A personal note from the Atoms founders – Model 001

Hi friends, – this is Sidra & Waqas, co-founders of Atoms. We wanted to send a personal note to you and the Atoms community to update you on the launch of our new Model 001 shoes.

We started Atoms with the goal to make a shoe that you’d want to wear every day. Our first shoe, the Model 000, focused on magical comfort, everyday use cases, and breathability. Ever since, we have been working to get to the next level of making the best everyday shoe possible, and that’s what brings us to our latest shoe, Model 001.

A lesser-known truth about our name Atoms is our willingness to go to an atomic level to make our products better. This is how we approached our first shoe and it is the same philosophy that led to the development of Model 001.

Model 001 brings the magical comfort of Atoms with a completely redesigned outsole for maximum support and stability. The new shoes are more durable and slip-resistant, while not compromising on comfort. The outsole construction is upgraded by adding enhanced materials that protect the cushiony foam in the middle of the shoe which makes Atoms so comfortable.

In addition, the new design has:

  • Double the copper threading that eliminates odor and keeps your feet fresh
  • A new tongue with the hidden loops that keep the tongue in place
  • Our special Atoms laces that never get untied
  • Interior flex points that lock the foot in place to reduce pronation & provide the perfect fit
  • 10+ additional upgrades across materials and craftsmanship that makes Model 001 the best shoes for people who are serious about comfort, walking a lot, or standing for long hours

You can order your pair at – we have most sizes/colors in stock and ready to ship from our warehouse in South Korea.

Our favorite quote from an Atoms customer succinctly expresses it: “000 were the best shoes ever. But 001, wow! 🤯” We have been overwhelmed by the early reaction and can’t wait for you to try them.

Thank you so much for your support.
