We tested out the Atoms Model 001 shoes and wanted to share our honest review.
Thank you to Atoms for sending us a pair of 001s for our review!
We put the Atoms 001 (in white!) to the test! Here’s our honest review:
We love the overall look and style of the Atoms 001s. We went for the color white, which is a classic and timeless style. The shoe also has a minimalist design. It goes with almost any outfit. Atoms offers several classic colors, as well as more colorful colors on a limited-edition basis.
There are also unique details of the Atoms 001s that shouldn’t be overlooked. First, the inside of the shoe has a grey striped pattern that is visible around the edges while wearing them.
Another unique design feature we love is the bottom of the sole. It has actual holes that reveal the midsole.
With comfort being one of the main objectives, Atoms 001 shoes hit the nail on the head. They are comfortable from the first time you put them on and continue to provide comfort all day.
Part of the comfort comes from the structured fit. An example of the structured support offered by the Atoms 001 is the padded area at the rear of the shoe. It wraps around both sides of our achilles tendon perfectly. Our Atoms fit like a glove.
We put the Atoms 001s to the ultimate test by wearing them to Disney World. Yes, we broke the ultimate rule of wearing “broken in” shoes to Disney, but the wear test was a success! We were able to walk 10,000+ steps with no blisters or sore feet. We also appreciated the breathability of the Atoms 001s. Our feet didn’t get too sweaty, even in the extreme heat.
Atoms come with a flat elastic shoe lace, that once tied, is designed to remain tied as long as you want. There is also elastic on the tongue of the shoe, which allows you to easily put them on and take them off without having to untie them. We love this feature! It saves time getting out the door, and as a busy moms, we love time hacks!
We really love the new trend where shoes are designed to be machine washable. This is extra important to us since our Atoms are white and bound to get dirty.
We were blown away by the packaging. So unique! The box unfolds down the middle and is magnetic!
This unique, high-quality shoe box truly adds to the overall experience of the Atoms!
The first thing we noticed once we opened the box, besides the excellent and unique presentation and packaging, was the craftsmanship. There is a very high level of detail in the design and construction. There was no stray adhesive. There was no stitch out of place.
Atoms has an amazing discount program for teachers, students, healthcare workers, military and other government agencies, first responders, and seniors.
Here’s the specific details of the Atoms discount program:
We like supporting brands that are eco-friendly. Atoms 001s are both recyclable and made with recycled materials.
The upper portion of the shoes are made with 100% recycled yarn.
Overall, we love our Atoms 001s! Although they are on the pricier side, we think they are worth it. They’re high-quality that we expect to last for years to come. The timeless look also can be paired with many outfit, which means we’ll get maximum use out of them. The Atoms 001s make a great staple piece in any wardrobe.
