In a world where socks were too soft...
In 2012, we fell deeply in love with Obstacle Course Racing. It ripped us off the treadmill, out of our comfort zone, and unleashed us into the wild outdoors. Events like Spartan Race, Tough Mudder, BattleFrog, and Savage Race tested us and our gear to the limits. We learned that gym socks got soggy in the mud, and that sheer compression socks got shredded on ropes.
We set out to make a tougher compression sock.
MudGear was born to do what nobody else could do; make a performance sock resilient enough to withstand outdoor race conditions and tough enough to help protect racers from the cuts, rope burns, and other injuries common in obstacle course racing.
They Said It Couldn't Be Done - They Forgot About American Muscle
The American sock industry has a long history of quality engineering, but cheap labor gave rise to importing. While others cut costs and cut corners, we knew the world's toughest and best socks should be designed and made in the USA. Leveraging decades of experience with top brands, our designers are experts in the technology of performance sock construction.
Using Premium Yarns and Strong Construction
The difference comes from starting with American yarn blends that are chosen for their durability and comfort. Next, we engineered our socks to achieve specific performance results for their ventilation, moisture management, and abrasion resistance. We built a true graduated compression profile that is optimized for athletic performance and recovery. In layman's terms, our socks stay put and make your legs feel great.
And Tested In The Worst Conditions Possible
Normal testing of compression socks involves stretching them to measure the strength and passing them through a simple abrasion test to see how quickly they show wear. Our testing involves putting them on the world's top obstacle racers and trail runners for trips up and down mountains all day in all types of weather. We test for wicking by fully submerging them in muddy water, and we test abrasion by climbing up and down ropes.
Through It All, We Were Made Tougher
Nobody said it was going to be easy. We heard a lot of "it's not done that way" and "it's not practical". But all the trials and trails made us tougher, and we're now proud to offer the world's best socks for Spartan Race, trail running, rucking, or whatever outdoor adventure you think of next.
Over Engineered By Design
We intentionally over-built the full-length MudGear Tall Compression Sock to meet the demands of obstacle course racers and surpass your expectations. The result is true graduated compression made from premium American yarns.
Great for distance running
The compression feels incredible and the fabric works beyond expectations at keeping my feet from developing blisters from moisture retention. Can't say enough great things about them!
I was looking for socks to protect my legs while competing in OCR‘s. These worked out great. Very happy. Will buy more.
Will be buying more
Loved the socks, planning on buying another pair
These are the only socks I use for OCR. They are very comfortable & hold up well. It feels like the only time I need to get a new pair are when new designs are released
Lt Dan! You got Magic Socks!
The most comfortable compression socks I’ve ever worn! (And I’ve worn many over the years) One of the best things about MudGear socks is once they get wet and dry out they are still easy to pull off. That’s a big plus in my opinion.
Love my mud gear compression socks
I have been using mud gear compression socks for years among other brands. They are by far my favorite and they honor their warranty.
Perfect for Tall and Not Small
I am 6'6" male that weighs 225 lbs. I also suffer from varicose veins. Although not prescription stockings, MudGear's Tall Compression Socks are incredible. I have 10 pairs and wear them all the time. My life includes too much office work, five active kids, plenty of Crossfit, and not enough of the outdoors. I need socks that can keep up in the office and the obstacle course. Thanks MudGear for a great product!!
Comfortable and Reliable!
I love using MudGear capris and compression socks for racing, training, and recovery. The material holds up great in sweaty, wet, and muddy conditions and lasts a long time! I highly recommend them!!
