Healthcare workers can now get a free pair of Crocs
Crocs has said that all healthcare workers in the United States who are helping in the fight against the coronavirus outbreak can now get a free pair of Crocs.
Announcing the move on Instagram, Crocs said that healthcare employees could all do with an extra pair of easy-to-clean, comfortable shoes.
"We're sharing a free pair for healthcare," the message in the post reads. "Our goal has always been to keep people comfortable in their own shoes and now, in the face of adversity, there are certain individuals who need that feeling more than ever."
Crocs then explains that it will be donating a free pair of shoes including free shipping to healthcare workers "on the frontlines of COVID-19", adding that "if you're a healthcare professional in need of our easy-to-clean, comfortable Croc shoes, we've got you taken care of."
In the caption for the post, the footwear giant explains that it had reached its "daily free pair limit" due to "extremely high volume".This nurse was in tears because panic-buyers stopped her from being able to buy food after her 48-hour shift:
The company then advises those in healthcare to check back for availability every day at 12 p.m. ET in order to get their hands on a well-deserved pair of Crocs shoes.
"Now and always, we need to take care of each other," it adds. "Sending love to you, #CrocNation. And sending free shoes to our frontline heroes in healthcare."
This comes days after Crocs dedicated a special Instagram post to healthcare workers who are doing their best to control the spread of COVID-19.
"To Our Friends in Healthcare," the company wrote in the caption. "We want to thank you for everything you do, day in and day out, but even more so in these difficult times. Your compassion and selfless care for the people around you is more appreciated than you may know or feel. A special thanks to @drjcofthedc for always inspiring his patients and us, with his amazing energy and positivity."
Crocs CEO Andrew Rees said per CNN that healthcare workers have "specifically asked" for Crocs clogs as they provide comfort and are to easy to clean.
