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 eutrophisation 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.
Fast and easy customer service, shoe size availability, and totally comfortable.
These shoes are comfortable, waterproof, and they look great. Initially, I ordered based off of my own measurement of my foot. I ended up getting a pair that were a little small. After contacting support, I took pictures of the shoes and my packing slip and return them with a shipping label they were kind enough to send me. Support was very helpful and kind. My new pair arrived soon after and I have enjoyed wearing them ever since.
I ordered Beige & Green, also, a pair of black ... love each pair, am wearing black pair today with gray jeans, looks great, feels great, easy to brush dust and cat hair off (my cats love to snug up to them when I return home) ... typically my feet are warm when weather is warm, shoes seem to have good ventilation and breathing capabilities, so no sweaty feet ... just can't say enough and look forward to new offerings you send my way! Thanks, again and am really getting a 'kick' out of my new shoes!!!
I like your concept of the sneakers but want the toe box to be round and more roomy. Also, I want natural or tan color and maybe green. See the old Simple brand sneakers, now out of business that had six eye holes for a snug fit.
