In 2014, nat-2 was voted one of the 30 most creative companies in Germany
Whether LED sneakers, rubber boots made of corn or sneakers with Tyrolean hayfield and Swarovski crystals, milk, corn, glass, coffee, mushrooms or the first vegan sneakers made of wood (2016) – the creative artist from Munich never runs out of ideas when searching for innovative materials for his sneaker production. Thies’ individual revolutionary developments would go beyond the scope of this portrait. At this point we gladly refer to the nat-2 website.
German High-end Sneakers – designed in Germany, handmade in Italy
Natural and recycled materials: the reason why nat-2 uses so many sustainable and environmentally friendly materials? For Sebastian Thies, this is self-evident when talking about good design.
The unique sneakers are designed in Germany. The production takes place mainly in Italy and Spain in small family businesses.
„A true heritage – constantly looking forward, not back without forgetting the rich history and roots.“
With nat-2, sustainability does not stop with the material. Even the shoe boxes, flyers, descriptive texts and hangtags are made of sustainable materials.
Where to buy? In the nat2 online store and in renowned concept stores such as Galleries Lafayette in Paris and Beijing, LaRinascente MIlano and the S*uce Abu Dhabi. Just like in nat-2’s own online store coilex.com in Munich.
Seasonless. Timeless. Mostly unisex. Visionary.
