WHY HEMP?

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 and hemp backpacks mainstream.

FAQ

Returns and exchanges

Each hemp wallet has a period of 60 days be returned or exchanged. It must be in the original packaging. The 8000Kicks reserves the right to ask for pictures to confirm the product is in the same condition as when it was sent.

Is it really waterproof?

Our backpack has 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 the backpack is ready to take heavy rain showers, but It is not ready to be submerged under water.

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.

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 backpack?

Do you really want to smoke our backpack? :-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 backpack is not a good idea and it might get you hospitalized.

TRUST PILOT REVIEWS

I bought one of these and had to exchange them for a different color. The customer service representative was extremely helpful and let me swap out the color. It’s crazy to think that they’re made of hemp but it makes me feel better about owning something that’s not going to pollute the Earth. I hope all backpacks are switched to hemp eventually but in the mean time I’m glad I’ve found my new bag and I’ll continue to purchase it! :)

LESLEY

I've bought "hemp bags" before, and been disappointed, so I wasn't sure what to expect here, but these shoes are beyond my expectations!

They're stylish, super light, and comfortable!

Everything about their packing was also eco-friendly, from either Hemp or recycled cardboard. Either way - I'm one HAPPY CUSTOMER!

DJ NICKE

Awesome backpacks and very sturdy.
Enjoy your weekedn trips with confort and style and if you want to have a conversation piece you can also use them. No one will know at first of what they are made off and everyone will find it interesting!

JOÃO ALMEIDA

The backpacks are awesome and they came in a super cool and sustainable box! They are 100% waterproof which is great and they are even better in person in comparison with the photos on the website! In addition they arrived in 24 hours after I ordered them and the customer service is as efficient as it is nice! I have already recommended them to friends and family and will continue to do so. I hope the company continues to grow and that hemp becomes an even more accessible material for producers! Thank you!!

INÊS DELGADO MARTINS

My backpacks arrived a little later than expected and because of that the CEO actually emailed me to inform me about it and apologized. I really appreciated this. When I got them they looked great. Overall a great experience! Would recommend.

CÉLINE JAEGGI

Got my shoes today, iam so happy with them ! the plus side is the amazing sustainable packaging, very classy, even the enveloppe that contains the shoe box is made of plastic corn .... Its seams that my shoes got lost in the mail, 8000 contacted me by phone and was super eager to check my address so i could get them fast which happened 5 days later ... I was suprised by this gesture and customer service that i feel is rare nowadays ... they are confortable and beauty'full ... I love hemp for this plant will help save the planet and iam so happy to be able to participate to such a beauty'full entreprise in a world of competition, selfishness and jealousy ... so thank you to the 8000kicks team, one can feel when love is in every shred of hemp !

At first I accidently ordered the wrong color, but with the great customer service they changed it to the right color in time before shipment. Meaning I got my awesome backpacks that are very stylish and with a comfortable cushion. Also I live the idea of durability and less impact on the environment. I hope this project evolves as an example for others to follow.

LINN ELISE ROLVAG

Ordered the wrong size by mistake and Margarida in customer service quickly got me a return label and made sure I got the correct size. The shoes are light and soft and fit great. I wear ankle socks, so I normally need to wear higher socks to break in a new pair of shoes, but I'm surprised how good these feel right out of the box. Soft and flexible. And to top it all off, they're made of my favorite material! Lol

BRETT

Very cool shoes and concept! Customer Service responds quickly and very nice and helped very well with unusual requests!

THE PEOPLE BEHIND IT

THE FOUNDING TEAM

A 77 year old and his grandson

One night, after a few beers and joints with the boys, someone came up with the idea of making a shoe for smoking. It was a 5-in-morning-kind-of-idea, or maybe not.

Bernardo, the co-founder, asked the most unlikely person for help: Otilia, his grandmother, with over 50 years’ experience in textiles. Together, they spent over 1 year actively working with suppliers from around the world until what is now the World’s 1st waterproof hemp shoe.

I bought one of these and had to exchange them for a different color. The customer service representative was extremely helpful and let me swap out the color. It’s crazy to think that they’re made of hemp and algae but it makes me feel better about owning something that’s not going to pollute the Earth. I hope all backpacks are switched to hemp eventually but in the mean time I’m glad I’ve found my new everyday backpack and I’ll continue to purchase it! :)
