Socks, service, and the Special Olympics is the mission of John’s Crazy Socks.

Co-founder John Cronin turned his love for colorful, fun, and creative socks into an online store and a way to give back to the Special Olympics. 

Cronin, a young man with Down Syndrome, teamed up with father to create the online store. Cronin and his father seek socks that will make a difference, that will make customers smile or laugh, that will tug at your heart, and add some zest to your life. 

Cronin gives back the community by donating a portion of the store’s proceeds to the Special Olympics. He is a long-time Special Olympics athlete and gives five percent of each purchase from his store to the sports organization.
