About Sneakers Unplugged
A new approach
Until now, if you were looking for sustainably produced sneakers, you either had to have sound prior knowledge or be very good at googling. Fortunately, this is now a thing of the past! Here you have a great selection in one store - the first sneaker store for sustainable sneakers in Europe!
Sneakers Unplugged is the "place to shop" for everyone who loves absolutely stylish and street-ready sneakers, but is looking for sustainable, fair, eco-friendly or vegan alternatives to the mainstream. Unplugged stands for our belief that fairly produced sneakers don't have to look as such and do not need to be produced at the expense of the environment, animals or poor people either.

Review: Pop-Up Store Cologne
Unfortunately interrupted by Corona lock-down
It started promisingly and the response was again very positive. Unfortunately, this time the lock-down interfered again and we had to stop our sales activities halfway through. A pity, but due to the steeply increasing numbers understandable and comprehensible measures. But this will not have been our last pop-up store in Cologne, so we are looking forward to a hopefully better 2021!
Review: Pop-Up Store Düsseldorf
Unplanned, but great!
Our friends from 'The funky Deli' - a cute little cafe with delicious vegan and vegetarian dishes in Düsseldorf Bilk are not unaffected by the new Lock-Down2 restrictions. Therefore they had offered us to use their premises temporarily to start a pop-up store with sustainable sneakers! 😍 We were then on site with our offering from 07.11 to 08.12 inclusive and were warmly & warmly welcomed by the neighbours, resident businesses and running clientele! Great people and time, but most of all we were impressed by the cohesion of the small businesses in the street! Really recommend due well street!!!
Review: Pop-Up Store Cologne
In Cologne we had the specially rented Galerie 0 in the trendy Südstadt all to ourselves on October 23rd and 24th and the result was a beautiful and full sneaker store! It was super nice, lots of great customers, nice feedback and some surprised faces about the amount of stylish and sustainable sneaker models! :-)) We are really looking forward to round 2 in December between Dec 10 - 19 in the same location. Mark your calendars!
Review: Pop-Up Store Berlin
It was fantastic!
In collaboration with the slow fashion store M Studio we were guests in the hip Friedrichshain on October 16 & 17! And it was really nice! Great people, customers, conversations, impressions and experiences! And we could help - despite the noticeable Corona influences - that Berlin now has some more citizens with sustainable sneakers! 😎
