German high end sneaker brand nat-2™ presents the world’s first vegan wooden sneakers. The result looks anything but the usual eco stuff. The 100% vegan, unisex sneaker’s uppers are made from real sustainable wood, which covers up to 90% of the shoe’s surface, depending on each style.
The wood is applied to an organic cotton and vector engraved in a way that the material bends and becomes soft and flexible like a fine nappa leather. The feel is very smooth and fine, while you can smell the wood and see the tree’s natural texture.
The wood used to create the fabrics comes exclusively from ethically managed forests and with respect for the entire ecosystem. The material is FSC certified ®, which guarantees the traceability and origin of the wood.
The patented material and the final sneakers are 100% made in Italy and produced under fair conditions in a new high-tech facility. The types of wood used are ash, birch, maple, tulip tree, walnut, cherry, elm and beech.
All shoes are 100% vegan and equipped with a soft padded, anti-bacterial real cork insole.
The glue is free from animal ingredients, the outsoles are made from real rubber. nat-2™ signature reflective and/or iridescent details are applied for a better visibility for the brand’s typical futuristic look.
The collection includes four different low top and high top models for women and men in various colours and wooden tones.
