Reebok Releases Hemp Sneakers in Collaboration with Maharishi

Reebok and London-based streetwear brand Maharishi have announced their collaboration, resulting in sneakers made from hemp fabric. The Maharishi brand has been incorporating hemp fiber as a fabric in its collections since the 1990s.

The shoe features a moro-colored rubber sole, chalk midsole, and white hemp fabric upper. They also feature a soft suede heel strap and terry cloth lining, as well as the Maharishi logo in a window on the side of the shoe.

Hemp Is Highly Versatile

“Hemp is one of the most versatile, resilient and advanced plants on Earth, which makes it especially important to Maharishi as a means of creating products,” Maharishi wrote on Instagram.

“It is a strong natural fiber that is naturally resistant to pests, which reduces its dependence on harmful pesticides. Once harvested, its decomposed roots enrich and strengthen the soil in which it grew.”

Hemp Sneakers Available Worldwide

According to the press release, the Maharishi x Reebok LT Court Hemp shoes were available for purchase starting October 28, 2022, exclusively from Maharishi, with a worldwide release on November 7 on and at retailers.

Hardy Blechman founded the Maharishi company in 1994. “Maharishi” literally means “great visionary” in Sanskrit and refers to the brand’s goal of creating sustainable and ethically produced clothing made from organic fibers.

Based On a Classic Design

“The Tour LT is a great tennis shoe from Reebok’s archives from the 1980s,” said Blechman. – Blechman concluded. “Using hemp and a minimalist design, the shoes stay true to both the Maharishi style and the classic Reebok style.”

Hemp Clothing: Beyond Sneakers

Hemp clothing is not just about fashion – as a plant, it is a carbon dioxide enemy. Hemp plants help absorb CO2 from the atmosphere faster than trees. Hemp also uses much less water than trees. They also provide regenerative properties for the soil, restoring essential nutrients to the soil. 

The first Levis jeans were made precisely from hemp, which earned them the nickname “indestructible.” Brands such as Nike and Adidas, which have been regularly releasing a series of shoes made from hemp for years, also know about the beneficial properties of hemp fabric.
