The Air Zoom Pulse design features a specially cushioned sole for a laceless sneaker that can withstand hospital conditions that are easy to slip on and off. This design is an athletic version of the classic clog used by healthcare workers that offers posture and arch support with a “smooth capacity for natural motion” according to a Nike release statement.

Nike will also be donating 95,000 pairs of soccer socks that offer mild compression for healthcare workers in New York City and Los Angeles. They also donated 3,500 pieces of sweat-wicking Dri-FIT apparel and 4,000 pairs of shoes to more than a dozen sheets and hospitals across Europe.
