In the American Midwest, the line between suburb and prairie can sometimes blur. There is a comfortable sort of dichotomy in having every modern convenience available while still having wide open spaces close at hand. It’s a wonderful thing, appreciating that contrast while straddling the line.

The Suburban Prairie Socks have a similar contrast in their features with a lace-paneled front and a plainer back of twisted rib detailing that extends onto the heel flap. Also featured is a rounded toe to allow for a bit of extra room in that area.
