Have you ever tried sneakers? Easy ha! But what If I will ask you? Have you ever tried waterproof Sneakers that are made up of hemp? Definitely, your answer will be going to be a Big No. But with Dopekicks, you can experience truly waterproof sneaker shoes that are made of Hemp. Yes, I said Hemp. It was shocking to me, too, as I had never imagined that Hamp could be for anything besides Smoking.
Indeed, there is certainly fire in it, But you can’t smoke them😆.
I found these unique sneakers on Kickstarter last week, and this project has covered crowdfunding of US$ 210,448 among 2000 backers, and still, 5 days are left to “back this project.”
Here, you can have a pledge starting from $1 to anything, and if you pledge for more than $297, you will have 3 pairs of dope kick shoes absolutely at your home without any shipping charges.
I feel that these sneakers will be a trendsetter, not in terms of fashion, although they will preserve nature. The shoes are fashionable, Tough, Waterproof. Besides these, much more things are associated. Let’s discover the reason why dopekicks will blow your mind while being the first-ever pure vegan footwear.
And speaking of Vegan footwear, how about having one shoe for all weathers? That’s right; Loom’s Vegan Sneaker is one of its kinds that will keep your feet comfy and dry no matter the weather. These are waterproof sneakers that are engineered for comfort and contain moisture-wicking material and antimicrobial properties to keep your feet fresh all the time.
The Dopekicks use cannabis to craft out its upper layer, which you all know is natural, but that’s not the only thing. Dopekicks made insoles using cork tree bark, which is again natural, along with a rubber outer sole. Don’t Worry by listening to the term rubber as they used recycled rubber to mold out a custom sole.
This is a mile ahead in terms of the caring environment as most shoe brands keep manufacturing new soles. However, Dopekicks is trying to help the environment by clearing the garbage without compromising other shoe manufacturers’ quality, which is truly remarkable.
2. Super Strong
Do you know hemp fibers are stronger than steel? Yeah, it’s not a joke. There is a valid reason behind it. Hemp fibers can hold almost twice the weight as steel before it cracks or breaks even it has 6 times better-bending properties.
While communicating with Bernardo, CEO of DopeKicks, He claimed that this vegan sneaker’s durability is more than any Nike or Adidas out there. It’s just “no one has used these sneakers so long as they just launched it.”
As you already know, Dopekicks is a sneaker made up of Hemp used for outer covering, Cork used for insoles, and Recycled Rubber for Outer sole.
These combinations make the shoe super flexible as the rubber tends to go in its original shape after getting bent or stretched. These things make dopekicks shoes a perfect partner for your yoga, gym, dance session as they will complement your every move.
Besides being durable and flexible, its quality of repelling water makes it fit to be used in the rainy season. Hamp canvas is a tough material with its properties being water resistant but with some advanced research and design.
The Dopekicks made the shoe water repellent, which means you can use the shoe in the forest where unplaned waterways exist or on a rainy day when streets are full of water. You can also any through the water to clean it up, unlike regular shoes where you need to wait for shoes to become dry.
Having a good pair of waterproof shoes not only helps in keeping your feet dry but also prevents the various feet diseases that could be caused due to wet feet. So, it is a must to have waterproof shoes for all day long and any kind of activity. Just like Senja waterproof casual shoes.
Senja was designed for all types of terrain and every climate. Their unique features protect your feet in any environment, from snow-covered peaks to sandy beaches to mossy rainforests. Whatever your adventure, Senja will take you there.
5. 100% Vegan Product
Yes, the sneakers made by Dopekicks are 100% Vegan as no animal product is used in its making. As you already know, hemp and cork are a type of tree. Here I would like to add that rubber is made up of a fluid released by latex trees, which means the rubber is also an ecological natural thing. These things together make the shoe Vegan.
6. Temperature Regulator
The insoles are made up of cork known for being non-deforming even after years of use. Apart from this, it is also a temperature regulating property that absorbs the heat produced by friction. It keeps the feet cool for long hours, even on hot, humid days.
Do you know cork is widely used in Portuguese construction for insulation purposes? Yes, It’s a tried and tested thing, or you can say it’s a tip from our ancestors to become less affected by hot weather.
7. Infection Proof
Yes, the shoe is infection-proof, which will prevent any bacterial or microbial growth. Cork is widely known for having antibacterial/antimicrobial properties as these are a common problem for feet. Several people around the world suffer from itchy feet, odourful socks, etc.
Do you know the main cause behind most of these problems? Nothing but bacteria wearing shoes for long hours in the hot and humid environment make feet sweating with bacteria’s growth, this problem starts. No worries with dopekicks, as you can effectively fight any possibility of microbial growth.
The cool design and qualities like being waterproof, flexible, tough making it a perfect fit for any occasion. You can use these shoes for tracking, wild safari, office, a party without even caring for the season or weather.
9. Social Cause
Besides having tremendous qualities, there is another reason to back the product. The Dopekicks are helping Hemp farmers by purchasing hemp at reasonable prices. This innovation will lead to farmers’ endless possibilities as a shoe is a massive market, and if these hemp shoes replaced the regular shoe.
Then the demand for hemp will increase, which will increase hemp farmer income as well. Providing them with a bigger means towards life and much more.
Here is a quick look at these sneakers:
