itself."

Some more Thorlo sock options:

Walking Socks, eXtreme Snowboarding Socks, and Running Socks.
