Our goal has always been to keep people comfortable in their shoes, and now, in the face of adversity, some specific individuals need that feeling more than ever.
Crocs are donating a free pair of shoes (with free shipping) to healthcare workers on the frontlines of COVID-19.
If you’re a healthcare professional in need of our easy-to-clean, comfortable Crocs shoes, we’ve got you taken care of.
CEO Andrew Rees said, “Over the past week, we have spoken to healthcare workers, their facilities and even their family and friends, and they have specifically asked for our shoes to provide ease on their feet, as well as ease of mind as they need the ability to clean up before they go home to their families easily.”
Crocs are made of a molded polymer resin that is a rubber-like. They are also waterproof and could easily be cleaned, which is why these are high shoes for those being cautious of the novel coronavirus.
Crocs announced that it is shipping directly to the hospitals and facilities, but they should sign up to be able to receive those free shoes at www.crocs.com/freeforhealthcare. The company said that they would be donating as long as supplies are there.

The CEO also added, “We only have one ask: Share the word to all those in healthcare and please be mindful of allowing those who need these most to place their requests. This is the least we can do for those working incredibly hard to defeat this virus.”
