Nike is donating 30,000 pairs of shoes to health systems and hospitals in cities across the United States, specifically designed for healthcare workers.
The Air Zoom Pulse released in November 2019 is the “first shoe designed for the healthcare athlete, an everyday hero” of the company, Nike said in her announcement.
To study those in the profession, Nike went to OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland, Oregon. They’ve been studying their challenges including their shift and long standing hours.
The shoes will be distributed to healthcare workers in Chicago, Los Angles, New York City and Memphis and within the Veterans Health Administration, in partnership with Good360, a non-profit specializing in the efficient distribution of product donations.
Nike said they’ll also give some 95,000 pairs of soccer socks to healthcare workers in New York City and Los Angeles that could offer mild compression.
“The effort is led by messages of gratitude to healthcare professionals,” Nike said. “From one athlete to another, Nike athletes recognize the physical and mental resilience of healthcare athletes.”
May more companies work hand in hand to help the entire world fight this pandemic.
