Crocs is celebrating healthcare workers who wear its shoes to work each day.
In honor of National Nurses Week – which began May 6 and ends May 12 – the footwear company is giving away 50,000 pairs of its signature slip-on shoes to “healthcare heroes.”
The company previously gave more than 860,000 shoes to nurses at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.
Crocs says it will give 10,000 more pairs each day on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. There weren’t any leftover pairs of shoes from Monday’s donation drop, according to the company’s website.
The free shoes are available starting at 12 p.m. EST until supplies run out, according to Crocs, and recipients do not have to pay for shipping. The brand doesn’t specify what styles of shoes it’s giving away for the promotion. Its clogs and slip-ons come in a variety of patterns and colors, from tie-dye to animal print.
In a press release sent to Insider, Crocs said its “Free Pair for Healthcare” donation effort was created “in direct response to requests from Crocs fans and healthcare workers.”
After donating more than $40 million worth of shoes last year, the company says there’s “no better way to say thank you than by doing it all over again.”
“We are thrilled to bring back our ‘Free Pair for Healthcare’ program and celebrate our frontline healthcare heroes who have worked harder than ever before to provide comfort in our communities over the past year,” Crocs CEO Andrew Rees said in the press release.
“Last year’s program reinforced for our brand that doing the right thing is the right thing for Crocs, and we are honored to be able to take this moment to once again provide our shoes, this time as a thank you for the incredible work these individuals do each and every day,” Rees continued.
