Thorlo Socks: Unisex WGX 305 Black Uniform Crew Socks
Are your feet dead tired at the end of the day? Do they ache so bad you have to rub them for a good while to soothe away the soreness? Don’t blame your long shift, blame your work socks! You’ve heard of the benefits of wearing supportive shoes with plenty of cushioning, but have you heard of the benefits of wearing cushioned socks? Standing on a hard work floor for 8 hours or longer can take its toll on your feet. We’re here to give your poor old feet some relief. You’ll feel the relief from the moment you slip on a pair of Thorlo Unisex WGX305 Moderate Cushion Uniform Socks.
Made of exclusive THOR-LON construction, these black Thorlo Socks are specially spun with acrylic fibers to maintain both softness and resilience. They’re designed to offer an ideal combination of protection, comfort and durability for all career apparel needs.
Standing on a concrete work floor all day is as unpleasant as it sounds. Because you can never get too much cushioning for your feet, you’ll welcome the strategically placed padding in these uniform crew socks. The moderate cushioning in the balls and heels of these uniform socks reduce shock, impact and blisters, while the light cushioning in the arches provides a better, supportive fit.
One of the problems with trapping your feet in shoes or boots all day is the hot, sweaty mess you're left with by the end of your shift. To help lessen the moisture and stink factor, these unisex socks keep your feet drier by wicking away moisture and pulling it out and away from your feet.
Don’t just accept your tired, achy feet as part of your job description. There’s some relief out there and it comes in the form of these Thorlo socks, the Thorlo Unisex WGX 305 Black Moderate Cushion Uniform Crew Uniform Socks.
I have worn the same Gold Toe soft acrylic knit socks with cushioned soles for years and really liked them. When it was time to add a few more, I discovered that none of the department stores still carried them. Online research showed a disturbing picture. Reviews were in wide agreement that Gold Toe had moved production to China resulting in a dramatic drop in quality. Not wishing to risk poor socks, it was time to find a replacement – something surprisingly hard to do.
I first tried a couple pair of Wigwam acrylic crew socks. Nice but substantially heavier. I think they would be just too warm for summer use. Plus they look even less like dress socks.
I then found the Thorlo WGX 305 Socks on the Working Person’s Store website. They had the right description so I ordered a couple pair to try. They seem to have the correct balance of features: cushioned sole, very soft, and about the right amount of stretch. Subtly different but easily as comfortable as the old socks from Gold Toe. Nice enough that I stopped searching and ordered several more pair.
They are not cheap. Not all that expensive either, but more than the typical department store. I did not find a better source than Working Person's Store. In fact, they are not that common. The fact that I ordered more means I thought they were worth the premium price. Now the remaining big question is durability – ask me in a couple years.
