Designed by footwear specialist Nate Banks
The MudGear 1/4 Crew Trail Sock was custom designed by the experienced shoemaker Nate Banks. Nate has designed shoes for various top sports brands and has recently brought that expertise back to the family business in Hickory, North Carolina.
Nate was out to design a sock for a sport with long kilometers and full immersion. The result is a highly functional trail sock with exciting performance characteristics.
Tight enough to keep dirt and stones out, but it has no compression
The first thing you notice about these socks is the relatively high ankle that is tight enough to hold back dirt and stones, but that is not tight. The footbed is soft and padded but not thick in a way that absorbs water and retains mud.
There is good ventilation on the lower arch and the upper foot for the airflow and to help with the drain. The sock is comfortable to wear despite the fact that it is built to release water quickly.
The MudGear 1/4 Crew Trail Sock is made in the USA.
