Top athletes know that gear choices are critical to maximizing performance. Those looking to gain a competitive edge require gear built specifically to handle the toughest conditions of their sport.
MudGear trail socks are built for the competitive outdoor athlete. They 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 Under Armour and New Balance and recently brought that expertise back to the family business, The Sock Factory 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 dirt and rocks out but 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.
"I will one hundred percent endorse these going forward. With the brutal conditions on race day, my feet never felt cold or heavy the entire time. I will for sure wear these for all mud runs going forward" - F3 John "Cindy" Crawford after a Spartan elite heat top 10 finish
The MudGear 1/4 Crew Trail Sock is made in the USA.
