Crocs to give away 50,000 pairs of shoes to health care workers on National Nurses Week



  • Crocs will give away 50,000 free pairs of shoes to health care workers.
  • The event will occur during National Nurses Week which runs from May 10 until May 14.
  • The footwear company donated 860,000 pairs of shoes to frontline workers during lockdowns last year.

Crocs wants to make sure health care workers are comfortable and in style while continuing to help fight the pandemic. The footwear company will give away 50,000 pairs of shoes during National Nurses Week for their “Free Pair for Healthcare.”

Crocs will give away 10,000 free pairs of shoes a day for five days beginning May 10 through May 14. Health care workers can request a pair starting at 12 p.m. ET on Monday up until the day’s free pair allotment has been fulfilled.

“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 a press release. 

Last year, Crocs donated more than 860,000 free pairs of Crocs to health care workers during lockdowns.

“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.

Crocs’ initiative is only one of many giveaways frontline workers receive since the beginning of the pandemic.

Last month, celebrities like Melissa McCarthy, Octavia Spencer, Ben Falcone, Joel McHale, Aimee Carpenter and Leslee Feldman teamed up with Frontline Foods to order food from struggling restaurants to be delivered to hospitals and health care facilities.

In January, rapper Post Malone partnered with Musicians on Call to donate 10,000 pairs of his new line of Crocs to frontline workers. 

“So grateful for @PostMalone & @Crocs support so @musiciansoncall can provide frontline caregivers with some fresh kicks to show our love for all they do,” Musicians on Call CEO Pete Griffin tweeted.
