"Like everyone, we've been closely monitoring the news and working hard to map out a way to most effectively help where we can".
The brand's mission of "be comfortable in your own shoes" is more relevant now than ever as the healthcare industry has embraced Crocs' shoes due to their comfort and durability during long shifts.
The "A Free Pair for Healthcare" program lets doctors, nurses and other medical employees choose one free pair of Crocs Classic Clogs or Crocs At Work styles. It's a real concern. Crocs now has 400,000 people in line for a free pair.
If you're a healthcare professional and you'd like to request a free pair of Crocs shoes, head to their website at 12 p.m. ET.
Crocs' molded-resin fabrication makes them easy to clean, a fact that has made them popular with healthcare workers. The company says it is prepared to ship 10,000 shoes a day, and will donate 100,000 of them in total.
Even as the novel coronavirus outbreak continues to claim lives and wreak havoc on global economies and healthcare systems, several individuals and organisations have come forth to offer help.
Crocs also has a range of medical footwear designed specifically for those who work in healthcare and hospitality.
"Now and always, we need to take care of each other".
The rubber-like waterproof shoe can be easily washed off and is an attractive option for people working in fast-paced environments that require you to be on your feet for long periods of time, like hospitals.
