MEET IN THE MIDDLE
We’ve heard story after story from customers reminiscing about their first Spartan race. They showed up thinking “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 Spartans 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 our Crew Height 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 1/4 Crew Socks. 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 race-ready durability and everyday comfort you won’t find from lesser brands.
HOW DO WE DO IT
Every aspect of our socks are deliberate. The foot bed 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 ruggedly handsome design, SPARTAN by MudGear Crew Height Socks pop hard in those end of race fire jump photos.
THIS FIT IS A HIT
We’ve received incredible feedback about how these socks fit. They’re high and tight enough to keep out dirt and rocks from Spartan trails but comfortable for putting in Ultra 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, SPARTAN by MudGear Crew Height Socks serve as lower shin guards but without any added pressure on your calves.
Crew height accommodates the masses. Spartan racers 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 once they're caked with mud or 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 SPARTAN by MudGear Crew Height Socks your new favorite fit!
