The full length MudGear Compression Obstacle Race sock is a tribute to the nasty gashes suffered by OCR racers at the hands of long rope traverses and painful slides across rusty metal poles. This is the only compression sock we know about that is built with a layer of padding on the lower leg and calf that protects from rope burn and other injuries. We think they are simply the world's best mud run socks.
The difference comes from 168 needlepoint compression construction with a tougher yard that provides good compression with superior abrasion resistance compared to gym quality compression socks and sleeves. The back of the calf features an extra layer of protection that still drains well and remains light for long distance courses.
"I normally wear the regular high compression calf sleeves while racing/training, so trying a full sock took a bit of getting used to, but once I did I couldn’t have been happier. The compression on the socks was just the right amount I needed for getting through the races I was able to wear them in, and they performed as well as the ¼ crew socks with the exact same feel and performance in training as well. These compression socks were a treat to wear due to the soft fabric, the right amount of spandex for support, as well as the necessary compression needed for the rough terrain. They also provided excellent upper arch support, with firm support overall for all areas of the foot. But the main feature I loved on the compression socks was the extra layer of padding in the back side of the socks to protect your legs from possible ‘rope burn’ or ‘pole rub’ while doing your various obstacles in the OCR races. This is a fantastic feature and could really benefit racers that use their legs for their main support on the rope traverse, or while sliding down those long poles that may have some rough areas. The design of these compression socks was a well thought out process, and the finished product couldn’t display this any better."

MudGear Trail Socks 1/4 Crew
- High quarter ankle built to keep out dirt from the trail
- Superior handling of water and mud
- Long lasting comfort
Top outdoor athletes know that choosing the right gear is critical to maximizing performance. Those looking to gain a competitive edge require gear built specifically to handle the toughest conditions of their sport. These tough mud run socks excel on the open trail, in mud runs, obstacle courses and adventure races.
The MudGear 1/4 Crew Trail Sock was custom designed by accomplished footwear craftsman Nate Banks. Nate has designed footwear for several top sports brands and recently brought that expertise back to the family business in Hickory, North Carolina. Nate was drawn to the challenge of designing a sock for a sport that includes long miles and full submersion. The result is a strongly functional trail sock with exciting performance features.
The first thing you will notice about these socks is the relatively high ankle that is tight enough to keep out dirt and rocks, but is 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. There is good ventilation on the lower arch and upper foot for air flow and to help with drainage. The sock wears comfortably despite being built to shed water quickly.
"These socks were right up my alley and performed great. They have a good snug fit while not being overly tight and the 1/4 crew is a nice length for racing on trails. Another thing that struck me as nice was that they were padded just enough on the bottom without holding too much water. It is a very fine balance that socks need to strike to have padding while not holding water and they achieved it."

"I am not a racer that normally is very picky about socks, with the only rule I insist on is that my socks are not cotton only. But after wearing these very specifically designed socks, I think I am going to be much more detailed in my sock choices for racing in the future. The padding and drainage in the footbed is outstanding, and the socks have just enough spandex support that they do not slip at all when dry or wet. The idea of a higher ankle collar is a smart choice for OCR racers, and pairing that with ventilation and strong seams throughout the socks provided me with the best road and trail feel I have had in a pair of racing socks. The socks did not slip or move during training, nor during racing. They provided the highest level of comfort I have experienced in a running sock. They never felt weighed down with water and did not ever have the feel of a wet sock, but actually kept a softer feel the whole time my feet were around or under water."
