    2 x ICH BIN ATHEIST cotton gym bags

    This achingly sexy gym bag is the envy of rational exercisers everywhere.

    Made from anti-calories and 100% hipster-farmed cotton, it not only causes you to lose weight as you wear it* but you'll look so totally spiffing on your way to the gym that everyone will want to shag you.

    *Just ask Jens Schneider "I wore this ATHEIST Gym Bag to to the gym for 4 weeks, and I lost a staggering 5 kilos as a result. Now I have a girlfriend, a cat and I just got a promotion at work".

    PLEASE NOTE - We'll send you 2 bags for the price of 1... so you can give one to a friend, or just wear two at the same time.

    1 pair of DAS SNEAKERs

    This sneaky so-&-so is our latest evolution of the original ATHEIST shoe design. And we have a hunch it's the most luxurious and minimalistic sneaker EVER created.

    This reward entitles you to a pair of sneakers in one of two types of leather: velvety soft nubuck OR smooth, supple napa... both hard-wearing and weather-proof, but nonetheless orgasmically soft.

    We can make heaps of colours, including...

    Nubuck: Grey, Black, Cream, Chocolate Brown, Forrest Green, Sky Blue, Chilli Red.

    Napa: Black, Petrol, Chocolate Brown, Grey, British Racing Green, Mustard, Burgundy.

    A little about DAS SNEAKER: It's much like our original shoe, but with some cunning deviations...

    1) more EVA cushioning beneath the heel - to give more bounce and 1cm additional height to the wearer.
    2) a rubber sole that is 2mm thinner, for greater flexibility... so you can really run in these sneakers, if you have to! 
    3) a lip of sole curving over the toe, for added protection and a classic 1970s sneaker look. 

    On the sole, you can have a fetching evolution of our original ICH BIN ATHEIST design, or one of two more neutral designs (a geometric Bauhaus pattern, or our homage to the Voyager Golden Records).

    The rest of the sneaker is as sumptuous as our existing shoe; calfskin lining, nubuck or napa upper, the same fit, and our "secret sauce"... the bauhaus design features that facilitate greater comfort.

    Vegan-Friendly SNEAKER

    We've been making vegan shoes for 3 years now. It can be a challenge, to strike the right balance between robustness and breathability, but we have found a supplier whose material we trust and those vegans who've worn our shoes claim they're the most comfy non-leather shoes they've ever owned. The material we use is chiefly made of recycled plastic and we can only guarantee that we'll have one colour (black) although more colour options may be available... no promises just yet!

    1 pair of DAS SNEAKERs in Pull-up Cognac

    This reward entitles you to one pair of sneakers, in "pull-up" cognac, the most special leather we've ever worked with.

    The leather gets its name because, when pulled or stressed, the oils and waxes cause the colour to migrate and become lighter in certain areas. As such, the boot leather will tell the story of its wear, acquiring a distressed, aged look. And the beautiful thing is that if you rub the leather the appearance and colour of the leather will renew itself.

    Tour our workshops in Porto & Berlin

    Spend a leisurely week with us, in the two cities we call home, as we welcome you behind the scenes at ATHEIST Shoes. We'll introduce you to all of our favourite sites and people, and give you a crash course in the realities of running a handmade shoe business. We'll also create for you a bespoke last, unique to your foot and have you be involved in the first phase of production of your new shoes (you'll be going home with several pairs)! And there will of course be lashings of vinho verde, exquisite German and Portuguese cuisine, and maybe even a couple of games of Monopoly Deal.
