Nike has partnered with non-profit Good360 to provide 30,000 pairs of sneakers to healthcare workers involved in the fight against COVID-19. Good 360 plans to deliver pairs of its Nike Air Zoom Pulse to workers in Chicago, Los Angeles, Memphis, and New York, according to a press release.
Nike says that this specific shoe is “our first shoe designed for the healthcare athlete, an everyday hero.”
“Our Nike family has come together to serve our communities and support our COVID-19 response efforts in communities around the world,” the company said in the release. “Nike’s leaders, employees, the Nike Foundation, and Nike have committed more than $25 million to these efforts.”
An additional 2,500 pairs will be donated to European hospitals, according to the release.
Nike is also sending 95,000 pairs of mild compression socks to New York and Los Angeles.
