the common idea of the two german brands roxxlyn ® and nat-2 ™, which was born at a paris trade show, has been to create a sneaker made from real stone. nat-2 ™ is known for its groundbreaking innovations in the field of sneakers and footwear, meanwhile the berlin based company roxxlyn ® is acknowledged for its exclusive accessories made from stone. now, both brands have joined forces for this true german engineering project and sneaker collection for men and women made from real stone.

real slate stone has been made light, soft and flexible through a very complicated and state of the art technology, which has probably been used for the first time with footwear. the luxurious sneakers are produced by hand at a small family-run manufacturer in italy. in addition to the real stone, the innovative footwear features the finest nappa leather and reflecting glass, the well-known, 100% rubber nat-2 ™ high end cup sole, allowing every pair to be unique.

the ‘real stone sneakers’ are not only extremely stylish, but also look and feel super soft and easy to handle. the art on the shoe is also supposed to show that there are real alternatives to the common used materials in the commercial and luxury footwear- and fashion sector, showing that nature provides true natural resources for the way into the future.
