Calling all cannabis lovers and sneaker collectors.

A new model made from sustainable hemp is coming and sneaker collectors may just have to scratch these off their list next.

Reebok and London-based streetwear label Maharishi announced their second collaboration: the Maharishi x Reebok LT Court Hemp. A vintage take on the Reebok Court classic style.

So cool to know Maharishi has been incorporating hemp fiber as a fabric in their collections since the 1990s.

Maharishi x Reebok LT Court Hemp

The Maharishi x Reebok LT Court Hemp is available this Friday, October 28, 2022.

These will be exclusively sold from Maharishi before the global release taking place on November 7, 2022 from and other retailers.

“The shoe incorporates an army green rubber outsole, chalk midsole, and an off-white hemp fabric upper layer. It also features a soft suede heel tab and terry lining, Maharishi all-over logo arch bandage, Maharishi logo window box, and OG LT Court components including a deconstructed toe box and cup sole tooling” (High Times).

Hardy Blechman founded Maharishi back in 1994. “Maharishi” translates to “great visionary” in Sanskrit. This refers to the brand’s goal of creating durable and ethically produced garments from hemp and organic fibers.

“The LT court is a great court shoe from Reebok’s ’80s archives,” concluded Blechman. “By utilizing hemp and a minimalistic design, the piece stays true to both Maharishi and classic Reebok styling” (High Times).

A Love for Hemp

Maharishi posted the new shoe on Instagram with the caption, “Hemp belongs to one of Earth’s most versatile, resilient, and advanced plant families, which makes it particularly meaningful to Maharishi as a medium for product creation. It is a strong natural fibre that is naturally resistant to pests, therefore reducing its dependence on masses of harmful pesticides. Once harvested, its decomposed roots also enrich and strengthen the soil in which it grew”.
