Hush Puppies Gifting 5K Pairs to Grandparents Battling Social Isolation

Experts are concerned about the long-term effects of social isolation for those that were already experiencing loneliness. According to a report by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine, 43 percent of U.S. adults age 60-plus reported feeling lonely—and that’s prior to the global pandemic.

So Hush Puppies, a division of Wolverine Worldwide, has decided to do something about it. Starting today, the comfort brand is offering free pairs (up to 5,000) of its Power Walker shoe, a.k.a. the original #GrandpaStyle sneaker to grandparents nationwide who may be feeling especially lonely right now. Hush Puppies is also giving back locally by gifting 500 pairs of Power Walkers to residents and staff at Clark Retirement Community in its hometown of Grand Rapids, MI. Shipments will be received in accordance with CDC guidelines to ensure a safe delivery.

Visit and enter your email to gift a free pair of Power Walkers to your elderly loved one. Simply pick the preferred color and size, add to cart (promo code will auto-apply) and ship to your grandparent. The offer is valid in the U.S. only and while supplies last.
