First pairs finished today, but we won't get to ship everything before Christmas

Hey Everyone, 

The good news is that the first of the ICH BIN ATHEIST sneakers will be completed today, and ready to ship from Berlin on Monday! That means a few of you will receive your sneakers in time for Christmas. 

The corresponding "less good" news is that most of you probably won't receive your sneakers in time for the big, annual, arbitrary, borrowed-from-the-pagans day of gift exchange and merriment. We're sorry about that, but we really don't want to rush the final, most critical phase of production and, even if we secretly hope that we'll be able to ship more shoes than we presently anticipate, all our experiences down the years have taught us the folly of guaranteeing shipping times in Christmas week. At the same time, our shipping partner DHL usually performs really smoothly in the two weeks following the 25th of December... so we're going to take as much advantage of that as we can. 

If you still need to change your shipping address (ideally the address we have should be somewhere you can receive the shoes from now until January) then please email us: atheist.shoes.berlin@gmail.com, and we'll make the change in our records. 

Thanks for all your patience in recent weeks. We're very nearly there!

David

      Hey LMc, just posted a fresh update. I think we may be able to get your sneakers out the door this week. Will know more tomorrow.
