THE HEAD & HEART OF HIKING
When others say, “Get lost,” we say, “Our pleasure.” When they say, “Take a hike,” we say, “On our way!” That's the tradition of the original pathfinders - to whom we pay homage with a whole new class of MudGear.
There’s nothing like exploring an unmarked trail, hiking alongside a winding river, or trekking up a rocky stairway to the heavens. These are sites you’ll only experience on your own two feet. So, take care of your stems with our gift to the great outdoors - MudGear Hiking / Trekking Socks.
BUILT TO EXPLORE
You can settle for any old socks if you’re carefully walking less than a mile on cushioned flat land in perfect weather; but that’s not why you’re here. Is it? You know that MudGear never builds socks that are only perfect in perfect conditions. MudGear Hiking / Trekking Socks are designed to provide premium arch and ankle support for off-road (maybe off-trail) terrain over regularly ascending / descending elevation. Our moisture-wicking blend of premium poly-spandex yarns is strategically placed to prevent hot spots and blisters. These socks don’t retain water, and they drain quickly after trekking through puddles and creek beds. The end result is sheer comfort that makes getting there MORE than “half the fun.”
MEET IN THE MIDDLE
MudGear Hiking / Trekking Socks are among our first CREW height socks. That’s a mid-height sock rising to the bottom of the calf. They’re built with the same durability as our signature tall compression socks and the lasting comfort of our popular short trail and no-show socks. So, why go crew?
Even when you think you’re trekking uncharted territory, there are probably some creepy crawlies that found it first. Insects like hiding on your hiking path almost as much as they love your ankles. Fortunately, MudGear Hiking / Trekking Socks fit high enough and have the perfect amount of compression to protect against bugs, twigs, scratchy thorns, and poison ivy while remaining comfortable over long trips. While they offer more surface protection than shorter socks, crew height socks are admittedly easier to put on and take off than our tall compression socks.
THE “TAKE A HIKE” GUARANTEE
Runners and racers know about MudGear’s 25,000 Mile Warranty, but how does that translate into hiking where most miles are under the added strain of weighted gear and unstable terrain? No difference. Our “Take A Hike” Guarantee means you should always be equipped for your next adventure. If you undergo any adventure that your MudGear socks fail to withstand, we’ll replace them with a pair that can.
BUILT FOR UNKNOWN ADVENTURE
Off-road exploration is fun, but it’s only relaxing in the most adventurous sense of the word! Let’s be honest. You have to work hard to live this free. That’s why MudGear Hiking/Trekking Socks are crew height with respect to the elements and MADE TOUGHER for trekking weighted miles over rugged wet or dry terrain. Take a hike!
Great socks for OCR!
Just did a 33 mile Spartan Ultrabeast in these socks. They were amazingly comfortable, and breathed and drained really well. Never got a Hotspot never got a blister. After cleaning they look brand new again.
Great Trail Sock!
Wore these on a 20 mile trail run the other day through lots of water and mud. They have a comfortable, snug fit and the height provides just enough protection without being too hot or uncomfortable. This is my new go-to for trails.
