Who is FootHemp?
FootHemp was born from three co-founders with a combined experience of 75 years in the shoe industry. With offices in Alicante, Spain and Portland, Oregon we formed the idea that we can make great footwear products and accessories leveraging all the benefits of hemp.
Surrounded by all things hemp in Alicante it was natural to look back in history and see how amazing hemp was to our ancestors but even more useful today with climate change and wasteful water consumption.
We are on a mission to provide great design, quality and good for the planet footwear products. We have much more to come!
From Mattel Toys to Nike, Brooks, Apple and Sketchers, Anthony, or Tony, is a world class product engineer. He brings a depth of experience in commercial footwear and has a deep passion for his new venture with his two longtime friends and cofounders, Vincent and David.
