Beyond Leather. Sneakers made like a vegan Currywurst! nat-2™ launches vegan sneakers made from red pepper and recycled PET bottles
German high end sneaker brand nat-2™ presents vegan luxury sneakers made from real upcycled red pepper powder.
The 100% vegan, unisex sneaker’s uppers are made from sustainable recycled real red pepper, which covers up to 50% of the shoe’s surface, depending on each style. The original smell of pepper is unique and gives the product the ultimate Berlin note. The colours fade between blues and purples.
The red pepper is highly fragant and colourful, applied to a natural eco-flax-layer and got the natural spice scent. The feel is one of a kind , while you can smell the spices and see the material’s natural texture. No artificial substances are used. Slight colour deviations are possible and natural. Colour intensity is based on the pepper available.
The concept of the shoe is inspired by the vegan movement and goes way beyond traditional Berlin Currywurst.
The patented material was developed in Germany and Austria, while the finalsneakers are 100% handmade in Italy and produced under fair conditions in a new family-run high-tech facility.
The type of red pepper used varies upon a sustainable availability.
All shoes are 100% vegan and equipped with a soft padded, anti-bacterial real cork insole. The glue is free from animal ingredients and waterbased, the outsoles are made from real rubber and the upper features nat-2™ signature reflective glass details for a better visibility and a techy look. The parts looking like suede or nappa leather are made from recycled PET bottles. The special Lining is made from a German engineered and produced from anti-bacterial and antiseptic bio-ceramic and eco cotton-frottee featuring an air-condition like feel and function.
