Most of us probably take for granted having warm, dry feet. (You all probably thought I’d be talking something metaphorical like wedding jitters, didn’t ya? But don’t leave yet! I’ll make it worth your while.) With multiple pairs of shoes and socks, we focus on other matters. For me, buying socks has been as challenging as finding that mythical perfect pair of jeans. Diabetes causes circulation problems and my feet are always cold. I’ve gone so far as to wear two pairs of socks layered and pack my shoes with tiny heating pads for toes.
You can probably imagine my elation at discovering a sock that is so thick and cushy as to keep even my feet warm. Thorlo walking socks may be for the jogger, with extra cushioning on the ball and heel to protect against blisters, spandex in the arch for better fit, and construction to wick moisture, but I’m in love with these babies just around the house.
So why am I boring you with talk of socks? Ah, but it gets even better! Thorlo partners with consumers to send socks to our troops in Afghanistan and Iraq. You buy the socks at a 45% discount and Thorlo will ship them for free!
The ideal donation is 3 pairs at $20.85–one pair to wear, one to wash, and one to dry. Think about it, do you want to wear the same pair for weeks at a time, trudging through the desert? Not to mention how sore your feet would be, and these socks are made to handle that.
While you’re there, you can even pick up a pair for yourself, because trust me, these socks are amazing.

Happy Holidays everyone!
