Over the past 15 months, health care professionals have worked relentlessly to keep the world safe from COVID-19. Now, Crocs is giving back to the medical heroes that work tirelessly on their feet.

The popular rubber shoe company announced on Friday that they are bringing back its "Free Pair for Healthcare" program in honor of National Nurses Week.

“In 2020, Crocs donated over 860,000 free pairs of shoes to healthcare workers on the frontlines of COVID-19,” the company website states. “Now, just one year later, there’s no better way to say thank you than by doing it all over again.”

The company plans to give away 10,000 pairs of its Crocs At Work shoes per day to frontline caregivers in the United States between Monday, May 10 and Friday, May 14. The website will begin taking requests at 12 p.m. ET and will remain open until that day’s maximum has been reached.

The initiative first began last year as a way to recognize medial professional for their efforts in the battle against the coronavirus pandemic.

The special work-shoe design aims to “eliminate the stress of finding comfortable work shoes” for healthcare professionals. The shoes are available to doctors, nurses and other medical staffers to choose between Crocs Classic Clogs and Crocs At Work styles.

The shoes come in a variety of different colors, including black, red, blue, white, and even tie-dye. Each pair originally retails for around $35 to $60.
