We're mainly an ecommerce business - we sell the bulk of our shoes via this website. But we love to do pop-ups in different cities, particularly in the USA. And, if you're ever in Berlin, you're welcome to come by our warehouse and try a pair on.
Pop-ups & Warehouse
Our warehouse is in Kreuzberg, at no 12-14 Ritterstrasse (we're in the courtyard, a little way back from the street). If you want to be sure to catch us, come between 1pm and 7pm on a Friday or Monday, or between 1pm and 4pm on a Saturday.
If you can't get to Berlin, then hopefully we'll manage to hold a pop-up shop somewhere a little closer to you. We've already 'popped-up' in Stockholm, San Francisco, Oslo, Dublin, Portland, Seattle and New York. And we'll be doing a bus tour of America - effectively a mobile shoe shop - at some point in 2017.
As for finding Atheist Shoes in the shops, there are a handful of independent boutiques who we really like and we're chuffed that they want to sell our shoes. We're always happy to talk to stores who might be interested in stocking us.
At the same time, our hope for this project has always been that we could build a sustainable business, purely by selling shoes direct from our website, with few if any retailers in between ourselves and our customers. And so far it seems to be working - cutting out the middleman has allowed us to keep prices reasonable, whilst still offering better quality and craftsmanship than you'll find in the big highstreet chains. And here's hoping we can keep things that way for a long time to come!
