German sneaker brand nat-2 have launched a new pair of eco-friendly shoes made from recycled coffee grounds.
The 100% vegan, unisex sneaker’s uppers are made from real sustainable recycled coffee, coffee beans and coffee plant, which covers up to 50% of the shoe’s surface, depending on each style.
The natural material has a smooth texture and even a slight coffee scent.
All the sneakers come with a soft padded, anti-bacterial cork insole, real rubber outsoles, and recycled PET plastic bottle material.
The patented material, which is said to even smell like coffee, was developed in Germany and the final sneakers are handmade in Italy and produced under fair conditions in a new family-run high-tech facility.
Although the first run of the coffee line has sold out, nat-2 are expecting more to be made available soon.
