Our footwear is handcrafted by the finest artisans in Italy with the best materials available. Our fragrances are 100% natural and made with the most premium ingredients.
As a sneaker and perfume collector in his teens, Ahmet Sahin never lost his passion for style when growing up. While working in nightlife, security, and personal protection, he realized the importance of reliable footwear. Footwear that keeps its grip on when things get slippery. This realization led to the developing of the R-2: A hightop that fuses sophisticated materials and style with raw performance. The R-2 is executed in extra thick Bos Taurus calf nubuck and suede leather, hand-made by expert artisans in Italy. This leather retains its shape through the years of heavy and not-so heavy usage.
Having immersed himself in the world of perfumery for over a decade, Sahin has nurtured a persistent desire to cultivate his very own fragrance, one that promises a daring olfactory journey. Fashion and fragrance are intrinsically connected and our fragrances embody sensuality, as well as strength, prowess, grandeur, and might. These fragrances are crafted for individuals who embrace the thrill of life's risks. Every scent is meticulously crafted to transport you to a world of thrilling adventure. Our fragrances are 100% natural and made with the most premium ingredients on the market.
The sole of the R-2 is executed with ultra-resistant Vibram soles and provides the required cushioning and stability of a premium running sole by matching lightness, stability, and safety features. The thermoplastic heel insert provides the heel with comfort and shock absorption. The antistatic rubber and TPU inserts guarantee superior grip on wet surfaces. It exceeds EN13287 SRC slip and ISO 20345 standards. The footbed in the R-2 is made from polyurethane foam covered with calfskin leather. Soft and comfortable even after a long day. With its low density and weight, it offers high wear resistance, thermal insulation, slip resistance, and flexibility.
The heart of the sole and heart of the brand feature the color blaze orange. Orange, the color of energy, symbolizes ambition -to create a more beautiful world-, adventure as well as creativity. Blaze orange is also the color worn by hunters in the US who have selected this specific shade of orange for two reasons: it is an natural color and it is one of the most highly visible colors to the human eye, even in low-light conditions.
Orange also symbolizes a future free of gun violence. Exactly because of his professional track record in weapons training, Sahin believes in safety for citizens. Investi endorses therefore, Wear Orange. The heart of the brand is a tribute to those who contribute to a safer world.
