Crocs sending free pair of shoes to healthcare workers

It's a new program called "A Free Pair for Healthcare", that allows the company to donate a free pair of comfortable shoes, with free shipping to those who need it the most.

If you step foot into a hospital and glace at health care workers' attire you will see two things in common: scrubs and Crocs or similar shoes.

Crocs President and CEO Andrew Rees told FOX31 and Channel 2 that Crocs had received requests for shoes from healthcare workers as they need shoes that are easy to remove and clean.

The Crocs brand, makers of the polarizing lightweight clog often sported by restaurant staffers, hospital workers and rapper Post Malone, announced Thursday that they are providing free footwear to health-care workers helping to combat the coronavirus in the US. They are planning to launch the daily limits at noon until they give out as many pairs as possible.

The duration of our giveaway will depend on our level of inventory and the amount of requests we receive.


The brand's mission of "be comfortable in your own shoes" is more relevant now than ever as the healthcare industry has embraced Crocs' shoes due to their comfort and durability during long shifts.

From 12 p.m. ET each day, 10,000 new pairs will be offered on its site; this will continue until stocks last.

Starbucks is also spreading some love to healthcare workers, paramedics, officers, and firefighters with free coffee until May 3.

Currently, over 400,000 people are in line for free shoes. Around the world, there is a shortage of personal protective gear that will keep these workers safe as they care for patients in COVID-19 wards.
