This is a true limited edition, in that it is not only our will that prevents it from becoming a mainstay in our range, but the actuality that (a) the leather involved no longer exists anywhere on this planet except in these sneakers, or in its cousin Chris da Brogue, and (b) it will never exist again in the future, as our tannery friends in the Netherlands have manufactured it for very the last time. 

Not to be too funerial about it, however, because this is a sneaker brimming with life, nay even life-giving. We imagine the tanner might have visited an Anish Kapoor exhibition before settling on such a rich, succulent, biological, "interior" red. No one does red better than Kapoor and this is the closest yet we've felt to our favourite artist. 

And yes, this is exactly the same leather as features in Chris da Brogue, but a Lady in Red branding whimsy doesn't deserve to stretch to a second product. 

What can we say about this most limited of limited edition sneakers?

The leather is calfskin, the same calfskin as used on the inside of our shoes - so effectively this is a shoe with lining leather on the inside and the out, making it very very soft and comfortable. It's a scarcely processed leather, meaning the natural variance in tone and texture remains visible in the leather (so don't be put off by small blemishes and dimples... they really are a virtue, as a more perfect-looking leather is only so because it has been plasticised and homogenised). 

And the sole is a traditional sneaker sole, a balance of EVA for bounce and dense rubber for durability, embossed with our tribute to Carl Sagan's Golden Records, and the VOYAGER and PIONEER space missions.

green measuring tape - Atheist Shoes

Begin by finding out the length of your foot in cm (see the graphic below on how to do that), then calculate your European size, according to this formula:

SIZE = 1.5 X (FOOT LENGTH IN CM + 1.5)

That means, if your foot length is 28.5cm, you should add 1.5, to give you 30. Then multiply 30 by 1.5, to give you a European Shoe Size of 45 (assuming you don't have a very wide foot, in which case you might want to consider going up one size to 46).

For a more detailed breakdown, see our size guide page. Or email us (hello@atheistberlin.com) with any sizing questions you might have.
