We are proud to introduce our newest socks made in Ukraine. 💙💛
The old soviet union has a long tradition of using hemp in clothing, and part of its manufacturing was in Ukraine. In recent years, the machinery has been updated and the quality improved, and for that reason, we picked our hemp socks partner there. Although the country is currently in a war, the factory is well-equipped with generators and bomb shelters. Buy hemp socks made in Ukraine and help the local economy.

These are the new socks by 8000Kicks. Engineered in Portugal and made in Ukraine. They are 100% vegan and ecological, because that's the type of socks you want to wear with your favorite pair of sustainable hemp shoes.
You might think that hemp is harsh to touch. Yes, it is, unless you reengineer the fiber, like we did.
We reverse engineered how these natural materials work and we applied natural fabric softeners like baking soda, white vinegar, lavender oils.
The result ... drums ... ultra softened hemp fibers!

Hemp is a fiber that has been used for milenniums. Ancient Egyptians used it to make rope, textiles, fine linen, and sails.
Hemp is a naturally durable fiber that was widely used in textiles and shoes until it was banned in the 70s. Hemp is also naturally anti-bacterial and anti-microbial, breathable and comfortable, which makes it a great option to build footwear and underwear.
One of the great hemp properties is its insulation and temperature regulating properties. For that reason our shoes and our hemp socks remain warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
In order to develop these socks, we looked at our past and asked older people how did they softened their clothing before the detergent era. The answer was too obvious to believe: baking soda, white vinegar, lavender oils and other stuff that you probably have on your kitchen already. You are blown away, we know.
In other words we reverse engineered how these natural materials work and we applied it to our socks from scratch and the result is ... drums ... ultra softened hemp fibers!
Super durable, highly breathable, ultra softened hemp fibers, anti-heel slip, and also naturally anti-bacterial and anti-fungal.
By using hemp fiber, our socks fit into a whole new category. But there's more to it than it's fabric, as we like to innovate 360º when launching a new product.
Besides Hemp (57%), in order to make the fabric stretchy we also added cotton (41%) and Spandex (2%).
Unfortunately, due to hygienic reasons we don't accept returns and exchanges for the socks.
Hemp socks, like any other socks can be machine washed.
You should however avoid washing them with hot temperatures above 30º as hemp is a natural material and if might shrink.
I wear rubber boots all day and they don't smell bad like the polyester socks do and they are soft.
