Previous Sock Design Contest Winners 

Last year, the winning design came from Jerome Scriptunas of Freehold, New Jersey who put tree images on a sock. These led to our Plant Trees Athletic Crew Socks. Those socks support our new charity partner, the New York Restoration Project, a nonprofit nature conservancy stewarding parks, community gardens, and green space throughout New York City. 

In 2022, Erin and Bear Bonner designed the Wheels on Fire socks that have become a customer favorite. Those socks support the Viscardi Center. And the 2021 winner, Sierra Sapack, designed ASL I Love You socks using images from American Sign Language and they raise money for the Lexington School for the Deaf. 

About John’s Crazy Socks

Cronin, started the company as a social enterprise with a mission of Spreading Happiness™. With more than 4,000 socks, John’s Crazy Socks is now the world’s largest sock store. More than half their employees have a differing ability, and their Giving Back program has raised over $750,000 for charity partners like the Special Olympics, the National Down Syndrome Society, and the Autism Society of America. Most of all, they are Spreading Happiness™.
