Sneaker startup DopeKicks has created what it calls the “worlds 1st” waterproof hemp shoes, presenting a 100% vegan take on footwear. The company’s all-natural shoe is made of extra-strong cannabis hemp fibers, while other upcycled elements make the style completely eco-friendly.

Recycled rubber has been used for the outsoles, while the insoles are crafted of natural tree-growing cork. The tan-colored sneakers also feature 100% waterproof capabilities, ensuring that they are functional and wearable in a variety of climates and environments. DopeKicks took four months to source the most durable hemp material possible, and then partnered with skilled Portuguese manufacturers to use the soles of old shoes in order to create a sturdy foundation.

Thus far, the brand’s Kickstarter campaign has already garnered $125,752 USD of its $10,000 USD goal. For those interested in contributing to the project, visit DopeKicks’ page for more information and to see the shoes in action check out the video below.

Sustainability continues to be a hot topic in the industry for many companies. Recently, Prada increased its own environmental efforts by pledging to use only recycled nylon by 2021.
