the cannabis leaves on the nat-2 sneakers come from sustainably-grown hemp plants. the delicate leaves are layered into a green surface for a natural look, while the comprehensive concept of the sneakers is an homage to festivals and freedom. the leaves vary in sizes and get applied to a natural eco-flax-layer, keeping the natural flower scent. the leaves are soft to the touch, while you can see the material’s natural texture.
