Founded by entrepreneur, Mike Haugen in the midst of the pandemic, The Suburban is on a mission to provide people with affordable designer sneakers that match the complexities of the evolving market of the world.
“I wanted to make it available to everyone, both rich and poor alike, to be able to afford and experience designer sneakers without overcharging our customers. When you shop with us, we make sure that you only pay for what you get, and not anything in between. By choosing The Suburban, you are choosing to be a part of this mission.”
With a rising number of so-called scammers in the market, it is a struggle for startups to break through in a well-established industry. The Suburban seems to have been able to poke a hole in the fashion industry bubble, proving that people don’t have to go broke to wear handmade footwear that is professionally designed.
