A Tougher Rucking Sock
The MudGear Ruck Sock is a tactical hiking boot sock with tough yet comfortable merino wool to cushion and prevent blisters. Maintaining our legacy of functional style for maximum miles, we’ve pulled out all the stops to deliver the MudGear Ruck Sock.
Built for Real Ruckers
MudGear worked directly with die-hard ruckers and ruck event cadre to understand their unique needs and produce a premium Ruck sock that blends the best of traditional tactical and performance sock elements. Every detail of the sock is engineered to be tough, durable and comfortable under weight and over long miles.
Unapologetically superior design
While most traditional tactical boot socks use a single yarn construction, the MudGear Ruck sock utilizes four functional fibers to execute specific performance elements where they are needed most for fit and function. The footbed and heel pocket are the most critical areas for comfort, abrasion resistance, and moisture management. We selected a high-grade merino wool and polypropylene blend that feels as good as it functions. While soft to the touch, the combo achieves incredible toughness, durability, and the added benefit of natural antimicrobial odor control. You'll be able to go ruck or hike for many miles.
Constructed with American Muscle
One of the best advantages of the MudGear Ruck Sock is the form-fitting construction of the foot arch between heel and toe areas. Compared to the best alternatives on the market, the MudGear sock has a snugger fit with more stretch. A Nylon/Spandex blend borrowed from our top-rated trail running socks keeps the Ruck Sock stable, reducing the foot movement that leads to friction and blisters. The arch design features vertical channels for moisture movement, and additional temperature and moisture control is provided by mesh ventilation features on the top of the foot.
If you're wearing 2 pairs of socks, you have the wrong socks
Other top sock brands are known to require a sock liner to prevent blisters. The superior stability of the MudGear Ruck Sock reduces movement and eliminates the need for a sock liner. The thickness of the footbed and heel pad are dialed in for use as a single layer. In a sport where every ounce and piece of gear is scrutinized, your socks should be self-sufficient, not needing a supplemental comfort item. Less is more.
Rucking is all about moving with a purpose while leaving no person or tool behind. That’s our mission too. MudGear Ruck Socks - Made Tougher
WHEN NOTHING ELSE IS COMFORTABLE
The MudGear Ruck Sock is a game changer! It reinvented the way ruckers prep for long and heavy hauls. Not only that. It was a game changer for us too! The Ruck Sock was MudGear's first venture into Merino wool and our first crew height sock. To both points, our fans responded with a resounding, "Yes, please...more of that!" Now, MudGear Ruck Socks have been put to the test at Ruckfest, the GORUCK Games, and various GORUCK challenges. Let's be honest. There is nothing "comfy" about hauling an extra 20, 30, maybe 40lbs. for miles at at time. EXCEPT for your feet. With MudGear Ruck socks, your feet actually feel pretty great!
Outstanding fit and comfort when rucking through the streets and trails.
Awesome company and amazing socks
If you're into obstacle racing, rucking, or even just hiking then you know how important good foot wear is during the events. I've made made the mistake of not getting good gear and my feet paid the price. Since going to Mudgear and getting the appropriate socks I haven't had to double up or change them out in the middle of my rucks. Mudgear is an incredible company, with an amazing team, and they are known for their quality in the obstacle racing community. I'd recommend them (and have) to anyone because of the care and passion they have for every customer they have. Definitely five stars.
Best customer service
I ruck every day, sometimes as much as 3-5 mi. So when I developed a hole in one of my socks I reached out to customer service. They were very friendly, very helpful, and didn't hesitate to offer a replacement pair at no charge. I love these socks, and I will definitely be ordering more!!
Amazing for rucking
I was skeptical of the price of the sock because it is on the high end of most hiking & rucking socks. I recently did a 12 mile ruck in the rain wearing these and it was the first time in 10 years that I did not get one blister. I was starting to get hot spots, but the next day I was back to normal. I strongly recommend and will be getting more pairs myself.
Best Socks for Endurance Athletes!
I absolutely love these socks. I can wear them for events that are 24+ hours and feel the right amount of comfort, without feeling like they are cutting off my circulation.
I have not been a regular user of high socks but I have to say.. I wish I had more pairs of these because they’re perfect for everything I do, and I can’t do laundry fast enough. I didn’t realize how much a sock could literally hug and support my foot!! Definitely love these socks and will cherish them :)
Mud Gear Ruck Socks
Socks definitely made a huge impact on my ruck! I did the Norwegian Ruck march in september and my old socks did some damage on my feet! My ruck I did this month was a little over 7 miles and the socks left me without any blisters or damage to my feet!
Same great sock in a new color!
I have plenty of the black and grey, a couple of the grey and black and now the tan. Absolutely awesome socks!
