Hemp is actually the “sober cousin” of marijuana. It has a minimal amount of psychoactive components, and for that reason it is legal everywhere in the world. Our team has traveled across Europe, China and the US with our shoes, and all you get is a bunch of excited security officers wanting to take a picture of them.
At 8000Kicks, we spent months traveling the globe looking for the right growers of Hemp to guarantee a premium fabric that was not only strong, flexible, and durable, but also waterproof and dust proof.
Cork is a premium material available in nature. It comes from the cork-oak tree that has been growing for decades in Portugal. Approximately every 9 years, cork oaks grow a thick bark around them that is later collected to be processed.
After collecting the bark from the tree, it is ground and made into flat sheets. The next process is to cut it into molds and add foam for extra cushion. The process takes a few days.
Rubber is an ecological material that comes from the plant commonly known as “Para tree” that grows in South America and southeast Asia. It is collected there and brought all over the world.
But we decided to go the extra mile and actually help clean up what our competitors left behind. We have partnered up with experienced Portuguese outsole experts to create upcycled soles made from old shoes. They are flexible, durable and save the environment at the same time.
