The Back Story:

In the fall of 2016, a then 22-year-old John Cronin asked his father if they could open a business selling socks. His father Mark agreed. He and John, who has Down Syndrome, started John’s Crazy Socks in December 2016. One of their goals was to show what people with intellectual disabilities like John, could do. A year later, after reading a story about President Bill Clinton giving a pair of colorful socks to President Bush, John Cronin decided to send a box of his company’s socks to President Bush’s office in Houston. That prompted President Bush’s office to reach out in 2017 for additional socks. Cronin sent a pair of Down Syndrome Superhero socks which he designed.

President Bush then sent John Cronin a pair of socks and a letter saying “We knew that people with disabilities like Down Syndrome are capable of doing amazing things if they are given the opportunity. You are a wonderful example of what Americans can do despite the challenges that they face. We are proud of all that you have accomplished.”

The president also wore John’s Down Syndrome Super Hero Socks on World Down Syndrome Day and tweeted about it. He later wore a pair of John’s Crazy Socks to the funeral of his wife, Barbara Bush.
