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.
Mud gear socks
Great product !
Great product and great customer service. I will be back for more. Cheers
Great Socks. Great service.
These socks are fantastic. They have great compression while having a soft fabric for the heel and base of the sock. Most compression socks create blisters if you try and walk in them. These are great for recovery or a marathon. Great all around.
Worth every penny
Fantastic socks. I used them during a Spartan Super. They especially came in handy during the rope climb. 5 stars, would recommend.
Excellent Compression Sox
Great for any run, especially distance. Will definitely look forward to seeing how they hold up going forward, but so far so good.
Fits great and performs well.
These are really superior, feel great, and DO THE JOB!!
the only socks you’ll need at OCR races
just an awesome pair of socks. and not just an ordinary socks but an armor to protect your legs from doing OCR races. no more rope burns for me doing rope climbs and tyrolean traverse at spartan race. a must have when racing. highly recommended. get yourself a pair. you’ll thank me later. aroooo!!!
