Friday, June 24, 2016 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.
