Nike is thanking healthcare workers around the world by donating 140,000 pieces of footwear, apparel and equipment amid the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
With the help of professional athletes including Joshua Buatsi, Cristina Chirichella, Casey Short and Amandine Henry — announced it partnered with nonprofit Good360 to distribute 30,000 pairs of Nike Air Zoom Pulse sneakers to health care systems and hospitals in major citifies across the US.
“An additional 2,500 pairs are being donated to hospitals across Europe, including Barcelona, Berlin, London, Milan, Paris and in Belgium,” the brand said in a statement.
Launched in December before the coronavirus outbreak, the cushioned Air Zoom Pulse was designed specifically for healthcare workers. The laceless sneaker, marked as the “shoe for everyday heroes,” can withstand hospital conditions and is easy to slip on and off.
“One can think of the Air Zoom Pulse as almost a traditional clog made athletic — all the arch and posture support of that industry favorite is augmented in the Pulse, with a smooth capacity for natural motion,” the brand said in a November release.
In addition to donating comfortable shoes, “approximately 95,000 pairs of soccer socks offering mild compression will also be delivered through Good360 for healthcare workers in Los Angeles and New York City,” Nike said on Monday. “Across Europe, Nike has donated nearly 4,000 pairs of shoes and more than 3,500 pieces of sweat-wicking Dri-FIT apparel to more than a dozen hospitals and shelters.”
