We’re coming to the end of Hemp History week and in homage to the coolest plant on earth we’ve consolidated a short list of fashionable footwear to incorporate your everyday eco-friendly attire. Whether you run tings in Kingston or Northern Cali we’re sure you’ll find a fit. And if you don’t know the multitude of benefits of this amazingly sustainable crop, you can ask Bob, Willy or Woody. The green fashion revolution isn’t new. People have been making clothes from hemp for ages–it’s the stuff that the first pair of Levi’s were made of. So enjoy this fresh produce direct from the farm and straight to your feet as you hit your local city streets.
