Atoms is a privately held footwear brand, based in Brooklyn, New York, that designs, develops and sells footwear. Atoms offers quarter size shoes and allows customers to buy pairs of shoes in two different sizes.
Atoms was founded by husband and wife Waqas Ali and Sidra Qasim in San Francisco. In 2012, they started their first footwear company Markhor in Pakistan, while working with craftsmen in their hometown of Okara, Pakistan. In 2015, the couple moved to Mountain View as part of Y Combinator’s accelerator program. Atoms idea was inspired by the challenges that most people still wear shoes that don’t fit them right. Founders wanted to design a shoe that people would use every day.
