Model 001

Brand New Design

We rethought the ideal everyday shoe from the ground up. Again.

Tie-once Stretch Laces

You’ll only need to tie your Atoms shoes once; Stretch Laces hold tight.

No Bad Odors

Antimicrobial copper threads are woven into the inside of all Atoms shoes.

Shoes that are simply better.

Our first sneakers, Model 000, were critically-acclaimed and beloved for their simple design and remarkable comfort. With Model 001, we wanted to give you tons of new upgrades while keeping the magical comfort and radical simplicity of Atoms the same.

Designed for walking

Designed for standing

Designed for commuting

Designed for movement

Designed for everyday

The Model 001 is designed to be the only shoe you reach for at whatever time you want to wear shoes. With super durability, unparalleled breathability, and a pared down look that can be dressed up or down effortlessly, once you wear them you’ll only ask “why” — as in, “why did I wear anything else?”

Comfort?
Durability?
Support?

Yes to all of it.

Materials Matter

We’re using an injection molded phylon process to create our unique midsole-outsole, with a lightweight durable exterior that clasps from the outside, while offering a highly comfortable foam inside where most of the foot interacts with the shoes.

Beyond durability, the new outsole offers support to the foot in every step; because of its more rigid shape and increased strength, there’s a lot more stability working hard to reduce pronation and supination for the wearer.

Fantastic Elastic

One-of-a-kind elastic Stretch Laces that never untie pair with a responsive mesh upper that adapts to your foot’s movement. Atoms are designed to be tied only once and then easily slipped on everyday thereafter.

No More Funky Smells

Antimicrobial elemental copper threads are woven through the inner fabric and the removable insoles of Model 001. Thanks to feedback from our community, we double-downed and put three times as much copper into these parts of the shoe to really, really ensure it’ll kill the stuff that causes odors.
