“I find most running socks too thick or thin. This casual cushioning is just right, and the height is on-point. You guys get me!”

Product Description



We’ve heard story after story from customers reminiscing about their first race. They once thought “any socks will do.” That’s adorable. By the time they come to us, they’ve already learned the hard way that everything matters: the fit, the feel, the height, and the durability. MudGear 5” Crew Height Trail Running Socks are the perfect hybrid for runners wanting to protect more than their ankles, but who don’t need the maximum coverage of our taller compression socks. These crew height socks land well above the ankle but below the calf with a firm but comfortable fit. 


We needn’t tell you MudGear 5” Crew Height Trail Running Socks are built from the finest American yarn blends - only because that has become the MudGear standard. The Crew have the same strategic thread placement and medium compression as our signature trail socks (the original ¼ Crew). We continue to obsess over proper ventilation, moisture management, and abrasion resistance.  However, none of that matters if they don’t leave your feet feeling amazing. Just like our shorter socks, Crew delivers everyday comfort you won’t find from lesser brands. 


Every aspect of our socks are deliberate. The footbed is soft and cushioned but not thick in a way that will soak up water or hold mud. Ventilation on the lower arch and upper foot allow for air flow and to help with drainage. The sock wears comfortably despite being built to shed water quickly. Plus, with its higher cut, Crew makes it easier for you to show off your calves and the MudGear fist for everyone to see.


We’ve received incredible feedback about how these socks fit. They’re high and tight enough to keep out dirt and rocks but comfortable for putting in long miles. Our athletes say they like feeling the added support of medium compression between the ankle and the calf. It’s never painful or distracting, but you can tell it’s just tight enough to keep the socks in place in any condition. Whether crawling over walls or under wires, MudGear 5” Crew Height Trail Running Socks serve as lower shin guards but without any added pressure on your calves.

Why Choose MudGear


Crew height accommodates the masses. Trail runners like that they're not too short, but they're not too tall. Before MudGear, the problem with crew socks was trying to keep them up during up-and-down ground pounding. Not any more. With careful design and testing, MudGear has complimented the perfect sock height with the perfect amount of compression making MudGear 5" Crew Height Trail Running Socks your new favorite fit!

Best socks ever

These socks are the best socks ever. I put them on first thing in the morning and did not take them off until I went to bed. My feet temperature was well regulated and the socks did not slide in my shoes. They fit really well and I would recommend them to everyone from stay at home moms to OCR racers. I hope they come out with more colors soon!

Great socks!

I usually wear your ankle socks but decided to buy these. They really fit well and kept debris out of the sock and my OCR shoes as well. I love the fact that you are a U.S. company that stands behind your products. I have your shorts, race underwear and compression sock as well. I saw your logo at the Spartan in Jacksonville, last week...good for you guys! If your looking for a brand rep that represents the "almost 60 runners" demographic.., I'm your man. :) Thanks, DeWayne

EPIC GEAR - Always The best of the best

I wear nothing but mudgear on the my feet. From the no show socks and 1/4 crew up to the crew height and tall compression socks. I own every flavor in almost every color. They are all I wear, and have been wearing for almost five years. Take it from me - these socks and their race apparel are the best out there. Thank you MUDGEAR!!

Best socks for OCR, trail, running, whatever

I love the mudgear socks. I’ve worn the tall compression, ruck and ankle mudgear socks. I love that they don’t slip down. Ever. And the cushion around my foot is amazing. Even through a pond 3+hour race.
