Family-owned THOR•LO Inc. is marking National Foot Health Awareness Month in April by offering a free pair of its American-made Thorlos® padded socks to everyone in the United States.

"The magic is on the inside of Thorlos," said owner Jim Throneburg, inventor of Thorlos. "When you turn a pair inside out, you notice how dense and resilient the padding is. But seeing is one thing; wearing is believing."

The padding in activity-specific Thorlos has been clinically shown to reduce blisters, pain, pressures and moisture while providing protection and comfort under the ball of the foot, the heel and the toes. The company's proprietary THORLON® acrylic yarn wicks away moisture, ensuring a healthy environment for the foot.

Throneburg noted that by age 50, many people have lost half of the fat pads that protect the bones and soft tissues in their feet.

"We make padded socks, but what we really provide is foot protection," he said. "There are millions of people around the world who won't wear anything but Thorlos."

With the trial offer, Thorlos is hoping to add to its list of devotees.
