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 most running socks were made for roads.
We set out to make a tougher trail running 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 course itself.
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 in a medium level ankle compression to keep out dirt from the trail. In layman's terms, our trail socks make your feet feel great.
And Tested In The Worst Conditions Possible
Normal testing of running socks involves 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 durability by ultra distance marathons.
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 toughest (and most comfortable) trail running sock on the planet. It also happens to be our go-to sock for training, Spartan Stadium Races, and everyday wear.
High Ankle Shield Keeps out dirt and rocks
The first thing you'll notice about these socks is the relatively high ankle that is tight enough to keep out dirt and rocks, but it's not a tight compression fit. The footbed is soft and cushioned but not thick in a way that will soak up and hold water or mud.
she loves them
i love mine so much i had to purchase some for the people i love
Some kick *** socks!
I’m a new, baby trail runner preparing for my first trail marathon. I took these out on a 13 mile close to 4 hour trail run and WOO THEY ARE AMAZING! My feet felt cushioned and dry the whole time. Thank you!
Super soft and comfortable compression sock!
Socks are hugely impactful in the comfort of athletic events. Until trying MUDGEAR, I typically wore Bombas. I didn’t think I’d find another sock with better compression or “just right” cushion. I’ve now converted— MUDGEAR socks are the BEST! I like them for running, hiking, cycling, and trail running.
No more blisters!
Love these running socks! They are comfortable, love the higher length. Best of all, I no longer get blisters when I run! Not to mention, the color and pattern are so fun!
No hot spots
I love the compression. I hate when socks are loose and fall down. I also love that the seam isnt very noticeable. Most socks leave my pinky toe burning from the seam rubbing on it.
Best Running socks
Love these for trail running and racing. Slight compression, comfortable fit and they do not hold on to moisture. I wouldn’t wear anything else.
FAVORITE SOCKS EVER!
I love the support of these socks and how they feel next to my skin. I wear them when it’s 10 degrees and 110 degrees. I run OCR and on the road. I love them for all my running needs.
