WHY HEMP?

8000Kicks hemp runners are made from industrial hemp, a sativa branch, known as the sober cousin of marijuana.
Industrial hemp has been used since 8000 BC, and its properties include being anti-bacterial, needing no fertilizers and almost no water to grow, hemp also cleans and restores 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 products mainstream.

Carbon speed board

When making our products, we not only work with premium materials, we also pick the best people. Our customers asked performance and that's exactly what we got them.


Our midsole comes in an high performance material and with an embedded carbon speed board that gives runners an extra kick on every pace they take forward.

Shoelaces Pocket

No one likes to go around with laces jumping left and right. That's why we have created an elastic pocket in the tongue of the shoe where you can store laces seamlessly.

Looks good, and it feels even better. Sustainability meets innovation, all powered by hemp.

Super breathable

One of the great properties of hemp fibers is the fact that it is naturally porous, which makes it a great breathable material for shoes, and keeping your feet cool and less smelly.

Facts don't lie, and images much less, these kicks have all the smoke!

Unseen shoe comfort

You have tried hundreds of shoes already, but what you haven't seen yet is the comform of a hemp insole.

Hemp is known because of its anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties. Also, it is a naturally insulating fiber keeping your feet warm healthy.

Vegan and Sustainable

Hemp is the world's most sustainable natural fiber, and we are here to make it great again. By using hemp we have a next-to-neutral carbon footprint, that we offset by planting trees all around the world.

We put a great focus on the environment and we use almost only natural materials like rubber and hemp. For that reason, our runners are 100% vegan and almost completely biodegradable.

THE PEOPLE BEHIND IT

THE FOUNDING TEAM

A 77 year old and his grandson

Bernardo, the co-founder, moved back to Portugal in 2017 to start a new project, but he didn’t know exactly what it would be. 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.

He 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.
