What Elijah Has To Say About Thorlo

As a Thorlo ambassador, Elijah shares how Thorlo has been helping him in his journey:

"I have been using Thorlo socks for over 3 months now to help me in training and competition for professional squash.

Before using Thorlo socks, I had problems with blisters and heel pain for many years as a result of constant pressure and friction caused by squash training and competition.

I have tried many different solutions such as changing my insoles, changing shoes, and taping my feet. None of these solutions worked nearly as well as a change in socks from various cotton-based socks to Thorlo socks.

What Elijah Has To Say About The Thorlo Edge Court Socks

The Thorlo Edge Court Socks have extra padding on the forefoot and heels of the foot, which are key areas of my feet that require protection to absorb pressure and friction.

The socks are extremely lightweight and breathable, which has helped me move fast and freely without compromising comfort.

The Edge Court Socks have kept my feet dry in all different conditions both on and off-court. This has helped keep my feet blister-free, despite training in humid and wet conditions that previously caused blisters.

These socks are extremely durable, still providing me with all of the above benefits after months of constant use, whereas the previous socks I used would often rip.

I would recommend the Edge Court Socks to anyone who requires a lightweight, moisture-wicking sock but still need extra protection of the forefoot and heel.

What Elijah Has To Say About The Thorlo Tennis Socks

The Thorlo Tennis Socks are incredibly comfortable and have extra padding on all areas of the foot for maximum protection.

The moisture-wicking material of the Tennis Socks has helped keep my feet dry in all sorts of conditions, which has stopped blisters on my toes and the balls of my feet.

The extra padding has helped absorb pressure and friction on my feet which has prevented blisters and heel pain.

Although these socks are thicker and have great padding, they are also surprisingly lightweight which allows me to move fast and freely.

After months of constant use, these socks still have excellent padding and have stayed in great condition.

I would recommend the Tennis Socks to anyone looking for a comfortable, moisture-wicking sock with protection on all areas of the foot."
