Grand Canyon Socks by Sara Elizabeth Schmidt


The Grand Canyon is one of the seven natural wonders of the world, and the only one in the United States. Carved by the Colorado River over the course of at least 17 million years, it measures 18 miles at its widest, and its deepest point is over a mile below the surface. For 277 miles, its buttes and crags provide an awe-inspiring natural color show.

Designer Sara Elizabeth Schmidt took inspiration from the canyon to create these beautiful socks. With their warm colorway and a design that flows together and apart, the socks pay tribute to the changing textures of the canyon surfaces. ¡Qué hermosos!
