If you find yourself inside a US emergency room, you will notice that most doctors, nurses and aids wear Crocs. The manufacturer of this perfect hospital shoe choice has announced their new program to donate 10,000 pairs a day to healthcare workers that are front lining the battle against the novel coronavirus.
Crocs CEO Andrew Rees said that, “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 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.”
These Crocs (Crox) shoes are made out of folded polymer resin, which is a rubber-like substance. They are easily washed and waterproof, which makes it perfect for people who work within special precautions due to the rapid spread of the virus.
Crocs also announced that they are delivering some of their shipments straight to hospitals and other facilities, but that workers also have the option to sign up for free shoes by signing up in their website,. They will continue donating to healthcare providers until supplies last.
Rees included that:
“The duration of our giveaway will depend on our level of inventory and the amount of requests we receive. These workers have our deepest respect, and we are humbled to be able to answer their call and provide whatever we can to help during this unprecedented time.”
