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.
They are a little tough to get on, but they’re compression socks. They’re meant to be tight. I think I completed 3 maybe 4 Tough Mudder races in them and I never had an issue with them. Held up well. Seams ripped a little trying to get them on for my next race, but they should be fine for one more.
High quality product with great customer service. I purchased a pair of socks that had I minor defect in the stitching in the heel causing a small hole. I contacted their support team to let them know and they responded quickly and had another pair on the way. They told me to keep the ones I had also so I having been using both and no issues with either. I would highly recommend
Absolutely love how well these are made. Extremely comfortable and provide great compression. I am using these in my hockey skates instead of sport specific socks I have been buying which keep falling apart, so it’s really nice to have something with a lot more durability.
Mug gear compression socks
Best in the industry. I wear them to every Tough Mudder event I go to…which is many. They keep my feet and calf’s comfy and ready to take on all obstacles
These compression socks work great for my long trails runs. They're really comfortable, well-designed and effective!
Great socks!!!! Totally recommend
Definitely worth getting these for for any kinds of use. Well made and if any issues they stand behind their product and make it right. I like them so much and how they took care of me, I bought more.
This company has gone above and beyond! taking care of returns and added items to a previous order without question or hesitation and did it quickly before our mud run! Great Job!
Tough enough for construction workers
I work construction and have been diagnosed with chronic DVT. I was looking for tough but comfortable compression socks that will hold up while wearing work boots. I found your product and gave them a try. Super comfortable in shoes or work boots and should hold up under hard usage for a long time
