The Explorer is the first ever model of hemp shoes developed by 8000Kicks. It was designed and engineered in Portugal to achieve the most ecofriendly, durable and comfortable sneaker ever built. Minimalist, yet stylish enough to fit every occasion, indoors or outdoors.















100% VEGAN






Strong and Flexible Hemp

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

The way yarn was built and the way it was woven together, makes the fabric super ajustable to customer's fee, guaranteeing maximum comfort after the 1st days

Someone said waterproof?

We want to provide 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 splash friendly and water repellent

Ultralight algae bottom

Weed upper, and algae bottom.

Phenomenons like eutrophication 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.

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.


I bought a pair of these and had to exchange them for a different size. The customer service representative was extremely helpful and let me swap out the size and color. The shoes fit great, and I really like the style. 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 shoes are switched to hemp eventually but in the mean time I’m glad I’ve found my new shoes and I’ll continue to purchase them! :)


I've bought "hemp shoes" 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, and they came with a spare pair of shoelaces and free shoe forms made from either Hemp or recycled cardboard. Either way - I'm one HAPPY CUSTOMER!


Awesome shoes and very confortable.
Enjoy your long walks 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!


The shoes 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!!


My shoes 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 the kicks they looked great and were comfortable but unfortunately they were a bit small so I reached out to them and they replied quick and were super helpful to get an exchange or refund. You can tell that they really want to satisfy their customers. Overall a great experience! Would recommend.


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 size, but with the great customer service they changed it to the right size in time before shipment. Meaning I got my awesome shoes that are very comfortable to walk in, specially for long days when the foot swells. Comfortable space, comfortable cushion and comfortable wear. I enjoy them alot, and I walk a lot on hard surface. 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.


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


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




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.

I am not sure which size to pick!

Every brand has their own system and sometimes even models from the same brand differ from each other. But here's how you can find your shoe size.

Select a comfortable pair of sneakers and look at the CM/JP number. That's their maximum fit in CM, therefore your feet will be smaller. Then go to the 8000Kicks table and look for a size with the same range. In case of doubt always size up.

*In case of doubt always size up.

Your size is not on the list ?

We are always opening new sizes. Half sizes, bigger and smaller, you are gradually opening new sizes as our company grows.

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 smoke the shoe?

Do you really want to smoke our shoe?

Hemp is the sober cousin of marijuana, which means that it has no psychoactive components, less than 0.3% THC, which means that technically you are definitely not getting high. Now seriously, please note that smoking the shoe is not a good idea and might get you hospitalized.

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.
