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?
Introducing the world's 1st Hemp insoles.
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.
Our hemp has been made to repel water from coming in. We added a proprietary coating layer that protects the fabric and its properties from stains, liquids and dust particles. This will make the fabric very easy to clean as well.
Hemp is also a super durable material, that will make your shoe last years before they wear out.

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.
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.
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.
The shoes are great. They fit well, great for wide feet, and they keep themselves clean very well.
The shoes are easy to clean, are extremely absorbent (they don’t stain easily). They look amazing too!
The only downside to these shoes is that they trap in heat, during the summer it can be a little frustrating, but during the winter this could be a good thing.
I adore my recent acquisition of a brand new pair of 8000 Kicks. Let me tell you some reasons why:
They arrived stuffed with strong inserts beneath the tongue and along the sides each shoe. It was more than wadded paper; it was strong and capable of minimizing any foreseeable risk to befall my Kicks during shipment and delivery. An extra pair of laces were provided: bonus! I was a little hesitant about ordering shoes without trying them on because of the sizing, but I followed the company's recommendation for sizing and they fit swell! I think they will even if my feet swell! lol
As I stood in them and walked across the room, it felt like I was walking on air! I felt like I was floating!
And I like that they're fashioned and manufactured from hemp; face it, they're cool!
A marvelous pop-up card, suitable for displaying before friends and family, also was enclosed with the shoes.
I adore my new 8000 Kicks. You will too!

I've been wearing this shoe for nearly a week now, since acquiring it, and thus far I'm very pleased with it. It's an excellent looking shoe, first of all; all clean black and sleek lines. The laces are perhaps the finest I've used in years: it's been a long time since I could wear a shoe for more than two hours without the laces untying themselves. The sole is comfortable and springy when you first put your foot in, it is still comfortable and springy after a week, and indeed as I work a job that sometimes requires me to be seated, it is sometimes springy after a while sitting! Of course, walking, the duration between steps is insufficient for it to really spring. Anyway, my point is that it's comfortable. The shoe fits well - some extra space at the toe, a little bit of loose space around the foot itself. Very pleasant, not tight anywhere. Splash-proofing on the one occasion thus far I've had to try it was effective - no more wearing rainboots when it drizzles for me. I bought this shoe for 15% off, which is still over $100 therefore making it by a considerable margin the most expensive shoe I've ever purchased. Yet to my surprise and delight it appears that it is entirely worth it. 8000 Kicks have created an excellent shoe. At this vantage point I am simply wondering if I will have to, like every other shoe I've worn, replace it after a year, or if it will last for longer. That remains to be seen, but if its promise of durability is as accurate as its other promises, then it may well be several years before I have to replace, and that would make me a happy camper indeed.
I like these more than regular made shoes. They are the best pair of shoes I’ve owned
