Crocs wants healthcare workers to nurse their overworked feet.
The brand synonymous with the bulky, robbery clogs that have become a staple for many caregivers who spend long hours standing or running around on the job is bringing back its annual National Nurses Week promo to give healthcare workers a free pair of its shoes. And this year, it’s teaming up with Figs
to share free scrubs, too.
announced its third annual “Free Pair for Healthcare” program on National Nurses Day on Friday. The promo will give away 10,000 pairs of Crocs shoes and 10,000 pairs of Figs scrubs to caregivers across the U.S. via online drawings held throughout National Nurses Week, which runs May 6-12. Figs is also offering 20% off of everything on its site through the end of Nurses Week.
The footwear brand said that it launched the program in 2020 as a direct response to requests from caregivers and frontline workers looking for comfortable shoes at the beginning of the pandemic. And the company said it has donated almost 1 million pairs of shoes to healthcare workers around the world since March 2020.
Crocs CEO Andrew Rees said in a statement that the company has been “humbled” by the positive response to its “Free Pair for Healthcare” program over the past two years. “As a values-driven organization, providing comfort for our communities is the foundation of how we think about brand purpose and this program continues to highlight that doing the right thing will always be the right thing for Crocs,” he said.
Heather Hasson and Trina Spear, the co-founders and CEOs of Figs, added that healthcare workers deserve recognition and thanks “now, more than ever.”
