I purchased every single pair of Atoms Shoes that I own and recommend them to my colleagues and friends. You can get $20 off when you order it through this link, and I will also get $20 off for my next purchase.
How it started
I ordered my first pair of Atoms shoes back in February 2019 based on recommendations from someone I knew. Little that I knew, Atoms Model 000 shoes have become my everyday shoes ever since.
I clocked in more than 1,000 miles on this very Atoms 000 before I replaced the insoles, and ultimately ordered another pair in black.
I have purchased numbers of Limited-Edition Colorway Model 000, among many, in Gray, Neon, Ocean Blue, Coral Pink, Forest Green, Olive Green, and many more. I think I might have a problem, someone help me please.
Model 000 is priced at $129 for each pair.
Atoms Model 001
On June 9, 2022 I ordered the newly announced Model 001 in Clove Green; also available in all Black, and all White models. They arrived some 5 weeks and a few days later.
Model 001 is priced at $159 for each pair.
One new feature in Model 001 is the lounge with hidden loops that help keeping the tongue up with the laces.
I promptly replaced my favorite Atoms Model 000 in Black with Atoms Model 001 in Clove Green.
I noticed immediately that Model 001 is slightly heavier than its predecessor, about 10% heavier. Yes, I did weigh unworn pairs of Model 000 (1.2 lb. / 544.31 grams) and Model 001 (1.32 lb. / 598.74 grams).
Atoms Model 001 also felt heavier on my feet. I theorize that the perceived weight comes from the new outsoles which is stiffer compared to the ones on Model 000.
I realized that I have doubts on my immediate impressions on Model 001, that’s because I really loved and still love wearing Model 000. I knew that if I were to write a review on Model 001, I would need some times to wear them as my primary shoes.
For the month of August 2022, I wore Model 001 to complete Activity August 2022 Challenge, walk or run for 90.2 miles.
I estimated I walk/run for more than 100 miles wearing Model 001 shoes. These shoes felt great on my feet.
I do find Model 001 have better arch supports as they hug my feet tighter compared to Model 000. I do tend to tie the laces tighter on Model 001.
I also noticed that after wearing Model 001 for more than two months, they still make some noise when walking on hard surfaces. I figured that the harder soles are the culprits.
I received another pair of Atoms Model 001 in Purple (limited-edition color) just a few days ago. Compared to its Purple counterpart, the Clove Green pair which I had been wearing for two months shows a negligible water-and-tear, asides from some dirt stains; especially on the outer soles.
Atoms Model 000 are great shoes, and Model 001 are even better. Model 001 compared to Model 000:
- Better Arch and Heel supports
- More cushions
- Tongue loops
- New outsoles provide added tractions
- Slightly heavier
- Soles a bit noisier
- No quarter sizing
Among many things that I love about Atoms shoes in my opinion is its simple design along with the comfort of wearing them. Apparently I am slowly converting my colleagues and friends into Atoms fans.
Currently you still can order pairs of Atoms Model 000 along with Model 001. You can get $20 off when you order it through this link, and I will also get $20 off for my next purchase.
