Day 2 of 31 Hemp Products: Shoes

Vibram FiveFingers Hemp Shoes

HEMP PRODUCT: Shoes

SUB MARKETS: Textiles, Clothing, Fashion, Footwear

Day two of our 31 Days of Hemp campaign appeals to lovers of the outdoors and fashionable trendsetters alike: hemp footwear. While shoes are generally a combination product (i.e. different materials for the sole and adornments), hemp as a textile rivals cotton, linen [flax] and jute. Requiring far less water and chemical treatment to grow than cotton, hemp textiles make for long-lasting, breathable fashions that are also friendly on the environment.

Other great benefits of the fiber include:

  • Strong / Durable
  • Comfortable
  • Absorbent
  • Breathable
  • Retains dyes
  • Hypo-allergenic
  • Course or soft blends
  • Warm and cold weathers
  • Resists mildew
  • UV resistent
