Crocs is giving away 10,000 pairs of shoes a day to health care heroes


(NEW YORK) — It’s been over a year since the coronavirus pandemic shut down the world, and medical professionals continue to show up and help those in need.

That’s a huge part of the reason why Crocs is bringing back its “Free Pair for Healthcare program,” which recognizes and provides comfort to health care heroes who have been on fighting on the front lines.

On May 10, the shoe brand known for its comfortable foam clogs, is kicking off National Nurses Week with plans to give away 10,000 pairs of Crocs at Work™ shoes per day to front-line caregivers in the United States.

Starting at noon ET, the Crocs website will begin accepting requests and will remain open until that day’s free pair allotment is fulfilled.

To date, Crocs has donated over 860,000 pairs of shoes globally (valued at $40 million) to health care workers fighting the battle toward putting an end to COVID-19.
