Companion Sock to Steampunkery
Given the less refined life of the Edisonade, this sock has a more durable heel and fewer buttons (we still need buttons!) than the Steampunkery socks.

Edisonade-a genre of science fiction and adventure fiction featuring a brilliant robust inventor, engineer or scientist hero who has an adventure in the wilds of the world, created from the mid-19th century to early 20th century, mostly American. Coined after Thomas Edison.
Think Dime Novels and Penny Dreadfuls!

“It is an Edisonade, a paradigm kind of science fiction in which a brave young inventor creates a tool or a weapon (or both) that enables him to save the girl and his nation (America) and the world from some menace, whether it be foreigners or evil scientists or aliens; and gets the girl; and gets rich.” John Clute, Yore Is Us
