The Crocs brand, makers of the polarizing lightweight clog often sported by restaurant staffers, hospital workers and rapper Post Malone, announced Thursday that they are providing free footwear to health-care workers helping to combat the coronavirus in the US.

The company, which launched the program "A Free Pair for Healthcare" on Wednesday, looks to donate 10,000 Crocs a day to those who work in the medical field.

Once that number of orders has been reached, a notification advises visitors to return the next day and try again. The shoes, which are made from a rubber-like molded polymer resin, generally boast breathable cut-outs strategically placed across the forefoot.

"Like everyone, we've been closely monitoring the news and working hard to map out a way to most effectively help where we can", shared Crocs President and CEO Andrew Rees.

The duration of our giveaway will depend on our level of inventory and the amount of requests we receive.

"Now and always, we need to take care of each other". Crocs says it can ship up to 10,000 pairs each day, so if the company has already met its limit when you check, head back to the website at 12 p.m. ET the following day to try again.

Many companies have been stepping up to help those serving on the front-lines.

Closer to home, local labels Hedley & Bennett and Citizens of Humanity are among the brands turning their attention to creating face masks for members of the medical community.
