Post Malone is donating 10,000 Crocs to frontline workers

avalon-0541026139

In December we talked about the fact that Post Malone was establishing himself as a Croc design genius. His collaborations with the soft clog company have been wildly successful, selling out within hours of being released. So far, he’s launched five collections with who knows how many more to come. Part of Post’s promotion for his lines is to give away several thousands of pairs to fans prior to the shoes official release. At the time of his last launch, I wondered if there might be a reissue of the Post Malone X Crocs Duet Max Clog II, given its popularity. Not yet, but Post did have another giveaway. This time, it was 10,000 pairs and they were all sent to front line workers at 70 different hospitals through the organization Musicians on Call.

Frontline workers across the country are getting their hands on some Crocs many others cannot.

Musicians on Call, an organization which brings live and recorded music to the bedside of patients in health care facilities, has announced that Grammy-nominated artist Post Malone is gifting 10,000 pairs of his sold out Duet Max Clog II Crocs to frontline workers at 70 hospitals across the country.

The nonprofit shared photos of some of the workers with the hard to come by shoes on their social media accounts.

*Insert clap gifs* Ultimately, it’s the comfort of the Croc footwear that’s important because these poor frontline workers are on their feet all freaking day. They received some designer, sold out and frankly, very cute footwear. We should definitely show support for those working in the battle against COVID. It must mean the world to these folks to receive items that they can not only use, but maybe wouldn’t indulge in for themselves. Like with Caroline Benzel and her dog Loki passing out care packages, special treats to make this tragic time a little better. And in the case of Post’s Crocs, it’s a lot more than a little something because no one else can get their hands on them. These pairs were likely being held for something else, probably industry-promotion related, and Post and Crocs made the decision to redirect them to a more worthy recipient – good for them. Post has not responded to requests for comment yet. Everything about COVID sucks, but it’s nice to see who steps up in time of crisis.

Also, this Musicians on Call group sounds amazing.

    This donation is a nice gesture, but I still cannot fully forgive him for performing during a pandemic:

      Hi, progressive, frontline covid ICU and volunteer vaccinator here: Comments like yours are what make people hate liberals. This is a great story and you have to shit on it. Sorry he doesn’t pass your purity test. Maybe he’s making up for past mistakes? Anyway, Crocs are comfy and easy to clean, which is especially important now.

      • jules says:

        Couldn’t agree more @Midge. I’m a frontline healthcare worker, and this was at the beginning of the pandemic, while it was only being monitored, the venue gave him the go ahead and we had no idea what was coming. Let’s just all say “thanks for the crocs and thinking of the frontline workers!!” and call it a day.

        You’re entitled to your opinion. I am entitled to mine. Not sure why my politics or yours are germane to this discussion.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        I agree with you Midge.

        and thank you and Jules for your hard work and dedication.

      • pamspam says:

        I don’t think Bearcat was shitting all over the story. I think two things can be true – this is a great story and great gesture, and there was some bad judgment early on. In any event, I thank you Midge and Jules very much for your service. :)

    That was a beautiful geste. I spent some time in the hospital last year and a lot of the staff were wearing crocs, so it’s something that they really can use (and feel special at the same time).

  4. Wiglet Watcher says:

    This is a solid gesture. I have no complaints

  5. lucy2 says:

    That’s great! Crocs are my “house shoes” because I can’t go barefoot, and they are really comfortable, and washable.

  6. Sillysmoke says:

    I adore Post Malone…seems like a sweet guy. I remember there were stories prior saying he was undergoing some kind of mental health crisis (?) possibly trying to handle the fame. I hope he’s dealing with his issues in a healthy way. And way to go on the donations 😊 stay safe everyone

  7. Case says:

    This is a very nice, tangible thing to donate that I’m sure is greatly appreciated. Good for him!

    This was sweet.
