Atomsis a minimalist shoe company owned by Waqas Ali and Sidra Qasim.
Starting with their shoe company, Markhor, in Okara, Pakistan in 2012, they moved to Silicon Valley in 2015 after a successful Kickstarter campaign. Following their success they became one of the startups lucky enough to be funded by Y Combinator.
Atoms shoes are minimalistic, designed to be worn every day and form to your feet. Differentiating themselves from other minimal shoe brands, Ali and Qasim wanted to offer a completely customized experience for their customers — by creating shoes that could be measured to fit comfortably.
We help people feel good from the ground up.
Inspired by the classic tennis shoe, these minimalist shoes are for everyday wear. Lightweight foam midsoles make you feel like you’re walking on clouds. Never worry about odour again, thanks to the antimicrobial copper lining. The stretch laces allow you to tie up once, and once only. Because of the customized fit, each wear is the perfect wear.
When on their website, you’ll see a link entitled, “Find Your Fit”, as you’re taken through the “Quarter Size Experience”. After asking for your shoe size, whether you typically go up or down in size, and how you spend your time, Atoms will send you an e-mail with your exact fit. As of this writing, there is only one model – Model 000, available in the classic minimalistic styles of black, white, or black with a white sole.
Atoms shoes are one of the best minimalist shoes on the market right now – fashionable, comfortable, and made just for you.
Currently, Atoms are only available to customers within the US but they would like to serve other places, hopefully soon.
