Wood-based vegan sneakers
On our minds is German shoemaker nat-2 and their brand new line of sustainable wood sneakers. Made with FSC-certified ash, birch, maple, tulip tree, walnut, cherry, elm and beech woods attached to organic cotton backings, the uppers are treated for softness and flexibility and have a similar feel to nappa leather. Constructed with animal-free glues, the sneakers are also 100% vegan, adding to the growing non-leather footwear alternatives out there, and the manufacturing process means that the scent of wood and the trees’ natural texture come through in the final designs. The range currently comprise of four unisex high and low top styles in men and women’s sizes, all ethically produced in Italy. Read more here.
