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.
Super light 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.
Waterproof and dustproof
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.
100% vegan & sustainable shoes
Only 4.1 kg of CO2 per shoe.
Manufacturing a pair of running shoes emits around 14kg of CO2 into the atmosphere, while a pair of leather shoes can reach up to 100Kg, that's like flying across the US.
Our shoes not only generate a lot less CO2, but they are also 100% vegan and animal friendly.
