nat-2™ is not only a brand but also an art project.

we are not striving for sales in every object we create. we take the freedom to experiment, do research, develop and dream. simply out of passion and the need to open our minds and learn.

below you find some examples of our art, which has already been shown in international renown galleries and museums.

High-End Upcycling.

The nat-2™ Sleek is produced under fair conditions in a small family production in Italy

and customized in Bavaria’s Munich. The style is a unique timless classic mostly in clean

white only with a changing back heel. This version is customized by hand and covered

with real liquid iron. Afterwards it gets an oxidation treatment and real rust occurs to

stay. A 100% authentic vintage look and feel comes to live. Then the sneaker gets a moss

treatment for the ultimate look. Each pair is unique. The used italian nappa leather is the

finest and smoothest available. The shoe also features a real cork removable insole. The

back heel part is highly reflective depending on the light angle. While wearing the shoe

will further transform and develop its very own patina. The customization process is

made by hand and takes about 12 working hours. Handmade in Italy | Customized in
