When the founders of Atoms developed the Model 000, their goal was to create a shoe that someone not only could wear every day but would want to wear every day. They started by obsessing over fit. If a shoe doesn't fit right, it doesn't feel right. If it doesn't feel right, it doesn't look right. So Atoms created the world's first shoe available in quarter sizes. The Model 000 has a simple knit upper inspired by classic tennis shoes and a custom foam midsole that delivers cloud-like cushioning. An antimicrobial copper lining keeps your feet feeling fresh, and stretch laces allow the shoes to be simply slipped on and off. In short, it may be the most comfortable every day shoe you ever wear.
