They are planning to launch the daily limits at noon until they give out as many pairs as possible. Keen is giving away 100,000 pairs, valued at $10 million; Merrell has delivered 1,200 pairs of shoes and boots to Michigan-based health-care workers; and Crocs is offering free styles to health-care workers on its site as well as donating 100,000 pairs in conjunction with select medical facilities and organizations.
The "Free Pair for Healthcare" program will work like this: Every day, at approximately 9 a.m.
Free shipping will also be included.
Once that number of orders has been reached, a notification advises visitors to return the next day and try again.
Crocs (CROX) are made out of a rubber-like molded polymer resin.
"Like everyone, we've been closely monitoring the news and working hard to map out a way to most effectively help where we can", Crocs President and Chief Executive Andrew Rees said Wednesday in announcing the initiative. "If you're a healthcare professional in need of our easy-to-clean, comfortable Crocs shoes, we've got you taken care of".
The duration of our giveaway will depend on our level of inventory and the amount of requests we receive.
"We only have one ask: Share the word to all those in healthcare and please be mindful to allow those who need these most to place their requests". Starting today, Crocs is immediately prepared to fulfill and ship up to 10,000 pairs per day to our heroes in healthcare.
"These are uncharted waters for everyone, and our challenges are dwarfed by those on the front lines", the company wrote in an Instagram post.
