John Cronin Delivers Custom Socks to King Quality

We love to make custom socks and there is nothing better than to see the smile on a customer’s face when they see their custom socks for the first time. Yesterday, John Cronin, co-founder of John’s Crazy Socks, delivered two sets of custom socks that we made for Jeff Brett and the team at King Quality, the region’s largest home remodeling company. The smile on Jeff’s face made John’s day.

“I knew these socks were going to be great,” said Jeff, “but these are awesome. I love these socks.” And he gave John a big hug. 

John said, “We loved making these socks for you.” Then John went around the King Quality office handing out socks. People responded with oohs and aahs.

John’s Crazy Socks made two different designs for King Quality, one of which has Jeff’s picture on it wearing a crown. 

John, together with his co-founder and father, Mark X. Cronin, often make personal deliveries of custom socks. Mark said, “One of our core pillars is to make it personal. If a customer lives nearby, we will do our best to hand-deliver the custom socks and thank our customers. 

John said, “We have a mission to spread happiness and I love to see how happy the custom socks make people.”

Why Custom Socks from John’s Crazy Socks? 

Companies are overrun with promotional items: pens, coffee cups, t-shirts, and the like. As one customer put it, “We’re so tired of the same old stuff.” 

Socks are different. People smile when they get their socks. And they wear them. Every time they pull on your pair of socks, they think of you and they feel good. That’s why custom socks from John’s Crazy Socks make great gifts. 

“People are going to love these socks,” said Jeff Brett. “We can’t wait to start handing them out.” 

Custom sock designs for King Quality

Mark X. Cronin, said, “You get so much more than just custom socks when you order from us. The socks are great – after all, we have over 30,000 five-star reviews – and we make the design process so easy. People have a lot of fun coming up with great designs. Each purchase helps us employ people with differing abilities – more than half our workforce has a differing ability – and you help us give back. At John’s Crazy Socks, we pledge five percent of earnings to the Special Olympics and raise money for charity partners like the Autism Society of America, the National Down Syndrome Society and United Cerebral Palsy. With our custom socks, you’ll be spreading happiness. When people wear the custom socks, they talk about your business and connect that to telling the story of John’s Crazy Socks.” 

Making Custom Socks for King Quality 

John met Jeff Brett in the spring and they became fast friends. Jeff, John, and Mark filmed a joint television commercial thanks to a grant from King Quality and support from Altice USA. 

“We were thrilled to make socks for Jeff and King Quality,” said John. 

The folks at King Quality suggested some design ideas and the John’s Crazy Socks team got to work. “They made everything so easy,” said Jeff, “And look how great the socks turned out.” 

Making custom socks is a growing part of the business for John’s Crazy Socks. Mark X. Cronin said, “We’ve made them for large companies (Microsoft, Allianz, Voya Financial, Google and more) as well as small businesses, lawyers, doctors, and accountants. We’ve made them for charities (e.g., Special Olympics, Best Buddies, Parent-Teacher Organizations, etc.) that have used the socks to raise money. And we’ve made them for private events like weddings and sweet sixteen parties.
