Our hemp has been made to repel water from coming in. We added a proprietary coating layer that protects the fabric and its properties from stains, liquids and dust particles. This will make the fabric very easy to clean as well.
Hemp is also a super durable material, that will make your shoe last years before they wear out.
Weed upper, and algae bottom.
Phenomenons like eutrophication can destroy entire marine ecosystems if not controlled.
We partnered up with Bloom Foam to create a super light algae bottom with increased durability while sponsoring the removal of harmful algae.
Before being banned, in the 60s, Hemp was the main clothing material due to its anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties.
Also, did you know hempcrete (hemp cement) is the "new" high-performance material for home insulation because it is a temperature regulating material?
The cherry on top is the extra foam layer, to guarantee the right mix between hardness and cushioning.

Unfortunately we don't have a warranty because shoes are subject to maximum wear and tear. However, from our experiences both our hemp and our soles have performed very well on our "torture" tests and we can confidently say that they are stronger than any branded sneakers in the same price range. We also tested over 10 types of different glues to find a perfect fit that would survive under the harshest conditions.
However, if for some accident or problem our shoes do not perform as expected, please contact us and we can deal with it and issue a replacement pair if necessary.
8000Kicks are 100% legal everywhere in the world. Our team has traveled to Italy, France, USA, Canada, Morocco, Portugal and many other countries without any issues. Hemp is the sober cousin of marijuana, which means that it has no psychoactive components, less than 0.3% THC, definitely not a drug. In some countries it is illegal to cultivate hemp, but it is 100% legal to buy and sell finished hemp products like soap, paper and apparel as long as it is produced abroad.
Do you really want to smoke our shoe? :-D
Hemp is the sober cousin of marijuana, which means that it has no psychoactive components, less than 0.3% THC, so you are definitely not getting high. Now seriously, please note that smoking the shoe is not a good idea and it might get you hospitalized.
I love the thought that went into these shoes. I love that it's made of sustainable hemp and algae, I love that the design looks nice and it is comfortable, I love that it came in came in plastic free packaging, and I love the warmth of the company from their funny emails to the cute thank you card. Great company, great product, will recommend!
I'm usually a 9.5 but I got a 9 and it feels good. Only negative comment is the back of the shoe has dug into my heel, but I expect that will go away once it's worn in.
Explorer V2 for Men Navy Blue
Love these shoes. Very comfortable although a bit snug. Hence the four stars. I would suggest going a size bigger when ordering as they run small. I hope they stretch a little. Other than that I love them.
Fit well, feel good, haven't had them long enough to comment on their wear or water-proof status.
