The full length MudGear Compression Obstacle Race sock is a tribute to the nasty gashes suffered by OCR racers at the hands of long rope traverses and painful slides across rusty metal poles. This is the only compression sock we know about that is built with a layer of padding on the lower leg and calf that protects from rope burn and other injuries. We think they are simply the world's best mud run socks.
The difference comes from 168 needlepoint compression construction with a tougher yard that provides good compression with superior abrasion resistance compared to gym quality compression socks and sleeves. The back of the calf features an extra layer of protection that still drains well and remains light for long distance courses.
"I normally wear the regular high compression calf sleeves while racing/training, so trying a full sock took a bit of getting used to, but once I did I couldn’t have been happier. The compression on the socks was just the right amount I needed for getting through the races I was able to wear them in, and they performed as well as the ¼ crew socks with the exact same feel and performance in training as well. These compression socks were a treat to wear due to the soft fabric, the right amount of spandex for support, as well as the necessary compression needed for the rough terrain. They also provided excellent upper arch support, with firm support overall for all areas of the foot. But the main feature I loved on the compression socks was the extra layer of padding in the back side of the socks to protect your legs from possible ‘rope burn’ or ‘pole rub’ while doing your various obstacles in the OCR races. This is a fantastic feature and could really benefit racers that use their legs for their main support on the rope traverse, or while sliding down those long poles that may have some rough areas. The design of these compression socks was a well thought out process, and the finished product couldn’t display this any better." - Michael Matter, Mud and Adventure
