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.
Ran a Spartan beast in these, they help minimize fatigue and cramping so much. I highly recommend these for anyone running OCR or long distances.
Love this sock and hope to get more in different colors. Make it in a solid red please. :)
Spartan tested, Spartan approved!
I ordered these for the Nashville Spartan Sprint last weekend. I typically need to wear compression sleeves for my calves to prevent cramps so I was a little skeptical about going with socks only. There was no need to be skeptical! These socks performed AMAZING! The compression through the calves were perfect and this was the first race that I never had a single cramp. The sock portion was VERY comfortable as well. I already had a small blister going from the Super the day before on the bottom of my foot. These socks protected my foot well and prevented the blister from worsening. I would highly recommend these socks and I plan on buying a few more pair in different colors. Love them!
Only socks I wear for OCR's!
Great product! Great customer service! Great company!
Excellent Compression Socks
These are perfect race socks for OCR running. They protect your shins and look great. Fun and functional socks all in!!!
Stellar socks, worth every penny!
Bought these for a Spartan Race through mud and grass. I genuinely think these helped my stamina and longevity on my legs! Great for circulation and protection from the elements! They arrived three days after ordering too, thankfully because I left town on the fourth day. Winning!! What a great product!!
Bass fishing comfort
Good morning Malko . I just ordered more compression socks and per my previous conversation I find them a must when out on the water fishing all day standing on the deck of a bass boat . They are on my tournament checklist. Please consider some sponsorship discounting and I would be happy to wear the Mud gear colors. Thanks Lloyd raheem
Quality product and amazing company!!
These were sent as a replacement to a pair that I previously bought. I contacted Mudgear about them and they immediately replaced them for free! Top notch customer service to match an amazing product!
