How it all started
Even before Q for Quinn, I would always mismatch my socks, mostly because I could never find matching pairs!
When my son was born, single socks was an even bigger problem as I didn't have enough socks to go around given he was constantly outgrowing them. I would show up to play dates with one sock (as my little one had managed to slip one off) or completely mismatched socks. For some reason I was more embarrassed about his mismatched socks than my own! Maybe because I felt people will be judging me for not having it together....?!??
After several such occasions, it dawned on me: What if there were socks that looked good together even when they don’t match?
Soon after, Q for Quinn was born.
Founder, Q for Quinn
Thoughtfully designed in Toronto, our socks are gender neutral and made to be mismatched.
Through fun, bold prints with compatible patterns and colour schemes, our styles look like they match even when they don’t.
You spend a lot less time spent looking for socks…
…and your child has the freedom to mix and match patterns, giving them an opportunity to explore their uniqueness, embrace their individuality, and create a style of their own.
Q for Quinn socks are made with the softest organic combed cotton and seamless toes for total comfort, no matter how adventurous those little feet get.
Every collection comes with 3 pairs of socks for 9 possible pairings and plenty of fun opportunities to learn about patterns.

Book + Matching Socks
Melita dreamed of creating a learning experience for kids with her socks.
She wanted kids to get excited about their socks and different patterns. She also wanted to encourage kids to create their own individual style by matching and mismatching their socks!
Enter Quinn's Socks, an illustrated children’s storybook featuring Q for Quinn's own sock patterns!
