It's hemp, it's ecofriendly, it's waterproof, it's super comfortable, it's lightweight... well, you might want to carefully pick who do you want to surprise because that person is not letting you go.

We’ve all been there: we give someone a gift we hope they’ll love, only to get this reaction: “Oh, yeah...uh, thanks. This is, um, this is really great.”


Ouch. That’s a terrible feeling, isn’t it?


Because when you give a gift, you’re hoping for the exact opposite reaction. You want to see eyes light up. You want to hear one “Thank you!” after another. You want that person excitedly telling friends about it– and about how creative and thoughtful you were when you picked it out.


There’s just no satisfaction quite like the satisfaction of giving someone the perfect gift– especially when it’s for that guy/girl you know who is just impossible to buy gifts for.

So we got thinking: what is it, exactly, that makes a gift that good? What are the key characteristics of the truly perfect gift?


We came up with five reasons why this shoe is a perfect gift. Here they are:

1- Waterproof

We want to build footwear for the active person, the challenger, the explorer, something that could provide the best experience under any condition, and that’s why we built them waterproof.

Our waterproofing includes a natural coating that repels dust and liquids, plus a membrane that keeps water out no matter what.

2- Durable and Flexible

Our premium hemp fibers are carefully selected and woven using highly efficient machinery. That makes the shoes Super lightweight and durable.

The fabric was crafted in a way to make it super adjustable to customer's feet, guaranteeing maximum comfort right from day 1.

3- Comfortable

Introducing the World's 1st Hemp insoles.

Designed and developed by the world's smartest textile engineers using the world's eco-friendliest material. Zero impact on the planet, maximum comfort to our feet.

...Also not for smoking! Sorry folks.

4- Anti-bacterial and Anti-microbial

Before being banned, Hemp was widely used because of its anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties. Also, did you know hemp is used as home insulation because it is a temperature regulating material?

We are introducing the world's 1st Hemp insoles, which is a game changer not only in terms of comfort but also in terms of smell and feet health.

5- Great for walking, hiking, running, skating, sitting, standing, chilling, sailing...

8000Kicks is designed for the outdoors, for the urban explorers and everything in between.

Either if you are travelling in the tropics, running in the mountain or just chilling by the beach, 8000Kicks will be there, because good sneakers take you to good places.

P.S. We understand that some of you may still have some questions and uncertainties about 8000Kicks shoes. We’re regular people like you who have seen plenty of companies make big promises that they just don’t deliver on.


That’s the last thing we want for you. So to make it a little easier for you, we offer free US/EU shipping and free returns on every shoe, plus no-questions-asked returns after purchasing. Don’t love your shoes? No problem at all. Just send it back and you’ll get a full refund.
