The high-end German sneaker brand nat-2™ launched a new vegan sneaker collection made from recycled coffee grounds at the end of last year. The innovative unisex sneakers are covered with a layer of patented material which has the natural aroma of coffee.
After launching mushroom-based shoes in early 2018, the company has now expanded its vegan range with this new innovation. The luxury vegan sneakers made from recycled coffee grounds are available in two versions, high and low top. Depending on the style, the new sneakers may be coated with up to 50% recycled coffee, resulting in a smooth and fine texture.
The rest of the shoe is made of genuine rubber for the outer sole, reflective components for brand identity, a water-based adhesive, and a soft-padded, antibacterial cork insole. The parts which look like suede or nappa leather, especially visible in the high top version, are made of recycled PET bottles. All sneakers are handmade in Italy and manufactured under fair conditions in a high-tech, family-run facility.
