Continuing with her recent interest in shoe design, Daniela pointed me to the Atheist Shoes website which a friend had told her about. Probably one of the things we liked best is the catchy line on their impressively over-funded kickstarter page: “Now atheists have soles too!”

What seems to have started as a semi-goof, took off on reddit and then kickstarter, taking the prototype of the godless, Bauhaus-inspired shoe and making it a reality. Sure, the handmade, nice quality leather shoes look nice, but the concept is what really appeals to us. From the atheist soles to the black hole logo (“an inviting void, an exquisite blank canvas, begging to be filled with something meaningful to you”), to the idea of donating 10% of their profits to secular charities, demonstrating that you don’t need god to be good.

You can find out more about the background story on their kickstarter page and video, and if you’d like to buy a pair, you can do that here.
