Our healthcare workers are on the front lines working hard to keep us safe, not just during these uncertain times right now but every single day. To show their appreciation, Crocs is giving away one free pair of shoes to every medical worker who is out there helping in the battle against coronavirus.
The “Sharing a Pair for Healthcare” campaign lets nurses, doctors, and other medical workers get a free pair of Crocs Classic Clogs or Crocs At Work shoes. These are normally $40-$60 retail.

And sending free shoes to our frontline heroes in healthcare. Visit our link in bio to request your pair. A very special thanks to our partners @shoecarnival @famousfootwear & @myrackroomshoes for making these donations possible. #CrocsCares?
Crocs have long been a popular footwear choice for those in healthcare as the all-foam shoes are very comfortable (healthcare workers are on their feet all day) and stain-resistant to the various bodily fluids workers often encounter on the job.
“Like everyone, we’ve been closely monitoring the news and working hard to map out a way to most effectively help where we can,” said Andrew Rees, president and CEO of Crocs. “Over the past week, we have spoken to health care workers, their facilities and even their family and friends, and they have specifically asked for our shoes in an effort to provide ease on their feet, as well as ease of mind as they need the ability to easily clean up before they go home to their families.”
If you’re a healthcare worker, you can claim your free pair of shoes on the Crocs website. To manage demand, the company is only accepting 10,000 requests each day, starting at 11 am Central Time, so make sure you “get in line” on time to get yours as quickly as possible.
Additionally, the company will be sending 100,000 pairs of shoes to hospitals all across the country to be handed out directly to employees.
