Designed by footwear specialist Nate Banks
The MudGear 1/4 Crew Trail Sock was custom-designed by experienced shoe-maker Nate Banks. Nate has designed shoes for various top-level sports brands and recently brought this expertise back to the family business in Hickory, North Carolina.
Nate was looking to design a sock for a sport with long mileage and complete 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 stop dirt and stones, but that is not tight. The footbed is soft and padded but not thick in a way that absorbs water and holds mud.
There is good ventilation on the lower arch and the upper foot for the airflow and to help with the drainage. The sock is comfortable despite the fact that it is built to give water quickly.
The MudGear 1/4 Crew Trail Sock is made in the USA.
