A Note About Fat Pads On Your Feet And 50 Plus'ers

One little known fact about our feet is that as we age, something called 'fat pads' on the bottoms of our feet deteriorate. By the time we're over 50 we've lost a good portion of that fat padding. That fat padding is what absorbs a lot of the shock when we walk.

Thorlo designs their sock padding to make up for this loss of natural fat pads in your feet as you age. Learn a lot more here about this very important factor.

A Few Facts About Thorlo Socks
