WHY HEMP SHOES?

8000Kicks' are made from industrial hemp, a sativa branch, known as the sober cousin of marijuana.
Industrial hemp has been used since 8000 BC, and it's properties include being anti-bacterial, needing no fertilizers and almost no water to grow, it cleans and restaures the nutrients in the soil, and it is also very durable. In fact, Hemp is so strong that Henry Ford even built a car out of it.
We are pioneers in the development of hemp and our goal is to bring back this powerful natural fiber and make hemp shoes mainstream.

Strong and Flexible Hemp

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

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

Game changing comfort!

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.

100% vegan & ecofriendly

Only 4.1 kg of CO2 per shoe.

Manufacturing a pair of running shoes emits around 14kg of CO2 to the atmosphere, while a pair of leather shoes can reach up to 100Kg, that's like flying across the US.

Our shoes not only generate a lot less CO2, they are also 100% vegan and animal friendly.

Someone said 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.

Ultralight algae bottom

Weed upper, and algae bottom.

Phenomenons like algal blooms can destroy entire marine ecosystems if not controlled.

We partnered up with Bloom Foam to create a super light algae outsole with increased durability while sponsoring the removal of harmful algae.

Care Guide

Care Guide

Although possible, we don't suggest machine washing as it might compromise the waterproofing and damage the fabric's ability to repel liquids and dust. Instead, hand wash them with warm water and soap.

It's THAT comfortable!

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?

FAQ

  • What if the shoe doesn't fit? Exchanges & returns?

    We want to get you in a pair that fit right, and that you love wearing. If you are not satisfied with your purchase, contact us within 60 days of receiving your 8000Kicks to arrange for a replacement, exchange, or refund. Footwear must be in new condition, with no signs of wear, and in original packaging. All returns require a return authorization from 8000Kicks Customer Service. We reserve the right to require a photo of the footwear.

    UK, Europe and Canada

    Reduced shipping for orders above 100$. Working on free exchanges and returns.

  • Where do you ship from? Shipping times?

    We currently fulfil our orders from Mira Loma, in California, and from Lisbon, Portugal. Standard shipping times vary:

    USA: 3 to 7 days

    EU: 5- 7 days

    Portugal: 2 days

    Rest of the world: 2 weeks

    Note: Please expect delays with international shipping due to COVID. BREXIT is also causing delays in he UK:

  • Is it really waterproof?

    Our shoes have two layers of waterproof protection:

    1- A coating that repels liquids and dust from coming in.

    2- A membrane that keeps water out no mater what.

    This means that our kicks work under rain and puddles. However, water might still get in from the ankle and the shoelaces area, specially under heavy rains or if completely submerged.

  • Is there a warranty? Are they durable?

    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.

  • Can I take this on a flight? Will police dogs come after me?

    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.

  • Can I smoke the shoe?

    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.

Best Shoes I've Ever Owned

I love these shoes. They're better for the environment, they're vegan, they're comfortable, they're durable, and they're stylish. I'd been a fan of 8000Kicks for the last year or two and have been waiting for a color that was a little more stylish. Love my navy blue explorer V2s. I'd say the fit is a little smaller than other shoes, so maybe try a little up, especially if your feet are prone to swelling.

The waterproofing is shocking good, though obviously not infallible. Heads up that the waterproofing means that air doesn't circulate super well and your feet can get a little hot. Luckily the shoes are super easy to pull off and on if you need a break during a hike.

Overall, these were definitely the right shoes for me. I get enough arch support, my feet feel secure in them, and they feel like they'll last. My wife's pair are still going strong over a year later, so I'm not worried about this pair.
